pixiv - New Feature urn:uuid:c12223a0-059a-11e4-9abe-0002a5d5c51b 2022-04-27T11:00:00+09:00 The length of novels is now being calculated in a way that is appropriate for their language pixiv https://www.pixiv.net/info.php?id=8039 2022-04-27T11:00:00+09:00 Greetings from pixiv. As of April 27th, 2022, the display of text length for novels on pixiv's mobile and desktop versions will change. Depending on the work's language, a work's length will be calculated either on character, or word count. <a href="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20220426/479412282.png"><img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20220426/479412282.png" id="og_image"></a> Previously, the length of novels was indicated in terms of the number of characters it contained, even for languages such as English, where counting the number of words is more common. Displaying the work's length in a way that's appropriate for the target language will allow readers to more intuitively confirm its contents. Additionally, approximate reading times will be now available to international readers too, calculated based on the work's language. In accordance with this change, a word count tab has been added to the desktop version's dashboard. If you don't need the word count displayed, it can be turned off via the dashboard options. <a href="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20220426/690484191.png"><img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20220426/690484191.png" width="80%"></a> <strong>■Languages indicated by word count</strong> Arabic, Croatian, Danish, Dutch, English, Filipino, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Turkish, Vietnamese <strong>■Languages to remain displayed by character count</strong>. Japanese, Korean, Simplified Chinese, Thai, Traditional Chinese, etc. Thank you for your patronage with pixiv.

The Requests feature is now one year old! And now you can set multiple sets of Terms pixiv https://www.pixiv.net/info.php?id=7396 2021-09-30T17:00:00+09:00 Greetings from pixiv. Requesting works is a way for fans to help support their favorite creators on pixiv. The Requests feature celebrated its first birthday on September 30th, 2021. The latest update to Requests, which lets creators set multiple Request Terms, also goes into effect on this day. Up until this point, creators could only have one set of Terms, but now they can have up to four. This means that extra request conditions and themes can be set, and therefore it offers more opportunities for creators and fans to enjoy different types of interactions. <img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20210930/714258488.png" width="500px"> ■ Make creating even more enjoyable ~ setting multiple Terms is now possible ~ Up until this point, only one set of Request Terms could be set. This resulted in creators focusing on generic Terms and desired target prices. By increasing the number of Terms that can be set, creators can have not only generic Terms, but also ones that spark their creativity. Creators could set deliberately tight turnarounds, use fun themes like "emoji", and exchange requests with their colleagues in the community. Of course, everyone is free to continue using requests as you have been, but why not try switching things up for a little extra fun? If you're interested in setting your Terms to make requests even more enjoyable and need some ideas, take a look at the sample plans in the FAQ. They include some tips. <a href="https://pixiv-request.fanbox.cc/posts/2801093" target="_blank">How to enjoy Requests</a> * For more information on setting multiple sets of Terms, please refer to the FAQ. * This update is only available on the mobile and desktop versions of pixiv. * Users outside of Japan are welcome. We can accommodate users in five languages. We at the Requests Team will continue to make various updates to our service through the feedback we receive from creators and fans.<a href="https://pixiv-request.fanbox.cc/posts/2801091" target="_blank"> (Take a look here for a year-long look at the Requests feature) </a> Over this past year, over 25,000 works have been produced via Requests. Furthermore, there are over 50,000 creators accepting requests, and over 10,000 fans who have sent requests (approx. 25% are users from outside of Japan). We're overjoyed to see so many in the community enjoying the Requests feature. pixiv will continue to develop new services and features to keep the Requests feature a pleasant experience for our users.

This is an announcement for everyone who has used the Requests feature. On May 13th, 2021 (Thur), the Fan Letters feature will be added to pixiv Requests. Fan Letters is a feature that lets you send a message containing your feelings to the creator once a request is completed. Up until now, fans could only convey their feelings by sending comments and bookmarking a requested work. Now, fans can put their feelings into fan letters once a work is completed. Only the creator will be able to read the content of fan letters, so you can be at ease when conveying your feelings honestly. Your letter will not be visible to the public. Fan letters can be sent within one week of a request's completion. To commemorate the feature's release, you'll be able to send a fan letter to the creator of every completed request you've sent up until now. Take advantage of this fan letter bonanza to tell creators how you feel about their work! You can send fan letters from the details page of each request.

