Why sometimes one task, sometimes 3 or 4?

Sometimes I can do just one task in a term, other times 2 or 3 or even 4.
Why is this?

Once I couldn't do any tasks. logged in for several days, kept seeing the "No further tasks may be done this quarter" message, then finally at the next click it appeared I had missed a quarter and nothing was decided. That's a separate issue, I think, unless somehow they are both related to regent "influence"

I don`t think this has to do something with influence. My influence is rising and rising, but I see no influence on the number of tasks. Now my influence is higher than ever before, but I even can't solve enough tasks, to do at least the "extrem high" ones.

exactly. how are you supposed to take care of all these tasks? or is that supposed to be part of the realism?

half the time I can't even tell what a task is before clicking on it. Last one was "Pick a name, any name" but it was high urgency. Oh and "Tabloids" and "Melanite." All three are high urgency but I can only chooses one to do and I have no idea what they are even.

Then you complete a task, look forward to doing one of the others that have been sitting there then suddenly there is a new one, high urgency, about parking meters or something like that.

Hi,
the number of tasks you are able to do is assigned by a random generator. This is why it changes how muck tasks you can do a quarter. Usually you get five or six tasks a year. You can wait until winter to do your tasks. But next spring they will be expired - not the tasks only the number of possibilities to do them. There is no relationship between your influence and the number of tasks you are able to do a quarter.

By the way, this all you could have read here at the forum if you only had used the search function.

RE: Why sometimes one task, sometimes 3 or 4?

I could have searched but the forum and site interface is pretty clunky. It was a time saver for me to post a question. By doing so I connected with another user who was having similar problems. And now you have a better sense of how many people are inquiring about this.

So while I'm typing this before I head off to my commute, instead of going to the search section and sifting thru the results, maybe finding one related that I will have to type my own clarification to and hope someone reads an old post, I'm going to type another related question: in the regent section there is a list of tasks that I acted upon. Some get listed while some get replaced with asterisks.

Quarter 25 toenail clippers
poTAYto or poTAHto?

Q24 *****

Q23 breezy
the moon
electricity

I know I did tasks in q24 for example and I know the simulator acted upon them. I acted on the task "parks" in q24 for example, and there are reports of changes in the park system. But why is the record of the action replaced by ***** ?

The full range of features you get as a Premium or VIP User. As long as you have a membership for free you have to live with this restrictiveness - and others, too.

I can understand that I don't get good graphs etc while being a basic member. That's fair enough. It's a lot of work to keep a site like this going, you're providing a service and running a business.

But I'm not sure some of the methods employed like this are really the way to go. It's kind of like not letting basic members use punctuation or the letter "e" and replacing certain letter with random spaces.
