    Issue With Task Dumping

    I have a co-leader who dumped tasks before doing them and was penalized by his tasks being limited. He even had to buy one of his tasks. When I ( leader) dumped tasks, it did not affect my numbers of tasks.

    Your co-leader is doing it wrong. They are *starting* the task, then *dumping* it. Doing it that way counts as a *failed task* and gives them 0 points.

    Dump *before* Starting which is probably how you are doing it and why it doesn't affect your number of tasks.

    To expand on cdosr's comment, here's how I explained it to my Co-op:

    ❌ Method 1: ALL PLAYERS: Dumping a task after accepting it. Dumping a task after accepting it means that you are giving up the option to complete that task. It marks the task with a red X on your list of completed tasks. If you have a potential of 15 tasks and accept and dump one, that means you now have a potential of 14 tasks. In Aphrodite's Piers, we highly discourage this method as you run the risk of not being able to complete your minimum tasks if too many are dumped and you also forfeit the potential points from dumped tasks for that regatta.

    ​✅ Method 2: ELDERS AND LEADERS: Dumping a task straight from the Task Journal without accepting it. This can be done by Elders, Co-Leaders, and Leaders only. Dumping a task before accepting it means that it doesn't count toward your total task count. So far, dumping tasks with either method does not affect the Co-op's regatta score, but Method 2 does affect the Global Leaderboard position. Since our Co-op has not prioritized the GLB, we will continue to not concern ourselves with task dump counts. However, in Aphrodite's Piers, Elders dump only tasks below the minimum point threshold; in order to reduce confusion, Leaders will monitor the Task Journal for other tasks that can be cleared.
    It's worth noting that the second method does NOT affect your weekly regatta score but it will affect your Global Leaderboard ranking. (See this post by cdosr). Also, dumping tasks with either method will remove them from the board for all players as the task board is shared.
