RIM + New Rare Items Page

Hey animals! Today is monday, the start of a new week – 
but most importantly, it's Rare Item Monday!

This week's rare is rereleased, and was once in very high demand. The rerelease of this popular item has excited some, but angered many. It's yet another high demand item brought back, therefore deemed unrare... or untradable. 0_0;

But first, just see what you think about it for yourself!


It may not be rare anymore, but at least some newbies can get a new rare. Remember when these were so high in demand people traded betas for these? Yeah. Now nobody really cares about them. :\

In other news relating to the blog, I will create a frequently-updating page about rarity and Rare Items! 

This page will include:

• The current most in-demand items (helpful when trading)
• What items are still rare (helpful for people upset with rare items being rereleased)
• How to work your way up to "rareness"
+ more!

Thanks for reading,
see you in Jamaa!

New Nonmem Den Benefit?

Hey animals! You know how AJHQ has been having some problems with item availability? (Nonmember items turning member and vice versa) Well it's somehow extended to dens, too!


Today my friend Zuchinnii showed me her two small house dens and her one sunken ship. Why is this abnormal? She's a nonmember. I'm really not sure whether this is a mistake on AJHQ's behalf or an actual new benefit, but so far I'm sad to say that the signs point to this being short-lived. By the next update or so, your second nonmem dens will probably get locked up. :(

That's all for now,
have a jamtastic week!

DoomyPanda... RETURNED!

...Well, not really. ^_^ Technically, I was always posting. From the start I was the only one there o.o just switchin usernames around a lot.

What the misleading title really means is that I now play animal jam using the name DoomyPanda! Yaaaaaay! *confetti*

This notice is just so ya know that I still play AJ under the name DoomyPanda (*cough*sendmebuddyrequests*cough*) to stop a lot of the confusion. One part of the confusion that comes into play is people not knowing or being unsure of who the heckie actually makes these posts due to my account switches and whatnot.

But most of all, the most annoying confusion is when I try to tell people who were my friends on DoomyPanda that I switched accounts, where me being unable to type Jam A Grams only adds to the frustration. :\

All in all, I decided to continue using DoomyPanda when being online so I'm not so bored and alone all of the time.

And also, this has any will always be a blog run by only me, unless I change my mind, but chances are I won't.

That is all. ^_^
See you in Jamaa!

Walk-on-Walls Glitch Revived!

...Well, not all of the glitches, but with the introduction of eagles there has been a cool new gravity-defying glitch spotted in Jamaa!

Best part is, it's incredibly simple.

What you need:

• Membership
• Eagle

Step 1: Fly up to a wall with an eagle.
Step 2: Transform into a different animal! It's that simple!

Maybe it will work on the Eagles-only store in Coral Canyons? The only way to know is to find out yourselves, because I can't buy an eagle. 

That's all for now,
vote on my polls and see you in Jamaa! ;D

>:(

So I wanted to send a gift to one of my buddies who hasn't been online in a while, and I clicked the "Add a Gift" button.

Instead of my inventory coming up, THIS was in my face:


Ok, so first nonmembers weren't aloud to get gifts. Next, they can't even send them! What the heckie... >:(

Oh well. I don't have many good items to send so, maybe this is for the best? I admit in the beginning I thought it was unfair that members could send and receive gifts, while nonmems could only give to members. Still, it's yet another limitation. :\

Possible Party?

Hey jammers! I hope you had a great week. 

The new item is sold in Jam Mart Clothing! :)


It may be hard to hold them in place or even put them on because they might just fly away!

New on the D.E., a post answering the question, "why are king cobras called king cobras?"


Go to blog.animaljam.com to view it! :)

I've recently put up a poll asking about a sort of AJ Stream party that I would have at my den. You see, whenever I have had parties, pretty much no one came no matter the amount of comments saying "yes, I'll go." Is it bad luck, not enough publicity, or just a lack in viewers? I don't know, but maybe the poll will answer that question. 

It's to the right sidebar if you want to vote!

That's all for now,
see you in Jamaa!

Item Problems/Glitches + Nonmem Clothing Idea

Hey animals! The new item today is sold in Sunken Treasures in Kani Cove. Did you know "kani" in Swahili (probably wrong, at least according to Google Translate) means "force"?


With the introduction of the Sunken Ship to nonmembers, a lot of random under-the-sea den items have turned nonmember, which is great and all...
...but for how long?

You know when the Graham Matryoshka came out, it was nonmember unlike the other dolls, but soon after it was forced back into nonmembers' inventories as a member item. Also, not giving any hints to AJHQ, but I believe currently the once rare raincloud (sold in the diamond shop) is nonmember now. It will probably change back *sad violin music* but enjoy it while it lasts, nonmems!

