    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. :(

    Xmas lights on indicates I have the autoclear problem
    Xmas lights on implies autoclear problem
    Xmas lights -> autoclear problem

    How about
    Autoclear problem? Turn on your Xmas lights!

    Can this auto-collect bug happen also only occasionally? Until today, I did not having any issues, but 10 minutes ago, I left the game for 5 minutes. When I logged in again, all my buildings (exept brown houses) have been cleared automatically (no money and XP earned), also the good white houses.

    Hopefully, EA fixes it fast AND gives us a compensation. The monorail take-down patch is the worst patch ever...

    That makes it sound like the problem will go away if you turn them on. :)

    Ok i changed to title does it make sense? If towns are auto clearing does it affect KL? If not maybe tap in KlL so they still get the FP?

    I hadn't realised auto-clearing wasn't affecting everyone. Thanks for the title change because that is what alerted me. I shall turn on my Xmas lights too.

    ROFLMAO! Obviously I didn't think that one through. ("Brakes out? Flash your headlights!")


    @stevedilge -- Your new title is perfect. If I notice the thread slipping down the page, I'll bump it. :)

    Mine auto clearing is pretty intermittent, but I've got my lights on just in case.

    Ditto - most of my more worthwhile ones (long time slots, bigger payouts) are auto clearing, but the shorter, cheaper ones are generally not.
    Today was a better day, most had not, but that left the dilemma of daring to collect them and leaving little for neighbours...


    Grrrrrrrr.

    Lights will be on, but if neighbours do find something to tap, please feel free to do so! :mrgreen:

    Great idea! My buildings are always clearing when I go to visit my neighbors. Even the handshakes disappear. I have also lost a tile. I have turned on my lights. Sorry to my neighbors if nothing to tap.

    Turned on my lights.

    Hopefully neighbours read the forum & will understand the problem. As it only affects some of us could it be that those who have the glitch are using a certain device (iPad Air here).

    Has anyone tried a delete & re-instal to see if that may fix it?

    If not I'm willing to try later as this glitch is frustrating & annoying,& let people know if it worked.

    I thought it was feeling a bit festive when I was doing my neighbour visits. Lights are now on. But I can't stop singing Deck The Halls for some reason...... :lol:

    Auto clear = check
    Lights on = check
    Kind of 🎃🎃🎃🎃 to have Christmas lights on when it's not Christmas = check
    Neighbors solving problems EA should be fixing = check
    Loving the look of the towns with lights on in the middle of September = check

    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.

    Nice idea with the lights! :thumbup:

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

    I have the glitch, but don't have xmas lights to turn on :(

    For the record, it's totally ok to listen to Christmas music in any month ending in brrrrrrrr.

    It had not occurred to me that some players started after Christmas and would have no lights. :(

    It never occurred to me either. I came across this in a neighbors town yesterday. Hope it works first time trying to post a picture.

    Tried fixing it for you. A little big though.

    I like imgur for this sort of thing. You can edit and scale pics on imgr.
    I'm not familiar with capabilities of photobucket.

    Very small version...
