Yeah terrible idea.
There's also the events section, where players can make or select from any number of assorted PvE/PvP events. For instance, I'm currently looking at the events page filtered for ToT runs. I see 1 for tonight, 6 for tomorrow, 9 for Saturday (and more will appear between now and then, for sure). I click on "Nyzx Weekly 25H ToT" and the resulting page shows me the start time, raid leader, ilvl requirements, a description of what the raid is doing and what the leader wants out of the people signing up and reserved items (most raids don't have these, but some do). There's a sign up button for... signing up, a roster button to see who has already signed up and been accepted, a comments page, and other assorted information. Very easy to use.

The bags currently contain nothing of value so they may as well be removed, however I feel adding current tier gear to them would be a but much. So how about a Warforged Seal?
It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the beans of Java that thoughts acquire speed, the hands acquire shakes, the shakes become a warning.
I would also accept a "kick ticket".
10 uses. Allows me to kick whoever the fuck I want, no voting, no 4 hour protections, no other retarded bullshit restrictions. YOu're gone when I say you're gone.
Cba waiting 15 minutes to kick afkers at the start of the run.
meh, no thanks. Short of giving tanks and healers a thousand gold a run with 0 repair bills, LFR is not and never will be worth bothering with now that flex is here to stay.
Am I the only one that really likes tanking? I don't do any organized raids, even if I play a decent amount, I do not want to have to play during a set period.
I tank LFR, enjoy doing it. I even tank LFDs when I'm VP capped and there is no goodie bag.
Most LFR runs go very smooth as well. In ToT there is the occasional wipe on Lei Shen, but it's been quite a while, everything else dies really fast. And this week I had 1 wipe on Nazgrim, the other bosses in the first 2 wings were one-shotted. Haven't done the underhold this week. I expect quite a few wipes, but in 2 or 3 weeks most stuff will be one-shotted as well...
It's really not as bad as ppl make it out to be.
Also, if you want to play that game, many have said that tanking is ridiculously easy this expansion...
However, OT: No, LFR should NEVER reward gear from Flex/Normal mode, I do not care if the queue times are 24 hours, maybe this will FINALLY send a message to Blizzard about LFR.
(That's not even an elitist mindset, before I get flamed, I've known Casuals who refuse to do LFR)

A kick ticket would be a terrible idea, and if you can't think of the ways that it could possibly be abused then you really have no place in this discussion.
You want flex or normal gear, go do flex or normal. I'm all good with LFR staying alive, but if the casual raiders want to keep it .. they can spec tanking and keep it alive. Not encourage flex and normal tanks to come run their stuff because they don't want to spec into tanking. And if there aren't enough people to keep it running, then I guess it dies a natural death.
This just might be the worst idea I've ever heard, but on a lot of levels. One it's probably a bad thing that since healers and tanks don't wanna do LFR, blizz tries to entice them by just giving them gear that is completely undeserving for the difficulty level. Two, people would end up gearing out of LFR faster which would mean even less tanks and healers in the long run. Three, it would just encourage hybrid dps to spec as a healer.

The reason LFR is so bad right now is because the good players aren't in there anymore. Give them a reason to come back and LFR stops being so terrible. But you're too much of a fucking idiot to understand that YOU aren't going to be the only decent player in there if a change like this is made, so you can't see the benefit. Start thinking beyond yourself, douchebag.
Since LFR gear is already inferior to what you can get by grinding solo content (Timeless Isle), just downgrade the difficulty of LFR to a 25 man scenario (completable by any combination of 25 random players, no specific rolls needed) and just replace the various loot with the 496 TI loot tokens and a random chance to drop a Burden of Eternity.
Flex/Normal/Heroic raiders get distinctive tier gear, LFR players get fast queues.
