March 13th 2017

When I established the forums in 2005 it was to offer a more richer web experience and greater functionality than the platform where we started this social adventure in 2003, Yahoo Groups. The forums were once a busy hive of activity and provided locals and visitors with a wealth of information just like the Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group on Facebook today.

It was a time where we didn't have the many social media platforms we have today, and it was a different time in terms of mobility and technology. There was no instant access to information, no Google Maps and a very limited base map on your GPSr. Mobile connectivity for me was a 9600bps Infrared connection from a Nokia to a laptop and in later times to a PDA using WAP.

As we moved into the social media era so did our forums users. Geocaching Ireland moved there too, and we have a thriving community on the Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group on Facebook. As a result, forum activity isn't what it used to be and I have taken the decision to disable new registrations to the forums and to make the forums read only so any information there can still be accessed.

The discussion hasn't ended, it has just moved. Join us on the Facebook Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group .

Afraid I wouldn't be getting too bothered about 100 milestones once we passed the first ton, but getting 3000 up is cool.
Well done to Fjon who passed 3k this week on a challenging puzzle!

Just noticed TMSR just completed Loop-2 of their DT Matrix...! Mighty effort that. Only the 2nd cacher in Ireland to do it. Nicely done indeed.

Thanks Doug - you're to blame for pointing out the possibility of loops - we were happy to finish it in the first place!

Must be something in the water, or the extra hour of daylight, but the milestones keep tumbling.

gerpod1 passed 1400 at the weekend.
