Yeah I know what you mean, and I've even grown corn by mistake :?

    Is it to much to ask for a button that confirms you want to do a task that longer than 24 hours. :?
    I'm getting sick of inadvertently sending Apu on 7 day shifts as you mindlessly tap the 24 hour tasks for everyone. :evil:
    Just store the kwik e mart?

    Maybe you should tap slightly less mindlessly. Just enough to pay attention to the numbers.

    But that is sucky because then Apu goes to the end of the list.

    But if you want a solution, store Apu once, so that Manjula (if you have her) always comes first and they have a joint 24 hour task :)

    Meh, I do it all the time, even when I'm thinking specifically about not doing it. I just get into a rhythm. Wolfcastle too with his 36 hour task. It's tough when you have eleventy-bazillion characters to set on task.

    It's not a big deal. I just leave them on the long task unless I need them for something.

    I'd much rather have a "set all characters on XX hour task" button, than a long task confirmation button.

    Yes me too. That would be much more useful than an arbitrary confirmation button. I'm not really sure why a long task would require confirmation. Where's the line then? 24 hours might be too long for some people. That would be super annoying to have to tap a confirmation button every time you send someone on a 24 hour task.

    That would be really sweet. Though my preferred time is 4 hours and quite a few characters don't have four hour tasks.

    I think the only one all playable characters have is 12 hours.

    That may be technically true. (I'm a little annoyed that both of Penelope's twelve hour tasks require premium buildings.)

    Though I think if you discount the pets then all characters have an hour long task too?

    If you discount Jub Jub, they all have a 24 hour. If you also discount Stampy, they all have a one hour, and probably all have an eight hour as well. Although at least some of them (of all those lengths) are dual tasks.

    As I'm still grinding tickets to purchase the last of the Krustyland land, and I'm in my game every hour on the hour (crashes permitting), I find it frustrating when Skinner pops up in the middle of the list with his 8-hour sing along task, while I'm assigning everyone else to their 1 hour tasks. Invariably, when I do catch myself in time and scroll to the 30 minute task, I have to tap THAT twice, as if it requires confirmation that I prefer a half hour to 8 hours. What's up with that? :?

    This isn't a big deal for me. Annoying, but the character will soon be free to reset. I'd much rather be able to lock the clean up SF/KL task. Some of my KL debris that was used as design was inadvertently cleaned.

    Yeah, they'd have to find a work around for that issue, but it wouldn't be too difficult. Just send all of the characters who do have the desired duration on task with the one touch button, and then you can send the leftovers on tasks the regular way.

    Yeah, I wish we could choose what they're going to clean up. Even if you try to move stuff so what you want cleaned up to be closest, they still often go elsewhere. It seems to be pretty random.
