The True Meaning of Animal Jam

     Rares play a major role in Animal Jam. The game was actually designed for 7 year olds, and teenagers play the game. Animal Jam was supposed to be for friendship and fun, and rares just ruined the entire game. Thanks to rares, there is scamming and hacking, and Animal Jam should really ban sending AND trading, and make ALL items come back in store, for rares just make your animal look cooler. Let's say you're new to the game and almost all rare people look down on you and will not buddy you unless if you send them a good rare. All items are rare, except some are less rare than others. The fewer the item, the rarer it is. Now, this causes a lot of problems; because of people's greedy hearts, they go and scam for rares. I understand now of why some Jammers may want to make the decision to scam. Who wants to feel left out? I don't. It's not exactly the scammer's fault, but is the whole judgement of the game. Rares and more rares. Jammers have gone mad over these pixels. You may want some rares because you want to look cool. I finally realize this: these rares are worth nothing! They are just pixels to make you more popular in a game! Go enjoy what Animal Jam is really about instead of worrying about rares, because that will just let you down. YOU should think about your own self being rare, and block all players that won't buddy you, as it may cause even more trouble for you going through all this drama.

  1. Well, my friend was struggling, and was about to quit Animal Jam just because people were treating her poorly because she didn't have any rares at all. In her inventory, there was like nothing! So I thought it was a silly reason to quit Animal Jam.

    I think AJ should be about learning about animals, not rares! My cousin plays this game and he isn't rare OR a member, he just plays for fun! I hope people will come out of their greedy selves and realize the game's for fun.

    1. Exactly. You're aren't supposed to be rare, you're just supposed to have fun. People who pick on others because of either they aren't rare, or a member, their called BULLIES :O " Big Shocker! "

    4. PPL ATTENTION I JUST FOUND OUT THAT AJ IS CLOSING IN 2016 BECAUSE PARENTS THINK THAT HACKING AND SCAMMING IS BAD FOR THE LITTLE KIDS THAT PLAY THE GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS IS NOT A JOKE!!!!!!!!!!!! ;(

    5. No, animal jam is not shutting down in 2016. On the daily explorer Ajhq had announced that they are NOT shutting down and that they will release play wild.. (By the way, it is already released) You don't have to worry! Although, Animal Jam WAS on the news like in 2012 or 2013 because of a mom complaining that animal jam is a inapropriate game due to the chat filters i think. But overall, it is not shutting down. So don't worry!

  5. Rares are just stupid pixels that people fight and scam each other to look cool. Very recently I was scammed by Mon222key who has also been seen doing 'it' in jamaa. Personally, I think that it's fun having some items rarer than others, but scamming each other and boasting about them is horrible. I have quite a lot of rares, but I never brag about them. I think everyone should be the same. I also think it should be easier to get rares, because new people will need to trade items to get them, but at the beginning they only have common items and none of the items sold at shops have high rarity either. So they have to wait till there is an affordable item on Rare Item Monday. AJ, STOP ENCOURAGING JAMMERS TO FEEL MORE IMPORTANT IF THEY HAVE RARES!!!

    2. Well, i have been scammed by Carlykim. Report this horrible, no good jammer! I totally agree with you, but it isn't Ajhq's fault! It's the crazy little jammers who think that Animal Jam is about scamming and hacking for just a little item that isn't even that important! Animal Jam is made for everyone no matter how old you are... but look at what's happening. Scamming and hacking is just what Animal Jam's made for now. Ajhq needs delete rares off the scammer's accounts and see how they would respond. They should also take their trading and gifting away.

  6. rares are worth an animal, and an animal is 1000 gems, which is worth won diamond, and it goes on, so when you get a rare you could have got a animal like ..... a koala or a bunny or even the new animal ( deers )

  8. I have quite a lot of rares... I don't scam, and I'm not like most people where they're just greedy about them and stuff, like, I give rares to people who don't have any or new jammers and stuff :) And I'm not all about the rares like a lot of people, I like to just have fun with my buddies and go to parties and stuff too.

  10. Whoa, you read my thoughts. People think they're SO awesome and cool with all their rares, but guess what!? IT"S A PIXEL. CONGRATULATIONS "Rare" PEOPLE, YOU OWN PIXELS! LET'S HAVE A PARTY! Yeah. See how pointless pixels are? *sigh* People have gotten (excuse my language) SO mouse-brained these days. Focus on what really matters: the friend on the other side of the screen's feelings. :T But that''s from a person who's been on both sides of the fence.

  12. I believe this. I have a lot of rares but I didn't scam for them! One time my friend scammed my pink elf tail armor. I was so mad. But it didn't mean that much because I could just buy it again!!! I don't care about rares that much. Everyone have fun and jam on!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I only want long black spikes because it'll look good with one of my outfits. I don't care if they come out for rare item Monday, but lots of people will be really mad. It's a GAME. And someone scammed my two rarest items so now I probably won't be able to get a short wrist. Idiots, the lot of 'em.

  17. I agree 100%. I have a feeling that 90% of people that play Animal Jam are scammers, or at least it feels like that. Ever since I got my rare claw scammed, at the end of my videos I say "be a jammer, not a scammer!". It's the least I can do. Most of my friends that play have gotten things scammed (spiritjcole, 2 short wrists; idk about others lol). So if you scam and you're reading this, THINK BEFORE U ACT )=T.

    BE A JAMMER, NOT A SCAMMER!

      I only like rare spikes because they go good with some of my outfits, but i'm not spike/rare crazy like a lot of people i've seen. Scamming to get rares and spikes is messed up...

  23. I enjoy having rares, and I am pretty sure not everyone would be happy if everything was in store, but honestly, aj is not about rares. These people need to stop bullying poor non members that only have necklaces or whatever. I wish all the people who bully, scam, and hack would go away. BE A SCAMMER NOT A JAMMER
