A little bit of context: 7 years ago Reddit introduced an April Fools event people could play by interacting with each other from within Reddit itself. The first event was called [The Button](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Button_(Reddit)), but the most successful one was 2017's [/r/place](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Place_(Reddit)). During the 3 days the even lasted, users could change the color of any pixel in a 1.000x1.000 canvas (with a 5 seconds cooldown). Communities from all over reddit (and beyond) organized to collaborate and draw something meaningful on the canvas, be it their community mascot, some meta joke, or anything else really. I personally participated in the game, and it was one of the funniest community-based events I've been able to experience online.
Apparently, after 5 years, [they decided to bring /r/place back](https://redd.it/tqbf9w). I'm posting this because I was thinking that, as the Lemmy community, we could organize to draw a lemmur on the canvas :)
I wonder if other communities in the Fediverse are going to organize and put some effort into it btw, if anyone knows anything about it it would be cool to gather a list of communities who are going to participate to represent the Fediverse in the game

This wobbly opening comes more than one year after India and South Africa's [request](https://docs.wto.org/dol2fe/Pages/SS/directdoc.aspx?filename=q:/IP/C/W669.pdf&Open=True) to temporarily lift TRIPS agreements on pandemic-related medical technologies
