R/place (stylized in all lowercase) is a community build that was held during the January 2020 GSM on January 12, 2020, organized by MinecraftYoshi26. Starting when the GSM began, members were allowed to build on a flat, blank canvas at one y-level. It is based on the event of the same name that occurred on Reddit in April 2017.
The event was held on the Map World in the southeast corner, accessible by a warp from Central Park. The event took nine squares on the Map World, making the canvas 384 blocks by 384 blocks. It was open for building for 9 hours and 55 minutes, from 11 a.m. PST until the daily restart at 8:55 p.m. PST. During the event, various renders were periodically made to keep updating the image on Dynmap. WorldEdit was not allowed to be used on the canvas.
On December 25, 2020, Frumple organized r/place2, a community event with the same premise that lasted 10 days and had a larger 25-square canvas.
r/place was nominated for a Glowlight Award under the "Outstanding Community Project" category and was featured during the segment "History Through r/place".
