How is 8 coconuts easy? The island is a 4.5 hour round trip! I refuse to take mystery tasks after getting stuck with a 15 hour growing task last year. I have offered to be on the firing squad of whoever came up with ? tasks -- the offer is still open.

As to crate tasks. It only counts if the person with the crate task fills it, but that includes filling crates for friends -- so fill others' crates, get a clover and credit toward your task.
