Way long ago, when Aquatica was around, I was a lurking noob. It closed down, and I had nowhere to lurk, so I went to ssc. I joined, chatted with all of the oldies that none of the new members will remember, and helped out leading modding forward for a while before buying a bmw, and slowly fading out of the soaker scene. What's up everybody? :D

I joined soakerdom last month. I already had some super soakers but I had no Idea how good they were (CPS 2500). I was shocked to find out that there was a website like this but it looked intresting so I decided to join. Now I am hooked and I am trying to get my friends intrested.

I joined Soakerdom as an active community member last summer. This was a few months after I got back into soakers and if I remember correctly, after I got my signature and favourite weapon, my CPS 1000

Coming up on 5 years - granted, the last few I've spent on things other than these forums, but I still come back once in awhile to check.

I'm glad my definition of a "good water gun" is a CPS and not the cheap plastic junk Hasbro looks to be selling nowadays. Why, back in my day...er...*slinks off feeling old*
Rereading these forums make me feel old >.<

I joined soakerdom in summer 2000. I followed the link to Aquatica from Aquatechnology (now iSoaker.com)

I also ran a semi-prominent super soaker website that is still online (aquazone.frankism.net)

Hope to see some familiar faces!

I "joined" back in january of 2009, but that was the first time that I can remember lurking around these forums. I officially joined sometime in may of 2009, but never really posted until the new school year started. All of these other people make me feel really inexperienced. :rolleyes:

The first forum I joined was WWn in December of 2002, I believe. I'd love to dig through some of those old archives, if they are around somewhere.

Soakerdom is our most common lingo for the water warfare internet community. (i.e. Soakerdom is to SSCentral as NIC (Nerf Internet Community) is to NerfHaven.)

Got involved some time around 1999-2000, when I first saw sites like MiB and Everything Water. I originally contacted Aqua-Nexus, who had a partnership with iSoaker I believe. Told them I wanted to make a site that focused on soakers and mods (since there wasn't much out around that time) and was encouraged to do so! GnG was born, and had its heyday right up around when Aquatica fell apart. After that, involvement was sporatic, but was actually able to release a new website, although it was about 10% incomplete. 'Round 2006 I fell of the face of the earth and have been back only in a very limited capacity. Hopefully that might change!

Now. Just joined a few minutes ago.

Off topic question: Is it OK to bump topics like this where it is a more long term topic?
I posted regardless because there was no activity in this sub-forum.

It's fine when it's this type of topic (old, but open to new input).
