Farmville's Helping Hands stuck task

Magivol2Magivol2 Delightful DucklingPosts: 43Registered User Grasshopper

One of my 2 mentor tasks on the Farmville Helping Hands is to harvest 2 pumpkins. Yes, it said TWO and I chose it. However, I have harvested at least 10 pumpkins now and it still says 0/2 for the task. I have reloaded the game and it did not change. I'm a little annoyed, not so much at not being able to get credit for it, but because it has now locked up one of my task spots and I can't get rid of it. I don't know why such a small task was there to begin with but it was so I chose it because I had pumpkins to harvest anyway. But, now it won't go complete and go away. And, I even considered that maybe I needed to plant the pumpkins AFTER choosing the task so I planted two more, watered, and then used speed-grow, and harvested. But, still it didn't complete. How do I get it to go away so I can complete other tasks?

    This helping hands quest has been buggy and more for many that have it and those that have it but has not opened yet.

    If you cleared your cache and more and still there you could try support but I don't know if they remove these on this or not

    But as said this has been a buggy item/mission that may be permanent on our farms

    Did you fertlise? it might be wanting PRIZED pumpkins, in which case you will have to fertilise them also. The drop rate for prized crops can be dire when there is a quest asking for Prized goods, and unfortunately it is random... In a recent quest I think I harvested about 20 level five fertilised fields and got about five prized items.. :|

    You may have already thought of this but could it be asking for two prized pumpkins? I have seen people ask for one or two of something and I'm always puzzled but I have done some of them without any problem. I hope you can get this fixed because I'm sure it's very annoying.

    I've had similar issues a few times. At least three times, I've picked post items to collect. After collecting more than the five needed (and also getting clicks on mine), they just won't complete. On one of them I counted eight collected items just through my own clicks and I just couldn't get past 4/5. Now I have a task to perform 15 neighbor tasks and after performing 70, I still have 0/15. Some of these things just don't work. I feel bad taking a task from someone and not being able to complete it, but I just don't know how to make it work and I'm certainly not paying to do it!

    I have a 15 Neighbour task too, I have visited five farms now and even used the HUGS, and it is still 0/15. Poor farmer who is waiting for it to be completed, So Sorry!!

    I have not been able to ask for help for the last few days, i've had plenty of points.

    I had a task to harvest 9 pumpkins but it really meant prized pumpkins even though it didn't say prized.

    As far as I remember quite a few of the Helping Hands task required 'priced' crops, even that it did not say so. If the amount is relatively small it is probably priced ones. Regarding Neighbor help, I suggest that you reset game and try again.

    I can't open Kitty Lunch task on Helping tasks quest and I can't get it out of the Mentor box to replace it. I am playing with the handicap of 1 box so may not be able to complete game in time. How do I remove it so I can switch to a task that will open? it says you need level 40 to do; I am at level 217.

  • bbpiratebbpirate Loose Cannon Posts: 551Registered User Goldsmith

    Greycinder, this is obviously a "glitch". One of my co-op members has the Kitty Lunch as a shared order item, and I also cannot open it to craft (even though it says level 40 needed and I'm way above that! I'd suggest contacting support and asking them to remove it or push it through for you.

    Well I didn't know that I wouldn't be able to visit a person's farm to perform 10 actions. I'm not sure how are suppose to know what tasks you can or can't do beforehand. I'm telling support to complete it for me or I want to be repaid 8 fbs to complete it.

    My progress on this task just went back to the beginning. I was almost done with goal 3 and progress seems to be lost.
    It seems like this task might have fixed itself.

    I've posted this in Discussions also as I'm not getting any help for my items as they are stuck on an expired quest, and no new items appearing. Just made the same mistake with 6 potatoes, as it didn't indicate prized goods. I wouldn't have grown an item that takes so long to grow if I didn't benefit myself, so poor game play Zynga!
