Welcome to the all-new JpopAsia!
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!

    Something I've noticed is if you don't type the name of the group EXACTLY like how it's used, the database won't find it. For example, looking for "hey say jump" will bring 0 result, I really have to type "Hey! Say! Jump" to find it. This is very frustrating.

    About the video and lyrics, it could be like before. Now they are separated and we can't watch the video while reading the lyrics. (; . ;)

    This is definitely a change that will take some getting used to, but I welcome it, I mean, I've been here 8 years so I've seen the site change once or twice at least. It's for the better so I'm happy. No use really complaining about anything until the site is more finalized. Keep up the good work guys ^^

    This definitely will take some time to get used to. But given that the last version was pretty much dead in recent times, it's nice that JPA finally had a makeover. I'm aware there's still room for improvement but hey, I say well done so far!

    It would have been nice if JPA could have allowed us to keep the info from our old profile instead of having us remake it.

    Also, another thing I just noticed... there's no way to have the news listed by date, it seems to only be by relevancy which is decided by us by upvoting things. If it's true that's.... dumb.

    What happened to the "New Music" box that showed videos just released for Jpop, Jrock, Kpop, etc;? It was similar to the "Now Trending" box...

    The layout is ehh. I kinda liked the old look because it was open and easy access in my opinion, but now there are more tabs and more scrolling to find something.

    The best thing about the site so far is that it's much faster.
    Right now, I think it's better to put the profile stats (no of comments, jpops) near the top of the profile page rather than on the bottom. I'll come up with more suggestions later.

    Might be a good feature to add. The news are more or less always attached to an artist's profile, so if you're a fan you can find it by going to the profile.

    Older topics/news won't find itself onto the trending wall, to keep things fresh and hopefully always up to date.

    I just don't like the voting for the news. I don't know which news is new and which is old. Whoever votes for the news they like is up to the top...really confusing!

    I hope so. This was great site until you have deleted live feed chat and journals from the start page. Im glad JPA are working better on smartphones so this is plus of this change you did make.

    We needed to remove the chat because of the server instabilities. With the new version we can consider a new chat again. Journals will be integrated into the frontpage feed again, with enough upvotes you can make it to the frontpage. You'll love it once it's all finished.

    That sounds pretty good, I almost thought JPA turned into a simple blog. The styling looks great so far, nice work. I hope the chat returns just as good :)

    we will make the video moods clickable so you can find similar songs, and will suggest new artists in the feed too, to encourage discovering new artists this way

    It's replaced with the trending videos below news. If you change tabs you will see them from the respective genres. At the moment it only shows from the charts because we need to build up the views to determine the trending videos in the new version.

    The front page is based on 7 days of up voting, so there won't be super old news from let's say 6 months popping up.

    would be cool if you could add the ' Popular Videos' section  like in old JPA version.  HERE  http://www.jpopasia.com/celebrities/    and would be so  nice if u could unblock me from adding videos. I know all the rules already and not going to add short videos anymore. i'm 7 years on JPA after all ^_^

    Yes, i did :)  but it still needs an approval by admin:(   i remember i was adding videos without approval needed. then i got banned from this feature because i have added few videos that were not full. it was missing like few seconds in videos and i got blocked after that. now i know all the rules of adding and all the stuff,so really hope i can be unbanned from this. it's been many years already that i'm banned from adding videos without crew approval.

    Everyone needs approval at the moment until you build up reputation. We'll do a recount in the future so the numbers will be synced but atm we have higher priorities. Its noted though.

    I just want to say that I really like the new version of JpopAsia. Especially how you can 'upvote' comments, and posts... and how it's possible to exchange gold for Jpops. The frontpage looks nice... better than the old one. The speed really improved as well.

    Also I didn't had any problems with data being lost.

    I think people should be patient, because JpopAsia's still making things work for everyone. Change is good!
