Ceasing account-linking service with Tumeng

Greetings from pixiv.

On September 12th, 2022, pixiv will cease linkage with Tumeng.

Tumeng is an illustration posting service managed by Beijing Lanwan Boyue Technology Co., Ltd. (北京蓝湾博阅科技有限公司, CEO: Lu Haizhou, Location: Beijing). Beijing Lanwan Boyue Technology Co., Ltd. also manages popular novel service in China, known as Bikan, with over 10 million users each month.

We felt that Tumeng closely aligned with our ideal to “create a space where creation could be enjoyed more”. We entered into a partnership with Tumeng on September 17th, 2020, to allow works uploaded to pixiv to be shared on Tumeng.

Due to changes in the market and within the company managing Tumeng, the service will come to an end, therefore, although it is unfortunate, it must follow that our cooperation with Tumeng will also end.

The goal of our partnership with Tumeng was to allow the works of all of our creators to spread further.
We would like to apologize to those in our community who had been making use of this partnership and express our deepest gratitude, even when the involvement to the work they posted did not meet their expectations.
