    Proposal:
    Make it so that players that use android devices/mobile phones if we know the name of the guild we're looking for to join we can type in the guild's name.

    Current System:
    Right now the only option we have is to scroll through all the guilds to find the guild that we want to join.

    Details:
    Making it so that players that use android devices/mobile phones if we know the name of which guild we want to join if we can type in the guild's name instead of scrolling for it which will make it a whole lot quicker to find.

    Abuse Prevention:
    There's no way to abuse it.

    Visual Aid:

    Conclusion:
    Making it so that players that use android devices/mobile phones if we know the name of the guild we want to join we can type in the guild's name instead of scrolling for it which will make it a whole lot quicker to find.

    On PC you can search in the rankings to find a specific guild not sure about mobile.

    I think you can search on mobile, but you can't try to join or apply to a guild on the rankings, which is kind of a pain.

    I vote yes. The game looks real good in mobiles.

    Right. I fixed the typos in my previous post.

    I'm asking why this was sent to voting. There is almost no discussion or support given. Seems way too premature to be in vooting.

    Good question. It got exactly 2 people supporting it. And less than one full page of discussion.

    To be fair, There maybe isn't much to discuss here? That's my my running theory, for now.

    I'ma leaning yes, because it appears to be a simple QoL for mobiles.

    That's a good idea and it is sometimes necessary.

    Does it really need a lot of discussion if it is a good idea? I was surprised and disappointed when I couldn't find a way to search for a guild on my phone. I found this thread while looking for how to do it but apparently you can't. I hope this gets changed.

    You can't even search for guilds through that interface on Browser. Both On Browser and Mobile you can search for a guild by name using the ranking board, the only difference is you can't see the Guild Profile or Join from there on Mobile like you can on Browser.

    Yes, you're correct about the interface.

    But, I think the point is that on the mobile version there is no way to search for a guild and apply. Seeing the guild description would be a great addition to this proposal.

    I don't care where the ability to search a guild and perform these functions is located, I just want to be able to do it. :D

    Yeah I forgot too but added you can't join either from the rank board on Mobile either, which is silly.

    Android/mobile players can find the ranking of a guild by typing in the guild but to join a guild they've got to scroll through a whole lot of guilds to find the one that they want.
