Topic Zuluhed stats
There have been several posts concerning the steady decline of the realm population. I did some research on where we stand in regards to population. I used several sources such as realmpop, census, wow progress and guildox. I found that there are 615 servers worldwide and we are ranked 450ish as far as raid progression. Also we have about 2800 active accounts realm wide. I checked the top servers for raid progression and found they have 18000 ish active accounts. It appears there is a direct correlation to raid success and population. I agree that to attract raiders here we need a few more guilds on both sides with better progression especially on the alliance side. So I believe that we need to consolidate guilds on the alliance side. We could stop some of the bleeding by sponsoring pug raids but that is a temporary stop gap measure at best. So I say to all the guilds out there consider consolidation or the realm will die a slow death.

I am not by any means a active player just casual but I have the wow census mod and have been uploading the data sense I came back last month. Get version 6.0 here http://wow.curseforge.com/addons/census-plus/ then upload the data to http://www.warcraftrealms.com/upload.php
Don't worry it will not effect performance and I opt in for the auto runs to get as much data to help the community.
Well if you are sitting all the time no wonder you have a bad season. You have to at least walk around a little. Maybe a jump or two.

Lets apply your logic (giggles) that PVp realms only PVp and pve realms only raid. Using wowprogress as the baseline I searched for top us pve progression realms. The results are below:
1 Illidan (up) PvP en 30918.84 14,831 (1/0.01) -05:00 WG in <1 min, TB active
2 Mal'Ganis (up) PvP en 29220.53 10,835 (1/0.01) -05:00 WG in <1 min, TB in <1 min
3 Frostmourne (up) PvP en 25515.45 11,206 (0.54/1) +10:00 WG in 2 min, TB active
4 Stormrage (up) PvE en 24298.42 13,758 (0.03/1) -04:00 WG active, TB in 110 min
5 Sargeras (up) PvP en 23438.79 9,854 (0.06/1) -05:00 WG in <1 min, TB in <1 min
Wow! 4 of the top 5 pve progression realms are PVp servers! You have been debunked!!!
