Account suspension and recovery following the violation of pixiv's Terms of Use and Guidelines

Greetings from pixiv.

We have received a number of inquiries regarding the accounts that have been suspended following the violation of our Terms of Use and Guidelines and their recovery.

To ensure the continued operation of our platform, we check that all works comply with pixiv's Terms of Use and Guidelines, and have been sending warnings and account suspension notices to violators.
Due to a change in the detection method of non-compliant works in the spring of 2022, the number of violations detected and warnings issued has been on the rise.

As a result, users who have posted many works in the past are more likely to have their accounts suspended, depending on the nature of such works.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to the affected users.

We have temporarily suspended the accounts that fall under the above cases.
We would appreciate it if you could check your past posts to ensure that they comply with pixiv's Terms of Service and Guidelines.

■ pixiv Guidelines

Careful deliberation will be held on the account suspension process to prevent similar occurrences in the future.

We have also received inquiries about the revision criteria for non-compliant works; rest assured that there has been no recent change.
Once again, please note that we are continuing to take action against works that violate our Terms of Use and Guidelines and you may receive a warning regardless of when the work was posted.

■ About account recovery
To recover your account, please contact us via pixiv's Inquiry Form after you have revised and re-uploaded the work(s) you had been warned about in the account suspension message, or set the appropriate age restrictions. Upon checking that the issue has been resolved, we will restore your account.
We will contact the affected users individually via pixiv message as soon as possible.

Thank you for your patronage with pixiv.
