My Story

I started watching SpongeBob SquarePants from the beginning, in 1999. It was in December of 2005 when I stumbled across SpongeBob's series of articles on Wikipedia for the first time. I became an active editor of several articles. On June 6, 2006, I was a founding member of WikiProject SpongeBob SquarePants at Wikipedia, along with founder ForestH2. The WikiProject grew to see that we were able to keep track of and improve all SpongeBob-related articles on Wikipedia.

In 2007, there were a series of events unfolding on Wikipedia that threatened many of the articles and content involved. The concern was over articles of works of fiction, and there were claims that individual episode articles were not relevant to Wikipedia, with the exception of certain series. On May 8, 2007, the issue was brought to the articles regarding SpongeBob SquarePants. I and others fought to preserve those articles on Wikipedia. A heated debate engulfed the Project and several contributors of SpongeBob articles, even after the May 14, 2007 redirecting of all articles to the episode list article. This, of course, put the now orphaned title cards and related images in jeopardy. Luckily, I was able to save every image I could before it was deleted from Wikipedia.

I made my first edit to the SpongeBob SquarePants Wiki on May 29, 2007. Seeing that it would be almost impossible to bring back the articles on Wikipedia, I proceeded to do a massive project involving the migration of all SpongeBob-related articles to this Wiki. After I had successfully migrated the articles over, I was able to see their preservation. A few editors joined me, and we soon began to transition the articles from a Wikipedia looking article to our own SpongeBob version.

I had joined the wiki just a month after it was created. The admin, Haldir, was inactive. After a series of vandalism that I was only able to control through reversion, I was granted administrative powers on October 7, 2007. On February 4, 2008, I became bureaucrat for the Wiki.

Since then, I have been working on this Wiki, with occasional edits to articles at Wikipedia. In February of 2009, Rgoodermote joined me as a second active administrator. Several other contributors became administrators to help me maintain this growing wiki.

In the summer of 2012, I was approached by Tvguy of The SpongeBob Community Forums regarding a collaboration of the wiki with the forums. After exchanging a series of e-mails and a successful discussion to accept the proposal, the SpongeBob SquarePants Wiki joined SBC to forum a collaborative project to be called SpongeBob Universe.

I have been working with several contributors and administrators here and staff from SBC to plan and create SpongeBob Universe. I especially appreciate the hard work of everyone, especially my fellow administrators, even when my college education and work has left me very busy. I am excited to continue to work on developing this wiki and building and expanding SpongeBob Universe over the next several months. I am always willing to help with anything, so please leave me a message if you need something.

When SBU failed, I decided to continue Project Cleanup. Additionally, I am working on preparation for a massive project for 2014.

My favorite episode?

I would have to say that my favorite episode is "Pizza Delivery." Every single line in the episode is classic. Everything about that episode is funny. To make it easier to analyze, I will make a list here.

  1. SpongeBob's eagerness to answer the phone
  2. A typical Mr. Krabs eager to make money despite it being after closing
  3. The guy orders a Pizza from a burger joint.
  4. Squidward reminding Mr. Krabs, but Mr. Krabs making a pizza anyway
  5. "WE don't deliver, but YOU do."
  6. SpongeBob's eagerness to join Squidward
  7. SpongeBob's checklist
  8. SpongeBob gets nervous then backs it up
  9. Backing up, backing up, backing up
  10. Squidward worries up the gas in the boat, SpongeBob worries up the pizza
  11. The Krusty Krab Pizza song
  12. "And my feet are killing me"
  13. Hitchhiking
  14. "Well I don't" [SpongeBob freezes] "Squidward!"
  15. Squidward defies the moss' directions
  16. The song continues
  17. Squidward tries to get SpongeBob to eat the pizza
  18. Saved! Saved! Saved! Saved!
  19. "It's not just a boulder! It's a rock"
  20. Squidward complains about the pioneers, is run over
  21. Where's my drink?
  22. "Work? Oh my aching tentacles."
  23. Squidward calls SpongeBob Jethro. Twice.

Yeah, it's a pretty awesome episode.
