I've been playing on a server with a few friends for about a week. Without any input from me (no changing gamerules or using and console commands), the sun and moon stopped moving through the sky. Grass wouldn't spread to dirt. Killing enemies gave no XP. I didn't know what to do, so I turned on the day and night cycle gamerule. The only thing this fixed was making the moon and sun move again. I have absolutely no idea what I did to freeze time and I have no clue how to fix it. Any help?
Look I don't know why you're insinuating I'm lying on Minecraft Forums in my spare time, I have a problem and I am telling the truth in an effort to resolve it. The gamerule only fixed the movement of the moon and sun. Is there even a gamerule for XP gain or mob drops? If not then this clearly isn't an issue caused by gamerules.
