August Post a Day Challenge Day 17: The End of Amazing
So today I learned the sad news that Pixiv.com will be closing at the end of August. Sucks I know, I really loved that site too. But fear not, Pixiv is not gone for good; the .net version of the site, the main version, will still be here as the only version now.
I know there isn’t much to do about it closing down, but I still really like the .com layout over the .net one; to illustrate this, I’ve gotten screen shots to show the difference of the two sites. I’ll show first the .com version, then the .net version.

So after all is said and done, I still like the .com version the best. It’s easier to navigate, less cluttered and things are just so simple and easy to use there. The .net version has things I don’t really like about it, the fact you always have to go to another page to view a pic instead of it just popping out and you can do everything there. I also really like the infinite scroll feature on the .com version. On the .net site, especially when on an artists page, you always have to click to the next page to keep looking at their pics. With the .com site, you just scroll down and everything is there.
I could go on for a while about why I like the .com site, but this is just how it’s going to be now, like it or not. If you’re on Pixiv, which site do you like more and why? Let me know in the comments!
Here’s that Kotori pic by the way, I know you were eyeing it.
