Some veterans will have seen this before, others may or may not have seen this. Here's an old Aquatica site:

[url='http://www.freewebs.com/aquatica/']Aquatica: Spirit of the Super Soaker[/url]

It feels slightly weird to look at sites like that. Makes one wonder what has been lost and gained since then. Ahh...*looks wistfully into middle distance*

Submit your saga and see it up with other titans of water warfare.

Heh, I remember when they were making that site!

There also is the [url='http://winkyweirdow.tripod.com/aquatica.htm']earlier Aquatica site[/url], during iSoaker's term as owner. This particular version was what I saw when I first joined Aquatica.

I still find the [url='http://groups.yahoo.com/group/aquatica2/']oldest Yahoo group to be the best source of information[/url]. As usual, I have a complete archive of the Yahoo Aquatica just in case anything happens.

(You can make a similar archive by using [url='http://groups.yahoo.com/group/aquatica2/messages/1?viscount=100&expand=1']this URL to save mass quantities of posts[/url].) ;)

I'm not a member of that group, so I can't see it. Could you post that link in a publically viewable page?

No I couldn't. I had no idea that membership was required (been a member for a few years). Just join that group and you'll be able to see all you need.

Most of Aquatica is your normal rather boring discussion, however, some of it is very interesting! Just do a search for something and you're bound to find something interesting. Most information is outdated (as expected), especially regarding all things water gun technology.

Evidently it is no longer possible to join that group. I do have a Yahoo ID, but that didn't help, as the Aquatica group page has no "join this group" button and/or links.

That is very odd. I suppose the only thing you could do until I find my copies of all the posts is to ask iSoaker to make it joinable once again. Not that my copies are in a very readable format -- only easy to save.
