    The empty taskbook has been my goal since day 1! Closest I've come was 2 tasks. Stupid Krustyland.

    Zero task, that's odd. I wish I had zero tasks in my task book. The lingering tasks just bugs me for some reason. Skinner has wanted to shop at the KM since Whacking Day.

    I could never have an empty task book because I keep getting these stupid random tasks. I wish they would do away with them.

    I try to avoid them for Homer and Lisa, who usually are one short task so I can frequently expolit my re-appearing nuclear waste barrels. However, whereas I usually get one or tow of those side quests when I'm down to one or two unfinished tasks, I only seem to be getting one at a time right now (at the moment, it's harvesting Moonshine for the umpteenth time).

    I've only started getting those today. At first I thought it was great (a little badge of honour, in my mind) but I'm already sick of it. I really hope crops ones don't show up - I'm not tapping the last handshake on my corn unless someone shows up and puts a gun to my head, and they'll drive me nuts just sitting there!

    The bad news is: Crop ones definitely will show up, and unlike with the character ones, which disappear when you leave your Springfield without tapping the exclamation mark, there's no way to avoid them...

    My taskbook was empty nearly all day yesterday, but then last night Willie shut himself up to work on his manifesto. It seems anticipation for the holidays affects us all differently. :D

    Must be boring to have a empty taskbook. Glad I have plenty of tasks.

    In my experience, it seems like crop tasks pop up only when you don't click the speech bubbles... random tasks are irksome, but I'd suggest doing 'em faithfully if you want to preserve the corn.

    I do all of the random tasks and have been prompted many times to grow certain crops. Perfection irritates me to no end!

    I'm not entirely sure I've ever had one of these random tasks...

    But my task at certainly isn't empty.

    You are lucky. I think I've only had an empty task book for about 5 minutes. It seems 1 or 2 people always want to be on task. And if not them, then the farm wants something. It's why I'll probably never grow corn. I get random prompts for farm stuff every 2 days it seems.

    I love having it empty. Too much clutter with randomness.

    In terms of the farm tasks appearing, I'd keep the random ones there (3) as that is the max it generates. If you keep clearing them, then a farm task will auto generate if you don't get 3 !s.

    I found it's harder for the game to generate ! if you have all the characters in Krustyland. I think there's a period of time where it decides that character can't be next on the random list, then selects the next one.

    Right now it want's Marge to walk Maggie, but she's busy speeding up the corn. Willie apparently needs to wax the floors, but I'm waiting for a proper 24 hour moment. I definitely don't want to lock him up with Christmas coming.

    Perfection appeared the other day, but still 55 some days on corn, so that will be there for a long time.

    Saw your btw and immediately went to the App Store and saw I had one update ready. Turned out to be for Star Walk. Had me going for a second.
    I never got into the X'mas corn so I have just the one Moonshine task in progress in my task book.

    LOL, 19 days for me. I got the moonshine task two days into the corn build, so I've been staring at that icon for a while now. Based on the complaints here, I assume the game automatically gives you a farm quest for free with every corn crop you start.

    And yeah, I like an empty task bar, but it's been a while since I enjoyed it.

    I hate thr random tasks. I really wish they would do away with non story line quests. I'd love an empty task book.
