Accounts can be DELETED! (Important)

(FOR THE IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT AJ ACCOUNTS, SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST)

Hey Jammers! I know I've been really inconsistent with my posting, and I've gotta apologize about all of that. I have a lot of homework, and while I do have some free time I need to learn how to use it more effectively for stuff like blogging. I'll get used to all this soon, but for now it's Friday! That means I'll definitely be posting today (lol I already am) and over the weekendDuring that time I'll figure out a strategy to make my posting schedule less muddy.

Now, onto the news. Yesterday we got a rare double update– two update weeks in a row! This update follows what I'm guessing will be a "Night of the Phantoms tradition" where the phantoms vandalize the Jamaa Journal with their creepy goo.

See for yourself:



Being a double update, there isn't a lot of new stuff so a lot of the following pages are just filler. But there does seem to be a new item set!




No nonmember items yet, but from the picture in the Jamaa Journal I have a pretty good guess of which one will be. The gear-patterned rug is the most boring item so we can assume that it will be the only out of the set for all Jammers. Kind of a shame because the Steampunk Parlor is what I voted for. :(

All the rest of the Jamaa Journal is filler:





The phantoms remind me of tiny children who want attention. Maybe we should give them some candy instead of hoarding it all ourselves... :(

Here's a little glitch that happened shortly after the update. Everyone's animal name was changed to their username!




The way to go back to normal is by clicking your animal picture and closing it.

Before I go, I just learned something on the Daily Explorer. Apparently it's now possible to delete your accounts!



...And just so you know, NEVER click the "Disable Web account" button on the parent dashboard. That used to just temporarily lock your account, but now it completely deletes your entire account.

I learned that the hard way. I had my storage account disabled back when it just temporarily removed access, but today I checked and my storage was completely 100% deleted. Luckily, there wasn't anything so important on there that I'd wanna protect.

Yeesh... the more I think about it, the more I realize how much I dodged a bullet by forgetting to lock my main account the last time I logged on. :O

That's all for now. Keep your accounts safe and I'll answer any questions in the comments!

  1. That's odd that your account is gone because earlier I locked all my accounts nothing happened when i just logged on now.

    Maybe it was a different button or something? Since deleting your account shouldn't be so easy and come with no warning.

    I actually just checked daily explorer and I think it wasn't an update just a reminder because to delete your account you still have to email them.

    1. Talking about how to temporarily disable an account and then saying stuff about a permanently deleted account without transitioning from "disable" to "delete" is pretty confusing. My storage account is still permanently deleted/locked with no way to go back so I have no idea how that happened!

    2. Yeah, I agree, it's really confusing. Well sorry about your storage, that sucks that it's just disappeared.

      Delete
  2. I personally think that a temporarily disabled account is much better than a deleted account.

  3. Uhhh...I lock my account every time I log off. Ahhh! I can't have my account taken away again! A few months ago, someone stole it, and changed the parent email, and took all my rares! I am NEVER locking it again. Well, you HAVE to email AJHQ to get an account deleted. I've had 2 storages deleted on purpose.
