pixiv - New Feature urn:uuid:c12223a0-059a-11e4-9abe-0002a5d5c51b 2021-04-27T18:30:00+09:00 You can now use the Term Conversion feature when reading novels on the pixiv app pixiv https://www.pixiv.net/info.php?id=6880 2021-04-27T18:30:00+09:00 Greetings from pixiv. Thank you for using our service. The Term Conversion feature was added to the pixiv app for novel reading on April 27th, 2021. When Term Conversion is enabled for words in a work's reference materials, you can change the words of a work to whatever you like. How to read works with modified terms: ・Open a series work with Term Conversion enabled, then tap "Convert terms" under the cover image <img style="border:3px solid #EEEEFF; width:50%" src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20210427/507610881.png"> ・Enter the words you'd like the terms to be changed to, and then tap "Apply and start reading". (If you leave a term blank, it won't be converted) <img style="border:3px solid #EEEEFF; width:50%" src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20210427/269851643.png"> ・The terms from the text will be converted. <img style="border:3px solid #EEEEFF; width:50%" src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20210427/689163345.png"> * If you'd like to enable Term Conversion for your own work, you'll need to set it on the mobile or desktop versions of pixiv. For details, please check the <a href="https://www.pixiv.help/hc/articles/900000378663" target="blank">FAQ</a>. * If the person who posted the work doesn't have Term Conversion enabled, this feature cannot be used. Thank you for your patronage with pixiv. 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. There is now a page where you can view the completed works you've requested. pixiv https://www.pixiv.net/info.php?id=6792 2021-04-13T16:00:00+09:00 Greetings from pixiv.

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.

Changes to image display when sharing profile pages pixiv https://www.pixiv.net/info.php?id=6727 2021-03-23T16:00:00+09:00 <img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20210323/230489137.png" width="80%" id="og_image"> Greetings from 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. On March 9th, 2021, creators who have set Request terms will have "Accepting requests" display next to their name on multiple pages within pixiv, starting with their profile page. Before this update, information on whether a creator was accepting requests or not could only be verified on their profile page. Making it visible on multiple pages will make it easier to know who is accepting requests. <b>■ Where the icon is displayed</b> ・Profile pages: next to their name <img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20210308/830420279.jpg" width="80%"> ・On work pages: under their name <img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20210308/810464343.jpg" width="80%"> ・On Recommended users: under their name <img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20210308/621871959.jpg" width="80%"> ・On their profile preview: under their name <img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20210308/706996612.png" width="80%"> ・Among the users you're following: under their name <img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20210308/981369428.png" width="80%"> * These changes will be reflected in the next update. pixiv Requests is continuously developing new services and features to support the passions of creators and their fans.

Co-request together with others! pixiv's new Requests feature was released! pixiv https://www.pixiv.net/info.php?id=6253 2020-09-30T13:00:00+09:00 <img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20200929/226246533.png" width="100%"> Greetings from pixiv. The new Requests feature was released on September 30th (Wed), 2020, on the mobile version and desktop version of pixiv, enabling creators to receive requests from their fans in return for a fee. To celebrate the release of the new feature, starting from release day you will be able to take advantage of the "Start co-requesting works now!" event and join in on requests sent to six popular creators by pixiv's official profile. Moreover, we are discounting the commission on requests from 10% to 3.99% and returning a part of the commission to the creator as part of our "Thank-you campaign! 3.99% commission promotion". <b>pixiv Requests feature website: </b><a href="https://www.pixiv.net/request/about" target="_blank">https://www.pixiv.net/request/about</a> <h4><b>About the Requests feature and co-requesting a work with others</b></h4> <img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20200929/257272301.png" width="100%"> By turning on the Requests feature, creators will be able to solicit creative requests from their fans on pixiv in return for a fee. Creators can set a "target price" for their requests in advance. Fans can request work they would like to see come to life by the hands of creators who have activated the Requests feature. Creators can choose the requests they would like to take on among all the requests received and start working on them. Requests are then completed by posting the finished work on the creator's profile page or by posting them as URL-restricted works that can only be accessed from those who sent the request. Requests that are taken on via the Requests feature can be fully completed on pixiv. Creators solicit paid requests, choose which requests they would like to take on, and publish their work to be delivered to their fans, all of which happens on pixiv. The Requests feature is compatible with all four types of works that can be posted on pixiv: illustrations, manga, novels, and Ugoira. <img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20200929/615867787.png" width="80%"> What's unique about this feature is the possibility to "co-request" a work, a way for fans to enjoy requests together. By offering the same amount of money as the original request, fans can join in on requests they like and co-request them. This way, once the request is completed, they will also be able to receive gift files from the creator. After completing a request, creators receive all the money coming from the request itself and co-requests (excluding the service usage fees). Thanks to the Co-request feature, not only can creators gather more support and sympathy for their own creations from their fans, but those who find it difficult to think of requests can have an easier time participating! pixiv's new Requests feature was developed with the intention of providing a place where creators and fans' passions can connect and everyone can enjoy creative activities. * Please refer to the <a href="https://www.pixiv.help/hc/categories/900000133123" target=”_blank”>Help page</a> for details on the feature. * The feature is available on the mobile and desktop versions of pixiv. * The feature is open to international users too. Just like pixiv, it's available in 5 languages. <h4><b>Release celebration! Start co-requesting works now!</b></h4> <img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20200929/236190395.png" width="100%"> To celebrate the release of the new feature, starting from September 30th (Wed), join the "Start co-requesting works now!" event and try co-requesting the requests sent to six popular creators by pixiv's official profile.

