Jamaalidays and Alphas

Hey jammers! Today's update brings more of the Jamaaliday season, and it also two returning rares - the Jolly Elf Hat (Jam Mart Clothing) and the Gingerbread Tree (Jam Mart Furniture).
 Today's daily item is 400 gems, great for spending on items!
Well jammers, it's officially the Jamaalidays, don't you think?

In the Jamaa Journal AJHQ has a few articles about gifts they're giving out this season (daily gifts and member gifts).
There are also some tidbits about the Jamaaliday Jam as well as pet Reindeer you can find there (and around Jamaa).
There are a few pages of advertisements as well.

The newest item in AJ Outfitters is the Animal Jam Keychain.
Meanwhile, here are this update's calendar and double gems!
There are also new animal spaces for members (four actually), and a totally revamped animal selection system!
There is also a new News Crew article winner.
Now for the exciting things. First off, Peck has been announced as an Alpha, the newest one actually, interesting fact about missing the phantom wars. . . Keep that in mind for a little while.
Now, here's a must see, the new ALPHA video in Jammer Central. Go on, go watch it. Hurry, hurry, it's exciting!
Though the sound is a little off and the animation is a little pixely, this is a huge step in our discovery of Jamaa's history. Do you think our Jamaasian Movement really inspired all this?
I can't wait to see where all this leads. Quests, more Alphas, meeting the Alphas? I guess we'll have to wait and see.

      Ehhhhh what ALSO SHAMANZ/ALPHAZ!!! ALSO AWESOME AJ ANIMAL SYSTEM

    4. An Alpha is another name for a shaman, because AJHQ thought that 'shaman' sounded to religious. The Alphas are a group of animals who protect us from phantoms and outside forces. They also help guide us, teach us, build our cities and discover things! You may have noticed at the beginning of the game, you were greeted by a panda. That panda is Liza, the panda shaman/alpha. She told the other alphas that she would stay behind to keep peace between Jammers, and help them throughout there journeys.
      I hope this helps!

    1. Try Reloading the page. It works.

    2. The video was magnificent. ;D I also love the new way to get animals!T

      Delete
    3. Yeah! It takes much less time, and you don`t have to look for the right one. But the video was Meh. I don`t really like the C.G.I in the AJ movies.

      Delete
    4. Yeah but at least it isn't nothing.

      Delete
    5. I know. Aww man. I want to be an AJHQ member. Because then i could get on as an alpha and chat with jammers.

      Delete
    6. For anonymous(the one who started this 'chain') here are some tips for that:
      1: Reload the page.
      2: Reset your internet connection.
      3: Turn your computer off then on again.
      4: Email AJHQ and have them Email you the video.

      Delete
    7. Could also be the java or flash player there are using, I know got the longest time I was having all kinds of different little problems , using Internet explorer ..
      Once I switched to google chrome .. I'm problem free !!

    1. The same thing happened to me. Will it just not go on aj or will it say password does not match our records. If it is the first one you needed a better computer. That is just my idea.

    2. Woot! Snow leapords and arctic wolves are finally in AJ Outfitters! I gotta get both! :D

    3. Here`s what i say. Make an account. Get on the Email you signed up as. If you can`t log in, make a parents account(I would NOT advise this for anyone under the age of 11 or 12. If you are under, let your mom/dad do it for yah) Then, once you have the parents account, you can check to make sure that the username is what you want it to be, if not then... well your stuck with it. Try logging on with THAT username, but if that doesn`t work, then reset your password and have an adult type it in for you(they know they keys better and can type faster.)

      Delete
    4. Or, to change your username, copy this and fill it out.
      __________________________________________________
      Dear AJHQ,
      I would like to change my user name. I know that the one i really want, is most likely taken already. So I made a list of 5 usernames that i would want.
      {-------------List Usernames-------------------------------------------------------------------}

      Thank you for understanding!

      Good, No? Any way. send this to AJHQ if you want to change your username.

  12. Wow, this is super exciting! It is a little weird that Peck is the newest shaman, considering that bunnies were one of the original six animals. I can't wait to watch the video!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Actually 5. Koala, Panda, wolf tiger. Bunnies came a month or two later.

      Delete
    2. OOPs! 5 as in koala, panda, wolf tiger and MONKEY

      Delete
    3. As far as I'm concerned, there were six originals, as in the bunnies didn't get a big release like the seals.

      Delete
    4. There was the big 5, then near the middle of beta bunnies came out, then a month or two into non-beta, seals came out then lions

      Delete
    5. I was on A.J. When lions came out and I started in the early summer last year about. So that's incorrect.

      ~hlyndzy

      Delete
    6. Probably because seals are land are ocean animals.

      Delete
    7. Sorry bout the mistake. I was thinking about something else with the lion! Me and my friend were trying to find a way to let him use his lion when his membership runs out.

    By the way... OH MY ZIOS THAT VIDEO WAS AWESOME.

    1. Yeah, maybe the phantoms will attack soon and we can fight them off! :D

    2. Yeah! A new mini game, where you could chose an alpha to play as and beat the heck out of phantoms! Like a mix falling phantoms, phantom fighter and phantom invasion!

  16. You now what`s funny? The Jamaa Journal said that peck is the newest shaman. But that is not true! Peck came before Marco, Ruby, Amelia, Cornelius, Sophia, Edmund, Otto and Harper(maybe not harper).
    Her statue is even before all of theirs in the Mystery Emporium.

    1. Yes, they may. Club penguin has weekly missions. Club Penguin and AJ are competing. When something comes out for one, it comes out for the other. Club penguins gets map icons, so does AJ, AJ makes dens for non members AND members, so does Club penguin.

    2. Thats true but in my opinion AJ is way better. :D

    3. Yeah. The actions are better on AJ. And NM can buy cloths AND den items, and we have better minigames.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think.Christmas is a more widely celebrated holiday- even so, AJ came up with it's own name for it, as if it is a different holiday. However, I think it would be very hard to celebrate every holiday! Imagine all the work AJHQ would have to do to recreate a Yom Kippur, Rosh Hashanah (excuse my spelling) or any other special day. Happy Kwanzaa!

      Delete
    2. o3o not to be rude but what they mean by newest shaman is that they recreated the way she looked and now that aj has become more advanced they posted about her that no one knew before. She isn't like a new shaman but she is new to us.... kind of because she was finally told about... >_< it hard to explain but hopefully you understand D:

  43. I think the video is awesome,but isn't it a little gory for the younger jammers?There are still mysteries in that video.First of all,what is that large phantom?Second of all,they still don't tell us about the death and appearence of Zios.Third of all,they show the alphas to some new jammers even though there are no alpha sightings reported.Fourth of all,there is no mention of Mira's story and Zios's story,especially since AJ acted like the two deities didn't fight back.Fifth of all,why are there statues of these "alphas" when there are only the original alphas?Sixth of all,they included Liza talking about our "journeys",even though we don't hsve quests yet.Seventh of all,why haven't we found any phantoms when the video shows a hint that the phantoms are back?It's all so confusing?

    2. Sad for you 2! In New Zealand schools if a teacher gets mad they just: keep you in at interval/lunch/after school, call your parents, send you to detention/ give you a rubbish bag (i've had one before it's not that great), suspend you, not let you go on camps or come on class trips or they expell you if it's really bad!!! and sometimes it's really hard to get into trouble but overall we might get it up to twice a week and that's not every week!... although there are 3 more days of school for me!
      p.s NZ is a very good country!
