#throwbackthursday to /r/Place

On April Fools' Day in 2017, lasting 72 hours, over 1 million unique Reddit users spent countless of hours placing pixels on a canvas consisting of 1 million pixels (1000x1000). Each user could place 1 pixel before a timer was initiated, varying from 5 to 20 minutes of cooldown before the next pixel could be placed. The user could choose between 16 different colors. When the pixel was placed, anyone could paint over it with their pixel and it definitely caused a lot of frustration. After roughly 72 hours, when the experiment closed, over 16 million pixels had been placed on the canvas.

Personally, I fought alongside /r/Norge to create the Norwegian flag and different items such as Kvikk Lunsj and the cheese slicer, which is an important part of the Norwegian culture. With so many users fighting on such a limited space, it was bound to start arguments between communities. We allied with subreddits such as /r/Sweden, /r/TheNetherlands, /r/CrusaderKings, /r/PolandBall and /r/Factorio to avoid wasting time fighting our neighbors. However, since we wanted to make our flag as big as possible we also gathered some enemies such as /r/Texas, and they were really upset about us eating their flag. 
All in all it was a fantastic 72 hours and I got to meet a lot of fantastic people from all around the world. The Discord was jampacked with love, sweat and tears. Looking at the final canvas, we definitely made an impact and considering how small Norway is we were quite astonished over the  final result.

I even wrote an assignment a few days later about the whole experiment. I was quite literally obsessed. Thanks to the Reddit community for making this possible and thanks to everyone I met along the journey!

And I told you to be patient,
And I told you to be fine,
And I told you to be balanced,
And I told you to be kind,
And now all your love is wasted,
Then who the hell was I?
‘Cause now I’m breaking at the bridges,
And at the end of all your lies.

Wild roots, water dripping...lush greens...always landing real solid in my heart🌱
It’s morning time in Tokyo and I’m dreaming away to when I get to hold my next fresh and new canvas in my hands. Moving to Marbella in two weeks now! Until then I’m painting the world in my mind🎢🌿 .
