Hints at future updates

I can only imagine that a future building/s will fill those slots up

    Actually, I don't really think so, although it gives the developers flexibility. What is interesting is that some new characters don't have all the standard times (1, 4, 8, 12, 24). Take Flanagon - no 24 hour task. Ralph has no 4 hour task. I think they are doing this so it's not possible to set all characters on the same task time to force players to mix it up a bit, which is not necessarily a bad thing.
    What bugs me the most is the removal of tasks for seasonal updates, no one can drink at Flanagon's pub anymore, the ice creamery, El Chemistri, Putt a Lot just to name a few have no tasks.

    I think Flanagan's 4 hour task removal was a mistake. On Android he has a 4 hour and a 24 hour task. So I'm wondering when they removed the temp 4 hour tasks (drinking at the pub) it accidentily removed his permanent one.

    Actually Tom O'Flannigan's 3hr "Visit the Track" job has been changed to a 24hr task since the latest update

    And the devs have added new tasks for existing characters. When the Observatory was released, it gave Professor Frink & Principal Skinner a new 6hr job there as well as giving Martin one since he was released at the same time as the Observatory

    It was changed, then changed back. Didn't know it had been changed again, but I've got him cleaning glasses right now so can't confirm this.

    This either means the developers left in the task for players with Kang, mistakenly left it in, or that Kang will be re-introduced to the game.

    Flanagan's 4 hour task (serve drinks) is still there. People are referring to other characters' task to drink at Flanagan's for 4 hours.
