Quitting Animal Jam

Hello Jammers, Arcticstar here. I thought that it was about time that I discussed a topic that has been on my mind for the past few weeks.

As you probably could tell by the title, I will be quitting Animal Jam. The game no longer interests me, and many of my best buddies are also quitting. It seems that the people on Animal Jam have forgotten the true meaning behind the game: To have fun, learn about the world around us, and make friends. Instead, the game has become a chaotic wasteland of scamming, hacking, desperation, and unkindness. This is not the game I have loved. This is not the game I enjoyed.

Through my experiences on both this game and this blog, I have learned many things, and met many wonderful people. I will never forget the day that I checked my email and realized that I had been accepted onto this blog; one could easily say that it was a whole new experience for me.

Never would I have thought when I clicked that first Animal Jam advertisement in November 2013, that I would be opening a door into a world in which I never knew. A world full of wonderful people online, whom of which I will never meet in person or speak to again. It is very sad, really. Some of the most generous, kind, and wonderful people I have ever met were on this game. It seems that all this has had a greater impact upon me than I could ever have imagined.

There have been people who have supported me since the very beginning, and I am grateful for them. So here we are. Thank you to:

  • Pumaa
  • TheSlidoo
  • Mldriver
  • Krazygirl
  • AwesomepandaBunny
  • Misterchunkybuddy
  • Akachip8967 (who I think has been hacked)
  • ShadowCharizard
  • Cutepups522
  • Cloudclaws
  • EternalMyth

The list just goes on... If I were to list everyone, I am afraid that it would take up an entire separate post.

All these people, and countless others, have impacted me in ways they can scarcely imagine. They have shown me kindness, and have been wonderful people to everyone around them. I now speak directly to each of you reading this post: Thankyou for everything, and it was an honour knowing you. You have done great things for me, and for that I am truly grateful.

And so, for the last time:

Happy Jamming.

Thank you all for inspiring me to do my best in all that I do.

Ha! You have been April Fooled! Did I trick you? I hope I did :D

As if I would leave with such short notice! Fortunately (or unfortunately?), you will have to put up with a lot more Arcticstar for a looooooong time! Muha ):D

I just feel so evil right now, it is insane! Heehee... Okay this post may have been a little bit ( a lot) mean... Sorry if I scared you. And if I got your hopes up, (well, you are a bundle of joy XD) sorry to you too!

Anywho, how's about we get on to the REAL post, eh?


Today in the wonderful world of Jamaa, I bring you three returning items: The Wacky Item, The Silly Item, and the Zany Item! These things always used to scare me, to be honest... A falling anvil? An alien abduction? A missile thingie? How on Earth are these things safe?! XD Be sure to pick these items up today in Jam Mart Furniture!


Next, we have some posts from the Daily Explorer that we missed for the past few days:

A fabulous otter wearing the Monday Rare can be seen in Monday's Daily Explorer post! This could make a pretty cool superhero, if you get the items to make more sense... Super Otter! Check this post out right here!

Taken from the Daily Explorer

We also have Tuesday's Daily Explorer post. It seems that there is a new Tierney Thys about how Jellyfish see without eyes! I should really watch this video... I have always wondered how this works! Be sure to check out this post and find out how here!




And now it is time for: THE FACTUAL PART OF THIS POST!!

Our word of the day:

Brouhaha: An uproar or hubbub.

Isn't this just a great word? Just imagine this:

Evil Genius: Finally, I have finished my evil masterplan!
Henchman: There will be a great brouhaha!
Evil Genius: Brouhaha, MUHAHA

Such perfection is hard to achieve!

Our fact of the day:

It seems that many cultures have had silly festivities around Springtime! In fact, the Romans had a holiday called Hilaria (hilarious, right?) in which they celebrated laughter and such. This took place on March 25, which is quite close to April Fools, is it not?

Perhaps this Hilaria holiday was an ancient predecessor for April Fool's Day!

Happy Jamming to you all!

Knight Armor and April Fool's Party

LATE POST I AM SO SORRY! My teachers are making all my assignments due on the day before Spring Break starts (which is on Thursday). And it doesn't help that I was sick for four days the week before. ANYWAYS, let's get on with this rushed post!

The new item today is the Knight Armor! It goes great with the Knight Helmet, however it's member! Hmm.. I guess if you're a non-member, you will have to be creative when making your armor for a knight outfit!


