      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. JD and Janet’s music

    20 YO was a reaction to the underperformance of Damita Jo. Discipline was a reaction to Janet wanting to escape Virgin after 20 YO and start fresh with a new label. These were reactionary albums, not albums she made because she wanted to make them. That’s why they failed. Virgin wanted JD because of the success he was having with Usher and Mariah. But JD did not fit Janet’s style at all. If Damita Jo would’ve been more successful, I guarantee neither 20 YO or Discipline would’ve happened.
  2. More new photos in London

    As many shopping outings as she does, one would think she would have a more extensive wardrobe.
  3. Janet's team talk with Sway!

    No. The late-80’s and 90’s dancers matter. They were able to execute some of the most difficult choreography that can be given to a dancer. These new dancers lack so much of their technical and expressive skills.
  4. Janet's team talk with Sway!

    She really thinks we’ve cared about any of her dancers beyond the 90’s.

    Good review. Ended Consequence of Sound.
  6. The Janet Jackson Accomplishments Thread

    That AMA performance was not a tribute. It was promo for Number Ones.
  7. Kelly Alexander-- tomorrow!!

    He’s the only one, aside from Janet, that would actually make these interviews interesting. Actually Janet said she was contractually obligated not to speak about their relationship, per Rene’s request. She’s just extremely private, so the deal was just fine for her. So really she could be sued if she talked about him.

    You and I both know she is not doing any festivals or promo for that matter. I agree that it’s a good idea as well, but we all know it won’t happen.

    She needs new music before she goes overseas. Considering how she’s doing in North America, I foresee her doing much worse internationally. There’s no buzz for her at the moment and she needs to create anticipation. At the very least, she needs to release a new single.

    #InductMrWonder So you track my online movements? Funny, I don’t even know who you are, yet somehow, you know me. And you call ME the shadow?

    I am not Mr. Wonder. We do not share the same perspectives or opinions on everything. No, 80% is not a sell out to me. 100%is, and Janet hasn’t achieved that.

    But no shows have sold out.

    Austin is the fourth biggest city in Texas and the capital of Texas. How is it random? And Vegas wasn’t gonna be a sellout even before the mass shooting. Vegas is the entertainment capital of the world. That show should’ve sold out as soon as tickets were put on sale. It’s not even a big arena she played. Not being able to sell 8,000 tickets in Vegas after tickets were on sale for 5 months is terrible and embarrassing for an artist of her stature.

    What about Austin’s gross then? Was that a random city as well? Or the other major cities like Las Vegas she couldn’t even sell out?
  15. #JJ12-Early Expectations/Speculations???

    From her A&R person for Rhythm Nation Records. https://instagram.com/p/BbTvX3FhzQR/
  16. TMZ: “No Sleeep” Vid Shoot Wrecks Home

    Not surprising given how extravagant and big budget the video looked.

    If she were actually selling out every show, there would be multiple comments or threads on here of fans bragging about it. But since she isn’t, they’re gonna fume over you posting her box score numbers like this.
  18. SOTW tour in UK/Europe

    I never said she had an easy pregnancy. I said she was on vacation. On vacation from her job, meaning a break. Vacation [vey-key-shuh n, vuh-]nouna period of suspension of work, study, or other activity, usually used for rest, recreation, or travel; recess or holiday:~Dictionary.com The tour was suspended so she could rest during her pregnancy. Isn’t that what she said? “Doctor’s orders.” You all are reaching for the stars with the dramatics. “Sexist!” “Ignorant!” Give me a break. Sis was chilling for a year.
  19. SOTW tour in UK/Europe

    “But she couldn’t tour or work.” So basically she was doing nothing, just like I said originally. Thanks for proving my point. I sound stupid yet you’re the one using terms incorrectly for the sake of attempting to sound educated? The irony.
  20. SOTW tour in UK/Europe

    Dispense of the drama. Janet was not bed-ridden her entire pregnancy, if that was even true. There are several pictures of her baby shopping in London while heavily pregnant. And let’s stop acting like being pregnant somehow made her an invalid. Millions of women still have to work a 9-5 while being 9 months pregnant. Janet had servants, drivers and a multi-million dollar house to just lay around and eat all day in. She had it easier than most women do. Sitting around pregnant all day is not the same as the grind of touring around the country. Stop being dense. Compared to what she’s doing now, 2016 was a vacation for her.
  21. SOTW tour in UK/Europe

    After the promo tour she did in 2015.
  22. SOTW tour in UK/Europe

    Long grueling tours? She’s only been on tour for like 2 months and just had an entire year and a half off basically doing nothing. Dozens of artists tour well into their 70’s. 51 is not old. And she’s in good shape which helps with her stamina and not tire as quickly. With breaks in between she can definitely do a couple more legs with 10-15 dates each if she wanted.
  23. Billboard Top 10 Janet Songs: Critic’s Picks

    I don't agree with this ranking, but at least it wasn't predictable. I was expecting either "Together Again" or "Rhythm Nation" to be #1, yet neither even made the list.
  24. Janet & Eissa at Disney

    They reportedly met backstage at her Seattle show last month.
