Character Deletion not working

ScorpiousScorpious Member Posts: 7
Hi, I can’t delete any characters. I go to survivors, manage then hit the trash can in the bottom right of the picture. It turns a yellow colour from white, however nothing happens. It’s stopping me taking on any new characters. 

Help please
I’ve deleted and reloaded the game up but the same happens

    @Scorpious how many character slots do you have and do you have the outpost unlocked?  If your survivors are defending outpost you can't delete them until you remove them from outpost defense.

    Post some screenshots so we can figure out what's going on.

    so as you can see my character pool is short. The ones I’m trying to delete are not in outpost. (I’ve only just unlocked outpost) and pressing the button just changes it yellow for a second

    @Scorpious are you currently in a guild?  Previously there was a bug where if you were in a guild, it would automatically assign some survivors to GW defense.  If you can try the following, leave your guild, then delete the survivors then rejoin the guild.  Let me know if this works or not.

    If you are not in a guild then you need to contact in game support.

    There’s still some known bugs that are happening, which we did not have time to focus on as we were working on the 4.2 Bugfix update, but we are continuing with investigations and working on fixes for them. These are the known issues:
    • Scouts equipped with certain weapons, such as Kingdom Spear or Bayonet Musket, have slow movement
    • Not being able to retire survivors - a temporary fix for this is to leave the guild, removing the survivor, and then coming back to the guild.
