For those of you who may be unaware, there has been an on-going debate about whether artwork from the Pixiv website should be allowed on Minitokyo. Earlier this week, Minitokyo and Pixiv reached an agreement to remove all non-published Pixiv art from Minitokyo. Please understand that this was a joint agreement made by the Staff of both sites and will not be reversed.
+So, what does this mean for YOU?+
Well, besides a loss of some amazing "scans", nothing else. For uploaders, this means a massive purge of almost all Pixiv artwork from the gallery.
Wallers, take note that this will not only affect the scan gallery, but wallpapers featuring Pixiv artwork will be deleted as well.
Members, it would be greatly appreciated if you could help us by reporting any Pixiv artwork we may have missed. There is a lot of Pixiv artwork that was tagged incorrectly that is still floating around the galleries.
Thanks again for understanding!

On a side note, I'd like to add we decided to allow only scanned material in "Scans" gallery. Official wallpapers (be it for games, or animes) and Game CG rips (Visual Novel rips are allowed too) will still be allowed.
It will take some time until we'll purge everything, and we could make some mistakes too. Staff will highly appreciate if you would report Pixiv content (with original Pixiv link, if possible) and, of course, mistaken deletions.
Thank you MTers :)

Regarding wallpapers with pixiv art, you can only post it if you have the original artist's permission to use their art in your wallpaper. Please note that if you don't get an answer from the artist, it's equivalent of a "no"!
If you have obtained their permission, it's common courtesy to credit the original artist in your signature, and please say so in the description (with a link to the original art that you've used)
