Use influences appearance
'Entering' a virreal should ideally alter the appearance of the virreal also for future visitors (like a natural trail). Or to put it mildly; use should not go unnoticed.
You would want the same effect as a crowd that draws attention. Of course, it shouldn't cause jams or affect the service, but when you're there you want to feel that your part of something. This goes beyond list rankings, top referrals or digg-counts, because those are gone as soon as you click the referring link.
