I must echo the general sentiment.

Having an RP tag on a server will help the RP community find one another. No need to change the ruleset in any way, just need to label the server.

Without the tag, the community may fragment, and it's far more likely that people who RP will be griefed by other players (since they're playing on a "normal" server).

Sure, griefers may specifically join the RP server to cause trouble - but at least they're the ones in the minority there.

Better for community cohesion. I hope Trion takes this to heart!

Also, one RP server per region is enough to start, one for US and one for EU. Keep the community as closely-knit as possible.
