comment When are dead bodies discovered?
To clarify: is it necessary for an NPC to see a body for the alarm to be raised?

comment How can I avoid fish/deer extinction?
Is this decrease in productivity permenant, or does it recover if you stop work at one of the overlapping docks?

comment How can I avoid fish/deer extinction?
Does that mean if you have two overlapping fishing docks at the "top" of the river, it affects a (non-overlapped) fishing dock at the "bottom" of the river?

comment What could cause a string of murders with no witnesses?
Also, if you wall them in, they make your Fortress more or less invincible (because they never die of old age, thirst or hunger - even if the rest of your Fort is wiped out, new migrants will show up eventually)

comment How do I create a cell block so I can search the whole block at once?
Short answer: I don't think you can. Longer answer: I think cells need to be physically next to each other (inside the same building - not necessarily sharing adjoining walls, but that's a good way of designing them) to count as a cellblock.

comment How to remove “Backward Monarch”?
Just guessing I'm afraid - I couldn't find anything relating to your problem in the wiki (although I haven't looked at the manual yet), and it takes some time to test in game. I've made the answer community wiki so its easier for people to change if they can provide proof one way or the other.

comment How to incorporate individual cells into existing cell blocks?
Hi @MrMANI and welcome to StackExchange! Can you post a screenshot of your two cellblocks? That would help us solve the problem.

comment How do I get dwarves to be sane about their armor?
Speaking of which, I wouldn't set them to replace their clothes - they can normally just put the armour over the top. That way if you don't have enough full sets of armour to go around your militia, they'll at lest be decent. Or as decent as dwarves ever are...

comment Where to hide the nuke disk
Its true - personally I find that being a target makes the round more interesting for me (and hopefully everyone else). But it's partly down to personal preference as well

comment Escape the Toxins Airlock (SS13)
YMMV, but depending on the server I think this is a long-standing bug. Short of dismantling the door (or an adjacent wall) I'm not sure what to suggest.
