tbh its a 3/10, 1 is possible if those that are ignorant and just think of it being as pure bad. I don't recommend coming here though,

1. Server is alliance or horde heavy?

Alliance

2. How is the economy?

Horde side isn't bad

3. How is the population?

Horde side is pretty empty except around 6-10ish tues/thurs

4. How active is this server in general?

Pugs happen still, not nearly as much as other servers but they still do sometimes.

5. What is the average player skill in Dungeons and Raids?

Dungeons? (DF makes this irrelevent) Raids? (Top guilds are average, with a lot of below average guilds as well)

6. Is this server full of a bunch of elitist jerks?

I'd think not.

7. How active, friendly and helpful are the best Raiding guilds?

Top5 then? Top10? I don't know, nobody even talks to other guilds as far as we know.. for us i suppose, full circle ranks as... not active, jerks (but funny), not helpful lol
Other guilds apparently do other things like achieves, alt runs, etc. So i'd assume they were more active/helpful etc.

8. How active, friendly and helpful are the best Casual guilds?

In my experience, they are more friendly and helpful atleast.

9. How active, friendly and helpful are the best PVP guilds?

We have pvp guilds? -_- (i don't know about this question)

10. Give an overall rating form 1-10 on this server.

3/10 is generous.

It's a server, it's not completely dead.. but to go here is to basically pigeonhole yourself into a situation where you have very very few options when it comes to what kind of gameplay you prefer.

Honestly, go somewhere else if you want to raid, guilds that kill HM deathwing with 2 debuffs-4debuffs later are really irrelevant if you want to really play seriously.

If you want a strong pvp guild try a pvp server with some relevance.

If you want to play casually from time to time, and don't mind being on a small server.. go for it.

Horde side can't seem to ever have a PvP guild last for more than a couple weeks :-P

Counterpoint and Sin With A Grin have quite a few good players ally side, and everyone I've talked to from them seemed friendly and nice :-)

Personally I love this server :-) but it's not the most active, and only 3 guilds (all Alliance) have downed Heroic DW last time I checked :-P

If you're looking for World First's and a 2600+ rating, I'd say keep looking, but if you want a friendly, fun server, and a chance at trying to be a "big fish in a small pond", Shadowsong is a nice place to live :-)

Servers are down.... *rage*
Anyway

1. Server is alliance or horde heavy?
Alliance
2. How is the economy?
Both seem pretty healthy, if you're looking for cheap xmog gear, its def not here.
3. How is the population?
I've run with 3 other guilds since I xferred here last year. Most pugs I've been on have managed to force their way thru DW or whatever boss they're attempting. The only raid I've seen fail miserably is H-FL as you still kinda have to know what you're doing.
4. How active is this server in general?
Its active if you know where to look. Granted its not Illidan with 10k ppl in Dal on Wed at 2pm but you can generally find people doing/selling/running stuff.
5. What is the average player skill in Dungeons and Raids?
Yumcake summed this one up pretty well.
6. Is this server full of a bunch of elitist jerks?
There are some. Bunch? Naw. Just dont ever trust something you heard in trade, odds are its wrong.
7. How active, friendly and helpful are the best Raiding guilds?
I can really only speak for Icon in terms of this one but I know myself and some others help people do stuff, (gear/spec/gem or even run a bunch of lowbies I've never met thru Ring of Blood.) If you're not a jerk when asking a question, we don't tend to be jerks back. Put your foot in your mouth about something and you'll hear about it for a while.
8. How active, friendly and helpful are the best Casual guilds?
Most that I've encountered are very helpful, willing to level you, do runs, achievement stuff ect.
9. How active, friendly and helpful are the best PVP guilds?
I'm with Yumcake on this one, haven't really seen a pvp guild on Horde. Learned that one when I was trying to set up an RBG team lol
10. Give an overall rating form 1-10 on this server.
I'd give it a 5, mostly because I <3 Icon and am glad to have come here. I've played on med-high pop before (Bleeding Hollow) and found most people to be complete jerks. The people I've run into on this server are generally good-hearted if a bit mislead and I know I'll be calling this server home for quite a while.

Don't include those guild's names and "good" in the same sentence unless you're saying that they "aren't good." thanks

Hate to burst your bubble, but the server and its forums are different things altogether. You can quite easily think the server blows and find some entertainment on the forums. That said, the forums here have been pretty stale for a long time as well.

1. Server is alliance or horde heavy?
Alliance

2. How is the economy?
hm... I think its ok. depends I guess if you are buying/selling and what market you are in really.

3. How is the population?
I think we are classified as medium population server. We are however a day 1 server, so there are a lot of people who are here have been here for a long time.

4. How active is this server in general?
Alliance side seems fairly active. Can't speak for horde

5. What is the average player skill in Dungeons and Raids?
That depends. Often it depends on who was screening and forming the groups to tell you the truth. I've organized some alt runs for guildies and filled in a couple of spots with pugs and still did just fine. Back before LFR, I use to organize 25 man gold dkp runs with 15 guildies + 10 pugs and we usually can clear most content in under 3 hours (baring the ones where you really need to know what you are doing such as LK, rags).

6. Is this server full of a bunch of elitist jerks?
No. There are a few, that you might not mesh with. Just get to know people and you will know who you like and not like

7. How active, friendly and helpful are the best Raiding guilds?
I think there is a give and take on all the guild related questions. If you mesh with your guildies, they are more likely to help you. If you get to know them they are more likely to help you. I can't speak for other guilds only us, and we screen all members for not only gear but personality fit also. I would say that for the most part, we're a reasonably friendly bunch :)

8. How active, friendly and helpful are the best Casual guilds?
Don't really know any so can't say

9. How active, friendly and helpful are the best PVP guilds?
Don't really know any so can't say

10. Give an overall rating form 1-10 on this server.
I have been here since I first started playing (vanilla) so I'm probably biased. I like it here, but the truth is I like the group that I play with and wouldn't leave to get to a "better server" because honestly the people I like are all here.

Obvious DC from me there due to the proximity bug. I never would have not released otherwise in time for you to take that.

For sure. There's no way you got in the "proximity" of my amazing Obliterate-spamming skillz, and then were too busy crying at the keyboard to release.

In other news, all my future deaths (and retro-actively, my past deaths), were due to the proximity bug (or lag). I've never actually died! ;-)
