The SWS Is Closing Its Doors...

Hello everyone, I have some news. On this day, the 6th of April, 2015, the SWS closes its doors for good. Lock them and throw away the key.

We jumped, we made the jump, but then the ground crumbled beneath us and we fell into the void. But hey, looks like there's a soft landing down there!

Before you get sad, don't worry. Just because this society is gone, doesn't mean you have to stop scam catching. Zee and I have a society in which we will be scam catching by ourselves. You can all move on now, start your own societies maybe. Maybe you can go join someone else's society. If you have any trouble getting employed or starting your own society, I am here.

I guess this is goodbye then. Because the SWS has made a big impact on AJ, the site will stay up for years after this message has been posted, so that maybe we can inspire future generations of scam catchers.

If you are reading this in 2016 or something, please, continue fighting the good fight that firetigerx started.

Farewell.

    1. Hey folks, Shiver reporting here. I am quitting Animal Jam. Not because you guys think I'm a ruthless hacker, but because my time on AJ is done. I've lead the society for a short week or two, and I failed you. I led it to destruction. My hopes and dreams for the future were crushed because of some immature hacker who framed me. I will still be going on the other games I play, but will retire from AJ. And, Taco, I know you may never believe me, but thank you for being so nice to me. Our talk in firetigerx's den encouraged me. I hope you'll forever enjoy that Royal Garden. I love you Cerise, Clover, Silver, Moon, Zee, Electro, Violet, and all of my other close friends. I bid you all a good time on AJ, which I won't be in anymore. Goodbye, and please find the hacker to avenge me. I will be locking all of my accounts.

  3. The SWS is what made me keep playing Animal Jam. If my friend, Tigertasticlover, didn't tell me about this wonderful place, I would have quit. Now it is closing. I do have my own scam catching website. I know some others as well. Thanks to all the agents hardwork on this blog. Thanks Cerise, Taco, Spanish, Shiver, Silver, and all those other great peeps. Most importantly, thanks Tiger. You have always and always will be my best friend :,)

  6. We fought ,we battled for the good
    of citizens, and brotherhood
    but now it's time to close our doors
    for theres plenty time for our wings to soar
    tears fill our eyes
    and we have much haste
    but if you think real hard and realize,
    it wasn't really such a waste

  12. Wow. I cannot believe sws is over. I have been following your site even though I was fired of course, So I still care deeply about it. Sws has had a deep impact on almost all of us. During my first few days as an agent, almost a year ago? I relized that scamming was a very big problem. I found it was also a out side of aj problem, also. Ever sence I have been taking pictures of scammers, even when I wasnt in the society. And I still have my green police hat :'D, anyways. I hope everyone will continue there scam catching lifes.

    I'll miss the SWS even though I was fired. At least I don't have to cry anymore and I feel depressed trying to re-join. Thank all of you for trying to make peace with me and the society. If agent pie hadn't told me about tis blog I wouldn't be playing animal jam today. I'll miss Shiver, silver, pie, alpha,clover, zee, para and all my other close friends. Good luck with your scam catching groups. You should continue by yourselves and love it. Good luck, bye. I'll miss you shiver but promise we'll keep in touch? Lol bye

  14. I guess it had to come eventually. Goodbye, SWS. I'll try not to cry, but the question now is... Now what? I've been in the society for so long. Most of my friends are agents. I'm still holding onto this key, maybe a new key can be found and open up the doors again. But for now, this is sad. Drama. Everything came down to that. The world is crashing down, raining down. Bye SWS. I'm going to ramble on about many things now.
    1. Does anyone here know Agent Giraffe? Doubt it, but if anyone remembers her, reply to this comment letting me know. Honestly, she's my BFF irl, but she's also an incredible scam watcher. But she was neglected, ignored, not treated the way she should have been. So now I'm making her resigning official. It doesn't matter if the society is over. She's gone forever, basically.

    1. 2. Rebellion talk - before you rage, lemme explain. - No, I have absolutely no interest in restarting the rebellion. In fact, things should have been the exact opposite of what happened. There should not have been drama, there should have been a meeting where agents can discuss. Yeah, well the only reason I got even the slightest bit interested in the rebellion was so I could give the society a peace of my mind. In a good way, I just felt it was unfair for some agents getting praised more than me for doing less and being in the society for a shorter time. I commit a lot into the society, yet some people get honored for something more than I do. No, I'm not being selfish, I'm only saying that some things weren't fair in the first place.
      3. Watchoutcerise - JFHAUNMKRNIABUVNISK NOBODY LISTENS. Ever have those times when you have something incredibly important to say and ABSOLUTELY NOBODY GIVES A CRAP? Well, a fee weeks ago watchout talked with me and we talked about a lot of stuff. Sadly, she's the only person who understands, the only person who even listens to me. She wants to hear from me, she said. She is the only person who really gives a crap about what I have to say. She told me something I thought was important: She is (well, was, since the SWS is closing) still in the society, the reason she doesn't want people to know is her is because she claims the society means a lot to her. Those of you who think I'm watchout, god, no. I could think of better people to be suited as watchout anyday.

