      Planet Janet Rules   07/07/2015

      General Rules for Planet Janet Welcome to Planet Janet! The main objective of this board is to express your love for Janet, your opinions, and to interact with an important segment of the Janet fandom.  To enjoy your experience here, below are general rules and guidelines to make your experience here be successful: The N Word Please be aware that the N word is going to be filtered on this forum. Most importantly, this word is not acceptable on this forum in any form; therefore, if it is used again by ANY member on here, it will result in an immediate and permanent ban. Consider this the first, only, and last warning regarding this. Music Download | Copyright Infringement Illegal download links to music from any artist are not permissible to be posted on this forum at any time. If you have posted an illegal download link, you must take it down immediately. Failure to remove the links, and/or subsequent, repeated offenses will result in disciplinary action up to and including a permanent ban from the forum. Fan Threads of Other Artists Generally, we like to keep threads and/or topics about other artists within an Official Artist Thread.  This helps to eliminate clutter and redundancy throughout the forum and allow a one-stop shop to view comments on that particular artist not pertaining to Janet.  If there is HUGE news related to an artist and generates a lot of discussion, it is okay to have a standalone thread on that topic outside of the Official Thread. A good debate is OKAY in the Official Threads of other artists.  Official Threads are not complete sanctuaries of devotion of that particular artist; however, there is a need to be civil with other members.  Please refrain from personal attacks and arguments that devolve into personal attacks. Additionally, do NOT use Janet as means to defend an artist.  This forum is made in her honor, and putting her down to boast your particular artist is prohibited. Exercise good judgment and common sense.  If not, then the moderating team will exercise disciplinary action depending on the egregiousness of the action.  Please utilize this announcement as a first warning. Personal Attacks

      Each member has a warning percentage - most of them are at zero right now but a few have been warned before. Each warning is worth 10%, and once it gets to 100% the member is automatically banned from the forum. 

      Each time a member gets into an argument with another member that includes personal attacks, if it is reported or viewed by a member of the moderating team, each participant in the personal attack will get an increase in their warning percentage.  They will be notified via PM, and, prior to posting again, will receive a receipt acknowledging that warning before they can post again. The Moderating Team will never divulge a member's warn percentages on the forum or to other members.

      What this means is you are now responsible for your own future on this forum. The Moderating Team will not keep asking you to stop and being ignored. Learn to let things go and learn to moderate yourself before posting; if you end up banned it will be your own fault. Personal attacks and include attacks on one’s race, age, religious creed, color, gender, national origin, physical, mental or visual disability, medical condition, ancestry, marital and military status, pregnancy or sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and general physical appearance/looks. Depending on the nature of the personal attack there will be corrective action up and including permanent banning. If you have any inquiries about your warning percentage, feel free to PM a mod for an answer. If you need any clarification on the rules, feel free to reach out to The Moderating Team.

    That “group” was Viacom. 🤦🏾‍♂️They OWN a large portion of multiple media. Yet Janet was still fucking everywhere promoting her music. National outlets. Radio was important during that time but the songs and her age played a factor: Sponsors dropped Janet and companies didn’t want to sponsor Janet. A very typical thing to happen after a controversy. Please cite your sources that Viacom got rid of Janet’s sponsors The FCC, a federal agency, decided to incorporate a delay in television that still goes on to this day. That’s change and excellent change at that. Different group though... sooooo You’re pretending the government pushing the boob agenda to cover up the fact that we’re at war. That’s true (similar to Trump dissing the NFL) but they didn’t force Janet to reveal her breast like Trump didn’t force Colin to take a knee. Janet revealed her breast on national tv. Her choice. She maybe a political pawn but 550k real Americans complained. Change had to happen. Her being a pawn and black has nothing to do with releasing Damita Jo, 20YO, & Discipline though. She could have risen above if she stayed true to her sound. Ok. A streaker? On which award show? I don’t watch local news bc they brainwash people and 70% of local news stations are owned by one company

