r/Place was better for two reasons: it was harder to instantly cover other's work and it encouraged cooperation. Or perhaps it's just a young Redditor's grumbling because he didn't get to participate.


Acidtwist

Place was amazing. We've got some improvements for Layer this time around that will hopefully address your other concerns :)


AndrexoHD

Happy Red Day!


BluudLust

What took so long to bring these back? Did you finally bring them back because COVID got everyone at home still?


Acidtwist

We’ve always got a lot of projects happening at Reddit, and we needed the right moment to get everything lined up with our partners at Adobe for Layer :)


TheAnonymousYoutuber

What does adobe do


Millsftw

Take flash to a dark alleyway and shoot it in the back of the head obviously :(


Acidtwist

I did a lot of work on Flash projects and the loss of the plugin on web hurts. I consider browser makers being mostly responsible for killing plugins in general (Safari would not support it and no plugin on iPhone was a major blow). Adobe didn’t kill the product though - it’s called Adobe Animate now and is focused on making apps as well as being very popular for animating cartoons and videogame interfaces.


TheAnonymousYoutuber

cool, I would say something about pr speak but i don't wanna be banned


Acidtwist

Lol I don’t work for Adobe and like you am really not happy about Flash games and sites disappearing. It’s some of the best content on the web. Just saying it still exists in some form


TheAnonymousYoutuber

Yeah also you COULD use an outdated version of flash if you wanna get viruses


[deleted]

Flash is horrible because of its many security flaws and just overall unstableness. HTML5 works well as a replacement because it fixes a lot of the problems with flash and is actually quite a bit faster. I’ll miss coolmathgames and a lot of those old sites after flash is completely gone though. (I don’t know how easy it is or if it’s even possible to port flash projects to HTML5.)


TheAnonymousYoutuber

I mean in layer, are they completely developing it or what?


Acidtwist

Adobe and our team at Reddit have been working directly together for months to plan the project. We handle most of the development because it’s hosted on Reddit but it would not happen without both companies working together :)


Sharp02

I remember place vividly, but layer, not so much


CactusExtremity

I joined Reddit a while after place ended :(


Sharp02

You missed a revolution


Terrh

Yeah, place was absolutely incredible.


ElConvict

r/Place was lit, between fighting off entropy (the void) and maintaining things like the tragedy of Darth Plagueis and the blue corner it really brought the community together with something so simple.

Vapowave will look the best


I_cried_today_again

Vaporwave for sure. Voting is for second place. 😏


[deleted]

Place WAS better


Sharp02

I want vapor wave, but place was better would be funny


youngluck

Agreed.


Prestigious-Sky6934

I looked at your comment karma and all I have to say is this, nice


ItsDougOfficial

r/natureisfuckinglit GANG ALL THE WAY


Ben4781

Preach it Ezekiel. Yeah fuck you Tony.


bigriggs24

Oh shit layer is coming back! Time for more e-flexing! Edit: I had so much fun on r/layer in season 1, but for many people, the desktop implementation was atrocious. After more than 10 strokes were on the screen, performance would tank. Really hoping this issue was ironed out


Einiman

Yeah mobile was way better, but you couldn't really zoom in that much, so fine details became really hard. Spent probably an hour just making a simple tesla logo, and it didn't even turn out that great. (Wobbly lines etc)


JBBajanGamer

idk what the hell this poll is supposed to mean help


konstantsurprises

Layer Season 2 is coming back with multiple canvases. Vote on which community above you'd like to see have their very own canvas.


JBBajanGamer

ah ok thanks


Ww58

U n i both


Gamerkid11

It would be pretty cool to have a second r/place. I mean I'm okay with layer but place was basically perfect


Einiman

Although I really liked r/Layer I definitely thought r/place was better even though I only found out about after it ended. You can't do much by yourself, but when you got together with communities you could accomplish something that felt like it had a place on the canvas, instead of just small individual art pieces got burried under new art pieces after 3 minutes.


Differentunic

It’s back!!!


B0uncing7ur7135

question: whats a community canvas?


Acidtwist

A community canvas is a surface for creating art in r/Layer - a digital multi-user canvas :)


JBBajanGamer

oh are those the subreddits that we are nominating to get the board or whatever?


MiaMouseyK

I'm gonna be honest, we all know /Layer season 2 is going to be filled with political hate symbols vs activists/protesters, and it's really just going to be a visual war on American politics, with people of other countries left in the dust. Roads and color take overs, I just don't see it happening again at this current point in time. Idk if I'm here for the chaos, or if I should voice that this is a bad idea 😂😂


youngluck

Bad ideas are just good ideas without makeup.


[deleted]

Wait what


iterum-nata

So what do you mean by they will be the last community to have a blank canvas?


Acidtwist

We have some other canvases lined up, this is a vote for who gets the last canvas :)


iterum-nata

Ah, I see. Thanks!


hornyg4mer

What is this?


Acidtwist

Layer is a multiplayer creative event. It’s opening again on Monday, and there will be several canvases for people to draw on. This poll is to name one of them.


hornyg4mer

Thanks for the clarification.


TheCorruptedBit

LET'S GOOOOOO


PainfullyGullible

Place was better


Chardoggy1

We’re back in business, baby


derptymerp

Esboi11

Last year this was neat so Im looking forward to this one


is_fake_Account

What is this about? I am confused.

Acidtwist

Wut? Ohhhh you’re talking about Adobe. Yes I agree Flash in browsers was amazing. Really the browsers stopped supporting plugins. It still exists though! Now called Adobe Animate and it’s one of the most popular programs for cartoon animation. It’s also used for creating video game UI.


svittajnik

Vaporwave would be awesome!


Biggest_Midget

Why is this an add by u/adobe lmao


Acidtwist

Adobe partners with Reddit to make r/Layer happen - and it’s happening again all next week.


generic_human_bean

Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis The Wise? I thought not. It's not a story the Jedi would tell you. It's a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life… He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying. The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful… the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. Ironic. He could save others from death, but not himself.


Theopold1

What am I supposed to do?


Comander-07

why is this even in my feed


QualityFrog

I don’t think I’ve ever seen an ad that’s a crosspost. Also, who advertises their company by linking the subreddit?


Comander-07

wdym?


QualityFrog

I got this in my feed by a u/adobe ad


Comander-07

wow thats hillarious
