/guild/members access restrictions

Why is the /guild/members endpoint only accessible by the guild leader? All the information returned is already available to regular members in-game, what is the downsides of having this available to every member of the guild?

    It was a conservative design decision I made just in case there were privacy concerns. There's no clean way for guild leaders to indicate who should and should not have API access, so that bit is implemented by limiting access to guild leader keys.

    Probably not going to remove the restriction.

  • I request you reconsider that please. Many of us would like you to remove that conservative design decision. If you don't remove the restriction, who can we speak to about it?

    Thank you for your reply.

    Is this topic still open for discussion?

    Is there any hope for removing this restriction?

    Why do you think /guild/:id/upgrades and /guild/:id/treasury endanger player privacy?
    Edit: My expectation is that if I'm member of a guild, it should be OK to access the guild data (I'm member of) through the API.
