Reddit is one of the most popular sites today, and no matter what your interests are, you will surely find some useful in these forums. Of course, there are also quite rare things, like the war that is being carried out at this time where its users are fighting to control one of these forums with pixel art.
It all started when in 2017, Josh Wardle , creator of Wordle and that at that time I worked for Reddit , the idea of creating a subnetdit known as R / Place * *, where users could create pixel art collectively, allowing each of them to place a pixel every five minutes. This was originally a joke of April Fools **, but eventually it was ended becoming a social experiment, and having been absent for five years, he is now back.
R / Place now has twice as many users, which during the last four days have been fighting for controlling this space with Pixel Art to express its solidarity by Ukraine and the rights of trans people, But at the same time, we also have the trolls who seek to ruin the experience for every1. Many communities have even allied to counteract these Trolls and master the space with illustrations of all kinds, including some of Elden Ring.
This subnetdit was temporarily closed on yesterday, April 4, so the battle between communities has come to an end. At least for now, since we do not know if this space will be open again next year.
