I can fully agree with this, a servers' popularity (measured by how many
players are playing) is directly linked with how many people have it in
their favourite lists. (Kali, GameSpy, ASE, ingame, etc.).
It takes regular players/admins to "jump start" it when its empty, and
then the rest "semi" regular players who have it in favourites to fill it.
Anyone who have had to move IP (or even port) of a popular server should
be able to attest to this.
