TheLocalAquatic - formerly known on the site as SpongeFan257, TheSpookyAquatic and TheJollyAquatic - while also being known as K. Sal or just by his first name (Kieran) directly - is a member who joined SBM on July 5th 2015. Despite this, his first post on the site is in fact dated as being February 1st 2017.
He currently resides in the United Kingdom and is 18 years old. On the forums, he does not appear to discuss SpongeBob SquarePants a majority of the time, instead preferring to post in the Nautical Nonsense and Arts & Entertainment forums. In addition to this, he is probably better known for his interests in Disney (especially The Little Mermaid), South Park and Taylor Swift.
Over the course of 2018, TheLocalAquatic became more active on SBM's Discord server than on the forum. On May 19th, 2018, TheLocalAquatic became a Chat Mod for SBM and its Discord, a week after the departures of HawkbitAlpha, Annielectric, and MrColeslaw. Even with his more frequent Discord appearances, he continued to visit the SBM forums and post on a fairly irregular basis. In July 2018, TheLocalAquatic resigned (both publicly and privately) from his position of SBM Chat Mod alongside CakeCup, as a result of personal differences in the staff's handling of issues on the forums. Following this, he makes occasional appearances on the forums but refuses to post.
As of April 5th, 2018, TheLocalAquatic has made over 1,480 active posts and has over 870 post likes. TheLocalAquatic has also won the October 2017 Award for Best Signature, while also being nominated for Best Positive Attitude and Favorite International Person within the same awards season.
