The Forgotten Item

Hey Jammers! 

You know, there are so many items in Jamaa. Have you ever stopped to think about it?

There's always at least one new item a day, sometimes more. That means there are easily over 2,000 different items existing in the game. That's a lot to keep track of.

What sometimes happens if an item is forgotten is that no one buys any because it isn't very eye-catching. Someday when there's only one left, it becomes high-demand and rare. This was what probably happened with the once-rare Train Set: people ignored it and recycled it so much until there was only one left, and then it became highly sought after. A while later, it came back to Jam Mart Furniture and that was the end of that.

Still, sometimes items just go unseen. They might be so unassuming that people just recycle them without a second thought, or don't even buy them in the first place. Sometimes items blend in so much that they just become lost to the sands of time. 

Yes, friends. Maybe you know this item, maybe you don't, but I'm talking about the mysterious Freedom Banner.


Well, at least right now it's called the Freedom Banner. What makes this item stand out is that it used to have a more mysterious name:


It came out on July 1, so many people thought that "council day" was just another name for July 1st or 4th. However, there really is no such thing as Council Day. I wonder if Council Day was a kind of inside joke or small event that took place with AJHQ. 

Another thing that could be related to this banner is the French flag. The banner may just be displaying the main colors of the American flag, but it is also exactly how the French flag looks right-side-up. Hmm... the plot thickens.

I have yet to see a single Freedom Banner in Jamaa since 2012. I'm not saying it was deleted, of course, if you look up "animal jam freedom banner" you can see a couple of YouTube giveaways for one. However, I think that's just because Jammers these days tend to think that every item not in stores is rare somehow, and worthy of a giveaway. I'm not trying to be mean, I'm just saying that that misconception is common. 

I guess it comes down to this: if an item is ignored to the "brink of extinction", does that guarantee that one day Jammers will fight over it, just because there's only one or two left? 

Or is it possible for something to just disappear with no one noticing or caring, just because it's not that eye-catching?

This is starting to be about both endangered animals and items, but what do you think? What will be the fate of these forgotten items?

See you in Jamaa~

  2. What I find ironic is usually these items that no one buys and no one uses become extremely rare and sought after. XD Cool post! What if Council Day is a secret Animal Jam holiday? =O That would be cool.
