A Letter From AJHQ

Hey Jammers! ^-^

Guess what? :o

About two weeks ago I submitted a bunch of random, inspirational howls in Jammer Central, and one of them was featured!

That means I got a howl plaque in the mail from AJHQ! :D


I have more than one howl plaque, but it is such an honor to receive one!

If you'd like to know how you can submit a howl for a chance to win a howl plaque, watch this informational video here:


Have a good day, everyone!

That Creepy Alien

o.o

Did you know that there's an alien hiding in the spaceship in the Sol Arcade?

Sometimes you can see him peek out of the hole, as shown here:


RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!

JAMAA IS BEING TAKEN OVER BY INTERGALACTIC CREATURES!

Teals is Quitting!? (RANT -- READ AT YOUR OWN RISK)

Hello there!

I try not to post rants on this blog, but this just has to be said.

Some of you might know that a fairly well-known YouTuber who goes by Teals is quitting.

Here is the link to her video explaining why she is leaving the Animal Jam community:


This is causing all sorts of drama. :/

I understand that Teals wants to quit, and that's totally fine with me. I hold nothing against her. I know that we all have to quit at some point for different reasons.

One of my biggest complaints about it, though, has nothing to do with Teals; it's how Aparri reacted to it.

Don't get me wrong. Aparri is a relatively likable YouTuber who produces videos that most people find entertaining.

But I was outraged when I read the comment he left for Teals:


It seems to me that Aparri most likely did not watch the full video. Teals did mention that one of the main reasons she was leaving was because of drama and how unstable the AJ community is. On the other hand, she mentioned several more reasons, such as how she felt like producing videos was more of a chore than a hobby, and how she's become bored of the game itself.

Aparri, I don't hate you, but you really need to learn your facts. -.-

Another thing that annoys me is how people are begging for Teals to stay, when she made it clear she wasn't staying.

YOU GUYS, TEALS MADE HER DECISION!

She probably doesn't CARE if your hearts are broken! I know that seems a little bit cruel, but you've just gotta realize that people move on and we should respect that!

Anyway, there you have it. That's my rant for the day.

I hope you take my words into consideration.

New Jam-A-Gram System!?

Hey Jammers! As you probably already know, today is another update day.

In this update, not much is new. Sure, polar bears have returned, the seasonal Special Delivery adventure is back, and it is now proven by AJHQ that goats are indeed the next animal to arrive in Jamaa.

But there IS a new Jam-A-Gram system!


In some ways, this system is actually quite useful. You can easily see Jam-A-Grams that are hidden way back in your mailbox, and more effectively choose designs for your Jam-A-Grams.

But, then again, in my opinion, the layout is a bit bunched together. I feel like all of the buttons are crammed into one small area, whereas on the other Jam-A-Gram system, the buttons were spread out. Not to mention it's also rather laggy.

Anyway, you can also vote for which animal you would like to see next AFTER the goats. The three choices are ostriches, sloths, and falcons. I personally chose ostriches, but sloths would be cool, too. Falcons look like a mix between the owls and eagles.


And finally, here are a few funny things I overheard while traveling and exploring Jamaa:



I wonder what a fried strawberry would taste like. o.O

HAVE A VERY MERRY 1/21/16!

How to Go Back to the Beta Days! (2016)

Hey Jammers! I discovered a super cool way on how to time travel into the past and visit the beta times of Animal Jam, and I've kept it secret ever since. Now, since I love y'all so much, I will be revealing that secret! ^.^

Keep in mind that you may not log in to your AJ account. Sorry! :c But you can still look around the old home screens and what not. :)

Step 1: Search "wayback machine" and click the first link that pops up.

Step 2: In the search box, type in the URL for Animal Jam (www.animaljam.com) and click "browse history".

Step 3: Click on a date somewhere between 2010-2011.

Step 4: Now you are in beta! ^-^ Technically beta was only during 2010, but 2011 is often called "beta" too.

I hope you enjoyed this post! If you'd like to see the video version of it, here it is:


See you later! :P
