I personally think, that people should think less and play more. I honestly can't understand why would any WoW player care if the subscriptions are receding or not – if the game is good, play it. If you don't like it - stop it. Really now, if you would read on some random internet blog, that SAMSUNG sales are decreasing, would you ditch your new monitor as well? That's just silly, no other way to put it.

Receding numbers means servers have less people to play with, less people to recruit into your guild and raid team, and a smaller talent pool to choose from. Some servers are very dead. If your server dwindles down, and you really want to have a healthy server population, you have to pay the transfer cost (a micro-transaction that is automated and shouldn't be so expensive). Borean Tundra realm only has 1 guild that's done heroic Ragnaros, and server population is slowly falling, not drastically, but I've seen long-time and new players alike leave. I'd like to apply to a different guild on a more populated server, but I'm too broke to move my two main raiding characters.

The fall in subscription numbers is nowhere near drastic enough to affect that kind of thing yet. It's interesting to note the trend and ponder where this will lead Blizzard to take the game next. But your issues would appear to be more along the lines of existing quality of life issues on a low-population server.
