A blank player card indicating inactivity.

Inactivity occurs when a Jammer has not been on Animal Jam Classic for a set period of time.

Short-Term Inactivity[]

Auto Log-Out[]

After six and a half minutes of not interacting with the game at all, a pop-up will appear asking if the Jammer is still there. After thirty seconds without clicking the OK button, another pop-up appears saying they have been logged out. Clicking the OK button will return the Jammer to the main 'Play Now' screen.

Long-Term Inactivity[]

Daily Spin[]

When a Jammer is not active for one or more days, their Daily Spin bonus is reset. The Jammer is instead given default amount of Gems, Diamonds or rare prizes without any multiplier.

Buddy List Timeout[]

When a Jammer has been inactive for 30+ days, one of their Buddies hovering their mouse over the Jammer's name in their Buddy List sees the notice "More than 30 Days." The Buddy List timer also counts below 30 days. There is a glitch where the Buddy List displays "More than 30 Days" when the buddy has been inactive for less than that time.

Gray Player Card[]

When a Jammer has been inactive for 170 days or more, their player card will turn gray. It will not show their Animal but rather a dark gray silhouette of a standing Tiger. Players will not be able to interact with them at this stage. Their den becomes locked, they cannot receive Jam-A-Grams, and the Jammer Wall button is constantly loading. If the player is Buddies with them they can still be removed from the Buddy List. The gray player card may also indicate that the player created their account on Animal Jam and does not have a corresponding Animal Jam Classic profile.

Account Deletion[]

Finally, if a non-member account has been inactive for almost three years, it gets deleted and the player can no longer access the account. No more accounts can be created with the username of the deleted account. Member accounts cannot get deleted for inactivity.


  • Inactivity can also be caused by a Suspension or by Animal Jam Classic's servers going down.
  • A gray card is not permanent; if the Jammer logs on, it will go back to the normal player card.
  • Sometimes, the pop-up informing the Jammer that they have been logged out can glitch and appear even if the player is interacting.
    • There is a related glitch where the player's activity while viewing a shop window, such as clicking through the different pages and the different colors of items, will not be counted as actual activity and they will receive the inactivity pop-up after five minutes of viewing the shop window.
  • The pop-up informing the Jammer that they have been logged out will also appear if the player loses the connection to the server.
  • Sometimes the auto logout popup never appears and the player can remain logged into the game without any activity for extended periods of time.
  • When the "Are you still playing?" popup comes up while playing Overflow, a quiet bell-like sound will play. It is unknown why this occurs.
  • Inactivity is disabled when the player is Painting or Pixel Painting.
