David Parsons's bidding problem: KQ3 T54 AQ93 K32
It helps if you play that a negative double at the three level is forcing to game (which makes sense anyway). That way, at least partner need never bid 4. Over 3 I bid 3NT. And for ‘guarantees’ (I) read ‘suggests’.

What does this 3!D bid mean?
Depends strongly on the meaning of 1. If that is always or usually a five-card suit, 3 now as ‘natural’ does not make sense. If on the other hand 1 is ‘semi-natural’ and as of two or three diamonds, then 3 as natural stands out. (Please ...
What is a ‘convention’?
I understand ‘natural’ as the very opposite of ‘artificial’, but apparently not everyone else does.
