I've just been explaining to a newbie who is level 5 how to open the LFM panel and how to create LFM's.
People complain about the lack of lfm's fairly often. Are we doing ourselves any favours by not having a step-by-step tutorial on how to use these and how to put one up to help new players?
We have the public party option that would let new players automatically generate an LFM where people can port directly to the quest, but what's the point of that if they don't know it exists or how to use it?
Maybe we should have some default setting that highlights that the lfm has been created by a new player who may not know the quest - something a veteran can easily turn off if they want to.
So with the harbour revamp, maybe we can go one better than just playing with the cosmetics and add a tutorial that teaches new players how the LFM system works and what some of the more common abbreviations mean?
