There would be absolutely no point in us being able to see how many are online, that information would only be useful for GMs.
When joining a server they could compare it to other servers not only that, but judging on how many factions are in the server you can tell weather your faction is healthy or not compared to how healthy the server is itself. And yes for new players this would be important. Its easy to do and it is helpful
If it was that important of a need, the GM's could just post an online counter on the forum main page, or the new players could just determine how active people are by looking at world chat for 5 seconds.. As they already seem to do.
i agree with aga that should only show to gm's i cant say why cause im 2 lazy to type it atm
