I am the recent(~1wk) owner of a guild I have been on the crew of for a while(~1yr) and I've been trying to send an announcement.
I've tried going:
Guild homepage -> (Arrow next to moderator panel) -> send guild announcement
Guild homepage -> View all Annoncements -> send guild announcement
either way I can get to the annoncement creation page, but when I click 'send' I just go right back to the annoncement creation page, and there is no evidence anywhere of the message being sent, even after waiting a while (long enough to be auto-logged out again)
I tried previewing before sending, and hitting the preview button resulted in the same thing: going right back to the annoncement creation page, with no preview visible.
I'm being told it takes 44 gold to send an announcement, and my guild has gold in the thousands, so it doesn't seem to be a matter of being unable to afford the message, and no gold is removed from the account for the unsent messages.
