I have seen a few posts lately with people complaining about people joining Raid LFM's that are not flagged. How about coding it to the LFM similar to the "BUY IT NOW" box that appears next to a LFM for an Adventure Pack you don't own, have a "HOW TO FLAG" box appear in the same area if you are not flagged for a Raid. Hover over it and it wil list what needs to be done to flag you for a particular Raid.

It won't solve the equipment issues but it's a start.

Also cross-referencing quest started/not started/completed from the quest log could be usefull.

How hard is it to put "be flagged" in your LFM?

Likewise, how hard is it to /tell the party leader asking what you need to do to flag? Or coming to the forums and finding threads like this (http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=168355) or this (http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=218918)?

Could also try reading NPC dialog, lots of clues in there a lot of times that people just click through.

Not trying to troll, just seems like a common sense kind of thing.

How about, if you are not flagged you are not considered "qualified" to run the quest and it is grayed out like when you first open the window?

Most players of MMORPG's do not read the forums or do any online research.

I think part of the problem may be new players not realising it is a raid or that they have have to flag for it. The was a post yesterday from someone confused about why he was booted from a Dragon Raid. He was not aware he needed to run VON's 1-4 first and thought it was s stand alone Raid like Tempest Spine which he had ran previously.

This is one of the best suggestions I've ever seen on the forums. +1 rep.

This should also include the small number of flag-required 6 person quests too.
