During the April 20, 2013 SpongeBob Universe meeting, there was discussion in regards to the name of the Wiki.

This is just a discussion so far and nothing is set in stone. I am going to list all the ideas that have come about during those meetings. Please give your comments on each with a <nowiki>{{support}}</nowiki>, <nowiki>{{oppose}}</nowiki>, or <nowiki>{{neutral}}</nowiki> as to what you think is a good or not so good name for the Wiki. Feel free to also add your own ideas. We should keep in mind the goal of our wiki:
