We Can't 'Bring Back Beta'

Click here for past jamaasian posts.

 Hey jammers. Many may have over-thought the goal of the Jamaasian Movement recently, and some hate the Jamaasian Movement for these made-up goals. This post is to set everything straight, and hopefully outline what I was hoping to do in our future. I'd love to hear opinions and ideas.
The Jamaasian Movement is about naming the shamans. That's our first goal. It's still in progress. With the naming of the horse, penguin and fox shamans it appears we're really making a difference. The stand is not over though, we still need to tell AJHQ the unnamed giraffe shaman matter. Do you agree?
If you'd like to contribute to the naming of the shamans click here. Even those who've already submitted their words to AJHQ could do it again, I certainly will. We can't give up until they are all named! Without support this will die, I need your help.
The Jamaasian Movement is NOT about bringing back beta. We simply can't bring back beta - it was a  short testing period during the summer of 2010. It's gone. No matter how much we want it, beta will never return. Only creative elements of beta can come back. We can only look to the future of Jamaa.
Some may say - "It's just a game." It IS an online game, but it's also an escape. An escape from the everyday world for over six million around the world. A fun place for all ages to socialize and just have some simple fun. The problem is, the fun is getting too simple. Too easy. Too normal. Gems, tickets, rares.
We're losing our creativity; the stories and history of Jamaa are disappearing. The game is losing it's depth. Do we want Animal Jam to be like all the other games out there? Do we want another ordinary game? Isn't imagination a key part of Jamaa?
I hope you stuck with me through this wordy post, I know it probably isn't what you came to AJS for. Thanks for all support to the Jamaasian Movement, happy jamming.

  1. I support the Jamaasian Movement no matter if we are making small goals. I honestly do think AnimalJam is turning into a regular game. There's no creativity behind it at all. I agree, the fun is getting too simple. Last year was a lifetime for me, it felt--well, creative and fun! Now AJ is getting lazy...everything is too easy. But we can make a change--and bring back the way Jamaa should be, by supporting the Jamaasian Movement.

  2. Snowy... I agree. I check your blog everyday even if I don't get on animal jam.
    Animal Jam was a fun game to play... But I quit (for now) because it is getting boring and old.. There are not many new things to do on AJ any more.
    I wish they stuck with their original plan to make AJ have some adventure in it and to make it more fun and learn about the Shammans and nature.

    1. Yes. I still play, but not like I used to, every day... It's just… there's nothing to do. I mean, you can play games, make clans, whatever, but that gets old too. If AJ had stuck to its original path and goal, imagine what it could be like now!

    2. im mad i loved beta AJHQ needs to try and bring it back BTW i want the spike collor to be a mouthly member gift again

    3. @Kool Kaliey...
      Spiked Collars will never come back as a member gift. They might bring out GOLDEN collars, but never regular collars. If you work really hard, someone might trade you. I got one for a green heart locket in December. Good luck trying to get one!

      Like Wolf29 said, beta was a testing time. It would be nice though. No rares = No Scammers, No Begging. No Hackers. No dating. Not to forget more Jamaasian and wilder! Also, for the "Haha!

    7. I agree with you so much.I loved beta. I'd do anything to get beta back.

  4. I don't know, maybe I am thinking dumb right now, but maybe we could bring back beta. When it was beta, it was testing to see if kids liked it, and they did! If they didn't Animal Jam wouldn't be here today. So, Animal Jam didn't need to change that much. Crystal Sands, human items. I don't know. Yes, I know they need to change it up a little so we don't get bored, but they changed it a whole bunch! They are making it Human Jam not Animal Jam! So, yeah. What do yeah think? I think we can do it! Yeah, let's go! Thanks!

    2. Well they could do something to see if kids liked it, but the Jammasian Movement isn't about that. And anyway, Beta was to test Aj out, not to see if kids liked it (at least to some extent).

    3. yeah.... they sent me an email when i complained. It said that they put beta up to see if kids liked it and they did. And? It has changed alot. I started AJ to get awau frm the real world. Now it IS the real world!

  7. Snowyclaw I think you are right. Even though I only joined a year ago, I think it would be more fun if it was more like beta. I say that because everything I've heard about it makes the old animal jam sound better than what it is today. When I joined, it was a lot better than it is now.

    1. I know, right! I joined in September, and it was so fun! After I've been a member for almost a year and acquired a bunch of rares(It was mostly member gifts that I had gotten..), It didn't become so fun anymore.. I had played AJ to get away from human life, but now it's sorta turning humane.. I would and wouldn't be surprised if humans were added as playable "animals"...

  9. i agree snowy, beta is not going to come back. i'm tired of those who do not apply the true meaning of beta to this. so to make this even clearer, after playing many beta stages in many games like club penguin (which was once called penguinchat) and pottermore (still in beta), i will explain. here are the two most basic things to explain about beta
    -BETA IS A TESTING PERIOD FOR A GAME.
    -IT WILL NOT COME BACK.
    we need to face this. beta wasn't THE PERFECT AJ. you can't change the past anymore. and aj, like all online games, will eventually be changed completely. take club penguin for instance. from penguinchat to a huge full blown game, here we have it. its completely changed.

