[edit] intro

If there are no servers, or many dysfunctional servers in your server list. you can observe the following effect:

  • Search server/ global search does not return any results
  • Search server/ global search returns obvious fake results with some virus/spyware and incredible amounts of sources.
  • You cannot connect to a server
  • You find no (new) sources for your downloads, and thus download is very slow.

Note that lowid have a much harder time to connect to servers since the valid servers are overloaded and lowid add far more load. If you have a lowid please review that point also.
