    • 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.

    Woo y'all can come out now.
    No longer do you have to pretend his big-nosed ass was cute beyond a quick once-and-done glance. No longer do you have to pretend to be happy for her while she cancels yet another tour. No longer do you have to pretend like you give a fuck about anything but another album.

    The album version is heavenly. The single edit, even with the extra verse, is neutered. It took everything that was special about it about it and turned it into average bland 90s R&B.

  3. Beat added a post in a topic What Janet album took the longest to grow on you?   

    Discipline is trash from beginning to end as a Janet album, but it's enjoyable enough if you ignore that it was from someone who is supposed to be so involved in her craft and puts out albums that are "about where she is at that point in her life". For me, it will never grow to be anything beyond a collection of songs by a great artist who was on a creative break at that moment.

    I had the opposite reaction. I love the song, but repeat plays really lend themselves to the realization that the vocals are really kind of irritating. The male voice refrain is annoying, and Janet's garbled verses are a shame. This is kind of her worst vocal production since the dire Weekend, and that's a shame because the lyrics are great.

    I would be irked that she's promoting her siblings when they don't reciprocate, but since their promo would be worthless anyway, I guess it's a mute point.

  6. Beat added a post in a topic After you Fall (GMDZ Classic Mix) #UnbreakableBRASIL   

    I kind of classified this song as "un-remixable" like some of her other ballads or midtempos. The I Want You remixes were total off-tempo garbage and the only decent remix of With U I ever heard was an unofficial one by the long-lost Juanki. This is actually kind of cute though.

    LOL. Any rumor out there about Janet silencing people is automatically invalid since this deluded crackhead comes out every few years with the same bullshit. If she wanted to shut people up, this fool would have been eliminated 20 years ago.

  8. Beat added a post in a topic What was..   

    Last GREAT video? Probably SOAG. It had a concept and an aesthetic that worked all around, and that's something that's been missing for a long time.
    JALW was dumb.
    IWY was pointless.
    AN(DS) was lackluster.
    COM was wasted money.
    So Excited was AN(DS) 2.0. Trash.
    Feedback was absolute garbage save for the last 20 seconds. The only thing saving it from being her worst video ever is that sequence, which was obviously better than Nothing.
    RWU was okay. The flooreography is utter nonsense, and there's that drag queen lookalike that fools you in the 360 orgy shot, but it's cute for a low-budget video.
    Make Me was cute, not great.
    Nothing was nothing.
    No Sleeep had moments but it was basically crap.

    They recycled her parts into a Sidekick.

    Plenty of NOs has some songs that are pretty close to genuine Janet. Direplan is just mediocre trash all the way through.

  11. Beat added a post in a topic The Janet Jackson Sales Thread   

    It's true that Janet is uninterested in this stuff but since artists don't apply for certifications, labels do, this is one thing she can't be blamed for. Universal has no vested interest in paying for certifications for artists that are no longer signed to any of the labels under their umbrella.

    Hopefully it's not for BUI. That ship has sailed.

  13. Beat added a post in a topic Burnitup! Remixes   

    I actually like all of these mixes. We're a long way from the flawless 90s house remixes of the janet. and TVR eras, but these are actually the first set of remixes in a long time that I can actually use. AFY era mixes were spotty at best. Damita Jo had some nice JALW mixes, but the only good All Nite mixes were basically just extended versions, and I Want You was incapable of being decently remixed. 20 had a few cute mixes of COM, but everything else was trash. All Feedback remixes were basically officially-commissioned noise, and I don't remember even hearing a Rock With U remix. That said, if the Naughty Boy remix is really what they intend to use as the single version in the UK, as certain rumors would have it, that is a huge misstep. That version is going absolutely nowhere in that market.

  14. Beat added a post in a topic "How Janet Jackson took control again with Jam and Lewis"   

    On the other hand, this has been her most fulfilling era TO ME since All For You, because no amount of interviews focusing on the same few questions, 20 magazine covers, or "video diaries" could make up for the fact that after two weeks the newness of the music wore off and I realized that none of those albums felt like genuine extensions of Janet's artistry. Y'all can stan for SloLove, Enjoy, and whatever generic trash you liked from Discipline, but none of it felt completely right. As much as I love watching/reading a Janet interview, I'll take a solid album over 100 interviews and a low-budget video any day.
