Encyclopedia SpongeBobia turns 12 today. Can't believe we've turned 12 years old, here's to many more years!
Been an absolute pleasure to see the wiki grow over the years and I can't wait to see how we develop further. With the 20th anniversary of the show this year too, ESB truly is looking like the place to be!
Leave your favorite memories from the wiki below. :)
Happy 12th anniversary! I don't know if I could choose a favorite memory. I loved the day that I found out about this wiki in the first place. I was so happy to see such a dedicated community of fans working to make a database for the show.
12 years since the founding of Encyclopedia SpongeBobia, a FANDOM wiki, which was then known as the "SpongeBob SquarePants Wiki" on Wikia. We have come a long way and it is hard to believe that I was there for the beginning, and not only that, the precursor project known as WikiProject SpongeBob SquarePants on Wikipedia, established in 2006.
We have come a long way, been through ups and downs, especially in the tumultuous 2014-2016 years, and then since came out of that united, and focused more on modernization and user experience efforts as more people use mobile platforms.
SpongeBob SquarePants has been going strong for nearly 20 years. SpongeBob has surpassed the legacy of most cartoons, and is certainly up there with Scooby-Doo, Mickey Mouse and the gang, and the Looney Tunes.
SpongeBob has also stood the test of time; most young people who watch SpongeBob nowadays were born around the time Encyclopedia SpongeBob was founded. Anyone turning 15 years old this year was born the same year as the first movie. Not only was SpongeBob a multi-generational cartoon loved my all generations when it first got its start, the new Generation Z has also grown to be fans of SpongeBob as it continues to air new episodes and serve as a major part of animation pop culture.
Here's to 12 years of ESB, and 20 years of SpongeBob, and many more!
Sorry for replying late but happy birthday to this wiki! I've been on this wiki since 2016 and while I don't use it anywhere near as much as I used to, I still love this wiki a lot and I hope to continue using it for several more years to come!
Help Wanted was first released on May 1st 1999. Looks like we have got 4 days until we reach the 20th Anniversary. In the meantime, I could make this special mention in another post. Perhaps some kind of Anniversary Resolutions or something may sound cool to do (even though I hate writing up New Years Resolutions).
