    i have on my list instructions to go to soltown and give stanley edvard's notes. already done, but i got the quest again from a different starting scene, so i'm never gonna be able to clear this. i also have barkley's letter on the list, and as i've completed that and didn't get a task clear for it (and i'm not the only one) i'm never gonna be able to clear this either. i wasn't too annoyed with having them permanently in my journal with no way to fix it, but having them always in my face with no way to fix it is a bit much.

    I would like the option of removing that from my screen. It is unnecessary clutter.

    Removing it from your screen will be an option before release.

    Remember that this is a VERY EARLY release. This feature is not yet finished. Please do not report any bugs regarding it.

    There will be an option this release from a town crier to reset your current tasks (you can still perform them, they just won't show up as current).

    Still, such an task list is an very good idea, expecially for newcomers.

    @Lum

    One of the things that I noticed on this is that it is on the left side of the screen, below the character. However, when you party with someone, the whole "window" of task lists shift to the right. Depending on your tasks, this could conceivably take up a huge section on your screen.

    Would it be possible to have it a movable window, similar to inventory and chat box?

    No, because it's designed as part of the new user experience to be lightweight. If you have 30 tasks you should probably complete some at some point. There will also be the option to turn it off.

    You can assign a hot-key to toggle the task list.

    After discussion with the team, we agree there are elements of the new task list we would like to improve to both clean up obfuscated information as well as add manual control to which tasks are or are not "active".

    Reference IDs: 43128 and 43130

    Thank you all for the feedback!

    I think the problem @Alley Oop has is the same one I have - I have completed most of the tasks that are on my task list. I've been all the way through and spoken to Sequanna, got the item (though not the XP). However my task list features things I've already done like "Ask Min Liang Tan about the Empress Ring" and "Find a way to reach Sequanna".

    I know LB said (in answer to my question) at the telethon that the quest reset thing would be a one off for everyone but I again urge Port to reconsider so we can test stuff like this without having things in an obviously broken state.

    As I said, we're going to have town criers this release have a command that will reset your task list - you will still have them in your journal and be able to complete them but they won't be flagged "active". It isn't on QA yet but should be by Monday.

    @Lum the Mad As I said, I have already completed many of these tasks, they shouldn't be in my journal either, active or otherwise.
