I've got all my characters on 24hr tasks and brewing moonshine, have been for the past 3days, until the next update I don't have to get anything, Im not buying anymore land so it pointless doing hour tasks etc

That's a lot of Moonshine. I've got my crew on full 24 hour shifts too. Except Grandpa, he's either napping or feeding birds. Oh and I'm still cramming for coins all the Simpson's and Ned are on high frequency Chrisrtmas tasks.
I've got the. Simpsons & ned Santa coin collecting shoulda mentioned that before, gotta try and get as many as poss till it all over but everyone else is 24hr just don't see the point in logging in every hour at the moment.
Most of my characters are doing jobs that requires them being outside. I like looking at them.
It's kind of fun seeing your town bustling with activity when you don't really need to have people doing tasks to progress the game between level updates.
I know! <fanning self>
And it still reminds me of the Master of Your Domain episode of Seinfeld.
And I still don't get it. What are we accomplishing here?

Ahhh dear spiffshine step this way and into the wonderful world of slow tapping. First let me ask you a few questions: are you maxed out on XP? Have a large bank balance but nothing to spend it on? When a new update arrives do you find that you have completed all your quests and have all your buildings finished long before the update ends? Do you hark for a simpler and more honest time when you had to work hard and every penny counted? At the end of each day you counted your cash and had to make decisions, should I buy more land, start a construction project or invest in decoration? Did this time give you a greater sense of accomplishment?
If this is you then adhering to the slow tapping guide will allow you to access the enjoyment and total TSTO experience that you received when you first began playing.
If it is not you then you will find the exit on your left...
Corn growing is still a bit much for slowing things down. Cut it to 30 and I'll plant some.
Easy, my hot blooded Peruvian friend, let's not show anyone the exit just yet. Especially such an esteemed guest as Spiff. Let's try to invite some discourse here. This is a forum after all. (Unless you were trying to fire up readers. As so many of the popular threads do. In that case well played).
My dear Spiff, you've hit it exactly. What are we accomplishing here?
If this game has a value in the real world, I for one would love to here about it. Is it resume worthy? Will it help me reduce debt? (quite the opposite, I'm afraid). Tapped Out is a time suck vortex, slow tapping is just a way to enjoy the ride. Maybe more to the point, it's a way to extend the ride.
Slow Tapping is to the journey as regular, or rushed play is to the destination.
Okay, well I'm off to join Otto on the bus. Anyone else?
Ah. The problem of conveying oneself with just the written word. One simply meant that if this is not how you wish to play your game then slow tapping is not for you.
Sorry, what are you talking about?
It's incredibly pleasing.
