Not buying a card after 24 hours deducts my Jpops?

So what is this? I had an opportunity to buy a card and left the window open as I had planned to look for ways to earn Jpops to buy it, but I was busy and ended up letting the timer run down, and found that 8000 Jpops (the value of the card) had been deducted for no rhyme and reason. So what is this? We're being punished for not buying a card? I get it if we're punished for not paying tolls or taxes, but this? I'm not owing anyone Jpops, and I don't even get the card in return for what I lost!  What's the entire purpose of this feature?

That's it I'm done with this game. First the decrease in rewards per round, and now this. Everything is so screwed up with this game.

    I had a question.. I had seen that the other day what metallion talked about.. When I was playing the game on my phone. It told me if I didn't collect the jpops when I landed on chance in 24 hrs at the bottom it said i would go bankrupt... what's that about?

    Calm down. This must be a bug, I'll contact the admin about it.

    Sorry, after all that has went on with the site over the past few weeks (including that no adblock change a few days ago), it was hard for me to stay calm after watching my Jpops drop into the negative zone for something that makes absolutely no sense. Thanks for helping me to contact the admin about this though.

    It says if you don't accept within the 24 hours you go completely bankrupt - I checked the faqs for the game and they state that if you don't accept or cancel, you lose everything! So to only lose 8k, I think you got lucky! (Don't know if this was changed recently but yeah, it's a really bad decision!)  
    As for the adblock change, I've posted on here (funnily enough it wasn't accepted as a topic) And I've emailed the site team, I have barely visited in the last few day since the change because the ads are just unbearable and I really dislike any site that forces you to turn off ad block.. It's just a stupid decision - especially for those of us who use work computers and don't want a load of ads and crap on our machines!

    The bankrupt thing is only for paying taxes and tolls. I'm talking about buying cards, for which the screen simply says I have 24 hours to accept the offer. Nowhere does it state that I'm supposed to be bankrupted if I don't buy after 24 hours, which is why I was so damn pissed when I saw that I lost so much. In which world does it make sense to be bankrupted for not buying something? 

    The admin had better make a comment about this issue soon. Elenko said the admin was already notified of this issue but I have yet to see any action taken regarding my lost Jpops.

    Ah that must have been removed then - I'm sure it was on the original card purchases for the game, still a bit crappy for you :(

    About the ad blocker, I agree we could have done a better job. It's turned off for now.

    Thank you! ^_^ I know that you guys do need to make revenue and I totally get that ads support that, but the sizes and placements are just so unbearable! The little one on the right, under the feed is absolutely fine, but ads in the main panel (even the horizontal ones at the top) are just annoying. They disrupt the viewing of the site and will put new users off if they get those warnings and huge ads :)

    The adblock was changed due to backlash, so it works with it now. We do appreciate if the adblock is turned off, however, since the site's servers rely on the revenue for them to be kept running (that and in-site purchases).

    I have yet to receive a reply from the admin, but I'll re-send the message to him.

    That's why I'm suggesting JPOPASIA if they can return the friend lists and if it's possible that buying the card for friends by giving them that special link to trusted friends so they can buy the card for them if we're out of jpops because we're only given 24hours. Is it possible? I don't know if you got my point lol :P

    Having an issue as well. I'm having trouble playing the game for some reason... the wait time for the end has clearly been surpassed, but I'm still stuck there, and it won't let me roll the dice again.

    I logged into your account and checked what's going on. I think it was a temporary bug as I saw an option to start a new round. I clicked it and you're placed at the beginning of the board again. The dice are now also visible to me.

    If the dialog doesn't appear, have you tried refreshing the page?
