There has only been 35 submitted surveys so far, mostly from subscribers who play a lot, mostly in Oceania, some in Asia, all playing on APAC or who want to play on APAC.
Here are some of the results at this point:
Playstyle:
Player versus Environment (PvE) . . . . 94.29% . . . . 33
Player verus Player (PvP) . . . . 57.14% . . . . 20
Role Playing (RP) . . . . 34.29% . . . . 12

Opinion on server merges:
For . . . . 82.86% . . . . 29
Against 17.14% . . . . 6

Mixed feelings on transfer, with more people for allowing people to transfer to APAC, or to just one of the APAC servers.

Peoples feelings about the low population:
It hasn't affected my experience/Don't care . . . . 17.14% . . . . 6
It has influenced me to unsubscribe . . . . 8.57% . . . . 3
It has influenced me to play/subscribe . . . . 0% . . . . 0
It has influenced me to re-roll on a non APAC server . . . . 22.86% . . . . 8
It has influenced me to re-roll on an APAC server . . . . 8.57% . . . . 3
It has made me consider unsubscribing . . . . 51.43% . . . . 18
It has made me consider playing/subscribing . . . . 2.86% . . . . 1
It has diminished my enjoyment of the game . . . . 62.86% . . . . 22
It has enhanced my enjoyment of the game . . . . 11.43% . . . . 4

Of course without more input the results don't mean much.

Some may notice cross server group finder isn't on the list. That's because Bioware has stated they are not working on that for US servers, which means they aren't working on it for us, and won't.

I know! Some people like their MMORPGs not so massive I guess

Another interesting point from the survey so far, half of the people who like RP, also enjoy PVP, and two thirds of them are for a merger.

No but seriously, low pop servers are a draw card for some people who prefer a close community

But it's not a massive sample to really draw many conclusions from

Honestly, I think with all 3 servers merged together, it is still going to be a small community compared to the US/EU Super Servers.

and it can definitely be tight knit, I know Master Dar'Nala is a small community and everyone knows everyone, or of everyone. I don't think merging with Dalborra and Gav'Daragon will change that, just enhance what we already have.

I think they are deciding if they should keep them at all, what else could possibly be the cause of such delays?

Personally i want my chars off this APAC hell hole, and have my fingers crossed for APAC to US server xfers.

Alright, I didn't think I'd honestly stoop to this but I have.

You want a server merger? Fine, then tell whoever it is that has my character names to change theirs first. My main is Ailias Bash'wan. I've role played her as Ailias from day one, that is her name. If you merge servers you're just going to start all this name changing crap all over again. Going through our guild list with the more noteable characters is the same deal, names unavailable. These are names we spent hours coming up with, with some the sheer fact that someone else has managed to create it... who else thinks up a random name like Arvisur if not to copy someone else?!

So not only would I be forced to play with a bunch of wankers which quite frankly can all go top themselves as far as I'm concerned, but the years worth of RP I've built with my characters and our guild will be shot to pieces.

Sorry, but no.
