My Little Pony r/Place

Bronies were victorious! Documentary video coming soon.

If you have information or media which may be useful to my documentary about bronies on 2022's r/Place please get in contact. Check out my video about the 2017 event if you haven't already, but it may be obvious at this point that 2022 was a much bigger event.

👉 Check this Twitter thread for a list of useful video information. Thanks for the help!



This page will eventually include a recap but for now it remains as it was in the final hours.



STATUS

The new, large Derpy appears to have been pushed by a streamer and destroyed art in the process. Read more below under "Derpy."

We've been frequently targeted by Twitch bullies with hundreds of thousands of viewers, but we have always been able to rebuild over time. Other groups have noticed this unfair treatment and we have many allies which support us.

Join Manechat at the link below for the most current info. Above all, we need to stick together and stay organized.

We have already made r/Place history thanks to our resilience and our friendship with amazing allies! Keep it up!

G5 Crystal & Ponies

It has also been continuously targeted by Twitch bullies, but the overlay/bot template also has promise for including many allies.

Location

Salute Dashie 2

Salute Dashie found a new home on the lower part of the canvas among many allies and other smaller pony references. As usual, she has been frequently attacked by streamers but continued to rebuild.

Location

Derpy

The newer, larger Derpy has been pushed by a large streamer and took out multiple smaller communities. Most bronies disagree with this aggression. Communication has been difficult due to language barrier.

Don't spend pixels on the larger Derpy. Focus on defending our other ponies, the previous smaller Derpy, and allies.

The group behind Derpy is our ally and has helped us throughout r/Place. However, Derpy has been accused of being more aggressive than other ponies. The majority of bronies don't condone aggressive expansion.

Other ponies

Thanks to our growing forces and help from allies, we now have the ability to quickly deploy new ponies spread all around the canvas.

This webpage won't be updated to include them all, since some smaller ones are best left unknown to avoid being bullied.

Original Salute Dashie [RIP]

After the famous battle with the Ukraine flag which will go down in r/Place history, we've been attacked by multiple Twitch bullies with tens of thousands of viewers. Dashie returned many times, however it does not seem likely for the original Salute Dashie to return without help from a previous ally. Don't waste pixels on her unless we have that support.

r/Beserk is our ally. We helped to build the memorial. Don't let a bully turn us against each other.

Location

The bronies are a friendly, peaceful group on r/Place. Our mission is to spread the magic of friendship and to celebrate a fun cartoon.

r/Place WAS originally expected to end in:

NOTE: The countdown is based on an official blog post, however a more recent Reddit post suggests the end time may be a surprise.

It may work in our favor for r/Place to end at an unknown time. It will be down to luck whether the Twitch bullies happen to target us at that particular time.

Day One Timeline

  • We made many allies, and things were going well during preparations days before the event started.

  • r/Place opened, and Dashie was one of the first artworks created. It was amazing, and everyone who helped should be proud.

  • Just as we were finishing Dashie, the Ukraine flag invaded. We tried our hardest to be friendly and accept them as an ally, but it didn't work out and we were overrun from the neck up.

  • Dashie's lower half was maintained for a long period of time and held off multiple attacks from vandalism and bandwagon factions with the hope of flags becoming more accommodating of art. We were in it for the long-haul, hoping to end r/Place as one of multiple artworks showing support for Ukraine.

  • Our attempts to ally with Ukraine only further divided us, as people disagreed on what text to write and how to fly their flag to show friendly support.

  • Divided, Dashie fell after many, various attacks. We were accused of being anti-Ukraine, when really all we wanted to do was salute them by reclaiming the territory previously taken from us.

  • Our Derpy ally moved, and was holding very strong until a Twitch Streamer raided her. Later Derpy moved to the top of Osu, and was raided by the same streamer who claimed to be "brony hunting."

  • Dashie made incredible progress reclaiming the original territory and even worked with Rainbow Road in the art-ification of the flag, once again making r/Place history. Unfortunately, the bully streamer returned and attacked multiple times. Soon, the griefers got bored and Dashie maintained a strong presence for quite some time.

  • The void engaged in a massive attack on many groups, but especially concentrated on Dashie [likely with the assistance of Twitch stream griefers.] While successful at first, we soon recovered from the attack. It seems around this time other non-brony factions took notice of our saga and have been lending their pixels. Thank you!

Apologies for not updating this more!

Lots has happened since day 1, I just haven't had a chance to thoroughly recap it here.

If you have a detailed timeline of events, Twitch clips, or anything else which could be useful for my future video, please email me or add me on Discord after the event ends.

How you can help us!

  • Read the status and the timeline to get caught up.

  • Remember to refresh r/Place sometimes, maybe even before each pixel to be sure.

  • Use your available pixels to fix any obvious vandalism [just be careful that you place the correct pixel color.] We expect the pixel cooldown to be five minutes, so each click matters!

  • Join the real time discussion on Manechat for specific guides, art references, and to stay up-to-date on any potential plans. Neighbors are welcome to join too! Join the Discord server and self-role @r/Place 2022 as described in a recent announcement post. Also, read the rules and pins!

  • Conduct diplomacy with our neighbors and make as many friends as possible. Help them if we’re able to, and hopefully they’ll be willing to help us.

  • Stay tuned to r/MyLittlePony. This is a Reddit event after all.

  • The template download above is very likely to change over time. Stay tuned to official channels including this website for updates.
