You didn't give yourself an advantage - in fact, you did the opposite. No harm no foul I say.

If you're worried about how calm you were about doing it, remember that you maintained self control and fixed the problem. You've no reason to be hard on yourself .

It's a good way to get rid of friends who take games too seriously :P
The problem never is that some people take games "too seriously", but rather the seriousness taken isn't consistent among the whole group. It's just as bad to have a clown amidst a group of hardcore players as it is to have a munchkin in a group of laid-back roleplayers.

But the optimist sees injustice as something discordant and unexpected, and it stings him into action.

Yeah, but it's more that it's a game between friends, involving money, and based entirely on trust. Which I am the host for.

Also there was such a massive awkward silence afterwards, too...

The original writer is laughing that they're getting attention for it.

I'm sad because Toady won't spend a bit of time fixing the more glaring UI issues. I understand he doesn't want to make a change that'll just be nullified in future versions, but doing something like consolidating the commands, so that Escape always goes back one page, space always pauses/unpauses, enter always selects, etc? Adding a Dwarf Therapist style labour screen and/or Gnomoria-style professions (letting you make a "Metalworker" profession that has all the metal-working labours, and just telling a Dwarf "You're a metalworker now." and he has those labours)? Adding the DFHack Search function to screens? Letting you select a material to build constructions with, even if you don't have that material on hand, a la DFHack planning mode?

Those don't seem like things that would be nullified in the future, and would make playing the vanilla game so much better. I'm sure one could think of further changes like that, of course.

We used to have this, and it was horribly inefficient. The professions got split up so you can tell someone to do either weaponsmithing OR armorsmithing, before they'd do either/or with the same profession, with about 0 usefulness without being manager-screen-babysitting your smiths/etc.

And you can do exactly this anyway, right now, by pressing shift+enter on a profession category to toggle all of the jobs under the category.

Unless you mean creating your own professions somehow like Therapist and being able to hot-swap them on people, which would be entirely new and likely a different layer of UI to fight through.

AFAIK 'Esc' is universal usage, things like '+' and '-' and the number key scrolling should be universal or moved to pageup/pagedown. All in all it's still a pretty big clusterfuck of a task just to do that, though, which makes me have sympathy when Toady says he'll "work on it", and makes me appreciate all the 3rd party developers having a swipe at UI stuff.
