Summary0004895: Two diplomats at once
DescriptionThe dwarven liaison arrived, simultaneously with the dwarven caravan (as per current behavior). However, shortly after (a couple days, I think), the *human* diplomat arrives too.

The liaison went through the Conduct Meeting sequence with the mayor as per normal. The diplomat just wandered around, mostly back and forth between my meeting areas, never to the area of the mayors office. Worried that this might end with human diplomacy in tatters, I chained the mayor to his desk (via warren) and kept a close eye on his progress with the liaison.

After what seemed like an unusually long meeting (possibly for an unrelated reason - I made a long list of orders (40-50 items), and that step of the negotiations took most of the time), the liaison meeting finally finished up, and, probably a month after he arrived, the human was able to start his meeting, which fortunately finished quickly.
Steps To Reproduceyou got me..
Additional InformationPossibly related, or the root cause: The previous season, the human caravan arrived, and got no more than 10-15 steps before a large siege rolled in behind (and over) them. Current behavior is that the diplomat arrives a bit before or after the caravan; perhaps an ongoing siege causes the diplomat to reschedule to the next season? (in other words, possibly intended behavior).

However, I haven't been able to find anything here or elsewhere online that indicates two diplomats (or dip/liai) arriving at once is something expected, so reporting it as possible bug.

Also, my duke was available and idle most of the time, but was not approached by either representative (consistent with, [^] but worth noting that that bug still applies even with multiple meetings in the mayor's queue)

Have save if needed.

There's nothing unusual about having multiple diplomats at the fortress at the same time. Back in 40d and earlier, it was quite common - if the diplomat's arrival was preempted by a siege, (s)he'd arrive during the next season, possibly at the same time as the diplomat from another civilization.

In that case, feel free (managers) to close this as intended behavior. It is however worth noting that the wiki (and nothing else online that I've been able to find) makes no mention of this (edit: "this" meaning, sieges rescheduling diplomats), not even the 40d or 23a pages.

While the catalyst may be different, the root cause of meeting scheduling is the same as 0003027.
