Reporting a Player- There are times when you might have to report a player to Animal Jam staff. The staff at Animal Jam headquarters is always working to go through the reports and make sure that the player is removed quickly if they are found to be in violation of some rules. Sometimes a player is falsely accused of something or the player was misunderstood, and in these cases no action is taken against the reported player. If you still find this player is annoying you, take screenshots and then send them into the staff so they can see what is really going on.

Set the Chat For Your Liking- In Animal Jam, you also can change the chat features to include a safe chat and make it so that only certain people can talk to you. If you are a parent, then you can login to your Parent Dashboard and change the chat settings for your child. Depending on the age of your child, you might want to decide to make the chat features more strict, and then relax those chat settings when the child gets older. If you feel like you do not want to really chat in Animal Jam, then you as a player also can ask for the chat to be restricted so that people do not bother you if you are not into that.

Blocking Players– If you report a player and no action has been taken yet, it is important to know you can block this player. If you block the player on Animal Jam then they will not be able to communicate with you. You always can move to a new area in Animal Jam as well to get away from a player that you do not want to talk to or hang out with. You should report them and then block them until you hear about action being taken against the player. Make sure you are careful in what you type because it could be a player trying to get you into trouble as well.

Do not Give Into Pressure- Sometimes a player might want you to type something specific into the chat and in return promises to give you something. If you notice this in Animal Jam, the best thing to do is report the player and then walk away from that conversation. Never give into peer pressure and write anything into the chat that you are not comfortable with.

Remember, there are filters on Animal Jam which will block out bad words and rude language, but the player could still try to get you to say something negative in order to possibly bully another player or even yourself. The chat filters might also think you are trying to say something bad and end up basically reporting you into the system and that can get you into trouble. So basically, if something does not seem right to type into the chat, and another player is urging you to type it, then just block them and walk away.

Keep Usernames Simple and Not Personal- On Animal Jam, your username is screened by the staff to ensure that the username is following the rules. These usernames are seen by everyone in Jamaa which means you need to make sure that the username is following the rules, such as never having any personal information within the name. Do not use a username with your phone number, birthday or any other type of personal information in it. Your username also should not contain any part of your real name or middle name or even your nickname. Especially with animal jam member accounts people are always trying to hack them. So make sure you keep your passwords extra secure on any paid member account for AJ.

Just Joining the Game- You will notice that for that first 48 hours you are only known as “New Jammer” because it is important that the staff look at your username to ensure it is following the rules. The rules also include that nothing rude or mean or crude be in your username, such as something with a bad word in it. After the username is approved, you will notice that your username appears in Jamaa along with all other usernames, and this means other people will then be able to see your username.

Animal Jam staff will change your username if they find that there is something within your name that violates the rules. This also includes you cannot have a username with your favorite band or singer either, since that is a real person and real information is not allowed in this game whether it is you or not.
