      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.

  1. The Janet Jackson Praise Thread

  2. What if Janet made an album full of ballads?

    And thus the confusion around what is considered a ballad vs. what is considered a mid-tempo... popular urban music today (Trap) is generally on the slow side, so we’re Livin’ In A World of slower tempos overall. But still, I would definitely consider After You Fall, Black Eagle and Lessons Learned to all be ballads, and in my opinion, songs that stand up with Janet’s best works. No Sleeep IMO is a quintessential mid-tempo, in the vain of Got Til It’s Gone, That’s The Way Love Goes or Unbreakable. I too have issues with Discipline as an album, particularly from the songwriting and vocal production standpoints. But among the the cuts on that album, Can’t B Good is the very best vocal she did there. I would be interested to see how we rank Janet’s best ballads.
  3. Janet with Eissa in London

    The MOST important/ exciting part is seeing Janet and Big D... Wha cha plannin'?? LOL
  4. This thread is OVAH...
  5. #JanetJacksonAppreciationDay happened because of a confluence of factors... several folks on social media that launched a coordinated campaign. What was awesome was that it really caught on worldwide, as many of us hoped it would. And of course, a HUGE part of that was a response to the NFL, and their seemingly tone deaf string of decisions. For me, it wasn't directly about Justin Timberlake. But the other factors were in the air. People see and understand the connections between Janet's career challenges and the current moments of reckoning through the #TimesUp and #MeToo movements. As more and more in the younger generation discover and connect to her music, they too are upset at how she was blacklisted. They see that her career suffered due to factors that she simply had nothing to do with. And in this moment, things like what she endured are no longer acceptable in the entertainment industry. Don't forget that exactly 1 week before the Super Bowl, you had that travesty at the Grammys where Lorde, the only woman nominated for Album Of The Year, was shut out from even being able to perform. Then the President of the The Recording Academy saying the next day that if women want to be respected in the music industry, they need to "step up". In the post SBXXXVIII Fallout, it was Janet that was disinvited from the Grammy Awards, while Justin went, and won that night. All of these things were connected, and they were contributors to the movement's success.
  6. There's something to be said... for not saying anything. "Fans declared Sunday #JanetJacksonAppreciationDay as a show of support of the singer who many feel was not supported by Timberlake after the pair's infamous 2004 halftime show. According to Spotify, the top five Janet Jackson songs streamed in the major bump were "That's The Way Love Goes" (up 126 percent), "Any Time, Any Place" (up 59 percent), "Rhythm Nation" (up 707 percent), "All For You" (up 413 percent), and "I Get Lonely" (up 97 percent)." http://www.thefader.com/2018/02/06/janet-jackson-streaming-increase-spotify?utm_source=tftw
  7. The Official Grammy’s Thread

    #GrammysSoMale-- like we didn't already know this?!?! Time for Neil Portnow and the current leadership to GO. Re-expand the categories (Best Pop Performance, Female, etc.) and change up the live show.
  8. CONFIRMED: Janet Jackson to Headline 2018 Essence Festival

    BUH BYE Tax Refund... it was nice knowin' ya. #MamaCalls #QueenJanet #QueenMary
  9. I remain a JT fan, but I'll just say I'm looking forward to it. The lead single Filthy is ok, but nothing I'm going to rush around to get. And I wish his camp would stop referring to it as some brand new sound because it's not.
  10. Kelly Alexander-- tomorrow!!

    Another ominous tweet from Kelly Alexander. Could this be a long-awaited interview??
  11. ET: Janet Headed to London for Xmas; Possibly Tour Europe/Asia

    *Holds up Unbreakable CD copies and album. PUT IT OUT SO I CAN BUY IT!!!! But seriously lol... DVD/ itunes it, and give fans the choice. Load it up with the show, BTS footage, cuts of all the songs performed from different dates. True fans would be HERE for it!!
  12. ET: Janet Headed to London for Xmas; Possibly Tour Europe/Asia

    I really do think that she and her team don't want to do that until they have all the dates and her personal situation worked out. But one thing's for sure... the Europe leg of the tour should be easier for Janet in some ways because she'll be closer to her home base of London. For the family and fans' sake, let's hope they can all work things out in short order. In the meantime, let's also hope for some sort of SOTW DVD or Documentary which would help to sustain interest in the tour!!

    OMG can somebody that's good with video PLEASE capture from 8:50-9:07 of this?? That's the part where Guero is dancing to if, then a pair of hands (Alex) just APPEAR and grab his crotch!! That shit will go viral.
  14. Island Life Line Dance

    Hey #JanFam!! Does anyone know the #IslandLife line dance? Have we ever seen anyone do this at #SOTW? Would be great to get some JanFam to learn it, post some videos and maybe start doing it at the show.
  15. Island Life Line Dance

    OMG how on earth did I miss this???
  16. New Jimmy Jam interview

    It literally could've been done in preparation for her original show, and they waited to run it until now, with a few updates. I'm not seeing a problem here.

    When she wears the black outfit, she can dance some at the end. The centerpiece of her white and denim outfit is those custom Louboutin denim boots she's wearing... RED BOTTOMS. So no surprise that she doesn't dance much in those.
  18. Kelly Alexander-- tomorrow!!

    I don't know... seems like the camp is getting ready to announce something. And Kelly would be the perfect host to shepherd said announcement. Whoever it is, I'm a gonna tune in!!! #StartPlanningBitches #GilSaidItNotMe


    Who knows?? All I know is that Janet is amazing. The fact that she's doing so much... both touring and taking care of Lil E is incredible to me. And hey... awards season is just getting started. I'm sure some big things are coming up for Ms. Jackson and the JanFam.
  21. Kelly Alexander-- tomorrow!!

    Something is happening Thursday...

    I get the arguments against Janet playing bigger venues, but she's in a precarious position when it comes to touring. Janet is a global superstar... she's got fans in every market. But figuring our how many fans will show to a concert is never an easy task, especially for an artist that has been out of the spotlight, or has a spotty record of consistently performing dates. Is it possible to have a massive "sell-out" run by playing a bunch of theaters?? Sure, but that means a ton more shows per market and a more taxing time on the artist and performers, for smaller albeit enthusiastic crowds. The other option? Go for arenas and even if you can't sell out, power through the show and keep your commitments. Then the next time, fans will know that the tour is happening, because they heard from their friends how EPIC you were the last time. As long as you can make enough to cover your operating costs, this is the strategy that tends to be the best. What I love about SOTW is that it is about as lean and mean as an artist of Janet's caliber could get away with on a tour, yet it totally does the job. She's not spending tons of money on elaborate sets, a bunch of costume changes or pyro/ effects. Which means those savings can be applied to other areas. How much is Janet spending on operating expenses?? My rough estimate based on what some of the more expensive arena tours tend to cost... 10k to secure the date for a venue, 20-40k to rent the venue on performance day 20k to pay for the venue's staff. 100k per performance = pay, living costs for the tour staff 30-50k some sort of cut to LiveNation, possibly paid beforehand to guarantee the tour. Total operating expenses = $200k So if that rough estimate were true, that means that the venues where ticket sales were lower would still be net money makers for Janet, even if they didn't make a bunch. It's quite possible that Janet cleared $100k or more profit from a show where the house was 50% full. At the same time, she gets a chance to test out her best performing markets JUST IN CASE there is a tour re-vamp around new music for 2018. I suspect that if there is an international SOTW leg in early 2018, it might be followed up by a 20-30 date trek around North America which would see near full to sold out at every venue.
  23. #JJ12-Early Expectations/Speculations???

    Oooh LAWD this bish bout to put me on meds!! #JJ12
