Spin-Off work on SBC had seen a remarkable drop in 2012, which frightened everyone on the site. It is believed that the lack of reviews for users Spin-Offs is the primary cause for less activity with Spin-Offs. Users had made attempts to save Spin-Off reviewing by making "The SBC Spin-Off Club", which is similar in format to the "SBC Weekly Episode Club"
Spin-Offs (and Literatures, by extension), have often been regarded as a historically important part of SBC's community and identity, extending from the origin of the craft on TV.com. Several works over the years have achieved board-wide attention and popularity. Spin-Offs recieve awards and nominations at events such as the The Golden Community Awards and Spin-Off Awards (defunct). An annual Spin-Off Festival is also held, which began in 2010. The festival marks a period of site-wide recognition of both Spin-Offs and Literatures, while highlighting content creators. Games and contests are also provided in celebration.
From 2010 to 2012, a store system was set up around Spin-Offs, called Glove Universe (formerly Glove World), which allowed users to spend and trade doubloons, centering on Spin-Off related merchandise. Glove Universe was removed due to lack of interest, but returns for short periods during particular Spin-Off Festivals. It has now returned somewhat permanently as a club.