The new Requests feature will soon be released on the mobile version and desktop version of pixiv. By turning on the Requests feature, creators will be able to solicit creative requests from their fans on pixiv in return for a fee. Creators can set a "target price" for their requests in advance. Fans can request work they would like to see come to life by the hands of creators who have activated the Requests feature. Creators can choose the requests they would like to take on among all the requests received and start working on them. Requests are then completed by posting the finished work on the creator's profile page or by posting them as URL-restricted works that can only be accessed from those who sent the request. The Requests feature is compatible with all four types of works that can be posted on pixiv: illustrations, manga, novels, and Ugoira. The feature is also provided in five languages and is thus available to international users as well. Moreover, in addition to one-on-one requests, we are planning to provide an additional feature to allow fans to request works together. <b>pixiv's Requests feature special announcement page: </b><a href="https://www.pixiv.net/request/about" target="_blank">https://www.pixiv.net/request/about</a> Thank you for your future patronage with pixiv.

Thank you for your patronage with pixiv. <span style="font-size:120%;font-weight:bold;color:#505050;">Past announcements about external service linkage</span> ● <a href="https://www.pixiv.net/info.php?id=6139" target="_blank"> External service linkage to enable pixiv creators to publish their works outside Japan </a> (published on 9/03/2020) The new Dashboard for creators to be available soon pixiv https://www.pixiv.net/info.php?id=6044 2020-08-12T15:00:00+09:00 Greetings from pixiv. We would like to thank you for the many questions and for the feedback we have received about the Dashboard feature that was announced recently. As the new feature will be available to some users starting from August 12, 2020 (Wednesday), we would like to reiterate our thoughts on the development of the Dashboard and its features. <b>Introducing the Dashboard</b> The Dashboard is a feature thought for creators. Our goal is to deliver a "creative hub" that enhances the charm of each creator's works and provides new discoveries and enjoyment to be found at every visit. The old work management page did not provide creators with information other than the number of reactions to each work they posted, but from now on, you will be able to easily check a wide range of data which is difficult to grasp from the number of reactions alone, such as the number of views and comments. We want to make the hard work behind creative activities as valuable as possible. This is why we would like to support the work of creators by providing valuable information from the work management page. ■ Real-time display of the response to your work In addition to bookmarks, you can now see the number of likes, comments and views on your latest posts. Also, the number is updated in real-time, making it easier to see how your work has grown and reached your audience since you last logged in. <img width="90%" src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20200811/790323019.gif"> The "Trending works" section will let you know which of the works you posted in the past are being seen and appreciated by others. <img width="90%" src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20200805/916269730.png"> ■ More display features <img width="90%" src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20200805/579956818.png"> You can now customize which works are displayed on your Dashboard. Being able to manage your works by tags, and to sort series of works in the same way as individual works, means it will be easier to analyze the reactions to your works in a more cross-sectional and three-dimensional way. <b>Future development</b> We know that many creators will have a hard time getting used to the changes in the management page they had been familiar with for a long time, but we hope that everyone will find a way to use the new Dashboard in accordance to their creative styles. pixiv's mission is to "build an exciting space for you to enjoy creative activities", and we'll be open to your feedback on the new Dashboard as we aim to provide you with an even better creative experience. Thank you for your continued patronage with pixiv. You can now watch Live streams from the iOS version of the pixiv Sketch app pixiv https://www.pixiv.net/info.php?id=6023 2020-08-05T15:00:00+09:00 Greetings from pixiv. As of August 5, 2020, Live streams became available for viewing on the iOS version of the pixiv Sketch app. <img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20200805/815170396.png" style="width:100%;max-width:500px;"> Up until now, you could only view Live streams from a computer or from the official pixiv app, but with this update, you'll finally be able to watch streams from the iOS version of the pixiv Sketch app. You can support artists by liking and commenting on their Live streams. Being able to stream from anywhere will surely boost your daily enjoyment. <b>■ About the Live feature</b> The icon for Live streams is now showing above the "Everyone", "Following", "Popular" buttons on top of the main page.

You can use pixiv Sketch right away through your pixiv account.

As of July 30, English translations for titles and captions on the illustration posting page are available on the desktop version of pixiv. This trial feature will initially be provided to some of those using the Japanese version of pixiv and will be available to more users later on. For this reason, some users will experience the new feature before others. <b>Adding an English translation to titles and captions</b> Adding English translations of titles and captions is completely optional. An automatic translation feature is provided to make it easy for users to add English translations. The English translations you add will be displayed to all those who use pixiv in English. We hope you'll take advantage of this new feature to reach even more people with your art. In the early days of pixiv, most of the active users were Japanese. Over the past few years, however, the number of registered foreign users has increased and users outside Japan now represent 40% of the entire active userbase. Therefore, thanks to the English translation of Japanese titles and captions, we believe that foreign users will have an easier time understanding the setting and contents of Japanese works. <b>How to add English translations</b> 1. Enter a title and caption for your illustration on the illustration posting page. 2. Click on "Add English translation for this title/caption", that will be displayed after completing step 1. 3. An English translation will be automatically added in the English section of the page. * You may receive revision suggestions to improve the accuracy of your translation. pixiv is looking forward to receiving your feedback to use for future development. Don't hesitate to let us know what you think of pixiv and report any issues you have found. Thank you for your patronage with pixiv.
