    Found this on The Verge and it's addicting as hell. I scrolled down to about 2/3rds hoping I could have my own plot of checkboxes to check and keep them checked but apparently people are spread out evenly (unless the server randomizes the checkboxes for everyone so box #1 for me could be box #34432 for someone else).

    Either way, it's an outright war out there, fluctuating between 550k-570k checked boxes but never straying too far. I'm in the checker camp, you might be in the unchecker camp and that's fine but we'll be fighting.

    Happy (un)checking!

    EDIT: This patch of land around 800k is mine, don't touch it, thank you: https://ibb.co/cFD1bdv

    Here's a blog post on how it was made (though at the time of posting it's inaccurate due to infrastructure changes to handle the intense load the site got).

    Fun! Reminds me of neal.fun’s password game (in that both are borderline impossible to “win”).

    Idk what the colored checkboxed mean, but I clicked them. So don't any of you touch them!

    I experimented with a checkerboard pattern and it seems less provocative to the deselectors.

    This is like playing with bubble wrap but without sound and the bubbles can be unpopped.
