> Canvas 13

Canvas 13b was a limited-time 100x100 pixel canvas with a very short 5/8 second cooldown timer that was made available while the server was migrated to a different computer.

This canvas saw several changes in gameplay:

The latter was a side-effect of the temporary canvas; setting up user registrations would have been cumbersome for a canvas that was expected to last only as long as it would take to migrate the server. As a result, each 'account' was merely an IP address, which was thus shielded from other players by forcing the username to '-snip-'.

Due to the canvas's small size, low timers, and essentially anonymous pixel placement, many fights erupted on this canvas. It is the first canvas on where the Green Lattice ended up having no presence by the end.
The final canvas state is one that is heavy on flags, backgrounds, and low on art - mostly art that was defended from early in the canvas's time.
