Reddit’s r/place made its original debut 5 years ago in 2017, but the popular social experiment made another appearance this year.

Not only is collaboration encouraged amongst users, but many popular subreddits partnered together – lending space for artists to place their work in their captured areas, in return for defending against trolls trying to reclaim the land.
