This week, the Japanese art site pixiv.net launched an official English-language Twitter account and an English-language encyclopedia, which explains some of the characters and memes that often appear on the site. The encyclopedia is user-edited, allowing English-speaking browsers of the pixiv site to contribute. The entries also feature artwork from the site's users.
The encyclopedia features an English-language version of the Japanese version's tool ranking, whose top ten results are as follows:
- PaintTool Sai
- Mechanical Pencils
- Colored Pencil
- The Tegaki Blog website
The list includes 72 entries; the ComiPo! manga-creation software is #49 on the list.