Thank you for using our service. This is an announcement for everyone who uses the Requests feature. On April 13th, 2021, we released a page where you can view works that you've requested. <img width="90%" src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20210409/346573900.png"> Previously, you had to go to the <a href="https://www.pixiv.net/manage/requests">"Manage requests"</a> page and open the details for each request when you wanted to view a requested work. Now, we've added a "Requested works" tab to your profile page, which gathers the thumbnails of completed requests and the work details page. Additionally, requests you sent anonymously, requested works that are private, and URL-restricted works will not be displayed to other users. Requests is continuously developing new services and features to support the passions of creators and their fans. Thank you again for using pixiv Requests. Terms details are now required when you start accepting requests pixiv https://www.pixiv.net/info.php?id=6797 2021-04-12T16:00:00+09:00 Greetings from pixiv. Thank you for using our service. This is an announcement for everyone who uses the Requests feature. On April 12th, 2021, your Terms "Message" in the Requests feature is going to be changed to "Terms details". Additionally, those who start accepting requests for the first time will be required to enter the details of their Terms. *If you're already using Requests, you'll be able to continue using our service without the need to enter the details of your Terms. However, the next time you edit your Terms, you'll have to enter the details. <img width="90%" src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20210409/331341158.png"> Due to the name change, we have also prepared examples of how to write your Terms details. If you click "What should I write?" on the Request Terms creation page, you'll be able to view the examples and even copy the text as-is. <img width="90%" src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20210409/734250511.png"> Terms that receive requests from fans often have "themes I like" and "things I want to create" written in their details to give fans ideas about what the creator wants to receive. Creators with Terms details set receive as many as 9 times the number of requests as those who do not. Therefore, we'd be appreciative if creators open to requests might take advantage of this chance to change or add details to their Terms. Thank you for your patronage with pixiv.

Thank you for using our service. On March 30th, 2021, we'll be implementing some updates changing how profile page images are displayed when shared on other platforms, such as social media. See an example of the new layout below. We're updating the sharing system in order to make creators' information more appealing to everyone. Once implemented, when a profile page is shared on other platforms, the creator's profile image will be displayed more prominently and the text will include their request terms. Please don't hesitate to use this to share your own profile, or that of other creators! Please note that this update covers the sharing of a profile page's cover image. Those who do not have a cover image set will be displayed as usual. We acknowledge that it may be a hassle, but if you're interested in your cover image being shared, we ask that you please make the necessary preparations beforehand. More details on the upcoming changes are listed below. The new display pattern of these changes will change depending on whether your profile is shared using the Request feature or not. <b>■ When sharing the profile of creators not accepting requests, or tabs other than the Request tab</b> When sharing a profile page from a tab other than the Requests tab, nickname and self-introduction will be displayed. * Up until now, only the user icon was visible, but now the cover images will also be displayed. <img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20210322/291645964.png" width="80%"> * Depending on the platform or device you're using, there are times when only the nickname will be displayed. <b>■ When sharing your request terms via the "Manage requests" page, or otherwise by selecting your Requests tab from your profile page</b> If you've already created your request terms, the target price you've set in the text portion of your terms as well as your self-introduction will be displayed. * Please don't hesitate to share your profile page via your Requests tab or via Manage requests. <img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20210322/402330900.png" width="80%"> * Depending on the platform or device you're using, there are times when only your nickname and request terms will be displayed. If you do not have a cover image set, your profile will display as described up until now. You'll need to make the necessary changes to your cover image for when your page is shared, either by yourself or by others. If you want to learn more about your cover image, please refer to the FAQ article titled: <a href="https://www.pixiv.help/hc/ja/articles/235644567">"I want to edit the appearance of my profile screen (cover image, Featured, etc.)"</a> Thank you for your patronage with pixiv.

This is an announcement regarding our Requests feature.
