As much fun as the quests are, are the goals that staff is setting actually realistic? IMO, they're not. Stalker Status quest set was quite hard, I think that we ended up having less than 100 people finish it and now we have the Super Quest set. The goal is 1,500 people by the 20th and we're less than a third of the way there with four days to go. I think that a more realistic goal would be maybe 750 or even 1000. I just think that 1500 might be pushing it, especially for quest sets like the Stalker Status one, I think a more realistic goal for that would have been around 500. 
 
EDIT: I'm going to start keeping track of those goals and the actual number reached, starting with the All in the Family set.

I agree 500 does sound like a good number

  It would probably be easier if more people quested consistently.  Some people don't quest so the goals don't seem to take that into consideration.  500 would be great... and I would have a lot of extra exp >.>... not including the Stalker Status one.... still trying to finish it.

What's really tough is trying to do the same quests across all the different sites, that is if you're on every site and into doing it on all of them.

I agree. 1500 users is way too much. 500 or 600 users would be a lot better. And to think that this an easy quest.

I don't quest. Seems like an extremely time-consuming thing to do...and to what end? I brouse around and if I see something I want to chime in on, I do. And my level keeps going up...and I don't care. I just don't get it.

@Amegashita: Google failed in the helping find a third place for Superman. So I kind of stopped on that stuff. The hints were getting me no where fast.

If nothing else, go to the thread for the Quest you're having trouble with and look for people's hints

Two days to go and we're a little over a third of the way there. It's not going to happen unless Sha completes it on all of her accounts and even then............

The goals are just silly. We are never going to get more then 700 on the easiest quest set.

Deadline is up in 2 hours 45 minutes and not even half enough people have completed this quest set. >_<

I don't think so. If it was for 700 users instead of 1500 users I think it would have been completed. They just need to lower their expectations.

if it's a comic book knowledge quest then I'll do it just to test myself but quests like the Stalker one don't interest me in the least...I even said that I wasn't going to do it in the quest thread and I still had a bunch of people writing on my wall.....I guess my point is that if I've never talked to you on here then I'm not going to just randomly follow you or write on your wall to complete a quest that gives me no physical reward

To be honest, I like the Stalker Quest, more than I thought I would. But as it is with community quests, not a lot of people did it.

Yes. I f****** hated having to talk to so many people. I almost didn't want to do it out of spite.