In other news, on the Daily Explorer, while it may not be the most recent, a short but interesting article pertaining to the RIM pirate beard was published this week. It talks about a few of the most notable, yet often ignored female pirates.

To all those who think that "pirates are for boys"...


:D

Now for what was promised in the header: a clothing idea for nonmembers!


As you can see, this was worn on one of my horse friends. However, this can be worn on any animal, nonmember AND member.
This is "the creature from the brine," this horse could be masquerading as a mermaid, a selkie, or any bizarre underwater creature you like! Did you know 90% of the ocean is unexplored? Well, now you do. 
You know how I don't care as much for items as for color schemes? This is very color palette based, with only two easily acquirable nonmember items that can both be purchased in Jam Mart Clothing very cheaply. Cheap as in a couple hundred gems. 

As with all of the nonmember clothing ideas I post, this one is completely for you! Just for you, with no need to credit me. You can also use this for inspiration and create a similar animal with a different color scheme. ^^

Well, that's all for now! See you in Jamaa. :)

Oh, and by the way, I'm putting up a new poll later today. Thanx for reading!

Earth Day Info Post :)

Hey animals! Since I can't get onto AJ at the moment, I think I might make another one of those informational posts you miss so dearly. Since it's Earth day, what better time would there be to talk about protecting the environment?

Get something to drink, because this is gonna be a long one. :)

-{}{}{}-

First of all, think about where you are. You are in a town or city, or some type of relatively small community. That small community is inside a larger community: a state, a country, inside a continent. There are seven continents in the world, each home to many, many millions of people, all different and unique. You can't just fit any group into one or a few broad statements. Doing so turns that/those groups of people into objects in your eyes, which is incredibly cruel, to say the least. 

Fun fact: Socotra island is an island home to hundreds of species unique to only that island. Many people believe they look alien because of the immense difference between Socotra island's wild life and for example, what's outside your window.

Look:


All of those continents home to millions and millions of people are all on the Earth, spinning around a big bright sun that is so big you could fit over one billion Earths into it. (If someone had the technology too and the sun was hollow, that is)
Other planets orbit around this sun as well, but all, as far as we know, have only the subtlest signs of life. Probes take pictures, only finding deserts, and frozen, small lakes full of liquid. It's likely that there IS some form of life out there, in fact highly so, but in the planets we know of, stretching out of the solar system, there is not life as lively and vibrant as there is on Earth, in any continent, in any country, state, or in small community. In your family and neighborhood even. Right outside your window.

Earth is like an oasis surrounded by planets of gas and dust. Earth is something special that should be treated kindly, but not all of the time are things treated as they should be.

"What can I do to help? I'm just one of billions of people."

When one person says this, a million or so other do. People disregard trying to help "because a small thing by just one person won't help," but all of that adds up. All of the denying personal importance and denying to help adds up, releasing literal tons of carbon dioxide into the air EVERY DAY, melting the ice caps and putting species, ecosystems in danger. Tearing down trees can kill off species.

Not-so-fun-fact: every 11 minutes, a species goes extinct.

All of the small things to help add up, too.
But the question is,

how do you help?

  1. Don't support large companies that rapidly degrade the environment. In other words, try not to buy things too much from companies that clear forests to make slaughterhouses, or kill and degrade the environment in other ways.
  2. If you can, buy things like food that aren't imported from places far away. Carrying the items from far away to reach you takes massive amounts of gas and releases massive amounts of carbon dioxide, deadly in large quantities. Try to buy from markets around you that sell things produced nearby.
  3. Recycle paper and plastic. Plastic takes billions of years to break down in a landfill, so it's best it's made into something else of use instead of contributing to pollution. Recycle paper too, because it can save trees. Recycling an amount of paper stacked about one meter tall saves one tree, which is actually something great. (Not the exact height, but relative.)
  4. Compost food if you can, which just involves putting inedible or old food into a bucket. Many places have compost bins where you can pour your own compost so it is sent to a farm to fertilize the soil. If you have your own garden, you can use compost for it, as well. 
  5. Don't support destruction of the coral reef. The coral reef is home to many crucial fish and animal species, many that live in such frailty that just the slightest contamination to their home can kill them off for good. So don't throw trash into the ocean, okay?
Fun fact: Having plants inside a home can and will improve the air quality.


I hope you aren't bored to death by now, and I really hope you read it all. ^_^ 

Have a happy Earth Day!

Important Note

NOTICE:

The 1,000th comment contest has been called off because almost no one joined. Maybe we can have better contests in the future?

Thanks for your understanding.

50,000 PAGEVIEWS! :O

Hey animals! Sorry for being gone so long. ^^;

The new item is nonmember, pretty "natural-looking," and is sold in Jam Mart Clothing. I'm sure it will be welcomed with open arms. (Err.. or paws.)


