Welcome to the new version of JpopAsia! After almost 5 years running on version 4, we build version 5 from the ground up.The most important things you will notice are speed, frontpage, and a new user interface.The lightweight all new custom framework that JpopAsia runs on now, is super fast by itself. Coming weeks we’ll do additional speed improvements that will even cut the loading times by half.Finally mobile friendly! We also prepared a mobile version so it looks great on your phone.The new frontpage is completely redesigned because our focus will shift towards community and relevance. We want you to be able to share the stuff we didn't yet. Everyone can upvote the articles, topics, videos, albums you like and reach the frontpage. With this, there’s another stat called Karma. Karma are upvotes you received on your comments and your shared topics. You can not buy Karma and it reflects the added value you provided to JpopAsia.The other thing we focused on, relevance, is because we intend to increase our news flow with not only more articles, but also direct sources like tweets, instagrams, and youtube videos. If you start following the artists you like, articles, tweets, albums, and videos will have a more prominent position in the feed for you.There are many things to explore. Coming weeks we’ll be releasing our brand new game to encourages more interaction with other members. It’s gonna be awesome.Because of reliability and speed issues we deployed the new JPA prematurely which means some parts that you are used to are still missing. We'll be working coming weeks to get them back like the journals, cards, shares, messages, wallposts etc. Please be patient.For now, don’t be shy to start an interesting topic, upvote an article you’d like, comment and start increasing your Karma and Jpops.It will take a while before you get used to it but we are working hard to make you like it. If you have any questions leave a comment or get in touch with us.Welcome to the new JpopAsia and let’s make it great together!
