    • 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.

    While I think she was in contention for AOTY and I was somewhat surprised that she didn't get it, the hive seem to have the biggest sense of entitlement I have seen. They think because Beyonce is ad big ad she is, the industry has to worship the ground she walks on. Now it's saying that it doesn't  necessarily  have to and the rug is pulled from under the Hive's feet.
    I don't agree or disagree that she was snubbed. If she was snubbed, it was mostly because she campaigned for the award harder than the others. Outside of that, I don't  think that the album was significantly  better than any of the other nominees. There were many people that like 25 better than Lemonade.
    Also a Grammy is a Grammy is a Grammy. Her not having the AOTY will not be some red flag to her legacy, but those 22 will be seen as a highlight.
    No matter how big you are, not everything is gonna fall on your lap, and it's not the end of the world.

    This ceremony has shown that as much as Beyonce is well admired and has a big machine of fans and critics behind her, she too has to deal with a glass ceiling.  It makes me curious to see where she will go on from here.

    It's not good song at all. The performance isn't exactly winning me over.

    Basically. The problem isn't that we can't stand Beyonce's success, but it's often used by the media and general public to erase Janet's. A lot of the comments go like "Well Beyonce is doing all these things, therefore we don't really need to know about Janet's impact." It's not Beyonce's fault, but that's where a lot of the hostility come from.

    I understand how you feel, but why can't we be satisfied with what Janet has given us and allow Beyonce to pave her own road?

    But it shows that she is really committed to being one of the best ever.

    I don't dislike it, it's just not very catchy at all. I understand what she was trying to do (I think she was trying to remake "Little Boxes") but it wasn't well executed.

    Honestly, if you go outside of this forum, we (the members of the forum) are far from the only people skeptical about the announcement. I just find it fallacious to try to stick the skepticism and resentment only on us. It's probably not fair to Beyonce, but people will always have something salty to about her and her success. That's just a cost of being as big as she is. Just be secure to know she will go down as a bona fide legend with many young women trying to follow her blueprint.

    I think Janet was disillusioned with the industry a long time ago. When she married Wissam, she was finally given the freedom to let go, even though she had fans wanting more from her.

    I completely understand. I seems like Janet should be the reason we're in this community, there seems to be more division on the front. I guess as fans we're not at the same place she is.

    Do you think she's become disillusioned with the board?
