History of SpongeBuddy Mania
SpongeBuddy Mania has been active as a site and a forum since April of 2004. SBM's golden era lasted from 2004-2009, with the most registered members ever online in one day being recorded on April 1, 2006. Many of the old members left due to growing older and taking on additional responsibilities. From autumn 2010 through 2011 usage of the forums had a period of inactivity. Today, in the year 2014, forum traffic has rebounded considerably, but the bulk of members now belong to a new, younger generation with little knowledge of the website's past and the lore associated with it. The most amount of users online ever has increased since the golden era and continues to grow, now at 214 on July 15, 2016.
