After a few days setting up, the new version of The Art of Soaking seems to be up and running relatively smoothly. The biggest back-end challenge remains ensuring that the site remains spam/bot-free while allowing any real Users the ability to register and post if they wish.
Well, thanks to a faulty phpbb upgrade attempt, the previous forums on The Art of Soaking have been wiped. While I had attempted to back-up the site before doing the upgrade, even the back-up failed to restore the content.
As such, I’ve decided to ditch the previous phpbb installation and will be rebuilding The Art of Soaking now via WordPress.
Will be setting things up on the back-end for a little bit, but on the bright side, the actual image content is not lost – merely presently hidden. I’ll report the lost images soon.
Thanks for your patience and understanding during this rebuilding phase.
Never too late for a Fall water fight!

Not sure on its effectiveness for hiding (need more splotched to break up the big yellow reservoir area), but it is an interesting variant on the original colour scheme of the Water Warriors Python 2.
