2016 on SBC. This year continued expanding upon forum events and games.
January to March
After the revival of SpongeBob Wheel of Fortune, it became a weekly game again, and became as popular as SpongeBob Jeopardy!. On January 20, 2016, the Shoutbox got an update. On the weekend of January 29, 2016, a mini-forum event happened to celebrate SpongeCraft's one year anniversary, called SpongeCraft Anniversary. It was a smaller scale forum event, and ended February 1, 2016. Another moderator application was held from January 29, 2016 to February 12, 2016 to replace CNF1, who had been less active on SBC. The winner was crushingmayhem. From February 12, 2016 to February 27, 2016, a new forum event on SBC happened called Freebooter Februarry. SBC Music 3.0 was released February 20, 2016. The fourth annual March Madness began March 1, 2016 and concluded March 31, 2016, as the Band Geeks and Drasticals face off each other again. The Drasticals won 29-24.
April to July
From April 1, 2016 to April 4, 2016, Plankton took over SBC again for April Fools 2016. It was an active weekend with a few Plankton related games. On May 8, 2016, MDPP made an archive for the Tv.com SpongeBob board after the Tv.com staff announced they would be removing their forums, so this was done to preserve a historic part of SBC. The 8th Golden Community Awards started May 15th, 2016, hosted by crushingmayhem. Spin-Off Festival 6 began May 20, 2016 and ended June 16, 2016. The 16th edition of Stop What You Are Doing, began June 22nd, 2016 and ended June 29th, 2016, with the theme of "thekid". A new teams event, called The Super Spongy Square Games, began July 1st and ended July 31, 2016, which the Band Geeks won. Blogs were added on July 12, 2016.
August to October
A new feature called SBC Radio was launched in August 2016. A new event called Summer Knights began August 12, 2016 and ended August 29, 2016. On September 9th, 2016, the forum layout received an overhaul, the first major one in roughly three years. On September 18th, 2016, SBC reached its 800,000th post, thanks to Kylie. Dunces & Dragons became a new weekly SBC game in fall 2016. Octerror Fest 2016 started October 14th, 2016 and ended October 31st, 2016, containing a teams tournament that everyone could play in, which the Drasticals won.
November to December
The Golden Community Awards IX started November 5th, 2016, hosted by JCM. Fred Rechid became a Cashier on November 11, 2016, following Patty Sponge's resignation. Customer Appreciation Weekend returned, lasting from November 25th-27th, 2016. Snowcember Ball 2016 started December 9th and ended December 29th; much like Octerror Fest, it contains a teams tournament everyone could play in. In the end, the Drasticals won.
