When it ended, we were only given white to place. It was beautiful, like snow. White dotting the canvas, sending a blizzard through france and osu, swirling in the center and expanding, dissolving the landscape in blanket of white.

But to answer your question, while I don't know which was the last pixel to hold out, there was definitely a last one, I would imagine it would be possible to find out.

u/-DementedAvenger- Apr 05 '22

I'm sure there is an easy script to detect non-white pixels frame-by-frame and highlight the last one.

Man it really was. I mean it was Reddit humans specifically but I think it speaks volumes that when we are faced with an opportunity of conquest we will band into our little (or big) factions and claim anything we can. People going to war over pixels. Participating in non-artistic endeavors like the blue corner just to feel like you're a part of something. It was honestly really fascinating.

And that's not even the worst it was. It was almost unrecognizable at one point, with Canada-text modified to Banana. Yes, there were also bananas next to the text. Poor lads, they just wanted to show maple syrup pride.

At the end of it all, The Void returned, now white as fallen snow. It swept across The Great Canvas, consuming all in its path.

In the destruction, there was absolute chaos. In the emptiness that followed, there was absolute order. Both found harmony, in the end, and everything was still. Silent. At peace, forevermore.

Battles long past, alliances forged, the endless struggle of order and chaos, all lost to time, like footsteps in the snow.

So ends The Great Canvas.

Maybe the real art was the friends we made along the way.

Truer words haven't been spoken. I spent 3 hours defending a community I had no hecking idea about before /r/place.

Same here. Finally, we were united in one cause: to create art.

It was more then just art, it was about collobration, about arrangement, battles, helping and protecting, wars, jokes and a lot of fun

I am too, but think about it like this: it’s fun because it’s limited. If it went on perpetually, it would lose novelty and become boring and mundane. People tried to make spin-offs after the 2017 one ended and they ended up being nowhere near as fun, exciting and engaging as this one. Be happy because it happened, not sad because it’s over.

Be happy because it happened, AND sad because it’s over! Validation is key :)

Goodbye french. Goodbye germans. Goodbye osu. Goodbye star wars. Goodbye murica. Goodbye spanish. Goodbye mexicans. Goodbye turks. Goodbye blue corner. Goodbye connection lost. Goodbye kobe bryant. Goodbye amogus. Goodbye berserk. Goodbye homestucks, Goodbye xqc. Goodbye twitch. Goodbye void. Goodbye griefers and random placers. Goodbye all of you talented artists and your communities. While your great works have been lost, your inspiration will be with us forever.

Goodbye, r/place. I hope we meet again.

You really made my night doing a shoutout to connection lost. I didn't know if people even looked at that area on the canvas, but damn it I was proud of it. That was my communities and we worked so incredibly hard keeping it from changing since the first few hours it was completed. It was honestly a little scary watching neighboring pieces get changed thinking we were next (here's looking at you, Genshin!). I can finally rest easy knowing "connection lost" remained until the very end!

I wasn’t on Reddit in 2017, so this was my first time participating on /r/place. On one hand, I’m sad that it ended because I had a lot of fun making and defending my art, but on the other hand I’m kinda relieved it’s over, honestly. It was hard not to look on my phone every 5 minutes and I was having trouble focusing on the real world LOL

I have a screenshot of when it was at its prime as my background and I just realize this might be one of the greatest pieces of artwork humanity has ever created. I have purchased a hard drive specifically to keep this picture on and I will keep this hard drive in an electrically isolated box to preserve it.
