I'll cut to the chase: SB Wiki is leaving Wikia. Before you angrily protest, let me explain. The SpongeBob fandom has been declining since around the middle of Season 4. The common consensus is that anything past the movie has been absolutely horrible. However, fans of the show know that Season 8 neared Season 2-quality with episodes like Planet of the Jellyfish, Ghoul Fools, Home Sweet Rubble, The Krabby Patty That Ate Bikini Bottom, Mermaidman Begins, and many others. Season 9 is shaping up to be even better, possibly being another Season 2.
So, SpongeBob Universe has been formed. What is SpongeBob Universe? An ecosystem of SpongeBob awesomeness, primarily involving The SpongeBob Community and the SpongeBob SquarePants Wiki. We will be moving to a new site. It will be revolutionary... amazing... jawdropping. It will have SpongyNews (the news site that anyone can edit for SBU), a unified live chat, iSponge (for all your SpongeBob art), the SpongeFan Wiki, and in the future, SpongeStore (for all your SpongeBob merchandise needs).
It will revolutionize the SpongeBob fandom in ways you didn't think possible. Full episodes of Season 8 and 9 episodes will be offered on the main SBU site. You will need only one account to log into the SpongeBob Community Forums, the SpongeBob Wiki, the SpongeFan Wiki, SpongyNews, and iSponge. It will be seamlessly integrated. Everything will just work. Your editing counts have been transferred.
When does it launch? New Years. Join us for a countdown party in this chat here on New Years Eve to countdown to SpongeBob Universe, as well as 2013. If you have any questions, feel free to edit this page in the section below! :) Please do not edit this portion of the page.

It will be sad to see this wiki go. I got most of my spongebob knowledge from here :'( Oh well. I can't wait 'till Spongebob Universe launches! :D Spongebobfan234 (talk) 02:49, December 29, 2012 (UTC)
I wonder how this is going to effect a lot of people here. . . NyanGirToastNinjaShadow 03:12, December 29, 2012 (UTC)
From what I seen on the comments section of iDylan's original announcement, iDylan apparently said the SBC Forums will be relocated to a different URL (spongebobuniverse.com/forums instead of sbcforums.com/forums) but will still look exactly the same. Will something similar happen to everything that's on this wiki?

- I assume that a code will be placed on this wiki that will redirect you to the new one. --ClassicNickelodeon Fan 1
I can't believe that this wiki closed. I'm going to miss this wiki. I've been reading it for quite some time now, but I'm also pumped for SBU! Woo! -Maximagination
What is going to happen to this wiki after it shuts down? --Spongebob Fix-itPants
- Is wikia like deleting the wiki? --Spongebob Fix-itPants
- No, as I said, this Wiki will be redirected to the new site. Tvguy347 (talk) 18:29, December 29, 2012 (UTC)
