    I should've been making a thread about how removing animals from our farms without our consent at all was indecent, but I'm not. The only thing I'm asking is that can you guys please, just warn us about removing all of our animals the day before you do so? That way, I can kill all of mine and loot from them before it happens, and I wouldn't be so infuriated. Instead, they're all wasted.

    I do not know in which timezone you live but I´ll write down some times in UK time (GMT +0):

    Within the week:
    1am - 1pm --> There are usually about 60 people on Sb since everyone in Europe is asleep/ at school. I don´t remove animals often during that time (I´d say I never do)
    1pm - 6pm --> Within that time everyone comes back from school or other activities. The amount of players increased fast. Let´s say now we have about 150 players online. That´s when I start to remove animals often since a lot of players also mean a lot of lag because of what they are doing. Buying items in the shop, mining fast, spam clicking anything, animal spawners, huge farms etc.
    6pm - 11pm (or midnight) --> The amount of players does not really change. The later it gets the more the players leave to go to bed. For removing animals counts the same as above.

    On the weekend:
    9am - 1pm --> some players wake up really early, others sleep longer. The amount of players within that time is not too high and I don´t really have to remove animals.
    1pm - 2am --> I can´t really say anything about that time. The player amount may be between 80 and 180 players. I do remove animals quiete a lot. Mostly in the evenings.

    You can´t really count on the times I just wrote down but it shall be a bit of a guideline ;)

    Interesting, but I'm a little upset that it has to go this way.

    I can´t do anything else. If it is lags I do everything to prevent it.

    So you remove everyone's animal farms to reduce lag? It will take many time to recover and start their farm again.

    To be honest, I would rather suffer from the lag than to have all of my animals gone with no leather in my hand.

    It reduces lag by a 15% or 25% it depends.
    I'm going to do a Thread about this, to help some of you.

    Villager spawners (which you could buy from another player, maybe), or heal zombie villagers (splash potion of weakness and a golden apple).
