It would be nice if it could say the population of the servers just so people could see which one is the busiest or the least busiest. Also it would be cool if it had to go though turbine but transfer objects from server to server

what sounds like a good idea to you is a nightmare to the game. if you post server populations then all the new players will always goto the most populated servers and u will never get new players onother servers. being able to switch items from server to server is just silly 100%. talk about really helping out the plat farmers there. it would be kinda neat info to know dont' get me wrong but it would have bad impact on the game not a positive.

It is also deceptive from this stand point:

At present I have

Merlask
Varro
Uxor
Mekari

on EVERY server... I have been known to load all of them in to wander about. How would you measure that per say? You could say that subscriptions would be the ultimate determination, but even THAT is deceptive for those who own more than one account and 'box' characters (more difficult to do in DDO, but is/can be done)

They could just list how many people are logged on to that server, at the time. Other games I play do this.
