You can get to a list of issues with a specific tag, and can attach tags to all of them at once from there, then delete the tag you don't want. (Try to avoid deleting tags that still have issues attached without replacing them with another tag, unless the tags are useless, like "Toady please fix this now!".)

"Potentially unhandled duplicates" is a filter someone made, possibly me, and it's possibly only visible to managers. I know you have to be logged in to save filters, and you might need to be a manager to make saved filters "public" and visible to others (or other managers?) like that.

There was a typo in the siegers' campfire code. When the fires went out, so did the game.

I can't find anything on Mantis! Am I using the wrong keywords? I'm trying to see if the bug I'm experiencing is just me or has someone else reported it, but I don't seem to be able to browse the problems, or narrow them down. In the newest version (44.02) the game doesn't see some items in the stockpiles - for example I had a whole bin full of paper sheets but the craftsdrwarf shop had the 'make quire' job red as if there were no sheets available. Similar with hives - had 10 in bins, but couldn't build any. Searching for 'stockpiles' on Mantis doesn't bring up anything though.

Am I doing something wrong?

You need to log in to search. Looks like a bug. That's pretty meta, I must say.

Mostly phone-posting, sorry for any typos or autocorrect hijinks.

No, you just need to clear the current filter before searching.

Iíve just noticed that the images in the OP at the start of the thread donít work.  They may need to be rehosted.

I can't report a bug. Every time I try, I get "Invalid form security token. Did you submit the form twice by accident?" from Mantis.
I'm logged in and I don't see any sort of captcha. My adblocker and anti-tracker are both disabled, so they can't be interefering.

So I guess we need a bug tracker for the bug tracker, huh.

Can you try using this link? https://www.bay12games.com/dwarves/mantisbt/

Sometimes leaving off the "www." or using HTTP instead of HTTPS can cause issues like that.

Is Mantis still the place to report bugs, or is there a new platform/method in use for the Steam release?  I have a crash that was listed as "fixed" by Toady in 2019 but it seems to have crept back in with the new version (i.e., crashing with errorlog.txt just spamming "Midmap effective coordinate check out of bounds")

I'm new to succession forts in general, yes, but do all forts designed by multiple overseers inevitably degenerate into a body-filled labyrinth of chaos and despair like this? Or is this just a Battlefailed thing?

There isn't much middle ground between killed-by-dragon and never-seen-by-dragon.

They've got a couple of bug channels on the KitfoxGames discord, that seems to be to current place.

No idea if anyone who can actually fix the bugs reads it, though...

If the only similarity is what is logged in errorlog.txt, then the crash likely has a different cause. errorlog.txt is only really helpful for identifying certain modding-related errors, as opposed to crashes.

They do (see 50.02, for instance), but some things take time to fix.

When I try to create an account on mantis it says "Invalid form security token. Did you submit the form twice by accident?" so I will just mention it here since coupled with the forum waiting time to create an account I have been trying too long just to post a bug haha.

If someone else wants to post it on there feel free:
On the steam version, when embarking in an untamed wilds biome, zombie and howling wind ambience plays. This is unrelated to the evil biome as I tested it multiple times on untamed wild biomes on different maps. Some other people have also complained about it.
