"Lions roar, eagles soar, Non-Members deserve more!" -Jammer
Hey Jammers! Today I have a little rant for y'all, so if you don't like rants, now is your chance to leave.
Ever since Membership was added into Animal Jam after beta testing, Non-Members and Members have always been at war with each other over who's better and who's more special and stuff like that.
Here is the current chart of Member benefits that you can find on the Membership section of the homepage:
Obviously Members get way more freedom in the game than Non-Members do. Duh, they're MEMBERS! They PAID for the extra freedom.
But don't get me wrong. I most definitely agree when people say Non-Members deserve more.
In the early days of Membership, Non-Members weren't as restricted. They had the ability to send and receive gifts (I think), read chat history, type in free chat mode, etc.
But in later years, AJHQ decided to remove those little features from Non-Members and made them specifically Members-only.
Instead of taking abilities AWAY from Non-Members, they should just ADD abilities for Members. That way Non-Members won't have to suffer as badly.
There are games out there such as Club Penguin that don't treat their Non-Members very fairly, but Animal Jam is not like that. In fact, AJHQ gives Non-Members a lot more freedom than most virtual worlds out there. Let me also point out that I am extremely grateful that Non-Members now get the option of coloring their items. Thank you, AJHQ, thank you! <3
But because you took free chat away from Non-Members, they can't abide by the second amendment of America.
Because you took away the chat history from Non-Members, they can't read old messages from their buddies when they come back from being on BRB.
Because you took away the ability of sending and receiving gifts from Non-Members, they can't feel the love from their friends and pay it forward too.
See what I mean?
What do you guys think about Non-Members? Do they deserve more? Why or why not?
Let me know your thoughts! See ya! c:
