You possibly can overlook about reveling in dramatic bar chart races on Reddit‘s DataIsBeautiful community in the interim.
The subreddit’s moderator workforce has introduced it’s briefly banning all race charts till the hype has cooled off. “The subreddit is at the moment experiencing a big surge in racing bar charts,” moderator AskLubich stated. “To make issues extra clear, we are actually asserting a moratorium on racing bar charts.”
“Sadly, some customers took this so far as borderlining [sic] spam,” the moderator added. “Others took it past.”
The announcement stresses that is solely a brief measure, which shall be revoked as soon as the development slows down. The moderators additional famous they’d been wiping a median of 20 posts per day over the previous week or so.
“We carried out a moratorium on racing bar charts, because of persistent spam-issues and since they’ve turn into too prolific on this subreddit,” reads a moderator comment left on one of many bar chart race threads posted after the announcement.
Naturally, Redditors have wondered if asserting the moratorium on race charts with a race chart charting the race charts posted and faraway from the subreddit may be a great way to visualise the transfer. In keeping with AskLubich, although, “the information will not be simple to get.”
Too dangerous. I’d have clicked on that, to be trustworthy.

Our contribution to bar chart races
We’ve additionally tried stimulating the bar chart race financial system up to now.

In any case, you may test it out right here — it’s bought a really dramatic sound monitor too.
We’ve reached out to DataIsBeautiful’s AskLubich for touch upon once we can count on to see the moratorium lifted, and can replace this piece accordingly if we hear again.
