Upon exploring deep depths of the internet, I managed to find the person responsible for adding in the false airdates on this wiki. It all started when Wikipedia created a SpongeBob episode list as far back as Thursday, {{Time|December 15}}, {{Time|2005}} in [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=List_of_SpongeBob_SquarePants_episodes&diff=31416278&oldid=31416251 this edit]. Although, the earliest edits on that page didn't even have airdates. It would just say stuff like "Season 3 aired from {{Time|2001}} to {{Time|2004}}" and then just list the episode titles within that season. Even back in 2005, the list of SpongeBob episodes was a target for vandalizing and adding in fake episode titles which had to be constantly reverted, like in [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=List_of_SpongeBob_SquarePants_episodes&diff=32495368&oldid=32494420 this edit]. It was not until 2 weeks later that month on Thursday, {{Time|December 29}}, 2005 that AMK152 finally started adding in airdates to the list of SpongeBob episodes Wikipedia page in [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=List_of_SpongeBob_SquarePants_episodes&diff=prev&oldid=33153829 this edit]. And yes, it was already confirmed a while ago about that the AMK152 on Wikipedia was the same [[User:AMK152|AMK152]] who is on this wiki. Anyways, AMK152 was unfortunately adding in false airdates on Wikipedia back in late 2005. Although AMK152 probably wasn't aware of the false airdates back then. [[User:CDCB2|CDCB2]] even stated how TV.com was one of the earliest sources used for SpongeBob airdates, even though they got several airdates wrong. I would presume that [[User:AMK152|AMK152]] was using the TV.com airdates as a source back when he was adding them to list of SpongeBob episodes Wikipedia page. [https://www.nickandmore.com/episode-lists/spongebob-squarepants/ The SpongeBob SquarePants episode list by NickandMore] is definitely correct about how the wrong airdates were unfortunately being passed around for many years.

Upon exploring deep depths of the internet, I managed to find the person responsible for adding in the false airdates on this wiki. It all started when Wikipedia created a SpongeBob episode list as far back as Thursday, December 15, 2005 in this edit. Although, the earliest edits on that page didn't even have airdates. It would just say stuff like "Season 3 aired from 2001 to 2004" and then just list the episode titles within that season. Even back in 2005, the list of SpongeBob episodes was a target for vandalizing and adding in fake episode titles which had to be constantly reverted, like in this edit. It was not until 2 weeks later that month on Thursday, December 29, 2005 that AMK152 finally started adding in airdates to the list of SpongeBob episodes Wikipedia page in this edit. And yes, it was already confirmed a while ago about that the AMK152 on Wikipedia was the same AMK152 who is on this wiki. Anyways, AMK152 was unfortunately adding in false airdates on Wikipedia back in late 2005. Although AMK152 probably wasn't aware of the false airdates back then. CDCB2 even stated how TV.com was one of the earliest sources used for SpongeBob airdates, even though they got several airdates wrong. I would presume that AMK152 was using the TV.com airdates as a source back when he was adding them to list of SpongeBob episodes Wikipedia page. The SpongeBob SquarePants episode list by NickandMore is definitely correct about how the wrong airdates were unfortunately being passed around for many years. Wikipedia is a fine example of a SpongeBob episode list dating as far back as 2005. About 2 years later in 2007, this wiki was created. The SpongeBob episode list on this wiki was created on Monday, August 20, 2007 by founder Haldir in this edit. If you compare what the SpongeBob episode list on Wikipedia looked like around the time the SpongeBob episode list was created on this wiki, you'll notice how both pages look exactly the same. This is because the Wikipedia version was just copied and pasted onto this wiki. Although, this was done for several reasons such as lack of a proper template system back then. Even AMK152 had admitted that a lot of the early SpongeBob wiki pages were migrated over from Wikipedia at the time. That's the reason why this wiki has the Wikipedia template.

So technically speaking, AMK152 was the user responsible for adding in the false airdates on Wikipedia and Haldir was the user responsible copying those false airdates and putting them onto this wiki. I don't blame them though. Because outside of TV.com, it was definitely harder to find reliable information on the airdates back in 2005. YouTube was just starting out back in 2005. The SpongeBob episode list on this wiki was created a year after I started watching SpongeBob SquarePants for my first time in 2006. Plus considering I was born in 2000, I would have been too young to be editing this wiki back in 2007. Even the ESB:Rules page states how it's against Fandom policy for a person under the age of 13 to use Fandom. Out of all the "reliable sources," the 2004 SpongeBob Exposed! The Insider's Guide to SpongeBob SquarePants might have just been the best source for SpongeBob airdates back then. Especially since the SpongeBob episode list on Wikipedia was created in 2005, but the SpongeBob digital releases on iTunes date back to 2006 according to the List of digital DVDs page. Likewise, The First 100 Episodes DVD didn't officially exist until years later in 2009.
