    Default LFM Queue

    So, I doubt this is on the table for any time soon, but if some dev has time to take a crack at it, here's my wish list for the LFM panel:

    1. Change the color scheme. That hideous khaki has to go.

    2. Quest Queue. Change the design so that you can queue up an entire list of quests and it puts an -> on your screen that advances your LFM to display the next quest in the queue. Ideally, even make it so that you can simply add a quest PACK to your LFM and it automatically adds every quest in that pack to your list.

    3. Sort quests by location/pack. The list is incredibly cumbersome to deal with and gets more so with every release.

    4. Different entries for the heroic and epic versions of the same quest.

    5. Reaper skull number displays instead of just "reaper".

    6. Add wilderness exploration areas to the list so that you can select them manually.

    7. Get rid of the class include/exclude option. It has no real value and takes up an enormous amount of GUI real estate.

    8. If you currently have an LFM up, change your display background on the Who and Friends list to be bright gold.

    9. Show, in numbers and on the main LFM listing, how many open slots there are. Don't make me mouse-over and count to figure out if there's room for me and my buddy. In fact, just list the names/class icons of everyone in the party on the main LFM listing. Those boxes are huge. Use that real estate. Put the comments in their own box.

    10. Free (non-premium) players can't add comments to the LFM. This should do something to prevent the occasional but annoying LFM trolling, since you can't create a free account to post offensive garbage.

    11. Make a second social tab for people to post trade and guild recruitment LFM's. If you click on it, instead of joining a party you just send that person a tell.

    I like the Khaki color scheme......however, having the ability to choose our own. Perhaps a color slider

    Not everyone does the list in the order they are in the queue. Even chains or sagas.

    Isn't this an option recently added?

    Agreed...I think most of us can decide ourselves who we want in our parties

    I am assuming this is a blonde thing? :-)

    VERY much agreed. LFM's that recruit or trade/sell just get in the way of those of us that just want to see an lfm we are interested in joining....not have to sort through lfms

    Since you are talking about an element of the Social Panel, I'd like to see some changes/fixes.

    1. Fix the WHO panel so it auto loads who is on.....like it used to.

    2. Need more room in the MOTD field of the GUILD Panel....not alot of room. perhaps double the current size it is now

    I think in an ideal world what I'd like to have would be an LFM that you can pretty much just leave up--when your party is full, instead of taking the listing down, it just changes the color to gray so that people can see at a glance that it's full.

    That way, when someone leaves the group, you already have an LFM up and ready to go.

    Making this the default would honestly be a big help. It'd let people see at a glance whether there ARE groups going on or not---distinguishing from the case where there are groups but they're just full versus the empty LFM, no groups going.

    I agree, many good suggestions.

    For putting in the quest, how about one option to auto-fill like in public LFM (plus if you want you can still fill in manually before you enter) and autoclears after you're out.

    Or an autocomplete, where you can type "Deat... " and then it suggests "Death House lvl 10, Death House lvl 31" which you can select. Like the autocompletes everywhere else on the web, it would remember your favorite quests and list them first.
