ranking for all servers not some
But ranking on what to be precise?

On user voting? How would you do that and void cheating since votes might be anonymous. Something like this would be implemented in a browser like the one @George made since people have accounts and can vote only once. But still.

On the number of players? That's already in the browser as a sorting utility. However, it doesn't include player base over a certain time interval. However an old server with a sh!tty script could shadow a new server with a good script if you only take into account the player base from the past.

On user reviews? What qualifies someone to genuinely review a server? And not just be like "good server" if bribed by staff with some perks in game or "bad server" if but hurt from kick. But, someone that actually knows how to explore the server weaknesses and see how robust it is. Whether its safe to play on it and spends some time monitoring the staff bias towards certain players and how the used script behaves. And also how genuine the script is. Might as well just make a sub forum for this.

On server up-time? Latency? You can't take latency into account on behalf of people that play from all over the world.

On unique features? This would end up starting scandals everywhere for people trying to keep features from being copied as if they own them. Ignoring the fact that anyone could eventually come up with them sooner or later. Lots of but-hurt people here, you know.

On developer integrity/reputation? Will he leak my info? Will he maintain this server? Is he capable of creating a safe and lag-less script? etc.

On what actually are we supposed to rank these? But more importantly, where are we supposed to save this ranking since the master-list is very decentralized. Anyone can make a master-list. Which is something I appreciate the devs for thinking about.

You brought the idea. You're supposed to say how this system is supposed to work. And we contribute if necessary. At least that's what I'm expecting.

You don't go to NASA and be like. We should make the moon green. Get to it.

It's very bad for new developers actually, any idea published before you did it => not your idea, as in patents system. This very unfair. And ranking is corrupt by nature.

If we put a ranking for the servers , the server's owners will challenge for get the 5 stars specially the new servers developers maybe it make the players votes and give them some money in the game it's bad idea
That is my thoughts
