SpongeBob Universe is a SpongeBob site consisting namely of The SpongeBob Community, the SpongeBob Wiki, SpongyNews, iSponge, SpongeStore, and SpongeFan. The union was first formed on June 26, 2012, when Dylan reached out to AMK152 of the Wiki and proposed the idea. The ideas for additional branches of SBU were formulated over the coming months, with SpongyNews, iSponge, and SpongeStore being the results. SpongeBob Universe became an official union as of November 1st, 2012 when both of the two founding sites agreed to go forth with the formation of a SpongeBob ecosystem.
The goal of SpongeBob Universe is to establish a network of SpongeBob-related information and spread the word about the inclination of quality in post-Season 8 episodes of the show. The release date for SpongeBob Universe has been speculated to be on January 1st, 2013.
The idea of a creation document was first proposed by AMK152, and after writing and revising, a large document detailing the ideas and policies of SpongeBob Universe was voted upon on November 1, 2012 (http://sbcforums.com/forums/creationdoc.pdf). The document called for a democratic hierarchy based off of the existing staff system in place on The SpongeBob Community, and the central positions were filled in by members of both the Wiki, SBC, and outside areas.
At the moment, SpongeBob Universe is composed of The SpongeBob Community (forums), SpongeBob Wiki (knowledge base), SpongyNews (primary news source), iSponge (art gallery), SpongeStore (store), SpongeFan (fan fiction), and several social media pages (Tumblrs, Facebook pages, YouTube channels, etc.). With the exception of SBC, the Wiki, and the social media pages, all other branches of SpongeBob Universe were born as a branch of SBU.
