    I've got Flanders power walk task at -214/1 too. It happened during the update. Glad I never had any other tasks going at the time

    well, when I first saw Apu's tasks, I was shocked!
    but then I did some math and realized it was not that bad at all!

    Praying to Garnesh 1.260 times is only:

    - 56.700 seconds (okay, anything in the thousands sounds allot)
    - 945 minutes (see? That sounds slightly better!)
    - 15,75 hours (not even a day!)
    - 0,66 days (anything below 1 can't be that long)
    - 0,09 weeks (that would be like watching "The Simpsons Movie" NOT EVEN 11 times in a row)
    - 0,02 months (pregnancy takes 40 month, which is 2000x longer btw)
    - 0,0018 years (0,0...that's sounds like piece of pie!)

    EDIT: reading my own post, I just have the feeling that the math about pregnancy isn't that accurate.

    based on the past as soon as task is done it should reset. This happened before a long time ago.

    This didn't happen for me. My snake task went from -144/1 to -143/1. I hope this gets fixed soon or I won't be able to continue with the next quest line

    for me its 2 task, Kent Brockman 24 hour task, was almost finished now I have to wait another 24 hours to finish it.

    and the task that sends all the kids, skinner and krabbapple to detention, Nelson is -2/3, Krabbapple is -2/2, when she had already done 1 of the 2 required.

    Never mind, just checked Reddit and this one seems to be a common glitch for all sorts of tasks.

    A lot of people have a version of that glitch. In my town it's Frink. Some people have Willie or Quimby.

    Here is a link to another thread, in which people have discussed the issue, for those who would like to see the conversation:

    (Link previously provided no longer relevant).

    EDIT: you may want to post your issue in that thread as Neuroheart was gathering info on this. I believe she said that the matter is being looked into and will update people when she has any information to give.

    EDIT: the above link is now obsolete as the threads have been merged.

    I have -85 with Marge to protest something.... nothing like a month worth of protests to keep her busy (course, she gets left out of the events most times, so at least she'll have something to do) :lol:

    Several threads already exist about this very problem. They'll probably patch it soon. In the meantime, just ignore it.

    Already several threads about this. It's a widespread issue. Just ignore the quest.

    ^Good advice.

    Some have talked to EA and been told 24/48 hours for the fix. I hope that's coming.
