I've designated a stockpile specifically for unsmelted ores and metal bars by my smith station... nobody even tries to fill it up. Even with 3 wheelbarrows assigned to it. I wonder why this is...

Did you acidentally set it to only take from links? That's very easy to do. Select it with 'q' and see if it says:

a: Will take from links only

or

a: Will take from anywhere

Have them killed. Nothing solves a problem quite as effectively as simply having it killed.

It's much too easy. I can't count how many times I did it myself. I press q to enter workshop menu, then a to add task, and I see that I accidentally entered stockpile. Then quickly and subconsciously ESC, like after every interface mistake, and repeat it for actual shop, while stockpile remains changed. And after a while I'm surprised the logistic chain doesn't work. That's because I have stockpiles all over, practically around each shop.

Well, at least that was happening until I changed the key under [BIND:BUILDJOB_STOCKPILE_LINK_ANYWHERE:REPEAT_NOT] from ato A in interface.txt.

Reading his name would trigger it. Thinking of him would trigger it. No other circumstances would trigger it- it was strictly related to the concept of Bill Clinton entering the conscious mind.

After Urist McArchitect is done hauling all the materials himself by hand and finishes designing it.

Why won't Urist McHauler help haul the materials?

It pairs well with the cheese engravings. (Want some more cheese with your whine? Just pull that unsuspicious lever over there.)

A dwarf in one of my military squads died in combat with an FB. Why was he not "found dead" until a week after he was deposited in the corpse stockpile?

Armok is present in all creatures which have functional arms.

Instinct, but then they realize that the dwarves might mistake their unhatched offspring for food if they lay them there.

Why do dwarves pop out babies while walking around instead of at a bed (or nest box?)

Because they didn't know they were going to make a babby. Seriously, they just come out of nowhere, no warning.

Why do dwarves like to pray so damn much?
