"D for dwarf" section not funny[edit]

The D for Dwarf section of the article does not say anything that has not already been said in the article, nor, imo, is it very funny. Should it be removed? --Calculator 01:22, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

I think it's a real chance for good dwarfy humour, after all, this is certainly something worth making fun of. Just let it be noted that anybody who thinks they can spruce up the D for Dwarf paragraph into something legitimately humourous is welcome to make their addition. J 21:39, 28 September 2010 (UTC)
It really is just an unfunny re-iteration of what the article already says. You might as well take it out and just put the D for dwarf at the top of the page. --Bporgn 23:30, 20 January 2011 (UTC)

"Any (dis)advantages of making friends?"[edit]

Are there any? A dwarf will make an unhappy thought if a friend of his dies. Maybe enough to cause havoc. On other hand, can making friends improve the chances of new babies? --Trepach 02:48, 08 Dec 2010 (UTC)

This is a good question, I don't even think my dwarves are liable to become unhappy in the first place if it weren't for making friends at parties, is there even a good reason to create meeting halls? Even with only small amounts of partying, even one person dying can easily mean a tantrum spiral in my 100 population fort. --Bporgn 23:28, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

It depends on your circumstances. "Made a friend recently" and "talked with a friend recently" are both good, if minor, thoughts. They're useful for offsetting a low-grade bad thought, like "tired of the same old food/booze" or "accosted by terrible vermin". So if your fort is running smoothly enough that minor complaints like that don't arise, but you tend to lose a dwarf to ambushes/sieges every so often, then avoiding friendmaking is a good thing. On the other hand, if you're new and have INVADERS:NO, or you button up to ride out sieges without casualties, then friendships might keep your dwarves from going nuts over the endless diet of plump helmets. --DeMatt 23:50, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

You're not kidding.[edit]

My miner was digging out some new bedrooms (I turned my original dormitory into separate bedrooms, but the migrants claimed all the beds), and suddenly, my planter threw a party. My miner is sitting there, doing nothing, and all my dwarves are sleeping in the food stockpile.
