    My buildings are still auto clearing, but managed to visit neighbours between crashes. Hopefully the glitch will be fixed globally soon, so I have more buildings for them to click on ...

    My game has been auto clearing for a few days now. I'm sorry to my neighbors that visit and can't find anything to tap. I really am angry because I'm not getting the $$ or the experience. Very frustrated. Not looking forward to the next event if this is the kind of poor gaming experience EA has in mind for this game.

    This seems to be happening to me as well. I was wondering why fewer neighbours were visiting. At least I know now and hopefully some of my neighbours will read this and realise that it is not my fault there is nothing to tap.

    Sorry to neighbours, although I am getting some handshakes - stacked - Which is good ish
    Mainly I'm not getting the FP when clearing them, but hopefully you're getting them when putting them 8)

    I find this to still be wildly inconsistent.

    I've got it now too. iOS 9, iPad. I noticed it started happening after the end of monorail, when I started grinding SH resources again, after I bought some tennis courts. I know correlation isn't causation, but maybe we can find a common thread between all of us who've been impacted.

    I've thrown down a big plot of brown houses for friends, all else I can do is say sorry util we know why it happens.

    I had it from the first update ( didn't read the forum first) and sometimes it looks like it is gone. Next thing I know it is doing it again.

    Hubby upgraded the same time as me and didn't have it until yesterday???

    Hopefully this will go away soon and play will be back to normal.

    It's still happening to me and most of my neighbours. I've lost so much revenue because there's nothing to tap, I can't believe it hasnt been fixed.

    It's ridiculous , come on EA its your job to get this fixed. I'm not buying anything more until something is done.

    Sorry neighbours but I know most will understand as majority of us are having the same problems.

    This sounds similar to what I experienced. I had the auto clear glitch, and my husband didn't. Then one day when he was super busy, I thought I'd help him grind out tennis courts in SH, and what do you suppose I discovered? His buildings were auto clearing, probably had been all along, but he just doesn't pay the same amount of attention to the game as I do.

    Just wanted to chime in and confirm that this is still occurring. It's now been nearly a week and only exacerbates the fact that many of us were rolled back to level 57 and can't even grind our way to 58 due to lost XP.

    Its a glitch caused by the irs building setting to be active but the actual irs not being released causing this

    Thanks for that insight. Do you have any idea why the buildings don't pay out when they're automatically cleared? Surely if someone wanted the IRS building, they would want to get money and XP when they auto collected. Also, does it make sense that the collect seems to go in progression from low rent buildings on the first collect, then higher valued buildings each subsequent collect? Was the IRS building programmed to collect from different types of buildings? Maybe I'm asking too many questions.

    It's still auto clearing for me too. It doesn't matter whether they tap in KL or SF. Sometimes I get one handshake or a few or none, but you see the name of the neighbor who tapped. So thanks to my neighbors who tap regardless. All we can do is wait for a fix

    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. :(

    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.

    I went to the Ea chat help Saturday and was told they had to kick it upstairs to a simpsons specialist to fix my account.
    They said I would be contacted be email for anything I had to do. Still waiting, still not gettin money or Xp from buildings as the timers reset to the start of countdown.
    I can't see an irs building having anything to do with this as we don't receive anything when the timers reset. Been happening since the monorail removal on iPad on both 8.4 and 9.0 IOS.

    Yep, happening regularly to me on iOS 9 and an iPad. Really sucks to have a town full of dollar signs and do friend visits and the dollar signs are all gone when I get back, with no increase in cash. Sucks even harder because I have been trying to save up for more land, and can't. So I have just been staying out of my game so neighbors will hopefully have something to tap. Hope that this gets resolved soon.
    One on getter for the clickity clack please
