    Implement the ability to toggle spawners on and off.
    The spawners will physically remain in place and count towards your island limit but will not be able to spawn mobs.

    Why?
    Most people who have mob grinders do not remove spawners from them when not in use.
    Likely because; they take time to manually remove, fear of losing spawners (have a tendency to fly away) and the 30sec cooldown when redeploying then.
    Around 75% of my own spawners are running inefficiently right now.

    According to Spork’s reply to this, mob spawning uses approx 5% of server resources, plus the mob drop entities being processed by redstone machines.
    Could be implemented via a new command or through a lever attached to spawners (acting as a toggle).

    Pro:
    • Sizeable performance improvement
    Con:
    • Implementation cost

    If something like this already exists, let me know!

    Support. It would be great to have such feature implemented and will be easier for people with multiple/big grinders considering the time consuming cool down of the /spawner command.

    I support this. I also like that this will have a cost. Great idea.

    5% is a lot if you think about it as a whole, but not only would this bring performance benefits, it would be helpful for players with large grinders too. I can't find any other reasons why this would negatively impact the server, it's just whether it's a) possible to do and b) going to take too much of the developer's time to do. Hands down, if it's not too hard to implement then I don't see a problem with adding this.
    Support.

    Support this would be nice although you could just have glow stone with a block in front of it and use a piston to move the block out of the way. This would change the light level and keep mobs from spawning. This also wouldn’t be that hard to build

    Full support, I agree with the implementation cost, but maybe it could also be a perk for those with ranks? ;)

    support. love the idea. some people's computers aren't happy when too many mobs buildup in one place too. also just neat to be able to do it