Oooh, pretty. :O Different coordinating shades.

Thanks to you looking at this blog, I have hit a landmark of 50,000 page views and counting! :D *confetti* I never thought I would get so far, but that's because I didn't. YOU did! Yes, you! It wasn't me looking at my blog everyday, it was you, leaving all of your thoughtful comments and learning more about AJ one post at a time. Thank you all so much! ^-^

Sorry for the short post, but I have to go. See you in Jamaa! :)

RIM – Pretty Lavender Collar!

Hey animals! How are you doing? ^_^

New Items


Today is monday, the start of a new week (Duh), which brings Jamaa a rare item, only in stores for one day!
This week's RIM is a leaf collar (or necklace) in a typical RIM shade of dark lavender. It's available in Jam Mart Clothing. :)

It'll be gone fast, so snap it up as fast as you can!

Daily Explorer


GIF credit to AJHQ, of course. RIM posts on the D.E. are now coming with facts about nature. For today's RIM, we learn about plants:

"Plants and trees require two things in order to bud in the spring. A fixed number of ‘cold days’ and a specific temperature.
Days and temperatures vary between species but the count is exact. How they actually know is one of sciences great mysteries.
Notice that I don’t say time.
For example if an oak tree needs 45 cold days, and a temperature of 50 degrees it won’t bloom until it gets all 45 cold days, regardless of temperature. If we have an especially cold December and unusually warm January, the tree may have all of it’s cold days and will bloom early if we hit a warm enough temperature. If it’s a mild winter with not a lot of cold days the tree may not get all of its cold days until April."
The Daily Explorer

Weather and temperature also affect maple tree's ability to produce sap, which is later turned into syrup for human consumption. Maple trees need a specific combination of heat and cold.

This has been a very short post, and I apologize for that. There will be longer posts in the near future!

"Human" Items VS. "Natural" Items

Hey animals! Apologies for not posting yesterday. Something came up.

This new item is certainly surprising (for animal jam, at least.) 

A nonmember bicycle is being sold in Jam Mart Furniture!

New Items


This is completely real and is not a belated April Fools joke! Go to Jam Mart Furniture to see for yourself.
Despite how "revolutionary" this nonmember item is, it is kind of going back on that human-ish route that items seem to be taking a lot more frequently than they used to (not many people like it, too). Well, perhaps "human-ish," isn't the correct word. (if it is a word at all)

For example, masks (beta) are often considered "not human-ish," and are liked because of that, when in reality, many people all over the world make masks and are commonly used in different types of practices. These are very "human," and can easily be compared to what people you know use every day, like the bicycle. People all over the world use bicycles as well.

The word that lots of kids who play animal jam probably mean is "natural looking." Natural would mean fitting in with the scenery in Animal Jam, constructed out of things like clay and feathers. (Like the beta mask has feathers.) Which look like they can be obtained from the scenery in Animal Jam. Things this bicycle is made out of, like steel or rubber, may be hard to come by in Jamaa's environment.

I feel like this is kind of important to know, so I hoped you liked these few paragraphs I wrote. ^^

Nonmember Clothing Tricks


This is the "Artsy Nerdy Panda." This clothing idea goes for a magenta/red palette using only one item. This item, pretty simply, is sold in Jam Mart Clothing for 300 gems. They're the round glasses.

Important News Regarding Contest


I really hope you go enter in the 1,000th comment contest. If no one enters by tomorrow, I think I'll have to call it off.

That's all for now,
see you in Jamaa!

New Item – Elegant Table!

TGIF! I hope your week was better than mine. :\

New Items


This is the color coordinated elegant table, and as you can tell from the ridiculous price, it's sold in Epic Wonders, Coral Canyon.

It's interactive as well! If you click the tray on the far right, a mouse comes out and steals a strawberry. :)

Codes

There is a new code! It's called KAMA and gives you 500 much needed gems. Well, they're much needed in my case. I have close to no gems.

Animal Jam Insiders BOOK!

Hey animals! Some very exciting news has come about! Read more to find out. ;)

New Items


Another golf-themed item. Someone at AJHQ must like golf? Because I never got the impression that any jammers did. 
According to my brother (who is a member), this item is interactive!

Important News!

On to the exciting news...


National Geographic is making a book about Animal Jam! :D
I assume this will be much like those Angry Birds NatGeo books, with nature facts as well as game tips!

NEW NONMEM ITEM ALERT! – ...Golf Bag?

Hey animals! I hope you're having a great week and I hope you have a great today as well. ^_^

New Item

The new item is a bit strange and uncalled for. But it's nonmember!


Golfing... and Animal Jam. I never thought those two would be combined in any way. Nevertheless, it adds some... variety to Jam Mart Furniture.

