Many users, even those who did not watch SpongeBob regularly anymore, posted their respects. The ALS Fundraiser was started as a result of this.

Photobucket (a well known free image hosting site) required users to start paying money to hotlink (link the image somewhere else). Many of SBC's various threads included photos uploaded via Photobucket, and they were all replaced with a message asking users to upgrade their account. As a result of this, hilaryfan80 made a new part of the site asking LCs and other members to re-upload Photobucket pictures to other image sharing services, and all images were restored. SBC's 8th anniversary was celebrated on August 15th, 2017, and Squid 12 launched with a party dubbed the "Clarinet Recital".
