There should be a server ..or two that allows free players and members to play together without punishing the members for being there. (no - must be on a mem server for this!) If free players got a real good look at what the members can do, you may be able to get more f2p over on the paid side. Even if this was done for a limited time - say 1 week. It would give the members time to introduce their friends to that side and teach their "noob" buddies that are just starting out, or just give them a chance to play together.
