Current Forums

Krusty Krab

  • Bulletin Board: All news about The SpongeBob Community is posted here. It was originally called "Krabby Kronicle" from 2012 to 2023. Only staff can post new topics here.
    • Staff Lounge: Staff forum. Only Managers, Cashiers, Fry Cooks and Retired Employees have access. It is not used anymore in favor of Discord's staff chat, but is kept as a historic archive. The forum was thought to be a myth in the past; its existence is now widely known. It was possible for normal members to access the Staff Lounge with the now-defunct Become a Mod for a Day item. As of November 12th, 2012, regular members cannot access this forum under any circumstances, however for a time in 2014 a loophole allowed people to see it. The topics were publicly visible during the summer 2011 hack. Leaking out information from the forum to normal members previously resulted in punishment. From May 1st, 2020 to November 27th, 2020, several infamous threads from the Staff Lounge were shown weekly for Loyal Customers for "Staff Lounge Fight Fridays." It was temporarily renamed "Administration Lounge" and "The Secret Box" before being reverted both times.

    • Krusty Towers Check-In: Check in and introduce yourself to the SpongeBob Community! The forum was first introduced May 15th, 2011 and was called "Introductions" until Orca 8. This was originally a main forum under Krusty Krab, but is now a sub-forum as of Seahorse 15.
    • Sharing Time: Share your life story here! Guests cannot see this forum.
  • The Industrial Park: This is a wasteland; your topics don't have to make sense. This forum was first introduced in December 2011. It originally did not increase post or doubloon counts, but the restriction was lifted with Jellyfish 14. You originally also needed 25 posts to access it, making it the only forum to be locked behind a post count, but this restriction has also since been lifted. Guests cannot see this forum. Before these restrictions were lifted, posts and/or doubloons only counted in the forum during: a few King Neptune reigns, Customer Appreciation Day, 5 Year Anniversary, SBC's 7th Year Anniversary and April Fools 2019.
    • Takin' Out the Trash: This is the SBC dump, where we place all locked threads. You get hours of entertainment here if you wish to look at them. Only staff and Loyal Customers can view it. The locked threads consist of duplicates, threads deemed "non-desirable" from the staff, spam or drama. This forum was famous with early VIP groups such as Good Noodles, hence why it's a Loyal Customer exclusive. From September 9th, 2016 to January 16th, 2018, it was under┬áThe Secret Box, and then moved back to a sub-forum for The Industrial Park.
  • New Kelp City: Discuss all forms of media entertainment here! Originally named Downtown Bikini Bottom until 2023. It's known for holding SBC's Best and Worst of Entertainment threads.
    • Culture Shock: Discuss your favorite shows and movies here! Originally two separate forums known as "As See on TV" and "Reef Cinema" but were fused together in 2023.
    • K-BLUB: Discuss your favorite music and artists here! Home of Community Mixtape.
    • We Have Technology: Discuss your favorite video games, technology, YouTubers and websites here!
    • Goo Lagoon: Discuss sports, books, comics, hobbies, animals, foods, and anything else about lifestyle in this beachside board. This was a main forum until the January 2018 forum reorganization. It's known for housing the Wrestling thread.

Atlantis

Bikini Bottom Arcade

  • Eels and Escalators: Relax and play a game! Known for housing the SpongeBob Best Episode Tournament and SpongeBob Jeopardy! sign-up threads. This was originally two separate forums, one for general games and one for SpongeBob themed games, but they were fused together in January 2018.
    • Ask Me: Create a questionnaire thread and have others ask you questions! These originally started in the Games forum, but due to their popularity, were given their own sub-forum. At one point, post and doubloon counts did not increase here, but now they do. The concept of Ask Me threads were once criticized "an easy way to increase your post count", but people eventually stopped caring about this. This was at one point SBC's most active forum and a convenient way for communication, but is not used much anymore due to Discord.

Clubs

These forums exist through the Clubs feature without taking up space on the main forum. These three are only listed due to their history; not every individual Club forum will be listed here.

It was first introduced on December 29, 2010 and then removed on July 14th, 2014 due to lack of activity. It had a few limited time returns during Spin-Off Festivals as "Glove World Market." The concept now lives on as a Club.
  • Toy Barrel: A forum for discussing SpongeBob merchandise, first introduced in January 2012. Due to low activity it was brought back and retired several times. It now lives on as a Club.

Loyal Customers can suggest ideas to SBC staff, participate in polls on how to improve the community, receive sneak peeks and learn behind the scenes information.
