permalink Love the new layout! ^^ I only just joined a couple of days ago, so this really came as quite the surprise, but looking around, all the new features seem really cool, and I can't wait to try them out.

Just FYI, whenever I try to view the comments on the articles in the news section, I get an error and can't see them. Is it just me or is something going on? I used to be able to see them in the old layout, so I thought this was worth mentioning. (This bit's fixed, thanks!) Anyway, thanks so much for all your hard work! (And I adore the Rice Balls.

permalink The updates are good, but there are a couple of bugs I found that have not been fix yet. I can't break America law by finding job *I am international student now* so is there any other way of being able to subscribe without having to pay money?
There is problem with accepting and declining friend requests. Is the site browser specific? I can't accept or decline on Firefox or Opera.
Also similer problem when you try and scroll down lyrics video will stop playing and browser will freeze.

I can't reproduce the problem with the freezing browser. That really shouldn't happen :/ It only happens when you start scrolling the lyric down?

About the account thing, we are really sorry but the only way of upgrading is to pay. Since January the traffic of our site has been booming and we had to upgrade to new servers. In the old version there were only a few ads so in the end it couldn't cover all of our expenses. That's when we started brainstorming how to deal with this situation and a new site with another source of income was quickly decided. Three months later we are launching the current version in the hope we can cover the costs for our servers and our work. :D

The account thing will become hopefully our main source of income and it's necessary for as well us (if we can't make money with it, we can't work on the site) as well for all the people using JpopAsia, because with no income, we can't pay our servers and no servers = no JpopAsia. :RBcrying:

We understand that most of our visitors our young and do not have a lot of spending power but also the prices are not ridiculously high. Don't mistake us of aggressively commercializing JpopAsia, but the past 2 years we build this site just for really nothing. ;) The little money we receive from advertising was spend on our servers. So things really had to change with increasing traffic and thus increasing server costs. X:

So if we have an option for upgrading without paying, we our breaking our own windows (unless of course no one upgrades :crying: ). So upgrading without paying will never become an option. We will also not give these accounts for free as a prize in contests or something, Pro and Creme accounts and all the their features are really only for the members how have paid for it :hroll:
