0010354: Missing text during performances
When somebody comments on my performances while they are happening, their text is blank; all I see is "Whatshisname: "

When somebody joins me in a performance, their name during the description of their activity is missing; all I see is " makes a mockery of the whatever."

When somebody comments on my performances afterward, they are unable to identify who performed them; all I see is: "I saw an unknown creature tell the story..."
No tags attached.

0009768, "Name does not appear during performance", is covering the second case.

Does this happen to you with all performances all the time in 0.44.01 / 0.44.02 or does it occur just sometimes?

I can say it happens to me with every performance, npc and my own

Regarding the third part, "When somebody comments on my performances afterward, they are unable to identify who performed them; all I see is: 'I saw an unknown creature tell the story...'":

People just say that if they don't know your name.

I told a story, people reacted with: "I saw an unknown creature tell the story ..."
Then I shouted a greeting to everyone, so everyone knows who I am.
I recited a poem afterwards, and people reacted: "I saw Ilral Enjoygranite recite the poem ..."

So I think this part at least is intended behavior.

Interesting. Would inability to determine surface identity (who/what you are) explain why goblin site identity checks are also non-functional? 0010346


The identity of particular nobles (dwarf monarch particularly) is also reliant for [DETERMINES_COIN_DESIGN] if a particular area of identity is broken in version 44.02 with issue report 0010355 they would not be able to determine the coin design from features that don't exist.
