Threat? That wouldn't be my exact wording.

The jump button isn't useless, many people in fact like to fidget with it, jumping off cliffs, into other wolves, etc.
Wolves, as Kivia said, also do jump in real life so the button also keys into the whole 'real wolf life' scenario that WolfQuest creates.
everything out of the ordinary is considered weird, i try to stay clear of the eathlings and their fears

It can be annoying when spammed, but I feel it makes me feel less "robotic", I feel like a real wolf when I use it.

Some folks use the jumping as "attacking" when the roleplay and the likes, so for those who take roleplaying more seriously may not like it. And then there's always jumping for no reason, and that could annoy a select number of people too.
But personally, it doesn't bother me. =3 Some people use it more for fun than for annoyance, like leap frog.
I say it should stay, since wolves jump in real life, yes? ;D

I agree,

I like it! Its fun to play leap frog or jump off of cliffs and attack people for territory. Thats how real wolves live. Well, except for the leap frog and jumping off cliffs part

I think the jump button is a great addition to the game. I use it for jumping over trees, rocks, bushes, carcasses, dodging, and even hunting. I think WQ should keep the jump button as they may use it for farther purposes one day. If someone is bothering me, I just run away, join another game, or I usually kindly ask them to stop. That's just what I do though I don't know what works for you.

I agree with this, the jump button has many uses in my opinion. I tend to use it to get over obsticals, carcasses, etc. or even to just go faster! If there are issues in the MP game, it is good to tell them to stop it because it is annoying or they're not suppose to do it. It does work, most times, and if they don't stop it's okay to just find another game to play. :3 Or, just ignore them, that also works because the person who's doing it isn't getting any 'attention' in return.

I completely agree with this. I find leapfrog fun and I like jumping off cliffs/steep slopes or just to jump into the water to try to get my wolf almost way under the surface.

As long as it causes no lasting damage or harm to the community or fellow players, I see no problem with it, other than the casual RP'ers.
I believe there is really no harm in keeping it, though, as a wolf's gotta jump (or somehow hover, but that's just plain creepy...). ;)

What is the meaning of the jump button? It doesn't really help you in WolfQuest, but it's a good attachment. But I HATE it when people jump on you for no reason in multiplayer, but I think it's all right in RP.

I don't mind it but some people are bothered from it because some people use it to represent biteing.
I don't think it should be deleted but I think that it can be annoying at times but it can be useful in role plays and to jump over carcass which I sae lots of people do. :D

I think the jump button should stay. I can understand how it can be annoying when people "over use" the jump button by doing things like simply jumping over and over or by jumping on you but like others have said it does have some good qualities to it. I know I've taken part in some good games of leap frog sometimes with other members and it has helped me when I used to get stuck trying to get back up the cliffs in Amethyst Mountain. It doesn't really personally bother me. I guess it all really depends on how you view the way it's used and how you've seen others use it. I consider it to be helpful at times and wolves do jump real terms.

I can't say it really bothers me. At times it is use full, like when you run into a log you don't feel like having to swerve around or a dead carcass. I do say that they could decrease the amount of stamina it takes up.
