Summary0002214: Wrong pronoun use in combat logs
DescriptionThere is still at least one case where the adventure mode "you" is being used to describe combat in fortress mode: "You vomit".

The vomiting dwarf was actually my manager. He was NOT the first in my view-list of dwarves, though it's possible he may be the dwarf who has been here longest.

I seem to recall this bug being picked up before any of the 2010 releases, in the sample arena mode dialogues that Toady posted.
Steps To ReproduceI've not noticed this happen anywhere else, so I'm not sure why it happens to my manager. Unfortunately he was unconscious at the time, so I don't know whether it was only the vomit text being effected, or all his combat messages.

I've not noticed this happen anywhere else, so I'm not sure why it happens to my manager.

He's Dwarf #0 in the fortress, just like adventurers are Creature #0 in their little bubbles of gameplay. At least I think that's the cause. Anyway, good catch.

I caught all of the cases of this I could find for 0.31.11. There were 52 of them. For that reason, I won't say I caught them all! Please report any others that pop up.
