One of my dwarfs lost both her arms in a valiant effort to defend the fortress.

Although I'm grateful for her effort, I now get spammed with messages saying "cancels Stored Owned Item: Too injured. Is there anyway from stopping her trying to store items?

    Every time I see a question like this about dwarf-fortress I think "wow, d.f. is deep, there are 'dwarfs with no arms' in it too!" Nov 21, 2011 at 19:47

    That's exactly how I started playing, after seeing questions being asked here. Extremely steep learning curve, but well worth it.

Kill her or try to suppress the announcements.

I suppose you already deactivated hauling labors so that won't work.

  • I went with killing her in the end. Turning of hauling labors didn't work as she still tried to store her own items.

I suppose you could just turn off all manual labor jobs. I guess that would be an opportunity to create the most socially adept dwarf ever.

Take away that dwarf's bedroom. There will be no place to store a personal item then.
