Problem: People forget to put "P2P" in the description or they don't use the "Select Dungeon" feature.
Fix: Force the requirement of "Select Dungeon".


Problem: But that "Select Dungeon" list is sooo long!
Fix: Give the quests keywords and an autocomplete text-input to make it easier.
Example: Typing "tempe" will bring up "Did you mean Tempest's Spine?" or something. (like Google lol)


Problem: People don't list difficulty. Annoying if you're grinding XP!
Fix: MAKE them choose "Normal", "Hard", "Elite", "Epic", or "Varies". (don't have one pre-selected for them to click on through)


Problem: "Hide Content I don't own" isn't selected by default.
Reason: Turbine wants to show there is other content available if they buy.
Problem: Because of that, nubcakes will try joining those quests anyway.
Fix: Instead of allowing them to join, prompt them with "You can't join. You don't own that content. Click that Buy Now! button to get it."

Not all things that go in the Grouping tab of the Looking for More panel are dungeons. You have explorer areas, groups that want to decide on quests after forming, and even situations where someone may be throwing a player event of some kind desiring more folks in their group to carry it out.

Ah! Hey that's something I didn't consider good catch. Well...

Okay then have them select between "Special" or "Dungeon" and if they check "Special" it greys-out the Dungeon search box and they can type in a description only?

But have Dungeon selected by default so if they want to do the special thing then at the top they just check the second option. (to prevent them from ignoring the cool new Dungeon LFM method proposed)