Also when you log into Animal Jam today, there is a small April Fool's joke! I was a bit confused when I opened it up (because today is not April 1st)

With this little joke, you can now go to the April's Fool Party! And, the party is updated with all new items, including a Shark Hat, that already seems to be very popular!



Last but never the least, we have the True or False questions along with a GIF!

True or False: 
Adults have fewer bones than babies do.

And the GIF..

I don't know what's funnier, the fact that the dolphin has grown arms, or that it's wearing a shirt and tie. Either way, pretty hilarious!
That's all for today Jammers! I will see you on Thursday!



Rare Item Monday and Lucky Clovers!

Greetings! Let us move forth and begin this post, shall we?

Allow me to take you back to what happened when I began looking for the new item:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I wonder what AJHQ has for us today... Ah, perfect, it has finally loaded!

Alrighty, first page of Jam Mart Clothing... Nope. Nothing. Moving on.

Hmm, Jam Mart Furniture? Nothing here.

Treetop Gardens? Nope.

Epic Wonders? Nuh-uh.

Bahari Bargains? Not here.

Sunken Treasures? Nothing to see here, move on.

Outback Imports?

Where on Earth (rather, in Jamaa) is this item? 

Wait...

http://blogs.discovery.com/.a/6a00d8341bf67c53ef0168e5dfbd0a970c-800wi/
And that is when I realized:

It is Monday! That means there is a rare item!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In all, it took me about 10 minutes to figure this out. I was evidently not functioning properly this morning! Anywho, to the rare!

Sold for 750 gems in Jam Mart Clothing, I bring you the Rare Horned Helmet! Well this is a... creative colour choice... This item is, again, great for clanning and roleplaying, I find. Not the most popular item, but still really quite cool, I think this is a decent item, and a pretty good rare. If you like it, be sure to buy one today, as this is the first, and last, day that they will be available in stores!


Next, I do not know if you have noticed, but the Lucky Clovers music is now available in stores, and a good thing too - I absolutely adore this particular soundtrack. Get it today for 1 diamond in the Diamond Shop!



And now, it is time for the factual part of this post:

Our word of the day is a weird one. Brace yourselves, for here comes the cousin of Ninnyhammer:

Clatterfart: Someone who chatters about nonsense all the time.

I have no idea what to say... ALEXITHYMIA!

Our fact of the day:

Horses typically live for about 30 years, but many breeds can live up to (and over) the age of 40!

Now that is amazing!

Happy Jamming!

Hey, good to see you are still sticking around. You can contact me at arcticstarjamaa@gmail.com !

Late Post: Knight Helmet, Daily Explorer Stuff, and Jammer Sundae #27

Greetings Jammers, and sorry for the late post! Every time I would try writing a post, I would get interrupted and forced to do something else (that took a super long amount of time). Then, when I would get back, I would be forced to do something ELSE that took a lot of time. Basically, this (very annoyingly) kept happening over and over again, so this post has become SUPER late. Grr.

Today in the land of Jamaa, we have a great returning item. I bring you, the Knight Helmet! This item is quite cool, and is non-member! I find that it looks quite good on owls. Anywho, this item is great for roleplaying, I find. Get one today at Jam Mart Clothing for 450 gems!



Next, we have a great number of posts from the Daily Explorer:

We've got a cool Trading Tips post, which you can check out here



Next, we have an Epic Dens contest which starts (and ends) today! You can enter by taking a screenshot of your den, and sending it in to AJHQ (through Jammer Central. I am definitely entering!
I might do a post about how to enter Jammer Art sometime this month, because I have been asked by a lot of people how to do it. Anywho, the winner gets 3 diamonds! Good luck Jammers, and click here for more information!



Finally, we have an update for the S.T.E.A.M contest! You can check it out here!

Finally, I bring you:




Such beautiful flowers!

Oh, and this feeling too!

Why monkeys? Because monkeys!

Now, for the factual part of this post:

Our word of the day:

Cacology: Bad choice of words.

This is understandable in writing, you know, when you accidentally use a word incorrectly? Now, you know how to express your emotions!

Our fact of the day:

There are more than 12,000 species of ants in the world.

Now, that's only species, not total number of ants...

The real question is... How many ANTS are there in the world?

FUN FUN FUN


I mean...

DUN DUN DUN!!!
