Guild Announcements
I'm not 100% sure on this, but I think I've lost the ability to do something I used to be able to do. Either that or I'm imagining that I was able to do it and I never could (in which case, this would make a handy feature and consider it my newest suggestion ). Is it possible to change an announcement once it's been announced?

I made a post in our guild forums, and set it to be an announcement. A couple things have changed, so I edited the post, but the announcement on the same page didn't change. I tried un-announcing & re-announcing it, but that didn't change it either. I could've sworn I did this before, but I'm kinda nuts, so if I'm losing my mind, feel free to tell me. For now I guess I'll just make a new thread and announce that one instead, but I'm curious as to whether or now I've gone completely bonkers, so I thought I'd post.

Oh, and I wanted to know if it would be possible to lock a thread at any point in the future? (Locking = a thread can be viewed but not posted on) I've gone to lock 3 or 4 threads now and I have to keep reminding myself that it's not possible!

*
I also wanted to mention a couple other things, while I'm thinking of them...
I've placed the roster for the guild on a page which we titled "members" and removed it from the main page. Doing so seems to have disabled the statistics which were formerly located next to the roster. Also, attempting to reorganize the roster (i.e. searching Mains instead of Mains & Alts) sends you back to the guild's main page.

Sorry that I seem to always have some sort of complaint...I like this place, I wouldn't be here if I didn't. I'm just not very good at making suggestions or minor errors sound like anything other than extremely negative...

Tarinth is making a monumental change to announcements so that they will be a far more flexible and powerful tool. Some of the new code sneaked in with a bug fix for something else, and viola! broken announcements. Tarinth is away today or this would have been fixed already. It's on the breakfast menu for tomorrow.

I'll put thread locking on the feature request list.

A swarm of bugs there. I will try and duplicate this tonight so we can swat these tomorrow too.

Au contra ire! GuildCafe needs more people like you during this time of massive upgrades. Many people just go off to a competitor without even telling us what went wrong. You are not overly negative! Our guild hosting is just mega buggy. I promise you though. It shall all be worth it when we become the best guild hosting service in the world.
