Limited number of mixi accounts available

Edit: As of May 2013, these accounts are no longer available.

To our mixi community:

As far as I can tell, mixi accounts can still be created. There are few methods which I checked last week that will validate an account.

These accounts will be provided free of charge. You'll need to follow these instructions.

How?


  1. Make, print or find a postcard.

    Any one will work. If you don't have one ready, you can print a picture on a thick piece of paper and cut it out.


  2. Post a comment in this thread, so we know who sent the postcard.

    Make sure to post an image of the postcard or describe it. Or you can write your LJ username or e-mail on the postcard.

    You can also send me a private LJ message. Do not post your e-mail or mailing address on LJ, use the message system for that.


  3. Mail the postcard to:


Once I've received your postcard, you will receive a username (e-mail address) and password to your new mixi account typically within two weeks. This will be sent to your LJ inbox or to an e-mail address you specified.

Account requests are subject to discretion, and this program may end at any time. For example, if my mixi method stops working, you may not get an account.

Why?

There were too many people posting in comments and private messages asking for mixi accounts and I didn't have a lot of time to create accounts.

I have little way of knowing whether a request is genuine or how seriously the person wants the account. It's unfair to other users if people with ill intentions are using multiple mixi accounts to promote religion, make unwanted advances on girls, or send out advertising.

A postcard does not have monetary value to the receiver, so I do not have a motive to obtain them, and I do not take upon an obligation to return any value. The time it takes to send one helps limit requests to people who truly want a mixi account, and costs only a small amount of postage to send.

Note:

  • The address above is inside a picture

  • You may share this LJ post's URL. However, I discourage you from sharing the postal address, as it may change frequently.

  • The picture above will be has been updated to include an Intelligent Mail (IM) machine readable barcode. You can use it into a program like Photoshop or Word.

Hey! Uh, I really want one mixi.jp account, and I'd like to postcard you. But that's an US address, which may cost a little.. Is there any ways to get it for...like free?

I might be able to work something out for you. I will need an e-mail address or an LJ username to message you, though (not Facebook).

I live in Australia and would like to get on Mixi

Hi, I'm Bobby. I am in Australia. It is difficult to send a postcard so far. I spent some time living in Japan, and I would really like to contact my friends again. Is it possible for you to get me a Mixi account. I have tried everything to no avail. Thanks

New account

Hey, I would like one too if you don't mind. My friend's a medical student, and she had to go back to Japan to help out with what's been happening lately, and I miss her.