    A group literally decided Janet would not be played on certain networks and airwaves. Literally. A group of people LITERALLY decided she would no longer be receiving sponsorship. A group of people LITERALLY decided that radio and Tv now must have a delay due to Janet Jackson. The fact you missed the point about war & changes we were facing being the prerequisite to things inevitably changing and tightening up...I’m not referring to Janet having anything to do with war. Being used as a pawn means that people use your circumstance to drive their own agendas. They use your experience to make gains they find convenient for their progress. She was used as a pawn. I won’t argue the very obvious race factor with you because on numerous occasions you tend to be oblivious to where it applies. By the way - MAAAANY years ago someone streaked across the stage at an award show. Inside job. No blow out. Commercials were more racey than Janet’s moment. It was minor. If it was so major why did they keep showing it on loop & as a static image on news?
  7. how much longer is this going to go without a final decision ?
  8. BREAKING: SOTW Tour Back On this Summer; “New” Promo Pix

    It’s not a grudge it’s a lesson on who holds your value. Do you decide you’re worthy or you let the industry’s politics decide your value? Her being a mother is even more reason to show your child to not allow the powers that be to determine your relevancy and worthiness. She has WORKED HER ASS OFF to get to just where she is right now. She more than MOST legends had to fight for her respect. Even she said in the opening of Unbreakable - they must have forgot who I am. Janet understands the new day & current time means connect with the culture. Many people are divided on the NFL - she would literally not be teaching anything they shouldn’t have already learned from Colin Kapernick. She would strictly be a pawn to pander for views. She would have to know that. She focuses on her new music, content, overseas tour, and business ventures and she’d be good.

    Technically, she was married/divorced twice (counting the annulment). She also made great albums after divorces She has a new team backing her as well. As well as being an independent artist. That helps
  10. Janet Jackson Survivor: Unbreakable Edition - FINAL 3; RULES CHANGE

    I'm very disappointed y'all let "Unbreakable" and "Black Eagle" go before "No Sleeep". Favourite: Night Runner-up: Damn Daby
  11. All of what you said is true and valid and I’ve made all of those same points over and over throughout the years.. but it’s a new day.. she’s a mom now.. I don’t think she’s in the headspace of holding grudges, especially when the CEOs and leaders of said companies/entities are no longer in play.. it’s a new world out there.. when’s the last time Janet did all these crazy music festivals one after the other? When’s the last time she got married/divorced? When’s the last time she wa a mother? All of that shit (and then some) had occurred since her fall from grace (and yes, the quality of her music did play a big role in that downfall).. regardless, again, I never said it was probable or likely to happen.. but. I. Would. Not. Be. Made. At. All. If. She. Chose. To. Do. Just. That! teach this country a lesson, Ms. Jackson... educate them! I’m here for it
  12. Can’t argue with that!
  13. BREAKING: SOTW Tour Back On this Summer; “New” Promo Pix

    I really hope Janet gets a new weave for these festivals and tour dates. A new era seems to be in the works, and I'm tired of the brown hair she's been wearing often since about 2015.
  14. BREAKING: SOTW Tour Back On this Summer; “New” Promo Pix

    Right... and where Mariah now? Stuck in Las Vegas and reality TV. And while Madonna is a top performing act, her albums aren’t exactly selling with heavy promo. His first of the “none Madea movies” which are his bread & butter. You’re trying to downplay her success. It’s weird especially since you thinking the music and age WASNT the problem (Mariah was 34 when Mimi was released) Janet had nothing to do with war. We’ve been in war for years before 2004. The Entertainment industry has evolved thanks to Janet Jackson. She started the conversation. It wasn’t “minor”. Never has a person exposed themselves in front of a world wide audience. You're implying some mega group decided Janet’s career path. And That this group of white men conspired against Janet (and not Justin). You have no proof of that.. therefore it’s a conspiracy... theory
  15. BREAKING: SOTW Tour Back On this Summer; “New” Promo Pix

    At the time Janet was going through her spiral Madonna & Mariah were still making waves and Mariah was doing it as a comeback. You feel it’s impressive, but Tyler has an audience. Period. It was his 3rd largest. Not his second. Not his first. So it’s like his audience PLUS the Janet fans who wouldn’t have supported otherwise boosted the numbers but he has an audience all by himself. “Conspiracy theory” is used to belittle a point. The landscape was changing regardless the entire nation was being revamped due to war & privacy shifts. Controls have gotten tighter we all know that. Janet was being used as a pawn in the way that she was no more guilty than Justin but her being a woman, a black woman, & Jackson made it easy to sensationalize. It was fake outrage over something very minor.
  16. BREAKING: SOTW Tour Back On this Summer; “New” Promo Pix

