The Spirit of Friendship

Hey Jammers! I'm really sorry for such a late post, but I'm filling in for Snowyclaw because she's having extreme technical difficulties! D:
Anyways, today's new item, like Snowy predicted, is another returning heart item, the Heart Earmuffs, sold in Shiveer Shoppe! They come in eight heartastic colors! What do you think?
Oh, I forgot to mention, HAPPY FEBRUARY 1ST! (:
With the arrival of February, we have February's Birthstone!

The Aquamarine? Wait, what?! That's March's Birthstone…
February's Birthstone is the Amethyst...
Guess AJHQ had a little mixup! How odd! 
Well, you might as well buy one before AJHQ notices so that you can get the Aquamarine early! :P
In addition, AJHQ has posted about the arrival of the annual Friendship Festival, a time when we can all celebrate and appreciate our friendships! (Click the picture below to read the the post)
Likewise, to get in the spirit of the Friendship Festival, AJHQ has prompted Jammers with this question:
How are YOU going to get into the spirit? Maybe you can start by sending a kind Jam-a-gram to a friend like my friend RainbowCat1! Little deeds like that can make someone's day! ^.^
For help choosing a Jam-a-gram, take a look at all the new templates below, which have been newly added by AJHQ to help us all celebrate the Friendship Festival!
Sending kind Jam-a-grams or sending your friends gifts is a great way to be a good friend!

But sadly, nonmembers can't open gifts, so none of us can send our nonmember buddies gifts!
This is one of the few things about Animal Jam that really bothers me.
It's seems a little unfair to nonmembers that they can receive gifts but have to just sit there and look at them instead of being able to open and use them!

Now, as a member myself, I understand that members should get added perks since they're paying to keep AJ up and running.
But, in my opinion, opening gifts should be a feature available to all Jammers. It's really not that big of a deal, and I think it would benefit everyone. 

Maybe if we all come together and try to change this, AJHQ will listen and possibly even consider allowing all Jammers to open gifts so that we can send ALL of our friends Friendship Gifts!
Let me know what you think in the comments!

Happy Friendship Festival!

    1. Oh ok, yay! I do agree that nonmembers should get gifts but maybe only at specific times like birthdays or holidays.

    2. Congrats on 1st! :D

      And yeah, that's a good idea! But if we do it then, why not just do it all the time?

      Delete
    3. Congrats!

      Ditto, Help Endangered Species. Also, members have been "testing" writing-your-own-jam-a-grams for years now! What is this sorcery? .-.

      Delete
    4. Agreed, Nebula! All Jammers should be able to write personalized Jam-a-grams and open gifts!

    8. On my first jammer, Xtreme88, I could open gifts as a nonmember. This was like late 2010. I hope we could have kept this feature forever...

      Delete
    9. Ugh, I know right! And don't forget that dreaded grey chatbox arrow .-.

    10. I think NMs should be able to open gifts.When nonmember bat wings were really rare,and this jammer didn't know rare it was,she asked me to send me my member angel wings,and she would send me her bat wings.It wasnt a scam,but by the second I said NMs can't accept gifts,the bat wings were set.
      I deleted it some day,after at least 2 months later,I got membership . _ .
      Well anywho I'm not really a fan of rares,I like to create outfits on them though :3

    5. lol Silly AJHQ... Though what if they want to confuse everyone or maybe someone who works at AJHQ has a birthday in February but they like the Aquamarine better than Amethyst? .o.

      Delete
  6. The aquamarine is the birthstone for March, not February. February is the amethyst. I think your the next big author for AJS. It just seems like it.

    2. That's really really strange that AJHQ would make such a mistake! Well, at least I got the Aquamarine Birthstone early! XD And thanks to everyone that noticed, I'll add that to my post :3

      Me? The next big author? I doubt it, but thank you. I'm just trying to help Snowy out :)

      Delete
    3. Yeah, you've already took over Snowyclaw's blog, Help Endangered Species! xD

      Delete
    4. No, don't say that! >.< I don't WANT to take over this blog… Snowyclaw does a much better job than I do, trust me.

      I'm not taking over this blog at all, I'm just filling in for Snowy until her computer stops having difficulty. Once that happens she'll be posting 3 days a week once again! I can't wait! Her posts are pawsome! :D

  7. Yeah. All jammers should open gifts. It's a pain in the neck for members too because when they want to give a non-member something by surprise, they can't! >.<

    1. Exactly! That's the whole struggle of it! Thanks for supporting me, I totally agree with you!

    2. Yeah! It's almost sad, they prevent you from doing something kind for somebody less fortunate! That's just wretched!

      Delete
    3. I know, it's quite ridiculous! I hope AJHQ realizes it soon!

  8. The birthstone for February is an Amethyst, not Aquamarine.-facepalm- I guess AJHQ is lazy.

    1. Yeah, how could AJHQ make such a silly mistake?
      Well, then again, everyone make's mistakes sometimes :P

    2. o.e

      But they've been making a lot of mistakes lately... I think they might be getting a bit lazy, I mean look at all these returning items!

      Delete
    3. Yeah, that's very true. We definitely need some more original items!

  11. Snowy claw, that is the best suggestion I have ever heard! I have so many gifts from kind people like a shark fin that i just can't use:(! I just stare at them, let them mock me, and wish I could have a membership! If you are going to make a petition or whatever I would definitely help! Also, nice job on the post today!

    1. Actually it was Help The Endangered that posted. I agree, on most other games they have some gift form and you could always get it! That's just basic ;(

    3. I'm actually HelpTheEndagered297, one of Snowyclaw's authors!

      But thank you SO much for you're support and I totally agree with everything you've just mentioned. I'm glad you liked this post :)

      Yes, I'd certainly like to make some sort of petition but not without approval from Snowy. I'll see what I can do, but in the meantime we should all start emailing AJHQ to ask if they could allow all Jammers to open gifts.

      Thanks for your support,

  16. Probably no one but the Snowy or the other authors will see this since I'm posting late and by the time more Jammers come on there will be a new post, but anyway, being a Spirit Jammer doesnt mean replying to EVERY comment. I do other stuff ^.^

  19. I wish every jammer can open gifts. I get disappointed whenever someone sends me something when i'm non member. I just cant accept. I agree with you that accepting gifts is not such a big deal :/ Also, writing personalized jam a grams should be non member too.
