Q. Does this cost gems or diamonds? A. The Masterpiece will cost 2 diamonds when you choose a frame and submit it for review by AJHQ. That frame will go into your inventory once purchased, waiting for your submission to be approved.
Q. Is this only for Members or can non-members also make den items? A. For now we are starting with Members testing this new feature.
Q. Can I hang this in my den? A. Yes of course!
Q. Can I trade this or send it to a friend as a gift? A. Yes, you can trade it or gift the approved Masterpiece.
Q. Will it show my name to others so they know I made it? A. Yes, it will show your username on the Masterpiece frame.
Q. What if someone makes something inappropriate? Our team will be reviewing all Masterpiece submissions to ensure they abide by our Animal Jam rules. Inappropriate drawings, swear words or personal
identifying information are a sure way to get your Masterpiece rejected.
Q. Can I report a Masterpiece? A. If you see a Masterpiece that you feel is inappropriate you can report it by hovering your mouse over the frame. A badge icon will pop up and will allow you to report a Masterpiece. Our team will review these reports. We will only take action if the Masterpiece is somehow inappropriate or displayed in an inappropriate manner. Trolling players and reporting them for no reason could lead to disciplinary actions on said Trolls.
Q. Why does it say it will take up to 2 weeks? I want it now!!! A. Please keep in mind that your Masterpiece is a unique, one-of-a-kind den item. Our team must review each one individually before they are allowed to go in game. While we certainly hope to respond as quickly as possible, we may be delayed due to sheer volume of submissions. We appreciate your patience!
Q. How will I know if it is approved? A. If your Masterpiece submission is approved; you will receive a Jam-a-gram notifying you of its approval. The Masterpiece submission will be placed into the frame you purchased upon approval.
Q. How will I know if it is rejected? A. If your Masterpiece submission is rejected; you will receive a Jam-a-gram notifying you of its rejection. The 2 diamonds will be automatically added back into your diamond total (whether you open the Jam-a-gram or not). The frame you had purchased will be removed from your inventory when a Masterpiece is rejected and the diamonds returned to you.
Q. Do I get my diamonds back? A. Yes, you will get the diamonds back if your submission is rejected.
Q. Can I save a work in progress? We don’t have the ability at this time to save works in progress. Perhaps this is an improvement we can investigate in the future.
Q. Will you be updating the AJ Art Studio with more features or improvements? A. We have received numerous suggestions on improvements or new features with the AJ Art Studio. For this update we are not updating the studio. We will investigate the possibility of improvements to the Art Studio and appreciate any suggestions you may have.
Q. Can I have words in it? A. We will not approve Masterpieces that consist of just a word without art, a single letter or a number. Any Masterpieces that are artistic in origin and have a word in it are subject to review by our team. If we feel submissions are completed in an effort to create a scrabble like message using Masterpieces we may reject part or all of your submissions.
Q. Can I make more than one copy? A. There is no way to create a copy of a Masterpiece. These are one of a kind creation by you.
Q. Can I sell my Masterpiece for cash, cards or codes? A. No. Buying and Selling any in-game item for cash, real life currency, game cards or even gift cards is a violation of our terms of service. You will have your account banned for this behavior.
Q. Can I trade my Masterpiece as part of a commission that involves a trade for an in-game item, like a long spike collar or headdress? A. Yes, you can trade an in-game item for another in-game item. Masterpieces are designed to be tradable.
Q. If someone submits a bad picture will they get banned? A. If you submit an inappropriate Masterpiece to our team for review, you will not get banned. However if you are consistently submitting inappropriate pictures, we may choose to look more closely at your behavior in the Animal Jam Community.
