Generally Haunted!

It's October, and you know what that means - Halloween! All over Jamaa, Jammers are getting into the spooky spirit. You can visit the Haunted Forest Party right now!

To celebrate the new month, AJ has released an awesome RIM - the Pumpkin Throne. It's pretty cool! I also released something cool to celebrate October - a new General Today episode, available here.

Also, there are two new (and not too good) things happening around Jamaa. First, some Jammers look faded when they enter a location. See the pictures below? It's General - ghost form.

Both of the above pictures show the glitch occurring as of now 
Also, chat messages take time to be posted now (a chat message is a speech bubble in Animal Jam) as three dots (called an ellipsis) quickly appear before your message does. Me and several other Jammers suspect that this is because of new "chat moderators" who take a look at the messages before they're posted.

To test this theory, I said "Hey, chat moderators, I'm not doing anything wrong when I say this." The speech bubble showed the ellipsis again, but my message never appeared. Weird, huh?

Also, I said "Derp E" and this message appeared. Is "derp" now an offensive term? I don't know, but this is getting strange...
Is "Derp" really all that bad?
That's all for now, folks! See you next post!
