Topic Free realm migration

Hello.I hope you read my facts carefully and don't start raging.Shattered halls is a low population server as you know.Furthermore hordes are at least 4 times more than alliance.
To begin with i started in this realm 2 years ago with no friend in game to guide me or explain me that "new player" means stay away.So i joined this so called "pvp" realm thinking i will be playing against other low lvl guys and we all lvlup at the same time.When i dinged 85 and start communicating for arena and stuff i learned that new players means ghost server and not a new one.
I stoped playing for 1,5 year cause of that until 2 weeks ago that i came back to see that nothing has changed.In SW when i type /who and then choose lvl 1-85 i see 18 players found.So when you ask for arena 2v2 partner you can't find anyone descent with at least 3500 resilience and without a team already.When you ask for BH the people are so few that if you are a class like warrior that shares same weapons with other classes you most likely don't find a group cause only 2 groups the msot can be made.When you ask out of guild for a raid to DS you may do it for 1 week and still noone answering to you.You may ask for an inscriptionist and ask for 2hr+ until someone answers.You ask for global pvp?Even if some brave souls happen to agree.You will gather a group of people just dinged 85 and a sum of 20 the most.So if you go to ogrimar where the hordes are like 100+ you instantly die.If i say hi in chat and stay afk for 2hr i will still see my chat unless 3-4 spammers for gold sites come online and and spam every 3 minutes.I mention mostly pvp facts cause it is a PVP server and i care for pvp.
To sum up.Before i stop playing for 1,5 year 5 people i knew already transfered to other realms.After my come back 20-30 people from my guild transfered too.One of the biggest guilds called libertas massively transfered.5 of my friend transfered in this week.So i wonder doesn't blizzard see that the realm will be dead soon?I bet it does but makes more profit waiting to die after all players transfer other than give them a free transfer.
Finally,i request my realm getting in the list of free migration servers or be merges with other ghost realms like that one.Thank you in advance!
Even with the FCM from Outland (probably the largest alliance population in EU realm) to Shattered Halls a month or two ago, it hardly changed anything. And the thing is, theres worse realms than the SH alliance:horde ratio out there, so I really doubt there'll be a merge.
They should merge imho. Even Horde is getting ridicoulously low amounts of online players. Pugging raids is 1 or 2 raids per evening. That's 20 players that PuG. And to be honest that is very low.
FCM doesn't work. Merging servers does! Just close the AH 2 days before merging and then just merge without people losing their guilds and stuff. Only problem will be guildnames and Char names. But it will be so much better in the end.
I am on this server since the end of TBC. And the cmmunity at least on Horde side was always good to me. Now on the other hand you can't really talk of a community. I was online Friday night and saturday night. When I typed /who in Orgrimmar there where Friday 32 players 82-85 and Saturday 36. That is low. I'm not that much online due to RL stuff. But I would say there should be more people online in weekends.
