Prev1
The list is in alphabetical order, so it's got that going for it. :)

    Groups are not necessary. I know the alphabet, thanks to sesame street :D.
    I would be happy if
    a) it shows how long a task still takes
    b) if I could give tasks without tapping on the character
    I'm just 27 with a few Premiumcharacters and it keeps me busy already. I think on 41 it will take very long.

    The characters are in alphabetical order(it scrolls fast) and the decorations are in order of level requirement(makes sense).

    Alphabetical makes it pretty easy to find stuff. I want Krusty, I look at K. I want Skinner, I look at S. Etcetera.

    decorations are not organised well at all it's stupid having to scroll thru a whole page to find a tree then scroll back to find something else.

    Agreed. It could not be organized any simpler than this.

    Agreed. I like the alphabetical listing for characters. Makes them very simple to find. :thumbup:

    Alpha organization is good with me, too. But if you're going to further sort, for me the most relavent categories would be: 1.) waiting for something to do, 2.) performing a task, and 3.) completed a task but still running around with a yellow thumbs-up because you missed me on your first pass through town. Although not necessarily in that order.

    HAH! So True. I can't see how much easier it could get, really...

    Maybe a voice recognition thing where you say out loud "I want Krusty" and it gives you Krusty.


    ...That started off as satire, but that actually sounds kinda good.

    Any other organisational method would make it harder to find somebody

    Only change I can think of it separate those on task from those who are idle

    You can jump to the letter? Woah, I'm impressed :shock:

    Damned if I can find Etcetera tho :?

    The town census literally cannot be more organized than this.

    Putting it into groups that should be long together would only make it less organized.

    The decorations menu is a bit of a ness but with the smoother scrolling... It's fine as it is if you ask me!

    The smooth scrolling is a godsend.

    Isn't alphabetical order far better than having to remember or work out which category someone would be in?

    It's in alphabetical order and it scrolls quickly and smoothly - how would any other system be an improvement?

    I like what you said about showing the time left for tasks. As far as organization, Maybe they can put the alphabet on the right side of the menu so you can tap the letter. That would at least bring you closer to the character you are looking for. Too many submenus makes it a hassle to search for things.

    I like the alphabetical listing. It would be nice if they could somehow color code by status (idle, on task, finished task) ... They apparently can do the color coding already, because when I look at the census and someone is in Krustyland, the font/button is yellow. (Which is awesome!) From that, I assume (perhaps incorrectly) that it would be possible to employ other colors.

    I just reached 100. :oops:

    (No wonder the character finder made things speed up so much!)
