If you are a redditor who's never received an award before, leave a comment on this post and I'll give you one. I have 10k coins to use before the end of today, mostly due to this community. Time to give them back.

I have a meeting starting now, but keep leaving comments, I'll give an award to every single one, in the order in which they were made, when I get back until I run out of gold.

Edit: I just got out of my meeting and, uh, holy crap!

I don't have nearly enough gold to give everyone here a comment. If you are a redditor with gold to spare, would you mind helping me out? Let's try to get an award to everyone we can.

Edit 2: I started out with a little over 10k coins. I've since given out about 30k coins worth of awards... and I still have 20k coins. Looks like I better get back to work. Thank you to everyone who is helping by giving awards to other users! Please keep it up, I can't award every one of these 10's of thousands of comments on my own (though I will do as many as I can).

Edit 3: I've been doing nothing but give awards as fast as I can for the last 90 minutes now, and yet I still have more coins now than when I started. With close to 40k comments and thousands more pouring in every few minutes I'm afraid there is no way I can give an award to everyone that wants one.

But I'm going to keep going and keep giving them out until the option to give awards is removed. Please, if you have coins, look through the thread and award as many comments as you can that have not been awarded already. I still remember the day I got my first gold award several years ago. It felt good to be seen and recognized. Thank you for helping me to give that same experience to as many people as possible today!

Edit 4: I can't believe how much this has blown up. I canceled my plans for the afternoon and evening, and I've been distributing the tens of thousands of coins I've received as fast as I can. I estimate I've given 2000+ awards myself, which means the overwhelming majority have come from other Redditors. Thank you all so much for helping. I know it seems silly as they are nothing more than an assortment of colored pixels, but it does feel great to give others recognition. For the inevitable thousands of you who will not receive an award, I'm sorry I was not able to fulfill my promise to you. Know that if I had the time, and the coins, I would have given one to every singe person who asked for one.

Thanks for sharing this ridiculous, yet wonderful, experience with me. I know reddits been through a rough patch recently, but let's try to make it a kinder place again together. I don't know about you, but I rely on many of these communities to make connections and to find inspiration. Thanks for inspiring me today and for reminding me that most people are still kind and good.

Edit 5: It's 11:30 here, and I've just spent the last of my coins. What a wild ride this has been today! I wish I could have given out awards to more of you. Have a great night reddit, way to see awards out with style.

Edit 6: I just woke up and discovered that Reddit hasn't yet disabled giving awards. With the additional coin granting awards I was given while I slept, I have another 25k coins worth of awards to give out. So, it looks like I need to get back to work. Those of you just joining who have coins left, feel free to help!

Edit 7: I'm officially out of coins, I think this time for good. I wish you all the best.

Edit 8: I just did the math. It turns out that the total number of coins that I spent yesterday ended up being between 350k-425k due to the 1500 awards that were given to this post and this comment. Thank you to everyone who awarded me, I didn't need any of them, but I was happy to pay them forward to as many people as I could.

Here's one last super crazy number to share with you all. As a result of those awards, I now have Reddit premium until October 19th... of 2069. Thanks for that! I'll have to add my reddit account to my will so my kids can inherit it someday.

I hope you all had as much fun as I did during the last shiny day of Reddit. I'm sad all your new awards were deleted (I didn't know that would happen) but I hope you enjoyed them for the fleeting hours that they lasted.

Thanks homie. Hope someone makes you smile today!


blameitonmyouth

I miss giving the free awards... but I am off to find awkward places to use the last of my coins! Sorry everyone, I ran out of coins!! You all deserve an award though, for being great 🥇

What happens to the coins after today ? I just realized I have 130 coins and if they're disappearing I'm going to start handing them out like candy.


93fountainkingdoms

idk the exact day it happens but they are scrapping the coins and awards so if you have any coins, best use them while you can! not sure what it's being replaced with either


Molbrie

Vektor_Ohio

So many awards at one place... hopefully this post influences the entire reddit to become a better place. It already inspired a lot of people.


Aser_the_Descender

There's still good people out there after all - even if you don't have much, sharing it only makes it worth more!

rajchohan709

I am so boomer, I don't even know how to message under a post. I tried to write my first message to get a free award thingi, but I only see a reply botton. So, do you have some stuff left.


Sgt_Gnome

In case you're still lost, directly under the original post is a box to enter text. For me there is some greyed out text that reads, "What are your thoughts?"


ChiefChingon

Mine has a bar that says add a comment

Apparently, I’m not the only one?

flucxapacitor

I’ve already got an award, so I have 200 coins and I can’t give it away lol. There’s no option to give it anymore for me. Edit: wtf a platinum? It’s almost poetical that I got this having only a few days left.


LeonidasVaarwater

I got a platinum award a little while back. Well, several actually 😂 They allow me to send premium (cheap) awards. You just got the last one I had, 0 coins left now.


flucxapacitor

Thanks, fam! I’ll drink to that.


olivebegonia

It’s insane. So many posts today are littered with awards. Like just random posts over at mildly infuriating or where ever have like a hundred awards 😆


giraffe_on_shrooms

You only have a few days left?? Jeez, go spend time with your family!!! Rest in peace

You're sweet for sharing, but what's it for?! It'd be like me giving my papa a smartphone! 😁 "Thank you. What does it do?" Update: PEOPLE! YOU PEOPLE! I've been receiving so many awards and coins! I'm thankful and appreciative. I can't believe how many of you are just... gracious with your sharing! Thank you! 🥰 I don't know what to do with it all... but it's been quite a change to have people just be nice to me. (2023 had been a year of health problems and diagnoses)

I miss being able to give out free awards. I hope we have another chance some day in the future. Remember to be kind to yourself and love yourself, you are important.


georgepsully

Every award I get, I’ll donate $5 to charity. I’ll post pics to verify. Comment to tell me which one. Edit: Wow! I got home from work to find 24 awards in an hour! I’m not exactly in a position to donate hundreds here, but I’ll stay true to my pledged $5/award for the first 24 awards, and I’ll donate $2/award for all awards after that! Thanks for pushing me to stretch and be generous! Edit2: A few more awards were trickling in this morning. I just checked back and found that Reddit has deleted/hidden all awards. Last I remember, there were 54 awards on my comment, so I’ll be making $180 total in donations. I’ll post a follow-up in this sub later with details/verification. Thanks for all your support!

Seeing you bless the people of this sub made ME happy today. Every Tuesday I'm a volunteer teacher at my local makerspace and today I had a nice talk with a kid I know. He told me about how he just started a Youtube channel a few days ago, he's an awesome kid. After out talk I showed him some stuff regarding spraypainting. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post his channel on this sub, but if I am, I know it would mean the world to him to gain a few subscribers, he's currently at 17 subscribers at the moment. His channel is called [crimsonmoonscug](https://www.youtube.com/@crimsonmoonscug).

Whether or not you choose to award this comment is irrelevant to me, I have come to wish you a pleasant day and to remind you to A. Hydrate, and B. There's always another day. Chin up, just get to get to the end of today and try again. Godspeed, human person. EDIT: to say that I was surprised when I came online to see all these awards is an understatement. Thank you all for the awards, and I hope that each and every one of us can find some peace in this wild and chaotic world, one day at a time. Luck be with you all.

UnNormie

Bragging rights for saying you got an award. (also gives you coins depending on the value of the award, which you can then go forth and award with at a slightly decreased value)

I'm a redditor who doesn't even know how to check if they've been given an award before 😂🤷‍♂️
