In the pixiv Requests feature, it is now possible to check whether or not creators will be posting AI-generated work under their


Greetings from pixiv.

From December 22nd, 2022, in the Requests feature on the desktop and mobile versions of pixiv, it is possible to check whether or not creators post AI-generated work under their Request terms.
As stated in the announcement released on December 8th, all creators were asked to update their settings in advance of the rollout of this feature.

Pre-rollout request to update your Request terms stating whether you will post AI-generated work

■ Request terms that haven't yet been set to specify the presence/absence of AI-generated work will be set automatically

As stated in the December 8th announcement, all Request terms that haven't been updated to specify AI-generated work are updated automatically as of Thursday, December 22nd, 2:00 pm JST.
The automatic settings are determined based on the creator's pixiv data, and on how many AI-generated works they have posted via the Requests feature.

Creators whose settings were automatically changed have been contacted by the pixiv Requests official account via pixiv Messages.

This setting affects the AI-generated work settings on all works posted via the Requests feature from December 22nd onward. This setting does not affect any requests that were sent out prior to December 22nd.

If the automatic setting on your Request terms is in error, we apologize for the inconvenience, but we ask that you change your settings accordingly.

The settings procedure is detailed below.


■ For users who specify in their terms that they post AI-generated work in response to requests
Please select "Post only AI-generated work".


Requests received under these terms will automatically be labeled as AI-generated when you post the finished work. You won't be able to change the settings yourself from the posting page.



■ For users who do not post AI-generated work in response to requests
Please select "Don't post AI-generated work".

Requests received under these terms will not be automatically labeled as "AI-generated" when you post the work. You won't be able to change the settings yourself from the posting page.

For details on how to change settings, please check this article.

■ For fans: It is now possible to check before you make a request whether or not AI-generated work will be posted

The message "AI-generated work will be posted under these request terms" will be displayed on the Request details page if the creator has specified "AI-generated work only" in their Request terms.
All work posted in response to these Request terms will be AI-generated.




If the "AI-generated" is not displayed, it means that under the creator's terms, the creator does not accept requests for, or post, AI-generated work.

■ Reason for the service update

When fans request work from creators, there is a strong possibility for misunderstandings to occur, especially when creators use AI technology.
This feature was updated in order to prevent such misunderstandings, and maintain a comfortable experience for everyone using pixiv's service.

The service updates covered in this announcement are not necessarily permanent and may be reviewed and modified as necessary, based on user feedback.

Thank you for your patronage with pixiv.
