    • 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.

    It's obviously something about the tour, but I wonder if the announcement will be broader... The suspense will make this a long weekend.

  2. Blackwings added a post in a topic Ticketmaster leaks "State of the World Tour"?? Janet's coming back?   

    Hopefully given the name SOTW it's a more thematic show, and not just another stripped-down Greatest Hits concert.
    If that's the case, reports about her releasing new music (though I'm not sure about an album) would be great. And hopefully more promo than for "Unbreakable"

    As I said, it's relative -- on avg: 10 tweets/month at minimum. During eras there's heightened activity, then the average dipped below 10 tweets/month in Summer 2012 (Grannygate?) in 2013 and 2014 there was a huge dip, heightening upon May '15 (Unbreakable Era announcement) and tapering off to nada shortly after the era was paused. Janet became less active upon 2012, etc. with far longer periods of inactivity between tweets even compared to previous years in-between/preceeding eras.  Don't know why that's a point of contention. This is a silly back and forth, no?  Reminds me of the phrase, "There are 3 kinds of lies: lies, damn lies and statistics."

    Nothing wrong with Vegas, but seems she's not headed that way.
    If Celine's a has-been with all her success, so is Janet.

    Check it out. Granted, it's all relative -- Big dip in 13-15, big spike for duration of Unbreakable era, and a huge dip.. Don't know why you feel so differently.

    It was not "nearly nonexistent" before Unbreakable.. Prior to '13, she was more regularly tweeting to #janfam, after which it became even more inactive, with long stretches (many months even) in between tweets, moreso lately. Obviously the Unbreakable era saw her dial up the tweets/instagram,etc for promo -- Anyway, I don't see the point of arguing this, which is besides the point.

    Agree, though for Janet, her "openness" is graded on a scale, obviously. I remember her being more active on social media, for example, before marrying Wissam.

    People online already commenting about the baby's "light skin", just shows a lot of folks are deeply cynical with Janet, even in a moment of such joy.

    It's been said before, but if this is Janet without Wissam, I won't miss him.

    This kind of mainstream media recognition of her legacy is rare, which is why I wish her "team" would capitalize on these career milestones/anniversaries more than they have.
    Regardless, the Queen's busy popping out an heir. . .

    Great new article in NY Times: Sorry Ms Jackson, you're underrated.

    (A bit of a read, but still nice to see the recognition.)
     
    The standard for planet-stopping artistic statements in pop music is now so high that you need a pilot’s license to compete with the Beyoncés, Kanyes and Kendricksof the world. But when Janet Jackson craved ascent, she didn’t go to flight school. She went to Flyte Tyme. That was the Minneapolis production company Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis operated and where the three came up with “Control,” Ms. Jackson’s third record and the first of their subtly strange, sonically complex thematic carnivals. The album turned 30 in February, peaked in popularity right about this time that year (hitting No. 1 in July) and still sounds today as much like 1986 as it does 2056. Some producers make hooks. These three made wedgies.
    It makes sense to admire “Control” as an album about independence. It’s a compelling tale of freedom in which Ms. Jackson liberates herself from the demands of suffocating men to make her own demands. She granted herself permission to define her sexiness. Even now, the excitement of “When I Think of You” is the sight of a cherubic Janet Jackson dance-walking across a soundstage in a silky, tricked-out jacket and bustier, matching pants, heels, that hoop earring with the key on it, and the mane of three lions. That was also the summer of Madonna’s “Open Your Heart”video, in which she seduced with just the bustier, some fishnets and a peep show. Despite, or more likely because of, all those clothes, Ms. Jackson’s dancing seemed all the freer.

  24. Blackwings added a post in a topic MJ had Stockpile of 'Violent Pornography'; Proven Libelous   

    Using a bit of logic, one would assume the DA would include a charge of possession of child porn as well, which is a felony. Many of these 'damning' books are availabe on Amazon and included in the Library of Congress. Radar Online isn't my idea of a credible news source.  They recently ran a story of MJ committing incest against Janet and Latoya, based on an excerpt from Bobby Brown's recent book.

  25. Blackwings added a post in a topic Janet's film career   

    Honestly, after the baby & new mother time off, I hope whatever it is she does -- she's 100% into it and focused on a finished outcome... This era had a little too much misdirection and turmoil for my taste... Though I don't begrudge her one bit for having a baby. Whatever she does next, hopefully it's not as messy as its been so far.
    If it's producing TV movies/documentaries/film projects, I hope she's doing it mainly for her, and not just to please the fans, despite how strange that sounds...
