2021 is the twelfth year of SBC, and the current year.
January to March
Early in the year, the spin-offs and literatures section saw a rebirth of sorts thanks to the combined efforts of Steel, OMJ, jjs and other users. The Pet or Pests Festival, a Sponge on the Run tie-in and pets themed event, was held from February 12th to February 27th, 2021. March Madness 2021 then occurred throughout the month afterwards, where the Krusty Krew, Chum Buddies and Solos faced off for the second year. The Krew won in the end 25-12-8. Among Us became an official SBC game starting with this event, which has proven to be popular with members.
April to June
Jellyfish 14, SBC's 14th version, was released on April 3rd, 2021, which marked the site's update to IPS 4.5. With it came several features: three new skins, Topic Summary, the return of turntable.fm for SBC Music's newest incarnation, .fmbot for Discord, updated rules and more. The 35th Stop What You Are Doing was held in early May, with a theme of memes; the second time SBC has done such a SWYAD theme since 2010. Spin-Off Festival 10 occurred from May 21st to June 15th, 2021, which had more of a focus on the writing side than game side this time around. Continuing off of the revival from early in the year, it provided the most activity the spin-off and literature section had in a few years.
July to September
Cha resigned from staff on July 10th, 2021 to focus on her personal life. SBC's summer teams event, the SBC Grand Prix lasted from July 12th to July 31st, 2021. This event saw the debut of SBC Kahoot as the new trivia replacement.
