Netease - XYQ - servers consolidation

For those who counts XYQ servers. You might want to be a little careful in that NTES is currently undergo server consolidation to eliminate the "ghost servers".

XYQ typically adds 1 or 2 new servers every week. Those new servers attracts users from old servers. In addition, some times a gang, a clicq, or group left the old server for whatever reason, and the old server are left with very little users. That created unbalance in the economic, and social system in the old server. As a result, more users migrated to the new servers. After a while, you created "ghost servers".

XYQ is undergoing server consolidation right now (from December 2006 to March 2007).

But to avoid user confusion, the servers being consolidated will still exist (in name only) on the server status page.

What that means to the server counter is that there will be multiple double counts and the counted results will be artificially high.
