Pixiv Tutorial: New Account
by *elee0228

My previous walkthrough for account creation on Pixiv is a little out of date, so I decided to refresh it with this snazzy flash-based slideshow tutorial. It should make things a bit easier to follow. If you don't have a Pixiv account yet, I hope you'll try using this tutorial to create your new account. Hit the download link to get a bigger version. Please note me if you have any questions about this.

When I do the captcha for the "are you human" part of the registering, it keeps saying it doesn't match when it clearly does...what should I do?

Are you using capital letters in your name or password? Try just using lower case. Some other people had the same issue.

No no, it's not the name or password part, it's the next part when they give you a code...
Either way, I'm not using capitals.

I think it might be a problem with the encoding. It's been awhile since I did the registration. Maybe try reloading the code until you get one that's all numbers. I think I remember that works better.

If I reload the code, I have to put in all of my information for the registration part in again :( Ah, thank you though

Darn, Im still having trouble trying to sign up, It keeps taking me back to captcha and the problem is I followed everything correctly.

That happens if you use capital letters in the password or login. It has to be all lowercase.

I need help, I tried it in lowercase and uppercase, japanese and english. I don't have any spaces or special letters in the ID and Nickname box but it keeps telling me "Only letters A-Z, numbers, dashes (-), or underscores ( _ ) are allowed."

you shouldn't use any uppercase characters. Stick to lower case and numbers and it should work.

What browser are you using? I remember seeing something like that. It should work in Firefox.

I can't do anything on this site because I'm using Internet Explorer.

I haven't tried IE, but it should work. Try Firefox if it doesn't.

I think last time I tried to sign up for Pixiv it wouldn't let me because of my e-mail address. Are there certain e-mail domains it won't allow?

Don't use any special characters in your user id. It has to be made up of just alphabet, numbers, hyphen or underscore characters.

luckily the captcha isn't in kanji~!

another hint: for chrome users, there's an autotranslator for japanese
It won't translate everything, but is okay as far as autotranslators go ..

Now you need to add the tutorial for how to recover a lost or forgotten password.

That's not that hard... Go to [link] and pick the second option, and fill out your e-mail address in the box, then click the button. You should get an e-mail with either a password reminder or a lin to reset it.

Thanks. I've made such a mess of it in the past that I'm thinking it'll be easier if I learn to read Japanese. :)