Daily Explorer


I like how AJHQ is giving less experienced artists a chance. Oh, and just so you know, you have even more chance of getting into the gallery now! New artwork is posted up every single day, giving more people a chance. =^.^=

Nonmember Clothing Idea


This is what I call "The Mechanic." Feel free to use to your hearts content!

What You Need:

Swirly Goggles – April Fools Party

Extras

You may have heard that I will be starting up Buddy of the Month again in April, which is exactly what I plan to happen!

There will be some repeats, but only because I have so little people on my buddy list. You can send a request to my AJ user Quintanna if you want to be my buddy and hang out sometimes. :)

That's all for now,
see you in Jamaa!

New Item – Skateboard

Hey animals! The new item of today is sold in Jam Mart Furniture.


Not that extravagant, but it's cool if you know... you like to skateboard.
I think this is a rerelease, but I'm not too sure.

In other news, a new video about Malayan Tigers has been posted on the Daily Explorer!


What animal would you want to be known for saving? Answer in the comments below! :)

Thats all for now,

Lots of New Jam a Grams + NM Den Trick!

Hey animals! I was writing a letter to my friend, looking through jam a grams, when I saw something seemed... off about them.








It seems like more than just the one "you're invited!" Jam a Gram has appeared. I see AJHQ has edited these to fit in more with the slightly new art style in AJ, but other than that, there's no real reason to change them. I kind of like them, but many people probably do not... How do you feel about them?

And here is a nonmember den trick: the sleeping mat!


Relax on a blanket with your favorite plushie. ^_^

What you need:

• Patched Rug – 350 gems – Outback Imports
• Pillow – 75 gems – Jam Mart Furniture
• Plushie – 5 gems – The Claw

That's all for now,
have a good week!

RIM – Rare Blue Bow!


Hey animals! The Rare Item of this week is sold in Jam Mart Clothing, as normal.


A rare big blue bow. Similar (in all ways) to the Jamaaliday bow, but blue! Sadly, it's members only.

Want to know another thing that is sad? *Sad violin music*

Graham nesting dolls are now corrected to members only!

 If you are a nonmember, it will be moved to your inventory and greyed out so you won't be able to use it. Sad, right? :(

On a better note (I guess), there has been a new post on the Daily Explorer with some cute artwork. :)


Thats all for now,

New Jam a Gram + Item Feature + Adventure Glitch!

There is a new Jam a gram loosely based off of a popular one from beta testing:


There is also a strange new item feature:


As well as an annoying glitch I keep experiencing towards the end of adventures!


I'm kind of able to move but mostly I had no control.


NEW NONMEM ITEM ALERT! – Picket Fence!

NOTICE: A NEW BERRY THE KOALA ENTRY HAS BEEN POSTED! CLICK HERE TO READ ABOUT YOUR THREE FAVORITE PLUSHIES! :)

Hey animals! How has your weekend gone so far? =^_^=

The new item of today is what I like to call a building block item. These are often nonmember (same goes for today) and can be built upon to make cool den set ups! Some examples include making a fort out of those smallish ice blocks that come around every winter (which is near impossible, but you get the point), using shoji screens to create a maze, or making an animal zoo out of bamboo fence! (Which may not be a good idea if there are pandas in your zoo...)

I present to you... *drumroll*

The picket fence!


Sadly, this isn't their default color... but look at how pretty it is! :D
If I had just a few more gems I could show you a nice set up you could do with these.

In other news, explore the world of butterflies in Sarepia Theater with this new video!


Butterflies. It's a pretty broad topic. Maybe instead about the insect butterfly, they forgot to put a space in between "butter" and "flies" and the video is about flying butter instead. 
You never know...
Watch it to find out!

On a slightly more personal note, I don't know what else to include so I'll just leave this screenshot.


Context: I logged onto Chicken Smoothie (which is not about literal chicken smoothies) to find 20 trade suggestions sitting there in my account. I don't even trade that much or have very good pets. Weird... O_O

That's all for now,
Good luck on the egg hunt! :D

NEW NONMEM ITEM ALERT – Patched up Rug!

Hey animals! I hope you could actually read yesterday's post, haha... ^_^;

This type of new item comes out once in a blue moon: a completely new, completely nonmember den item! :D


This is an item sold in Outback Imports in Mt. Shiveer.

...

Kidding, it's sold of course in Kimbara Outback! It comes in almost every color under the sun so you can have whatever color you like and express your personality through it! 

...That is, if you're a member and can change colors of items.

New on the D.E., a new post has been made. It's a video of Tierney Thys releasing some rehabilitating seagulls back into their home! 


Things like these make me so happy. (◠‿◠)

That's all for now,
I hope you had a fantastic day!
