Classic, pre-Trammel private shards are the way to play. I imagine you can find many that are still very active today.
For some reason with really old mmorpgs there's a small cross section of fans who stick with it long after people have abandoned it. It's usually people who are elderly.

I recently started to play it probably 2 weeks ago, I'm enjoying it once I get on but I joined as a F2P player.

I did come from games like WoW, GW2 and other various horrible mmos (korean) but they did give that oldschool feeling back.
