It would be nice if there was a confirmation for the queued project to take place after the previous project in that slot completes. There is no confirmation asking if you're sure you want to put that project in waiting while the other is going and after you claim the reward for the previous project the next project switches over without a confirmation. You can switch out projects in waiting while others in the slot(s) are going, but if you don't catch your mistake before you claim the reward for that project slot you're screwed.

The bottom line is that people really do need to learn how to read. It isn't hard to pick the projects you want while ignoring the ones you don't. Without reading the project description first, much less the "Are you sure you want to do this project" window, Cryptic could put in an agreement without you even realizing it. Next thing you know you're abducted, have your face sewn to someone else's rear, and turned into a HUMANCENTiPAD.

Edit: I do agree a way to cancel a project whether or not we contributed to it would be nice.

For example: you have a 2,000 XP project complete and the 800 XP project slotted but nothing contributed yet. The 2k XP project gives you enough to increase your tier. After increasing your tier you want to do another 2k XP project and either a rep store unlock project or a project that rewards a single item but you can only do 1 until you complete that 800 XP project.

Just let me cancel projects I don't want to contribute to anymore. KAPEESH!?!??

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

Lol it's a lost cause my friend.

Our only hope is to familiarize ourselves with the project's title, picture and description so only a glance is enough to slot the right one. Basically do the same thing we do for doff assignments.

I do have a foolproof trick that might be helpful to those that are prone to mistakes. It's not something amazing like oh my gerd I've beat the game. Basically I don't just queue one project, I also queue the one I will be doing tomorrow. The project in the waiting queue can always be switched if a mistake happens. So I just need to worry about the projects that are due the day after. And you have a whole day to realize that you've made a mistake. And they only lock in if you claim the reward of the previous one . It's kind of anal but it has really saved me from wasting resources many times over.
Forum fun murdered. No longer in service.
