Hey fellow Jammers!
Before I get on-topic, I would like to say STOP PLAGIARIZING. IF YOU FOUND A PICTURE OF SOMETHING ON ANOTHER BLOG, THEN TELL AN AUTHOR THAT YOU FOUND IT ON THAT SITE.
Also, school was cancelled because of snow, so I'm doing the whole sentiment in one day! Yay procrastination.
Anyway, I've been hearing you guys and other Jammers talk about the difference between Members and Non-Members and especially how Non-Members are being treated.
But first: I know several people will say "buT feLERS yOU usEd to bEh a MeMBE" or "wHy diD u JusTR nOW talK abOuT tHIs???!1"
BECAUSE I'M JUST NOW REALIZING HOW HORRIBLE IT IS.
Members and Non-Members have different privileges. Non-Members have two options for a den (land and ocean), can buy clothes, den items, play games, and go to parties.They also have two options for a pet (land and ocean). There are few adventures that Jammers may do. This is IT for Non-Members.
For Members, well, you get to do the rest of the stuff. You have access to EVERYTHING. There isn't anything you can't do.
I interviewed a Non-Member and a Member and asked them about this.
sweetiepie9821 is a Non-Member. They were bored of doing the same thing everyday since they didn't have access to everything. They did think it was fair for Members since they have to pay, so it made sense for them to have access to everything. They want to be a Member.
kl728 believes that Non-Members are treated unfairly, and that Animal Jam should allow more things to be available for Non-Members, but still have limited access in order to let Animal Jam run better with more money.
Are Members mean? Are Non-Members mean?
Members may say things like "party at my den Members only", but there may occasionally be the case when Non-Members do the same thing.
Then there will be the case when a Member might say "not ALL Members are mean".
You're missing the point. What we're saying is that there are Members who are mean, not every single Member in the world is a mean person.
And don't even start by saying "I like Non Members and stuff you guys are cool but stop whining"
You're being so hypocritical if you say "no offense" or that you "like Non Members" but then complain about how they "whine".
The reason why Non-Members are talking about how things aren't fair is because things aren't fair. We aren't asking to completely make everything for Non-Members, but would it really kill Animal Jam to make more items for Non-Members?
I mean, what's this all about?!?!
(Akachip8967 posted about that a few days ago)
I was like "OOo this item is Non-Member and it's nice and fall-ish." And then they made them Member for WHATEVER REASON. At least they're still in my den, so I'm never taking them out!
Don't label Non-Members. When you automatically see a Non-Member, what do you think? Here are some common responses:
"They're probably 5 years old"
"They'll ask you for items"
"They'll trade you unfairly"
I understand this is a difficult task, but please, do not label.
What's the first thing you think of when you see a Member?
"They're an arctic wolf"
"They're wearing a spike"
"They talk about big trading and gifting parties"
"They always ask you to send them stuff"
"They ignore you"
Y'see, there's labeling for Members AND Non-Members. Either way, it's wrong and you should shut your face.
"Oh no I'm losing my membership tomorrow I'm quitting AJ!1!"
This is why I'm talking about this. Apparently, to those that have almost never lost their membership, becoming a Non-Member is a horrible thing. You can't wear your special items, you can't have that special den, and you can't do nearly anything. But you know what? Becoming a Non-Member isn't the end of the world. You may not be able to do anything, but you can still talk to buddies, play games, and go on adventures.
If you believe that not being able to be a certain animal or wear certain things or play certain adventures is the end of the world, then you aren't jamming on like I've been telling you for the past 14 weeks.
I've been recognized as a Non-Member again by several buddies and some viewers, and when they ask it, they're like "OMG NO YOU LOST YER MEMBERSHIP?!" and my response is just "...yeah?"
So I wasn't able to be my favorite animal or wear anything or play an adventure. I'm still having fun! I usually prance around in the previews of the big Member dens (hehehe I have no life) or play games in the Sol Arcade and stuff like that. I still think it's fun!
NOW THIS TIME YOU BETTER JAM ON YOU CONSTIPATED WHIPPERSNAPPERS
