Ahem :Adjusts papers:
So, Lizards. I know most of you are like, pretty good at AJ, but this is for those who aren’t.
:Record scratch: Wait! Why do they call it “_ 101” Why 101? Why not 100 or 102?
And why 101 Dalmatians?
But I digress.
So, Animal Jam is complicated, so this is almost like a dictionary. If I missed anything, let me know so I can add it 🙂
(I am excluding text speech, which is something commonly used in Animal Jam)
HD- It stands for headress, a clothing item, which was sold for Thanksgiving a few years ago, but it was removed because people thought it was racist. I don’t really think that’s the case, but this is about facts not opinions. Anyway, here’s a picture of the headdress in most colors:
Spike: A spike is a spiked collar, which comes in an abundance of colors. There are a few types including (and limited to), rare, which literally is just a spiked collar with a rare tag. The different colors have different levels of rarity. This type can either be long (which is like the one pictured above, it has longer points, with shorter spikes in between. It is the rarest type of spike), or short (which has shorter points, and is slightly less rare). There are diamond shop spikes, which are spikes with a diamond tag. These are much less rare than the rare spikes. Oh, and there are a few types of these too. The original, which is the first spike that was sold in the diamond. This type is only long, and has a few colors. There a few other types of diamond shop spikes, but those are, quite frankly, pretty ugly (except a select few), and less rare than the original ones. Oh, I forgot to mention spiked wrists. They’re basically exactly like spikes, except in wristband form.
Bow- A bow and arrow. This item is given out during the Jamaalidays as a gift, and comes in a few different colors. The nonrare ones aren’t super rare, but the rare variation of this item is somewhat. There is also a neon bow, which is just a bow… but it’s neon.
Beta- An item released during the beta testing stage, in 2010. Some people say any item that isn’t in stores is beta, which is incorrect, also, if it has the world “beta” in the name, it isn’t beta. lol
JAG- Short for Jam-A-Gram.
Scale or Scan- Means scam, although AJHQ unbanned the use of the word scam for people with free chat.
AJHQ- Animal Jam headquarters, which is basically anyone who works on the game.
Non-Member/NM- Someone who doesn’t have membership.
Member- Some who has membership.
Rare- An item with the “Rare” tag on it.
I feel like these are the basic terms, if I missed anything, let me know 🙂
