Default "open mic night"

At times a NINJAM session reminds me of good old "open mic night" where everyone reads their own stuff or plays their own material and there's very little convergence or intentional synergy. Sometimes I like this, actually. You never know what's going to happen.

But as others have mentioned, a bit of structure couldn't hurt to perhaps up the overall musical quality of any given session. Chord sequence, BPM, genre, "mood", "attitude" might be considerations for a session. For this, to avoid the "open season" factor you'd have to create sequestered jam rooms with just a small group with similar aims.

So Death Metallers could get their own room, and funk/blues folks get theirs and so on....
