Why Your Username Says “New Jammer” on AJ

If you have just made an Animal Jam account, you might be wondering about why your username says “New Jammer” even though you just made up your own username. Well, if you didn’t know how this works, everyone on Jamaa can see your username, and it’s important that everyone is following the Animal Jam Rules when making their username for the game.

As soon as you create a new player account on Animal Jam, Animal Jam Head Quarters screens those usernames, which is to ensure that the usernames are good and are following all of the rules and guidelines of Animal Jam. It takes anywhere between 24 to 48 hours in order for your username to be approved by Animal Jam staff, so this is why your username says “New Jammer” before that approval window has closed. Animal Jam Head Quarters will change the username if the username is not following the rules of Animal Jam. If your username is approved, it will show up in Jamaa after that 48 hour window.

Remember, in order to have your username approved, you cannot use rude or mean language in your username, and you also cannot have any personal information such as first or last names in the username, even if the names are faked. You also cannot use special characters in your username, so make sure that you follow these rules to get your username to get approved sooner and show up on Jamaa. If you notice your name was changed, then you probably did violate some rule on Animal Jam, but if you are questioning it then you can contact Animal Jam staff to find out why.
