Top Ten Reasons to Hate Animal JamBlueTopazIceVanilla
The Top Ten
I play Animal Jam for recreational and educational purposes. There are great facts about animals that I learn because of National Geographic. Many people don't come on there for learning. Also, in the pillow room (a hangout area in the game), people always tell others to adopt (as roleplaying) them. That's just weird. - PhoenixAura81
Yeah, all people care about is mating,
rares, and looks. They don't act like its educational
I remember going to the exhibits (whatever they're called) and being bored out of my mind. What kind of 6-10 year old wants to spend time reading a sign about whales when there are cooler things to do, like go down a slide or hang out with friends?
Just because it comes from Nat Geo does not automatically mean it's educational. Instead of, "_______ are amazing animals with tons of cool survival skills! " it's "Buy this striped/spotted/shaggy piece of clothing so you can look like _____! "
Stuff like that draws the attention from learning to clothes and apappearances. Even then, some clothes aren't related to animals in any way, shape, or form, which is even worse! - BlueTopazIceVanilla
Books, stuffed animals, Sidekix, video games, hoodies, hats, mobile apps, you name it. Every idea that will make them a little extra has been done twice. - BlueTopazIceVanilla
NO THEY don't. don't HATE ON ANIMAL JAM. IT MAY BE ONLY PARTLY EDUCATIONAL, BUT ITS STILL A GREAT GAME.
The only thing that I learned was that only looks matter, and if you are not paying, you are apparently "ugly" now. You really can't trust anyone there, unless they're your siblings or real life friends. Your "buddies" will guilt trip you and beg you until they brainwash you into becoming a member and getting them the scrap they wanted. Now, it's best if kids want to learn about the world, if they just GO OUTSIDE and climb a tree or something. If you live by a lake or river or pond, throw pebbles and look for rollie polly bugs! Saying "Animal Jam taught me that the Japanese Spitz is the best dog ever" isn't learning about anything but crappy opinions. Did they learn why stonefish are extremely dangerous? No. Do they know that black and yellow printed spiders are venomous? No. Animal Jam is basically just a game where you have free time and waste money on because you earned it. The majority of people playing whine about how they are so poor and broke and have no money to buy ...more - Puppytart
The only thing it educates you about is sex.
I don't know if it's because I haven't played in 2 years, but I don't remeber anything significant I learned from playing AJ. Animal Jam is basically Fantage with animals. All you do is change clothes and talk to friends, like every other children's MMORPG.
If any parent is reading this right now with a kid who plays Animal Jam, I want you to ask your kid what exactly did they learn from AJ. Their answer will probably be along the lines of "Blue goes best with yellow, but only at wolf parties. Or else it's tacky." - BlueTopazIceVanilla
I'm pretty sure 10 to 11 year kids don't read any of the facts or stuff. It's only if you're right beside your parents who are like, "Wait, wait. Let's read this." All that matters is, "please TRADE ME FLOWER CROWN" or "U are a cute girl." At least that's what matters to MOST people.
I remember playing at the Arcade for hours and getting only a couple hundred gems. - BlueTopazIceVanilla
I do like this game, but the chat system is rigged at best. Sometimes it's slow and can do small bursts of letters when I type "too fast". - PhoenixAura81
People act like they are going to have a heart attack if their kid see the word "stupid". And even IF someone says that, you can always block them. Unlike other sites, AJ's report system actually works. - BlueTopazIceVanilla
I hate how I have to type so slow so aj can read my words. It takes a long time and sometimes it's not what I'm saying. For example:
What I actually typed: Let's go to sarepia forest and roleplay!
What they put in: Ltts gotto sarrepiaa forst nn rlply
It gets old pretty quickly, and the worst part is I have to type the whole flipping thing over again. The chat is so laggy at times that I wonder if they're actually trying to do something about it. When I'm with a buddy, and they say something and expect me to answer, I can't right away because of this stupid chat! It gets censored even for the littlest thing, and gets laggy so easily. The lagging needs to stop!
I was talking to my friend and I said “I’m am going to search up something quickly. I’ll be back” and it said that I shouldn’t say that because it may upset someone or get me in trouble. What the heck, did animal jam think I was going to search up the urban dictionary or something.
I hate how you have to cycle through a list of names. JUST LET US CHOOSE! Someone old enough to know a cuss word wouldn't be playing the game in the first place, so why bother? - BlueTopazIceVanilla
Except for the usual clothes (and the occasional animal) it is never updated. - BlueTopazIceVanilla
You can do that if you have free chat.
This is kind of a crappy reason, so I put it at the bottom.
Once, I tried to tell someone how long I was in a biome and they wouldn't let me type it! - BlueTopazIceVanilla
You can just spell the numbers
It could be 16 people, and there will be as much lag as 50. - BlueTopazIceVanilla
I like AJ, but all people ever do is trade.
Yes this is very sad. Many people only care about arctic wolves, because of "betas" and "rates". They become majorly overrated, that it's sad. I mean there are tons of other cool animals!
Once I was playing, and then this pervert was like “ come to my den, BOYS! ” I stupidly snuck into their den to see what they would do the people who went to their den. The person who invited boys to her den started doing really inappropriate things. I got out in time so I wasn’t sexually harassed. I didn’t even get to report them because I got out to fast.
AJ has multiple animals, while CP only has penguins. - kawaiihappycandy
Club penguin is a great game and animal jam is ripping it of.animal jam is a bad version of club penguin
That's the evilness of membership, kids.
Remember to NEVER buy a membership, because you just wasted 16 pound!
This is one of the most annoying things about Animal Jam. People like this add lag to the already lag-ridden servers and you can't find your way to the store. - BlueTopazIceVanilla
I agree to many scams
I hate how every kid these days are getting scammed.
I liked it better back then, when rares weren't a thing
They just take normal store bought items,
and put an ugly combination of colors.
Ugh, R.I.Ms suck! - DijaUnicorn
They always are angry just because you tell the truth
If you don't do/ wear what someone wants you to do. someone will bully you for not doing the thing they want you to do. They will say " I WANTED YOU TO ________! Then they will probably report you for nothing.
I hate how if you change your user, later you hate it,
but then you can't change it back.
