Dead RP servers

I started playing wow on wrath of the lich king, and stopped during the beggining of wod due to real life issues… I came back to the game just recently to re-experience that, and decided to hop in a RP server for curiosity and the sake of a new experience. I choose Farstriders, since the population seemed high at first, and i leveled my main class again… I noticed how empty the server always is and, there are no roleplayers at all in the RP server, i was hoping that by picking a server with a high population i’d meet plenty of people, but without the overwhelming chaos that moonguard is. Am i missing out on something?