    Who in her age group? Yes.. but Janet isn’t just “some artist” My comment was about Janet not Tyler.. she who gave him his third largest box office opening and fifth most grossing movie. That’s impressive imo Not here for conspiracy theories. And even if that was true, I doubt Justin was in on it
  17. BREAKING: SOTW Tour Back On this Summer; “New” Promo Pix

    Mediocre music has never stopped some artists from reaching great heights. People will hate song and with enough promo and radio play you learn to love it. Tyler Perry scores number one movies with or without Janet which I’m sure also helped making her cool with working with him. The landscape was going to change she said herself she felt like a pawn being used for it.
  18. BREAKING: SOTW Tour Back On this Summer; “New” Promo Pix

    Releasing mediocre music tarnished her career. She also changed the landscape of the entire United States entertainment business, inspired the start up of a billion dollar online business, scored #1 movies at the box office despite them being for Tyler Perry, and. Also ageism played the BIGGEST part imo
  19. BREAKING: SOTW Tour Back On this Summer; “New” Promo Pix

    As much as I hear what your thought process is and get why you feel that way. I don’t know if you might consider what it felt like to Janet to be blackballed and to watch the person who participated with you thrive, distance themselves, & then be supported on the main stage that tarnished her career. The experience of very political racism being used as a scapegoat for politics and change. Having jokes made about her, having to answer to the questions 8 years after while Justin is NEVER asked, losing endorsements, not being able to tour for 2 albums & then when she gets to tour having to cut it short because she’s no longer selling like she used to - and touring being the PRIMARY way artists make their money. Having to make nice and play nice while everyone is playing you so dirty. Then allow that same platform you were completely dismantled from to reach out in THEIR time of need & say - hey, let us use you as a pawn again to show we’re trying to be “understanding”... after we already allowed the other half back before you. Janet experienced racism and sexism in a VERY BOLD form, and the angle you’re presenting kinda has racial implications that I’m sure you’re not aware of. It’s like - You get whatever we give you. If we say you’re welcomed back then you’re welcomed back. You dance when we say dance...this is a very twisted display of control. If Janet believes in karma which I KNOW she does - I’m sure she’s looking at their fall from grace as a response to what they allowed to happen to her.

  21. Bigger Era & Why: TVR v. AFY

    For me TVR was the bigger era, because it's when I first engaged with Janet's work personally. And the album just resonated so deeply with my circumstance as a closeted teenager. All For You era started incredibly big, but it was short-circuited due to just the 3 (4) singles being released. Had they continued even sending songs to radio, AFY could easily been the biggest and most memorable era of her career. IMO, I think among her albums, AFY stands out for having the most international appeal, and that would've been a good angle to have taken. Keep putting out singles and see which countries responded the best, then plan the tour with them in mind.
  22. Bigger Era & Why: TVR v. AFY

    STCML was headed to #1 but JLo had a song out at the same time that held things up long enough to prevent that number 1
  23. Bigger Era & Why: TVR v. AFY

    let's not do AFY like that album didn't have some gems on it, COGU was a straight up hit song, and people were living for In God We Trust aTry

    It may “make sense” but so does putting the queen of music in the HOF 🤦🏾‍♂️😂
  25. I’ll take all your sarcastic comment as a compliment.. I’m not saying it’s gonna happen, or even likely. But to think that the NFL didn’t take notice of the reaction to Janet NOT performing alongside JT (i.e. JJ trending higher than JT/NFL on Super Bowl Sunday, JT having the least viewed HT show in almost a decade, etc) and that they’d want to redeem themselves in light of their ongoing controversies all sort of adds up to sense making... and you basically told me to “let go” of my SB theory..and I was watching Frozen with my kids the other day...and well.. you get it now 👍🏼
  26. Maybe Janet can bring her show to the SB Halfime platform and it could be a national educational experience.. a win-win for all sides of the spectrum.. and who better to do that than someone who’s been bringing massive amounts of awareness to these issues for decades. Imagine the press release the NFL would create to appease skeptics: “In continuation of our commitment to understanding and appreciating all voices from all walks of life, we gladly welcome any messages of social inequality and injustices that Ms. Jackson will bring to our Halftime stage.” Etc etc etc..
