Guild Search Function.

We have a few players reporting that our guild is not showing up in searches. We are a six guild family and none of them are showing up in results. @Teeceezy.

Further testing shows that many guilds are not showing in results. Known issue?

Thanks,

POWERUK.

    We recently had cause to create a breakaway guild and found each other quite easily in the new guild. 2 members searching for us though are putting in the correct guild name but are not finding the guild after they search. They are doing nothing different to the rest of us and we found the guild through search ok. Please help. We don't want to lose each other as we've been playing well together for a long time now and enjoy our chats

    Put something distinctive in the guild description ("tigerfilly" should work!) and get them to search for THAT instead of the guild name. Might work.

    I'm not sure about that but after 2 weeks waiting for a new member in my guild, i've recently realized that a player could not find SurvivorsReborn In searches...

    At: http://forums.nextgames.com/walkingdead/discussion/2012/guild-recruiting-official-survivorsreborn-top-50-ranked#latest
    I tried searching for it, but it's not coming up on my list for me. Same for two others I've searched for, it's very frustrating.


    Could be a bug or something?? :o

    Hi @Pig
    Tigerfrilly and I are in the same (new) guild. I searched the forums for a solution. Think I saw some of your previous advice posts regarding searching for distinctive words in the guild description. We tried that, and still no luck. I sent in a help ticket. Noticed several similar posts here. Must be a bug, possibly 2.1 related, or not? Appreciate the suggestion :)

    That's too bad! Hopefully it gets sorted out for you soon.

    Not update 2.1 bug... It's 2 weeks i'm waiting for player number 20 in my guild... We disappeared from searches several time ago. Usually we had several requests every week. Recently we had a permanent 20 members guild with no changes for 4 or 5 months and 15 days ago when we missed a player suddently no more request!

    They kept trying and finally found us this morning. They didn't do anything different. and they said they found with the guild name, which didn't work the day before. Won't even try to figure out the logic :)

    I finally got our guild mate in tonight. What I did was type in the first three words of our guild description. And it finally came up.

    @capibara , try adding something unique to the description field like #capibara and have them search for that.

    Uhm thanks but this suggestion could work for friends who wants to join again the guild, but our problem is that we need to refill empty slots a no one join from 15 days because we disappeared... And we miss also those who try to find us after reading the recruit call in the forum thread.. And yes i can try to browse also another strange wolrd like capybara but at the end they have already joined another visible guild because there are tons of guild waiting...
    There is no chance to fix that?

    At @capibara , it should be fixed but I have notice that adding unique description helps when there are multiple guilds of the same name. That's the usual procedure I see for guild recruitment.

    Thanks! And adding 'SurvivorsReborn' to the description can work too as a tag?

    #SurvivorsReborn , the # tags it. For example Recruitment thread for Retribution.

    @capibara , FYI: when recruits search they need to add #.
