0009327: Cannot order drink at my own fort's inn in adventure mode - tavern keeper claims "I don't work here"
I created an inn in fort mode with all teh stuff it neded (rooms, mugs , alcohol) retired it, and when i ask the tavern keeper about available goods or services they say they "I dont work here" and i cannot order anything or rent a room.
very saddening.
Create a inn with everything in fort mode and go to it in adventure mode find the tavern keeper and try to order something.They will say they "dont work here".

Heres my save.

Probably effect of 0009212, "Performers/Mercenaries stop being listed as citizens after retiring the fort", so s/he was really no more a tavern keeper.

(edited on: 2015-12-13 06:58)
It might be but the individual was not a performer and was one of my starting seven

2015-12-13 07:07   
No, 0009212 affects only those who came as guests. It doesn't affect those who were already citizens.

Hoping an admin acknowledges this.

Don't worry, untrustedlife, there has been just so many reports with new updates so give them few more hours/days. And it is also a weekend close to Christmas, in some parts of world.

I know, guess I'm just annoyed enough by the bug to complain.
(I hope an admin sees this soon)

2015-12-18 14:03   
been six days, still not acknowledged by admin.

I am dissapointed in this bug tracker now.

Been 10 months Maybe I shouldn't even bother reporting bugs if they always get ignored.

Not sure if its been fixed, but unlikely since no one acknowledged this bug so toady would notice

Reminder sent to: untrustedlife

A couple things:

- The bug tracker managers (like myself) are volunteers. We don't always have time to investigate every issue that's reported and mark it as acknowledged/confirmed, but that doesn't mean we're ignoring them.
- Toady will still fix issues that aren't marked as acknowledged/confirmed (really).
- Please don't bump tickets unnecessarily, unless you have useful information to add. In particular, the last two posts you made were after 0.42.06 came out, but before 0.43.01. If the issue wasn't fixed in 0.42.06, it obviously won't be magically fixed in 0.42.06 a month later.

I did just run into 0009361 from a post on Reddit, which led me here. I'll try to reproduce this when I get a chance. Keep in mind that there are lots of bugs on this tracker, and this one is hardly "game-breaking", but Toady will still take time to fix bugs such as this one after the next major release.
2017-06-06 10:52   
I'll admit I've expressed frustration over bugs before. But 90% of my "Toady por QUE" bugs are modding-related, either that or they involve giant desert scorpions. Whereas this is a vanilla-affecting bug with no venomous arthropods in sight.

So frustration's understandable, just remember that the bugtesters here have their hands full, and while they can test bugs and sort through them, only Toady can actually implement any fixes.

Looking at this a bit with DFHack, it appears that the unit's "occupation" is set up correctly - this site has one abstract_buildingst (the tavern), which has 4 occupations assigned, one of which is identical to the occupation referenced by the tavern keeper. This occupation entry appears to have the correct histfig, unit, location, and site IDs, and its type is correct (tavern keeper). I'm not sure what the issue is.

Edit: also, every entry in the global occupations vector has a unique ID.

When reclaiming this fort, the dwarf in question is still listed as the tavern keeper, but is hostile and cannot be unassigned.

2017-12-23 06:43   
I can confirm that this happens in 44.02. Also, where do I volunteer to be a manager?

2017-12-23 15:44   
Usually Toady asks people who have been active around the tracker for a while and know it well to be managers. I don't think we're too overloaded at the moment, but things can slip through the cracks sometimes, like this one. I'm not sure what the situation was in February 2016 when untrustedlife was spamming/bumping this issue.

That's not to say you aren't qualified - I haven't been paying as much attention as I should to people who are especially helpful around the tracker. If you think you're familiar with how DF and its bugs work, as well as Mantis, I'd talk to Toady or another manager you're familiar with.

I would hardly call one bump every month or two months, then 10 months "spamming". And just because i was "spamming" that doesn't mean this bug shouldnt be fixed. Of course i understand why adventure mode bugs tend to take the back burner, good to see this is marked as "confirmed" now though.

2018-05-29 14:21

It is "spamming" when it's the only activity in the issue. Your "bump" posts only serve to irritate people who rely on the "recently modified" list having issues with actually useful recent modifications. And in any case, I certainly never said it shouldn't be fixed, and adventure mode bugs in general are not prioritized any differently than fortress mode bugs, regardless of how individual bugs like this one may appear to be.

And again, an issue can be fixed without being acknowledged/confirmed.
