@pawoo_support Translation (roughly edited from Google)

Pixiv Co., Ltd. has a Mastodon instance "Pawoo". On December 2, 2019. Crossgate Corporation, Russell Co., Ltd, take over the operation.

With the transfer, the operating company of “Pawoo” will be changed to Crossgate Co., Ltd. and Russell Co., Ltd. after December 2, 2019. “Pawoo” will continue to be operated as an independent site by Crossgate Inc. and Russell Inc. You can continue to use your current account.

We thank you for your continued patronage of “Pawoo” at our company, and even after the operating company has been changed to Crossgate Co., Ltd. and Russell Co., Ltd., we will continue to enhance “Pawoo”. Thank you very much.

@pawoo_support pixiv運営の方々、お疲れ様でした。ありがとうございました。そしてpawooを引き取ってくださったクロスゲートおよびラッセルにひとまず感謝を。このpawooが御社らのなにかの収益につながれば何よりですが、その結果として現在のtwitterのような息苦しい環境にならぬよう努めて頂きたく存じます。

@pawoo_support 新しい運営さんに感謝を伝えると共に、今後のpawooも絵に携わる人達にとって住みよいSNSにしてくださる事を期待しています。


@pawoo_support 今でも絵を描いていられるのはPawooのおかげです。運営お疲れ様です。ありがとうございました!

@pawoo_support This does not seem like a good idea, considering how many of Mastodon's other services had very SJW/Woke/Cuckiesh Terms of Service Guideliness.

Plus they wll be owned by a South Korean Company if this goes trough.

Pawoo Musicも閉鎖したしpixivは縮退してますね。

@Pawoo_support Could this imply any changes to the rules of the platform in the future? As you probably know the West is declaring war on #artwork it deems immoral, with faith groups even pressuring the #UN to draft a recommendation on criminalizing art. Is the new administration of #Pawoo prepared to resist such pressure and defend content creators, or do we risk seeing #artists being #banned for their drawings?
