I think that Blizzards best course of action to foster community, is to combine some of these low pop servers. I started playing on Gul'Dan server just before the launch of patch 2.3. Back then, there were still a few Alliance side guilds that did some good raiding. But, by the time Wrath came out, most of them had gone. The alliance population on that server is very, very low. Horde side is doing far better. I believe that Blizz needs to sit down and look at Server populations and combine according to both faction and server populations. Combine an Alliance heavy/Horde light server with an Alliance light/Horde Heavy server. It shouldn't affect anyone, other than some folks might be miffed that their server name isn't the same anymore, but really, is the name of your server that important? I'd rather have an active population, an active Auction House, and a strong server economy. I started playing on Icecrown about a year and a half ago and I'm amazed at the difference. Just in the Auction House alone... I can't sell a darn thing on Gul'Dan to save my life. There's just no one online to buy anything. There is no community there, and I'm sure that there are other servers suffering from the same problem.

The problem with closing a server is, what if Mists is a massive hit, and they end up having a bump of a few million more subscribers? Then they'd have to re-open those servers, which would piss you off even more.
