sheep farms

Could a member of staff tell me why this server doesn't allow sheep farms? With a passive mob limit/chunk they are very easy to stop getting out of control. I use large amounts of wool, and this server is the only one I've come across that doesn't allow them. Please don't tell me to use sheep spawners as that is not an answer for me, they do not supply the amounts I need.

I think it's because of limited entity spawn.
People make big sheep farm's for unlimited supply of wool. They breed them, but don't kill.
The more sheep the better for you, yes? And other people do the same.
But now think about it this way:
Because of that mobs will stop spawning. Why? Because the server have a limit of spawning monster's and farm animal's.
I don't remember it happening on here. But I did see it happen on other server's.

It's nothing to do with limited entity spawn. You can set the passive limit on any chunk to stop massive farms, the limit being 16/chunk I was told (by a member of staff), yet my sheep start to vanish in a chunk that only has 2 sheep. I'm under an ocean to cut the spawning of other passive mobs and the farm is in my town, with hostile mobs turned off. This can't be right. I build dirigibles and they can take 10's of thousands of wool blocks, but obviously not on this server.

Then why do the sheep keep vanishing? I breed in individual chunks I start getting 4-5 sheep in each chunk and they then either vanish or I get left with 1 sheep in it's pen. Please explain why.

There is a max-mobs per chunk/radius setting.

Just an information regarding the limit stated up there; It counts all mobs including hostile mobs down in caves below the farm etc. So make sure to light it all out to prevent them from despawning.

Could we know what this is please? I have different colour sheep in different chunks so they wont interact with each other. If it's being done on a radius. could you make it just chunk based instead?

Did you not read my original post? There are NO hostile mobs in the chunks as the farm is in my town, plus it's under an ocean so no other passive mobs will spawn.
