  1. Hi there! Love the list, but I noticed a mistake: on Harv's island you can donate to more than one gyroid per day, there isn't a once a day limit. I was able to donate to all of them, so I would double check that!

    1. You can only -pay off- one gyroid per day. Once you've completed a donation goal they stop taking donations for the day. As long as you don't complete the goal you can continue to donate to others.

  2. The list says we can refuse a DIY from villagers but mine still force DIYS on me :’(
