The #spongebob channel in March 2019.
|Registration Date||February 10th, 2018|
The SpongeBob Community Discord (SBC Chat) is an official chat server originally created by Mr. Dr. Professor Patrick and now owned by jjsthekid. It is based on the Discord chat platform. It was founded on June 28th, 2016, and was officially made a part of SBC on February 10th, 2018.
The SBC Discord was originally created for use with SpongeCraft, although it has expanded and become a successor to the aging SBC Xat, which was declared unofficial in January 2014, and which was later abandoned entirely in favor of Discord. With a steadily-increasing number of users, the Discord server has grown to become the main hub of socialization on SBC, with (as of September 1st, 2021) a total of 105 users and 4 bots (MEE6, Starboard, UnbelievaBoat and Chuu). As of September 1st, 2021, there are 4 chat categories, 1 voice category, and 1 archive category (check below for more details). Discord can run on various platforms, such as Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, and iOS. Alternatively, you can access Discord with the web app, available here. You used to be able to earn doubloons on the Discord, through Karen, but the feature was disabled in September 2018.

Originally made due to issues regarding the SpongeBob Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune, Dunces and Dragons, and SBC Music rooms, the #jeopardy channel was created on August 17th, 2018. On August 18th, 2018, #jeopardy was renamed to #duncesanddragons for the Dunces and Dragons game that would take place later in the day. On August 25th, 2018, the channel was renamed to #sbc-games to host games until the revamped rooms were finished. It was made read-only and archived on September 16th, 2018, due to the new game rooms having been finished.
The channel was later resurrected on February 28th, 2021 for March Madness 2021 to promote and play SBC games, staying a permanent channel ever since. This marks the first time a formerly archived channel was brought back to life.

A channel for discussing SpongeBob. It was created on September 19th, 2018, due to SpongeBob discussions clogging up #general and #tv-and-film.
A channel for discussing animation. This channel was created on March 20, 2019 due to animation-related content, such as Ren and Stimpy, becoming a popular topic on #spongebob.
Originally named #nsfw, this channel was intended to be a subsection for more mature content. The channel had become a hotbed for confusion for new members as a result of its name indicating that more mature content was meant to go there. In truth, the channel is rarely used for sexually mature topics and is instead traditionally used to post selfies and memes. The current pinned message reads as follows:
"ATTENTION: The NSFW channel is here for slightly more mature content that doesn't fit the general discussion thread as this Discord functions first and foremost a chatbox for a SpongeBob forum; the nature of the discussions had in the general discussion channel should be a reflection of the nature of our community. Conversations revolving around mature content will be directed here."
The channel originally gained much controversy due to sexually-explicit conversations between minors and adults occurring, which has lead to a shift in the channel's focus. The channel was renamed from "#nsfw" to its current on October 14, 2018.
The channel for venting and discussing personal issues happening in your life.

This channel was used for discussion of SpongeCraft, as well as for chat via the SpongeCraft bot. It was created on August 13th, 2018 due to the Discord deciding that SpongeCraft chat via the SpongeCraft bot should be in its own separate channel, instead of clogging up #general. It was temporarily read-only in September 2018 due to faulty SpongeCraft upgrade tests. After SpongeCraft shut down on September 19th, 2019, the channel was briefly used for shit-posting, before being archived on December 27th, 2019.
This channel is only used during the GCAs, during December 2018. Winners were announced by Patty Sponge, the host. It was used again during December 2019, where winners were announced by LocalAquatic, the host. They returned again during December 2020, where winners were announced by sbl.

After complaints about the sexual nature of the NSFW channel, the #trash channel was instated as a channel for spam, Doubloons are not gained for posting in #trash, as it is seen as a channel used for miscellaneous content. The channel name was coined by sbl. It was closed and archived on October 14, 2018.
