As I always come up with weird ideas when I have nothing better to do, yesterday I decided to do something special with my LFMs. An experiment based on the "read the LFM" problems many leaders are experiencing.
Had a few quests I wanted to run so I decided to post my LFMs like this:
To join -> /tell Distributed I will heal myself without a hireling, in progress
LFM also had the correct quest selected, so it shows up on the panel, and the difficulty too (elite)
Here are the results, out of 20 persons that applied (only ran a few quests that evening):
2 : Sent me the tell properly, they know what difficulty it was and they quickly get to the correct quest.
12 : Just apply to the LFM, no tell.
(sub category) : Out of those 12, 8 reply '***?' or something similar when declined.
4 : Send me a tell asking what difficulty. Tell them it's on the LFM
(sub category) : Out of those 4, 2 apply after I tell them to look on the LFM, but no correct tell from them.
Last 2 : 'lol good idea, any luck with it?' Okay they didn't apply but I'm counting them anyway.
Will do this again tonight, stay tuned for more results!
