sbl (stylized in lowercase) is a user on The SpongeBob Community who joined on February 5, 2013. Originally registered as spongeboblover and then subsequently known as Patrick Star, sbl joined the community during the member spike in 2013. He joined when he was 8 years old, making him the youngest user on the site at the time. He revealed his age and sex in a topic and offered doubloons to whoever guessed the correct answers. He was the Employee of the Month in January 2016, and was also one of the most active players on SpongeCraft Classic. He is one of the few Canadian members on SBC.
During his early days in the community, sbl was known to be annoying and immature due to his age. He was hated by a few users. After maturing over the years, his company is enjoyed by many in the community today. His admirable and humorous traits, together with his contributions, make him an integral part of the community.
He is active, mostly on the Discord server, but also on the forums. He was a member of the Band Geeks until Teams 3 was disbanded. He was an Operator of SpongeCraft Classic from July 6th, 2017 to the server's discontinuation in September 2019. On September 11th, 2018, sbl was made moderator of the SpongeCraft forum. Subsequently, around the same time, he was also given access to the technical aspects of SpongeCraft. He aided in managing updates, features, and tidiness for the game until its discontinuation. In July 2023, he returned to the position of Operator with the launch of SpongeCraft Frontiers.
sbl was made the Featured Employee for Spring 2019. On February 28, 2020, he was drafted into the Krusty Krew for the fourth incarnation of Teams, and on Christmas Day 2020, sbl became a Fry Cook. His appointment to the role filled the year-long vacancy that Patty Sponge had left ever since she became an admin the previous year. He was the lead designer for Seahorse 15, which was released on April 8, 2023. sbl was promoted to an admin on December 25, 2023.