      Delete
    2. 4. Too many agents who join quit. I understand Minty and Shiver quitting - it's hard being bosses and drama and irl stuff and stuff, but some agents leave with no good purpose. We needed agents that would stay loyal and stay with us for a long time.. Until a time like this. And we need agents that won't go backstabbing on us because we all know we've had too much drama. I was close to quitting just for the fact that nobody gave a crap about what I do. The only reason I'm still in is because I have friends here. I have no special rank, nobody except respectful agents who care about everyone cares about me, really. Being here was my dream job before I joined. But this isn't how I'd like to run a society. People say I could be a great leader, but I never get the chance to lead. I learned something - you can lead whenever, where ever. You shouldn't wait to make a change. Do it now while you can. I'm still warming up to that thought, thinking at the times I could have led a great group of you guys.
      5. If I was in charge of the SWS I'd make plenty of changes. I don't think there should be ranks like boss or co-boss. It makes some people power hungry or make things feel a tad bit unfair. Everyone should be equal, as many U. S. Presidents have said. If I had to have someone watch my back I would let them. But at the same time I would only want agents that I could easily know that they would be reliable and hard working. I feel like half of this doesn't make sense, but deal with me.

      Delete
    3. 6. At the same time, we all know we'll never win. There are hundreds more scammers and hackers than agents are here. Afterall, this is just a little kid's game. Everything is simply pixels. Fman122 isn't real no more. I would say to just grow up, but at the same time it hurts to see innocent people getting hacked or scammed by greedy pixel-lovers. I hate to see the SWS close, but it pains more to say we'll never win. This is an eternal, never ending war. Our feet will soon get weak, and we can't withstand the battle forever. We all know it. If we get over run by an overwhelming amount of enemies then it's all over, all we can do is out up a temporary fight. We might never win.

      I guess I'm done rambling. Rest In Peace, SWS.

  16. Farewell, SWS. This has been something that has changed the goal of being on Animal Jam. Truthfully, I would've quit already if not for SWS.
    Compare scammers/hackers to a wave, and scam catchers to sandbags.
    Sandbags block the water from flooding the shores of Animal Jam. A wall of sandbags is stronger than individual ones, but one sandbag can still make a difference. Though Beta is correct about scammers outnumbering scam catchers, I still think that we should continue this. Education is a powerful tool.
    I will be starting my own scam-watching blog, but it will mostly post articles like the Philosophy of Scamming, and other things like that.
    So, I guess this is good-bye. Though SWS has disbanded, it does not mean we will lose hope. After all, one person does make a difference.

      We had to let go.
      We had walked through the fire, the sea and the snow,
      But the ground collapsed beneath our feet
      The shadows closed in so we couldn't breathe
      We rose so high
      And we fell so hard
      This dream we carried inside our hearts
      We are not defeated, the war not won,
      It is still the rise of the brighter sun.

      Ah, agent Beta. I remember you, you were one of the best agents I ever knew. Remember in my quitting post, I said I would miss some of you. By that, I meant I would miss you, Shiver, Taco, Noggy, and Fem. It was a long road to the middle of nowhere, but that's not a thing. The anti-scamming movement will return, stronger then ever.

    1. Yes, because posting a comment of you having a temper tantrum is the most courageous thing I have ever heard of.

      We did not close because "a little group of agents say it should close". The SWS changed from a scam catching group to a drama fest. It pretty much broke me inside and ruined my life for the last few months I led. We closed it because its time was over.
      We became so popular that everyone wanted to join, and we made that mistake of letting them all join, then we had to put up with their problems and whatnot. And that didn't end up so well.

      I worked my butt off for this society. I spent hours, maybe if you add it all up, DAYS, working for this society. I gave this society everything I possible could until it ruined me, which left me which two choices; I could either continue working like that and breaking apart inside, or I could leave and start scam catching with Zee. So I chose answer 2.
      We are not quitters. In fact, I'd say that more than half of our society's agents are going on to make their own societies. We tried, we failed, we moved on.

      Is that what quitting is to you?

  31. i feel like this could be a lesson to all of us. u cant trust just ANYONE online. we didnt really know spanish IRL, and this is how she turns out. we didnt really know the fired agents well enough to prove they didnt scam. in fact, you guys didnt know me well enough either. i abused that. i was a scammer. i regret every second of it. but now, regreatablly, i stand on middle ground. i have experienced both sides of the story.

    and the message is simply stay safe online. dont be stupid, like i was. dont scam, or get scammed. (ive done both...) it all just goes down to internet safety: if aj didnt have scammers, there wouldnt have to be any anti scammer forces. no anti scammer forces, no unwanted drama. everyone couldve just been happy and use animal jam like it was meant to be used.

    if everyone was just smart enough to tell a scam from the legit truth, there would beno victims, no PREY, for the scammers. with no prey, the hunter has to just grow up and move on. does anyone else see the point!?

    AND NOW, i reveal myself. i have told beta and electro, fulfilled my promise to them. i can now only beg for the forgivness of my peers. i will answer any and all questions regarding this online animal jam, like what my motives were, etc.

    I am watchoutcerise. I am dark, mysterious, and secretive. i am a shadow, and i like to hide. i like to keep quiet.
