I'll have to take your word for it on "almost 200", as the dashboard
only shows me 63.

For those I can see, quality of the tasks is a problem.

Several of them make no sense or are for already completed work.

Yet all I can do is change the description or the instance count.  I
don't even know who made the tasks.

The tasks need better review before they are published.  There's
nothing so demoralising for a student to realise they are being
misguided into wasting their time.
