The SBC Renaissance marked the end of the ongoing conflict between founder of The SpongeBob Community, terminoob, and administrator that70sguy92. It was celebrated by the Community as 70s became the sole Main Admin.

June 21st, 2010 Incident and Aftermath

On June 19, 2010, tvguy347 was briefly made an admin by 70s to fix a technical issue. The following day, terminoob resigned his position as a Main Admin, citing tvguy's impromptu addition as an admin the "straw the broke the camel's back." Prior aggravations expressed by terminoob can be found in his original resignation topic here. Reaction to terminoob's departure were mixed.

On Monday, June 21, 2010 a major crisis occurred. Several issues to the skin occur. The site is unable to properly function; the navigation bar disappear, new users are prevented from registering, and profiles vanish. Although the Community suspected terminoob for the longest time, it is not known who/what was behind the event.

SBC then entered a new golden period; rules become lax, posting increases, and users express the feeling of liberation without terminoob's perceived negative presence. On July 28, 2010, ExKizuna reveals terminoob will be watching the site and ExKizuna will be supplying him with information (read the original conversation here). Later information reveals terminoob will delete SBC unless tvguy347 is removed from the administration. Per his demands, tvguy is removed as an administrator and ExKizuna assumes his position. This latter issue split the Community; prominent members like Wumbology and that70sguy92 expressed their distaste for terminoob's policies, whereas administrators jjsthekid and tvguy347 reverted their stance and stated they enjoyed terminoob's presence.
