    Nice Robin. Took a photo of a friendly one at New Quay (West Wales) this week. He was a fat burgger though, fed on chips and burgers.

    emCache is coming back very soon.

    Recently we have gone through some very big admin and hosting changes. The site is up and online we are just waiting for the DNS records to be updated for its new site. This could take up to 48 hours but hopefully it won't.

    Keep checking back, we have not gone just going through a major update.

    emCache should now slowly be coming back online. It will depend on your ISP as to exactly when you get it again.

    Because of a dispute between some EMcache members and another cacher in the area (I understand some EMcache members have been reported to the police :wacko:, although who, and why is beyond me ), EMcache forums have been disabled. If you search for EMcache on google you will see the following message...

    As of 24/09/2012 emCache.com ceased operation.
    All content has now been permanently deleted.
    The following has been posted on Geocaching.com:
    It appears Jacaru and his followers have once again sabotaged yet another emCache hosted event, others may not be aware of a complaint he has lodged with the police against emCache. With that complaint in mind Iíll leave everyone else to work why he feels that he should continue to attend emCache hosted events Ė a group which he considers to have broken the law.
    This situation has gone miles past the ridiculous point and I think the time has come to pull the plug. emCache is in effect held hostage and to be frank I can no longer be bothered. I would appreciate if the remaining funds held by our treasurer are donated to a reputable and worthy charity.
    Many thanks to all who have taken part in the emCache community over the years and I hope you will enjoy tomorrows quiz, I intend to drop by for a short time. If I donít get chance to catch any of you tomorrow I wish you all the best for the future.
    I trust you are happy Jacaru, you have achieved your goal.

    Exclamation

    There are always 2 sides to a story, and you have posted just one side. The posted comments were made as a log to the EMCache Event, which has been Deleted.

    There is a lot of background history, a lot of which is not nice. The account posting the log, is a Sock Account. As the accounts owner had no wish to post it under his Primary account.

    As for

    It appears Jacaru and his followers have once again sabotaged yet another emCache hosted event,
    Which is in relation to a event which should have taken place this year. Please contact the owner of the Sock Account, or the Owner of the event referred to, and ask them to honestly explain why the event was Archived before taking place.

    Again there are 2 sides to a story. but you seem to be aware of just one at present.

    The owner of the Sock Account, is a member of this forum, maybe he will explain under that account?

    To avoid any misunderstanding bobbinz is not the owner of the Sock Account.

    I followed the event listing and read the posts/logs made so I am aware of some of the issues.

    I have been in email contact with Jacaru and been pleased to meet him at a number of events , to be part of his Facebook group and I would class him as a friend. Although I didn't realise he was so influential and had followers in such numbers

    I agree, but I don't know Jacaru's side of the story, in fact I don't know Any side of the story, and it was a bit of a shock when EMcache was deleted.

    I don't know what a 'sock' account is, and the owner's name is on the account if one looks about, I am not in the mind of the owner, therefore I do not know any motivation for posting it there.

    I am aware of this, but I think it is only right that everyone knows that Bobbinz handed over control of EMcache several months ago, so thanks for clarifying that.

    Thanks Deci for your post, and I for one would wish that people could get along, but as you say there is a lot of history, and I am not privy to this, and to be honest would rather not be involved at all. I know that on EMcache, there were mostly pleasant posts about Jacaru, and when there was one unecessary post (and I only ever saw one), it got deleted by the mods in short time.

    For those interested, the notification I put in my earlier post can be found here... http://www.tim-day.co.uk/emcache/?board=23.0

    I feel I should post here.

    I ran the emCache site as many of you probably know for a while and in the end had to pack it in for two main reasons:

    1 was that I had, and still have, little time for caching and the other being that emCache has been for a long time at the centre of a long running fight between two groups of cachers.

    This battle started a long time before I was a cacher and for a long time I ignored it and pretended it wasn't there. When I took over the emCache site almost 12 months ago exactly I was immidately inserted into the middle of this battle.

    I still show no interest in this fight and try not to take sides. I am still happy to call both sides my friends, although I never see them and one group is never happy to talk to me.

    I am very saddened to see the emCache site go as I made a lot of very long term friends through the group, spent a lot of time updating it and can honestly say it helped me through the hardest times of my life so far.

    Since dropping all caching activities sometime in February (ish) I have still been reading the forums and keeping up to date with the ever diminishing numbers of posts.

    I hope that the death of what I believe to be one of the strongest online communities ever teaches you all a lesson. Please be friends, put the past away, file it under B for Bin, M for Memories or whatever. Just put it away and cache on.

    If anybody still wants to carry on the emCache group I would be more than happy to step back up and take it on once more.

    Thanks,
    Bobbinz.

    I would like to add a MASSIVE thanks to Tim for setting the site up in the first place. I am sorry it has ended this way.

    See you around and enjoy more time with your wife and children, you deserve it.

    It was not a sock account, but I am the author of the statement and stand by it. Suggesting smudger105e is ignoring one side of a story is unfair as he was only quoting a closure notice.

    That is out of order, you of all people should know my "Primary account" has been subject to a ban which has been imposed since May - this is why the log was posted by proxy. Spinning that to give the impression I'm hiding is a new low even for you. If you had done some basic homework before posting you would have noticed the above had been cut'n pasted from my personal site - no hiding, no socks.

    I take it you missed the "two sides" bit

    This will be my last post on this thread, I'm taking the high ground and walking away. I suggest a GAGB mod monitors this topic VERY carefully.

    Sorry Tim, I had forgotten that your Primary account is Banned, and there is no indication of that fact on your Sock Account (I can discuss in private with you, the proof about the account being set up by you). And for forgetting that fact, I apologise.

    FYI, I did not remember, as I have had so much to deal with in regards to my Spouses health recently. That I ended up taking a unplanned break from Reviewing, to try and cope with what is happening at home. And I only occasionally cover East Midlands now, so have lost regular contact with what is happening in the Region.

    That is out of order, you of all people should know my "Primary account" has been subject to a ban which has been imposed since May - this is why the log was posted by proxy. Spinning that to give the impression I'm hiding is a new low even for you. If you had done some basic homework before posting you would have noticed the above had been cut'n pasted from my personal site - no hiding, no socks.
    Just so we are very clear, you accessed GC using your Sock Account to post the message? The copy of the message I saw, was posted to the EMCache Event page, and the Log had been Deleted (Reviewers have access to the Deleted logs)

    You have revealed you have been Banned from GC, yet the notification you received from Groundspeak in regards to that Ban, would have made it very clear that you were not to access the Site using any account? Because that is standard practice by Groundspeak.

    And can we make it clear, that the complaint to the Police was against 2 Named members of EMCache, not EMCache it's self. Because that is what publicly the person who made the complaint, has posted elsewhere.

    Please confirm if I have it correct that you have accessed GC despite being Banned? And the complaint was specifically against 2 named persons
