History[edit | edit source]

Creation[edit | edit source]

On the 26th of January 2021 u/I_Follow_Shark_Ladys created r/Shark_Park. He created it after it got suggested to him by one of his Reddit followers. The purpose of the subreddit was not defined then, it was originally just made to house followers of his account and let them post whatever they wanted. The original subreddit icon was a picture of influential V-Tuber Gawr Gura. On the first few days the posts on the subreddit were mostly random and also had users posting porn and Chinese Communist propaganda. This changed after rules were enforced and an information post had been made on the subreddit.[2]

Early Life[edit | edit source]

In February 2021 the subreddit hit 1000 members. At that time the subreddit was getting new moderators. Which were u/fatyoshi48, u/niehto and u/Head-butt-man. On the 2nd of February a vote on a moderator was held, which u/cobalt12390 won.[3] These moderators were later all removed.

u/niehto created the first Shark_Park Discord Server in March,[4] which was later approved as the official Discord by u/I_Follow_Shark_Ladys. The server was then replaced by another in April.[5] The second Discord server was then called Swag_Society.

On March 24th r/Shark_Park was temporarly closed for 24 hours due to participating in a site wide protest against a pedophilic Reddit admin.[6]

The subreddit had also introduced user-flairs, which were shark themed.[7]

On April 1st the subreddit was turned into r/Doggo_Park, changing the theme to dogs and replacing the icon with popular V-Tuber Inugami Korone.[8]

June 7th r/Shark_Park was mentioned by the YouTube channel EmKay and refered to as "Shark_Pak".[9]

August-December 2021[edit | edit source]

By August all old subreddit moderators except the owner were removed. Swag_Society was also replaced by the now Shark Park Discord.[10]

The icon was changed to an edited image of a shark smoking weed.

Middle of September the subreddit had gained 3 new moderators: u/Wal-Weegee, KolopiGamingAndStuff and u/randomguyfromafrica. u/I_Follow_Shark_Ladys founded the USSN (United Shitposting Subreddit Network) with other shitposting subreddit owners.[11] This led to Shark Park being advertised on other subreddits and the sub displaying other communities on their sidebar.

These subreddits were:

  • r/19648
  • r/ShowerDinoTaco
  • r/P1ZZ4_M0ZZARELL4
  • r/UnfunnyHellhole
  • r/iforgorthesubname
  • r/TheHomeOfSexuals

Later on also u/ResidentLychee was added to the moderation team.

Following in December the community had grown to 6000 members.

2022[edit | edit source]

On January 26th was the 1 year anniversary. The growth of the subreddit was increasing thanks to more engagement within the community, meaning that more and more people would join. In March the member count increased to 7000 and continued to grow faster ever since.

On April 1st the subreddit partook in the r/Place 2 event that was taking place, building a small pixelated shark next to the builds of r/196, r/Belgium and r/bangtan.[12]

The USSN was desolving, so some of the linked subreddits changed and new ones were added. These are the ones that got added:

  • r/IkeaFreshBalls
  • r/69Moelester420
  • r/Pongerton

The member count grew to 10000 on June 17th. This enabled the predictions feature and the Tournament of Awesomeness was started. The subreddit icon was also changed to a picture of Matpat from Game Theory with a green text overlay saying "I'm insane".

On July 7th Shark_Park was closed until July 16th. This was due to I_Follow_Shark_Ladys having wanted to shut down the subreddit.[13] When the sub was privated all moderators were removed again and nobody but I_Follow_Shark_Ladys could post until the 22nd. The subreddit icon was changed to a picture of Hideo Kojima after going public again.

September 2nd the member count went up to 15000. Due to this the subreddit introduced post-flairs, a revamp of the older user-flairs, a new predictions tournament, and the new current moderators.[14]
