Recently guilds have decided that members are not entitled to see how much gold the guild has, how much they bid on a trader or any say in what they spend members money on. Guilds are handing gold to select members to buy houses etc. All members should be allowed to know what the guild is doing with the gold they get from members and sales. Like any organisation people join said organisation has an obligation to it's members to be open about everything the guild is doing especially when it comes to money. (any feedback would be appreciated)

    In the last year guild leaders and officers have taken/stole all the money from numerous guilds so who are the spies and trolls, I would rather lose the trader once in awhile then have them hide everything from members

    Well if there was an auction house guilds wouldn't have the traders to hold over crafters heads now would they?

    True but three or four players could control the market on many rare items. Better to stick with the traders.

    In my main large guild on ps4, the gm turns off the option to see on Sunday so no one knows what the bid is. On Monday she turns it back on so everyone can see deposits and withdrawals as people donate and raffle money is put in. Etc etc.

    I like that no one can spy on our bids anymore.

    Certain guilds and their senior members are manipulating this game for their own, real-world benefit.
    These people ask for donations, demand minimum sales targets, take a fee for listings and then do absolutely nothing to promote guild sales

    To retaliate:
    • Don't sweat minimum sales targets.
    • Don't donate.
    • Change guilds often.
    • Don't buy mats

    They need you more than you need them. How much did you pay for those items you looted again?

    I have come across one (and only one) guild that offers a great balance between being a trading guild and a vibrant social guild.

    I got suspenders for saying "Testicular Mass" instead of "Balls". like, rilly.

    It was simple for me, I just stopped my weekly donation of 10k to that particular guild assuming they have way more than they actually need if hiding it from members is deemed necessary.

    Yeah that's what I do for my guild - it's turned off for a few hours until after trader switchover, then I turn it back on again.

    I don't see any problem with this, just like any company you work for they have no need to tell you everything, there is no need for you to know how much they spend on a trader. It in no way diminishes or enhances you experiance

    If the guild doesn't take taxes, doesn't have a sales target, or require a small weekly fee, how in Nirn are they going to be able to afford a good trader?

    I have told GMs to not tell everyone (including myself) how much they are bidding on traders. You're just asking to lose your bid by doing so.

    The gold is hidden to protect the amount of bids for guild traders. If gold were visible, people could figure it out and tell the competition.

    And if you think there is a lack of transparency and don't like it, the members can leave the guild. Perhaps supply and demand will take over.

    someone has issues!

    is this is how paranoid you are, how about you start a successful trade guild and bid on traders. that way, you are the guild leader and you can decide that your own guild cant see the gold. and then they can accuse you of stealing from them. and then you can refer them back to this suggestion.
