r/place was Reddit's April Fools joke for 2017. Basically, it was a 1000 x 1000 pixel blank 'canvas'. Anyone with a more-than-a-month-old Reddit account could place a pixel on the canvas in one of 16 colors, but they then had to wait 5 minutes before placing another pixel. The idea was to encourage people to work together and create something.
It was pretty popular, there were a bunch of 'factions' trying to make different things, etc. If you want to know more about that just YouTube search "history of r/place".
r/place was shut down after 72 hours, almost immediately after that remakes started popping up like weeds.
r/place's slogan was 'Individually you can create something. Together we can create something more.'
...problem is, most people just banded together into little tribes. Kinda like life.
