1: The "new topic" button in this board is non-excisting for me as a new user, using opera web browser - forcing me to post my bug here, plese forgive :)

2: My 1 year old fortress crashes. This crash happends every time 3-4 sec after the last autosave. Used lazy noob pack, and disabling utilities, mods, dfhack etc and changeing graphics does NOT work. I can stay in paused mode forever tho.
I might have to abandon my fortress, but don't want to risk to run into the same problem again with a new one.
I would upload my savefile but I don't know where to find it. In the folder LNP/DF40/data/save there's just one empty folder and one with tons of DATs and txts and graphic images.
While i have decent understanding of PCs, I am a complete noobie to DF so if you wish to help please keep it simple :) Thanks!
Please post the report to http://www.bay12games.com/dwarves/mantisbt/ and upload the file to http://dffd.bay12games.com/. This board is no long used. If you have problems registering, just email Toady.

Edit: Missed where you dont know where to find the save. It is the folder named after your region in Data/save. To upload it you have to compress the folder.

What would be the right place to report a website problem? Here?

I follow the main page rss feed and for a couple of weeks now, the time stamp is wrong. The news come in claiming to be from a month ago, as if the server clock were 30 days behind. I do get the latest articles in a timely manner, they just look old.  None of my other feeds shows this problem, so it seems to be on your end.

One thing I found was in a dwarf description:

"She is almost never sick and agile, but she is XXX."

It should read instead:

"She is agile and almost never sick, but she is XXX."

This isn't the place to report bugs - use the bug tracker instead. (I'm not sure how feasible that word order would be to change, particularly if more than two traits show up.)

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

There are several sticky'd bugs which have been closed; they should be un-sticky'd.

Where do you see those? (I tried searching for resolved issues with sticky issues shown just now, but I couldn't find any.)

Not sure if this is the right place to ask or not, but how can I generate a crash log (like this)?

Making a second post so it's seen:

Is it acceptable to go around adding tags to old reports? Am I helping by categorizing possibly-related issues, or am I cluttering up the page with unnecessary bumps?

Personally, I would prefer that you didn't do that. It looks like you're mostly adding keywords that aren't in the original report (at least the ones I've checked), which is kind of helpful for search purposes (unlike duplicating words that are already in the report), but it mostly tends to clutter up the "recently modified" section.

It's more helpful to link related issues using relationships, which Toady checks sometimes. I've seen people post suggestions for relationships for managers to add as notes on the bug tracker, and I've also gotten some PMs about it. I'm not concerned about posts on the tracker updating the issue, since making changes to relationships would update the issue anyway. Tags seem to link a lot of issues that are only tangentially related, which isn't much more helpful than the existing category field or a search.
