    Still happening here and my cash income has taken a massive hit.

    This is still happening to me in both of my towns. If I come into the game and there is cash on some building, going to KL or neighbors generally clears almost all of it.

    I just thought to look at the "Bugs and Glitches" part of The Simsons Tapped Out. (I usually come to Game Discussion and bypass it.) There is a thread there, but a weak thread of 2 pages, whereas this one has 6 pages. Maybe if we all posted over there as well, it would bring it to EA's attention. (probably not, but I'm suggesting it.)

    Well, I see my link didn't work. Don't know what I did wrong. So just look up where it says The Simpsons: Tapped out>Game Discussion, and tap on The Simpsons:Tapped out, then look for Bugs and Issues, you'll find it.

    Mine is also auto clearing too. It's irritating because I want to gather cash to buy the rest of the land and be ready for the next update.

    In addition to that random buildings are clearing from time to time, for example, in a group of brown houses a couple will have something to collect whilst the rest have nothing. I feel KBBL and the studio are most annoying beacause I have to pay to play those so it feels like a double loss.

    Apologies to my neighboreenos if they find my SF is empty of tapping opportunities.

    KBBL, the studio, the farm and squidport have all auto cleared with no reward. Squidport annoys me the most because it's 3 days to get a tile now. I can deal with the buildings, but not the stuff we have to pay for.

    I just lost a Squidport tile! 3day wait, and 17K! Grrrr!

    Mostly I feel badly for my loyal friends, who I'm afraid are finding nothing to tap!

    So at this point there is no fix? I was not having this problem until I updated and played on my phone this afternoon. Until then I have only played on my I pad since the last update when it seems to have started for others. I guess I will see what happens in the morning.

    I just did some experimenting, since I only had brown houses and faster available. What I found was that when I opened the game my buildings were ready and I was able to collect them and get money and xp. When I went anywhere when I came back anything that was ready when I left auto collected with no money or Xp, and restarted at o. But, anything that wasn't ready yet continued on its normal countdown. This meant that this evening I got screwed on my 8 hour buildings and faster, but I was able to salvage my 12s. I'm hoping that means that if I stay out of Springfield during the day and always collect immediately, and sync while nothing is ready my neighbours should mostly have things to tap as different things finish their timers through the day, and I will still be able to make money. Hopefully this gets fixed soon, but until then, hopefully this helps someone else.

    It is sad to see that this thread is still going. I must have been lucky that all my problems were fixed with the last update. The question I have for people who still are having this happen is are you still getting any friend taps? It seemed like when i had this glitch happening the only time I received friend taps is if i was in my game when someone would visit. I have seen a few of my neighbors names in this thread and they have all had items to tap when i visited so i was just wondering if they are getting the FP? If people are not gettimg FP maybe try tapping in KL and see if that works?Good luck everyone hope this gets fixed soon. Losing all the xp and $ was rough as i am still saving up for land.

    It's happening to me too and today I noticed I lost a tile as well. :cry: 3.5 days gone.

    Right now my strategy is to go in and collect before going to friends in the morning. Then during the day I'm not too concerned. Cash isn't an issue for me, but the XP loss sucks.

    I'm turning on all my Christmas lights just as an indication that I'm affected by the clearing glitch.

    Hopefully the lights will catch on. That way it will be easy for visitors to know that towns are affected by the glitch.

    I am still auto clearing as well. Thought the problem had been solved, but there is now nothing but a couple of brown houses to tap. It is really frustrating. Please neighbours don't leave me. :(
    Dont worry. I wouldn't dream of dropping any of my neighbors. I too am still auto clearing, and I've noticed that many of my neighbors are experiencing the same.

    [flash]I've wondered but didn't catch on till now that I am affected as well. But for me it seems as only buildings that would have handshakes. I had 5 buildings near my LZ that should have been available for visitors. King toots, hermans, cool, Flanders, and Simpsons. Plus Moe's for graffiti. Simpson and Flanders had a handshake, Moe's had graffiti, but 2 neighbors visited. Other 3 buildings were cleared. Earlier, I saw no handshakes from overnight. Which could be coincidence. I do stop in as often as possible to keep SH rolling. Not sure if or how that affects it.

    I do have some visits. It's obvious they have to search around to find something to tap. Some of my neighbors have easy to find things to Tap and others I have to search around. I'm going to turn on my Christmas lights so that my neighbors know
    Curiosity killed the cat, but for a while I was a suspect.

    Not only do I continue to experience the auto-clearing (so annoying!), but navigating around my SF, at last on the iPad, is "sluggish". The view moves in fits and starts. Is anyone else experiencing that?

    Well, count me in. I haven't been affected so far, but just now I noticed that all my buildings had cleared. I think it came as a result of finishing HMO

    Request to OP:

    @stevedilge ... could you change the title of this thread to indicate that people will use Christmas lights in their town if their towns are auto-collecting? Then we could keep bumping the thread and hope that more people catch on ... because sometimes we can lose neighbors if they find nothing to tap ... they think it's laziness and inactivity instead of a problem.

    I'm trying to think of a title that would be short enough and make sense ... and you'd also need to edit your first post to add a short explanation of what the title means ...

    Anybody think of what the thread title could be? I'm drawing a complete blank. :(

    My Christmas lights are turned on. Hopefully neighbours who read the forum will know the reason why but the ones who don't may wonder what exactly is going on. :lol:
