Jammers' usernames can be seen by everyone in Jamaa, so it is important to make sure that every username follows the Animal Jam Rules.
Whenever a new player account is created, the username is screened by AJHQ to make sure it's good. During this screening period—which usually takes 24-48 hours but much longer during high traffic periods—Jammers' usernames show up as "New Jammer". Once a username has been approved, it will show up in Jamaa.
If a username breaks the Animal Jam Rules, AJHQ will change it, and it can't be changed again. Usernames that have any of the following are against the Animal Jam Rules:
- Any personal information, including names, addresses, and phone numbers.
- First and last names, even if it is the name of your favorite actor or singer.
- Rude, mean, or inappropriate words.
If you notice a fellow Jammer with a username that doesn't follow the Animal Jam Rules, please let AJHQ know by reporting them.
