    Caught up with my negative tasks a couple days ago, although no end in sight for poor Akira re-potting the same Bonsai...

    I have a task for Rev. Lovejoy to give a sermon but it shows -19/1 for the counter. Any word on a fix?

    Without wanting to give false hope to everyone, I think there may be light at the end of the tunnel..... I had the negative task thing in both of my towns but during the course of the day both towns have had these tasks (and other random ones) auto-complete. Sadly I have no idea what magic I used to make this happen (the only thing I can think of is that I was swearing a lot.....), so have nothing useful to pass on. Sorry.

    Of course, they could come back as mysteriously as they disappeared :(

    Same here-been in and out of the game all day-just been in to find my Reverend Lovejoy task which was at -161 has auto completed. I also had a pregnant Brandine who had just less than 10 days to go on her 2nd spuckler and that has auto completed too so I now have Dubya. The odd thing with that is when I clicked on her to complete the random monorail task it tells me she still has just under 10 days to go on her pregnancy. Here's hoping this means I'll have my 3rd Spuckler in 10 days!

    Plenty of people, including myself, have this same glitch with a variety of characters. There's a sticky on it at the top. Just ignore it. :)

    A patch must have been rolled out as GKW in my town no longer has his negative task count

    no patch (at least for me) yet.... still have Marge in the task list for -85 protests; but at least I'm not forced to do them, so whenever they get around to fixing it is fine with me... not hurting anything

    No patch for me either but its only a random task so I don't mind too much

    Edit: also what's GKW?
