Reddit Users Participate in Elaborate Collaborative Canvas Made of 1 Million Pixels

This year Reddit celebrated April Fool’s Day with Reddit Place, a virtual blank canvas made up of one million pixels. Users were invited to colour in a pixel but with the caveat that they had to wait 5-10 minutes before colouring another. The sub ran for 72 hours with the simple prompt:

There is an empty canvas.
You may place a tile upon it, but you must wait to place another.
Individually you can create something.
Together you can create something more.

Taking the last line to heart, entire communities emerged on the basis of wanting a particular corner to be a specific colour or those with grander goals in mind like The Starry KnightsMona Lisa Clan or Black Void.