    -AJ beta only had barely half the lands we have now.
    -many people want beta to come back, because they suffer from rare-greed.
    -some nonmembers want beta to come back because everything was nonmember back then.

    would you like me to explain WHY everything was nonmember to clear some of this up?
    -beta mode had almost no updates, meaning little money was needed to keep the site going.
    -membership money goes mostly to aj to keep aj running and to fund the updates
    -some membership money goes to save big cats and the wild.

    No, snowy's reasons are not stupid. its not "beta being gone" that makes aj worse, its the creativity being sucked out of it.
    you can't keep crying about a false reason and a past thats never resurfacing again. you need to find the true reason, the one that will make it come back, and hack away at the obstacles.
    From wertyui125 to meowlive, from meowlive to nyanstar, and finally from nyanstar to skyfyre, i've realized many things about this.
    We need to focus on something other than beta. beta isn't coming back. face the truth, even if its horrible or stupid.

    Life can be very very stupid.

    I support the Jamaasian Movement.

  10. I support the Jamaasian Movement. I agree with Snowyclaw completely. I don't care if the goals we're making are ant-sized. I'm going to help to the end. Whether is sweet or bitter. Or both. Snowyclaw is right. Beta is GONE. Forever. Face it. Sure, they could bring back the stuff from beta, but they could never change the lands back. They and we can never go back. And I guess there isn't much to say. Just believing in helping with this is all I want to do.

    CAN WE NAME THE GIRAFFE STATUE?
    WE CAN!!!
    CAN WE MAKE SMALL GOALS AND STILL ACHIEVE THINGS?
    WE CAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. a agree with snowyclaw. look beta is WAY LONG GONE now so face it it's never coming back and also i agree on everything nyanstar/skyfyre said we can still have the giraffe statue and we can make small goals and still achieve things but also what about bringing the shamans back on aj so we could talk to them or whatever they did when they were in the beta time and also IT NOT STUPID. yes,yes i know what some of you jammers like yourself kool k. you WANT beta becuz of all the cool stuff that was never for member was nm and im a nm too and i felt that way when some said they were in the beta time but what about aj now? i mean LOOK AROUND U LOOK AT WHAT HAPPED TO CRYSTAL SANDS and back then it was like what a beach would look like without dumb slides and look at the cruies ship party its like humans r taking everything from what wild life would look like to some stupid human land we want old aj back and i want back the old crystal sands without the slides + im on this movement with snowyclaw ~ from maxicyspirit and my friend darkowls ~

  19. I have read all of the Jamaasian Movement posts and comments and the history of Jamaa, but some jammers are getting the wrong idea. I'm not saying that to be mean, they just don't fully understand the Movement. The first thing is beta. Some jammers think that animal jam should either go back to beta, or be more like beta because:
    -Everything was non member
    -Jamaa's history was still being learned of
    -It was more animal themed
    -And it was just better
    I personally never joined during beta, but it seems great. More simple and animal themed. But beta is a testing period. It eventually goes away, and never comes back. The other thing is humanity. It does seem ridiculous, with cruise ships, flip-flops, and lawn chairs, but sites do change. And even though Animal Jam is moving away from its original idea, gaming sites eventually change. Other Jammers think the Movement is to abolish all humanity from Jamaa. Now I agree that AJ is having more and more human items, but that isn't the point of the Movement at all. First of all:
    -AJHQ right now just cares about getting more players
    -Games change
    Even though AJ may become a ridiculous human game, that isn't the point of THIS particular Movement. (Hint hint Snowy! lol) This Movement is about bringing back the history of Jamaa. Bringing back the shamans, stories, the culture, the history. That is the point of the Jamaasian Movement. And as Martin Luther King Jr. once said, "I have a dream." Well Martin, we have a dream too. To bring back Jamaa's history! And as Leafpool also once said, "The Jamaasian Movement is not about abolishing humanity and bringing back beta. It's about bringing back the culture!"

I have visited and joined many virtual worlds, and Animal Jam is unique in it's own way: the culture. Sure, yes, other worlds have a story behind them, like why the speed suit was created in Fantage or the battle against Spike in Webosaurs. But none have their own gods and spirits. Plus Animal Jam's graphic appearence is wonderful, and the customazation is great. No other virtual world let's you change the colors like that.

    We should bring back the culture and spirits in beta, but not beta itself. I mean, there was no free chat! Who wants that? Sure, there was no membership, but No mebership=NO ANIMAL JAM. I want to bring back the culture. The lands back in beta look very interesting.

    I know this is a long comment, but thank you Snowy for voicing my thoughts.

  47. We never wanted the FULL beta back... We want shamans! We want Crystal Sands! Not the ENTIRE beta. The beta, is a beta. (beta means TEST btw)... I say we shall work our way upto shamans themselves, and crystal sands. For now lets work on the shaman statues, and... why don't we try our beta den when we have a chance? The den contest sounds very tempting. Sadly, I think AJHQ has already chosen their new den, going along with these new items.
    I wish you all luck on your jamaasian journeys

    1. The Jamaasian Movement is about bringing back the history of Jamaa. Naming the shamans is only part of it. We must tell everyone of Jamaa's history.

