    There is no 2 hour for tomorrow even if ya start it before the timer resets. You'll have 6,4,4,6 regardless of waiting before or after the time resets.

    That is just how mine has started, the timer resets at 1am UK time and I have sent Cletus on the first 6hr task. Not sure where the OP got the two hour tasks from for today :?

    Sheesh. Glad I have all the prizes, although I'd like to get some sweet, sweet emblem donuts.

    I was happy to avoid these 20-hour days so far, but can't avoid them any more with two coming up in the next two weeks.

    I'm glad I'm closing in on the donuts prize box, so at least the emblems will be all the more sweeter.

    Yes, I think by the middle of next week I'm hoping I will have every item, just 1000 emblems away from the stonecutters table, so that should be mine by the end of the night tonight :-)

    So despite numerous attempts to help people with this, it continues to elude some.

    Today's 6/17 calendar was (6,1,1,2) . Tomorrow's 6/18 is (6,4,4,6).

    I have a midnight task reset and a parchment reset of 3am. That's only 3 hours. So I can only do one substitution this time. The substitution still gives me a 6 hr task. So at 12:01 am I'll start my first task. It won't finish until 6:01 am.
    No later then 9am I'll start my second task. I'll have 14 hrs left to do. 9+14=23 which is 11:00 pm. The one hour buffer gives me time to get the tasks started. I'll alarm each.

    Depending on the length between your task reset and parchment reset times you may be able to substitute from yesterday and pick up that 1 hour second task and get yourself a (6,1,4,6) day.

    I doubt anyone could get a (6,1,1,6) because that would mean a length between your task reset and parchment reset times of greater than 8 hours.

    Sad indeed. With my Midnight/3am window my plan is to start the first task at 12:01 am. I'll get the 4 hr first task from the previous day. It will be done at 4:01 am. Now I've got to do the remaining 18 hrs. So I'll set the alarm for 5am.
    Alarm all the reset. Finish sometime after 11:00 pm.

    This event is an exercise in Time Management; which is a skill I've honed over decades. :)

    Of course I don't have to do any of this. I'll be reaching 35,000 by Friday afternoon 6/20. Totally freemium, no donuts spent. A lot of work. My reward? The fun of it!

    I worked a quarter century as a manager of staffing, scheduling over 600 hospital staff to cover 24/7. Time management is something which, with enough therapy, I hope to forget entirely. ;)

    The skill I've honed for these last two decades is called "Not Staying Up Until Midnight". My son's town is most likely to remain anvil-less. :)

    OMG, thank you . You are my hero for today. I couldn't figure out why His Oneness' Calendar NEVER seems to match me. It's because I'm -3 GMT and I always start at my midnight when he resets his tasks. Depending on the day, I may finish up after 8 GMT, which means I am flipping over to the next day and day smushing, thus, never exactly matching his schedule.

    I wouldn't stress out. It probably won't be the way it's portrayed anyways. I've never had a long day and my tasks have never matched up to the calendar listed. Even accounting that I start after midnight and am carrying over a task from the previous day. For example a couple of days ago my first task was a 1 hour which I started at 12:01am. --previous day had no 1 hour tasks. Also last week one of my days ended with a 1 hour task- but there was no 1 hour listed anywhere for that day. I'm not making this up, my schedule is random.
    But if it did turn out I had a 6 hour without enough time ce la vie. It's only 400 emblems. I've consistently gotten 2,000 a day. No worries.

    It will be possible for me.

    The length between the two doesn't have to be greater than 8 hours, just 8 hours is enough. My task resets at 2 am, and the parchmet resets 8 hours later at 10 am. I have trouble sleeping, and started the first task right after 2 am. If I for instance starts the second task at 0815 and then starts the third task at 0930 they will both be 1 hour, and I will only have the last 6 hour task left.

    I just got my first 6 hour task at midnight EDT.

    So this is a 20 hour day? I don't think I will be getting all 4 tasks done, it is my day off and sleep is a bigger priority :D

    My tasks have never matched up with the calender either, my number 1's task reset at 1am and my parchment resets at 10.am. Ive been lucky and only had 1 20 hr task day so far.

    This morning i tapped on number 1 at 6.30 am (uk time) and got a 6 hr task, that will finish at 12.30 pm which still gives me 13 hrs to complete the rest of the days tasks. I did look at the calender what it was 1st got posted but its never helped so now i go with the flow, im about 2000 away from the stone cutters table so im ahead emblems wise and im lucky i have very good neighbours who visted me daily and i visit them daily so i should finish ahead of schedule.
