If you're still looking, Tempius is a pretty new (<1 month old) server, with a small but wonderful community. We've got a few plugins (Factions to prevent griefing, as well as a few server maintenance plugins to give players things like /home, /spawn, etc.), but we try to run an overall vanilla experience. We have an arena for PvP, or for fighting monsters (the staff can spawn all kinds of mobs in the arena), and a vanilla economy, where players can sell to/buy from the server staff using emeralds. If you want to join, or just want more information, visit our forums: http://tempiusserver.boards.net/ or PM me for more information about the server.
It's hard to find servers that you can truly settle with, that is why sheepserver emerged in the first place. The founder of sheepserver wanted a fair, democratic server where the big decisions were discussed and voted on by the people and not just done by some guy on the top!
We have rules against looting\stealing and PvP. PvP is enabled, but not allowed unless both agree It's a 25 slot server, at the time I'm writing this we have 4 regulars plus myself online. The amount of people online varies from 0 to just a couple, to around 10, to sometimes 25 when we're doing events ^^ With our host we can heighten that limit easily during events to make room for everyone
We are a fairly active, medium sized server and have a unique, mature and friendly community despite it being a open server. Join and have a look around, I think you'll like it
Server name: SheepServer
Current server version: 1.7.5

All the other servers suggested have been completely empty for the short time I checked them, so I'm still looking here.
Some really great servers are completely empty from time to time. Just saying
My server has been around for more than 2 years and the number of active players ebbs and wanes. It's not uncommon for me to have 0 online (lost quite a few recently to modded servers and mine is vanilla), but we still have the core players that are our rock and we are actively recruiting at the moment. Of course, it's up to you what kind of server you wish to play on. Good luck to you!
I also play on broadsword.us.to-- if you logged on when no one is on I am honestly surprised. Every time I have logged on their has been at least one other player.
There are a few plug ins to avoid griefing but aside from that it is a survival server that is very near vanilla. It is really simple to claim land and their is a server mumble channel so that cooperative gameplay is really easy.
The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
Check out Destiny Network! A great community! they have purgatory which lets you choose your fate by becoming an angel, who have protected land, locked chests and player shops, or demon, they can PVP, grief or be griefed by any other demon. The server also has plain vanilla servers, creative, skyblock, skywars, and kitPVP coming soon!
Like @NatureBlocker said, great servers can be completely empty at times as well ^^ SheepServer is most active from around 14:00-24:00 (GMT 0), people will always choose themselves when to play and thankfully no one can control that
On a normal day we peak at around 10-12 players online simultaneously, at days when events will happen we easily peak at over 20
I have a server you might like called The Cool Table. You can connect to it at minecraft.cooltable.org or the IP: 184.108.40.206
We're a semi-vanilla PVE server. It is you and the other players vs the world. Some people play in big groups and foster communities. Other people just hang out, do their own things and talk to the other people on the server. It is kinda up to you. Just head out into the world and build. Be it on your own or in a bit group of people.
We do use plugins and the latest version of bukkit but they are largely just there for you to protect your land and us to admin the server. We try to modify the base gameplay as little as possible. The only plugin we have that changes gameplay and largely isn't just to protect land and admin the server is TreeAssist.
We usually have 5-15 people online depending on the time of day and day of the week. Server is located in New York. Most users come and go as they please. Our users tend to be a little older. Largely 18+ and if they are younger usually 16+. We don't stop anyone from joining based on age however.
If this sounds interesting to you or anyone else reading this come give us a try. You can read the full rules and information on our website CoolTable.org
