    The "old man" is Agnes Skinner, she's a regular character. The mission is clean the streets. Not curling.

    Lisa running scared is the mission with milhouse where she is getting chased from him. Although I don't see him anywhere.

    Wow, currently I have Agnes at bingo and Lisa serving detention. is Milhouse chasing her part of the valentine's day event (I'm still growing roses) . All of my characters are doing completely different tasks when I view my town from my feeder town. Is that normal?

    If I'm not mistaken, the characters that are doing different tasks are doing so because you have set them to indoor tasks, and they need to be outside for your neighbors to tap on. Example: I have Comic Book Guy in court right now in my feeder town, but when I go in to the town from my main town, it shows him standing in front of the courthouse. Does this make any sense? I think I just confused myself lol

    I think you are mistaken. They can be tapped while indoors. If you see him outside the courthouse when visiting, it should be because his task there is finished. (Characters will also appear briefly when their valentines are tapped, then fade back inside the building.)

    OK, but if you are in a neighbors town, and all their characters are doing inside tasks, how are you seeing them to tap them?

    Well, really, we're tapping on cards, not on characters, so I just tap on the cards I see. They show up wherever there's a character that can be tapped. (At least, I thought that was how it worked.)

    The main question is: which characters can be tapped?
    I regularly find that some of my friends have visited me and tapped only one or two of my characters. Why would they do that if more are available?
    It is the same the other way round: sometimes there are no / one / two characters in a neighbour's SF that I can tap, sometimes I can tap all of them.
    We have to figure out the criteria for that...

    Without that pic, I wouldn't have believed it. I wonder if they created the skin for a different task and then thought better about it once they realized that no one in the US knows what the heck curling is.

    Nope, I clearly remember someone on this forum asking about the old guy with the metal detector :D

    The reason that episode was so memorable to me was because it took place in my city, Vancouver. :mrgreen: I don't follow curling...or any sport for that matter.

    Now I know something funny is happening. I purposely put them at 8 hour tasks so that I'd know who should be inside or out, and what they should be doing. I went in to collect from the town, and Selma and Patty were supposed to be inside the DMV working, and they were outside, practically on top of each other, and one was doing the smoke break task, and the other was doing her hula dance. Snake was supposed to be inside the retirement home conning money and he was outside combing his hair. LOL now I know I didn't send him on a 45 second task.

    Milhouse is chasing Lisa around the boardwalk in my game. Assuming it will be the same for everyone else.

    Finally!! I decided to move my DMV into my landing zone so I could see what was happening with Selma and Patty. As soon as I enter the town, I can see them rush out of the building and start the other tasks, so I'm thinking they do that so they will be tappable. I also saw people from surrounding buildings come out. It was actually driving me nuts LOL. What helped is I also saw it mentioned in another thread, I believe it was "not enough tappable characters for neighbors" or something to that effect.
