Is this weakness with tasks?

I have a tasks table which has sequential dependency.  So the first task is what is driving others as being predecessor.  I can mark my tasks as complete with a finish date but not quite  the first one as it comes with the following error.  Am I not supposed to modify this and if I cannot how do I ensure that I hide this from users' view?

It looks from your screen shot like you are trying to make this task a predecessor of itself, thereby creating a circular reference. The first task of a project shouldn't have any predecessors. At least that's the way we do it in our project-task app.

Thanks for the feedback. No it has successors. And siomeone was trying to change the date whioch is coming from the parent project table.  May be I should ake it read only.