  54. snowyclaw i can understand why they wouldnt bring back beta but it is possible if lots of jammers want it a lot, they probably would for a small amount of days maybe a week.But if not, they can at least bring back beta items to stores, which would be so nice of AJHQ to do because they are so nice and kind because they listen to what we want them to hear.

  68. Hey snowy i really agree with you! i think they should bring back shamans and guides. plus they should name all of the shamans statues. plus beta would be nice at least one day of the week but that wont ever happen :( plus amazing speech snowy claw!

  69. Beta is gone, forever. I do think that many people WANTED beta back because:

    - No Rares (That meant no scammers, hackers, beggars, etc.)

    - Every Jammer = Equal (No Members at that time)

    - No Bullies/Inappropriate People (No bullying, dating, etc.)

    I admit that I wanted beta back before, but now, I want the culture back! Now for a very long cultural speech in a reply. :l

    1. I remember old Crystal Sands. I remember when the shamans were starred in the Jamaa Journal. I remember when a new land was discovered it would say, "Liza _______." And I remember that our culture was broken by two things:

      Rares and Clans.

      They're both very popular, and many Jammers seem to LIKE clans. I'm against both (Don't be mean, because I do hate clans), because for certain reasons.

      Rares: Many people beg for them. Seriously? It's just a bunch of pixels!!! There are some rejected rares like Headfeathers, but most rares get too much attention. Also, most rares aren't very Jamaasian... An exception is the very popular headdress. Of course, rares mean scamming and hacking, which are very bad. Our culture doesn't need rares, so what's the point of them? Also, rares just inspire Jammers to possibly FORGET about our culture? I'm kind of feel weird about this.

      Clans: Very popular. They're usually wolves only, BUT they can be like "herds" or "packs." Clans do abuse other animals, mainly seals/rabbits. They're also violent as people do things like *rips eye out* or *claws neck*. Violence, packed into a kid's website. It's very sad. Also, clans aren't very Jamaasian either. It's natural for animals, but being violent? It's just too far. Besides, the Lost Temple of Zios has turned into a clan's "territory." In my opinion, they're pointless.

      That's just my opinion! I put them into one big review about each thing, but they're both negative. Please do not do flare-ups like "Clans are awesome!" or "Rares rule!" I just stated my opinion, that's it. Jam on! :)

  70. As the world changes, people have to adapt and change with it. You may not like it, but you HAVE to adapt.
    But, we also have the ability to change our future. We can stand up for ourselves and achieve our goals. To achieve our goals, we do have to take one step at a time. You just can't walk by throwing both your feet out in front of you! That's more like jumping :D

  71. I'm fine with Clans, as long as they aren't extremely violent and don't steal other kits, like rylen45's ShadowClan does.
    But the thing that ticks me off is that people are OBSESSED with rares nowadays. I like the concept of rares... except when people talk, think and breathe them :l
    Some people have joined AJ only for the rares... :l
    And there are some rare people who think they can do anything, even say bad words. And then when you tell them to stop, they say, "I'm beta, you can't stop me."
    I bet about 1/8 of those people actually are beta... Then there are also rare people that try to dictate your trades, saying "That's a horrible trade" or "You loser, no one is going to trade for that!"
    And then there's the dating issue... :l

  77. Exactly. I don't think anybody could have said it better.

    Sure, Snowyclaw gets millions of comments a month, and maybe she doesn't read yours, but so what!!!? She's making a difference, and it's popular, so just feel good for her. Not sad because no one listens to you, although you may be trying to help.

    I would love to be part of this movement. I've been on AJ since mebe... early 2011 ( my memory is failing me :| ) and things were different. People were nicer, kinder (except for scammers :'( ) There was more knowledge of the history of Jamaa.

    I was playing hide-and-go seek with my friend the other day on AJ. I was doing the Zios glitch and hiding on top of the huge elephant. Since she was actually right next to me in real life, shielding her computer, I gave her a hint.

    "The great husband of Mira, his land and the most mythical in Jamaa in my opinion." She looked at me if i were about to cut my head off.

    I explained to her the history of Jamaa but by bit, and told her about your movement.

    If I had asked some one in 2011, they would have known what I meant (no offense to my friend, just using that as an example XD). Now we are all caught up in dating and cussing. It makes me sick, I almost want to quit the website....

    So don't scam! Don't date, or be mean! Focus on important things, like naming SHAMANS, and creating more places in Jamaa like the chamber of knowledge that hold secrets of the past. We don't want another dull, glitchy, over-ridded website (no offense, but look at what Club Penguin has turned into. I used to love it when i was younger, and went on it in the last few days for fun, and all it said in the town was "DATE ME" "AM I HOT" and things that were plain mean.

    So if you see someone new in Jamaa that needs help, tell them the history so they can pass it on. PASS ON THE HISTORY. DON'T FORGET IT!

    MAKE A DIFFERENCE, AND SAVE JAMAA!!!!!!!!!
