0002637: Dwarfs assigned to squads do not become soldiers
I just created two squads. None of the assigned dwarfs seem to switch to active duty, no matter the alert level. Neither do I recieve any messages upon changing the alert level.
They apperantly do train (although they show the usual known training weirdness), but their picture doesn't change and DT doesn't register them as on active duty. The "labor" menu also remains as if they were civilians.
Before creating these two new squads, I deleted my old one. The dwarfs in the old squad did not show this behavior.

When unpaused, three dwarfs went on duty and began training. You have their schedule set to '3' so that is all that will train on duty. See 0000751 for this.

Only squad 'a' Razors of Ferocity is on active duty. Squad 'b' is inactive, so all of their members may choose to do civilian tasks or spend time training, which some of them are.

If you wait a bit, the 3 'soldier' icon active duty reservists will gather at the armor stand and do their thing. See the following pic, showing the mayor, a swordsdwarf and a macedwarf of squad 'a'.
