After 11 years as a subreddit, r/memes has finally broken [**10 MILLION SUBSCRIBERS**](https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/670008698868858892/708852425838035024/ezgif-3-1b09721e24f5.png)
To help you comprehend (or maybe confuse you) just how stupidly massive this is, consider this:
* We are the 48th largest reddit community!
* If we were to form a country, we’d be the **88th largest country**, between Jordan and Portugal
* 10,000,000 seconds is nearly **4 months**, while 10,000,000 minutes is 228 months, or **19 years!**
* If every user joined together and held hands in a line at the equator, we’d get 25% the way around the world!
To celebrate, we’re asking our users (that’s you!!) to help us design a cool new subreddit icon! It can be 10m themed, include or exclude sadcat, or be something new! The only stipulation we ask is that it does not reference current events (for example, if we hit 10m last year, it would still make sense to have), is square, and at least over 300×300 pixels.
Depending on the number of submissions, we will try to award every original suggestion! Top 5 picks will get our “Moderator Approved Award” (1 month reddit premium, or platinum). Top three will receive an additional two, top two another, and first place an additional. So the break down of awards is 1st: 4 months, 2nd: 3 months, 3rd: 2 months, 4th/5th: 1 month, 6th onward tbd…
To enter in the competition, simply post your icon suggestion to your reddit profile, imgur, or another hosting site and link it in the stickied comment below! Use the rest of the thread to share your fun 10 million fact or just hang out!
Once again, on behalf of the mod team of r/memes, thank you for being an awesome community! Here’s to the next 10 million!! Cheers!
Edit: for those non artistic out there, we’ll award our top three favorite 10 million facts in the comments too 🙂 Enjoy!
