Animal Jam contains three versions of in-game chat, offering various levels of restriction. Bubble Chat restricts players from typing messages but allows them to select predefined words and phrases from a list. Safe Chat, the default setting, allows players to only type words or phrases from a particular list which only the game permits, similar to a whitelist. Safe Chat Plus, previously available only to members but now available for all players, allows players to type any word or phrase, albeit being run through the game’s safe chat filter. Parents can control players’ chat settings from the site’s parent dashboard. One can report or block another player for unacceptable, intolerable, or inappropriate behavior. If the player is found chatting in an unacceptable, intolerable, or inappropriate way, the player can have their chat blocked, chat muted for a specific amount of time (usually a day), or even be banned from logging on for a specific period.
