      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.
       

TLC to Release Album in June 2017

Prince had albums that sold 12k? When? Let’s leave out his instrumental albums bc that’s not pop 

Gladys is a gospel singer... not a nostalgic pop act

So again, you don’t plan out a tour knowing a major player won’t follow through

Oh but if we have to leave out albums that "aren't pop", then how does that compare to TLC because their album is way more R&B & Hip-Hop than pop (just like both of their last albums)

LOFL And this is why you shouldn't comment on Legends doing things, Gladys is a soul singer who releases music in different genres. She has many pop hits, what you're saying would only be worth anything if she ware a Gospel artist at every point in her career.

Yet that's what they've done their entire career, & it's what other black artist's with Sickle Cell have done going back to Motown.

Gonna check it out then.

People hate 3D and i actually enjoy that album so let's see how this goes :lol:

 

 Yea I too really love 3D, and I like it more than Fanmail, with this album I either like it as much as fanmail or slightly more, but yea the 3 last albums all work together nicely

Pop = popular music and since they were once popular 20-odd years ago

For a soul singer, she doesn’t have much of a wiki page like other legends in that field

Which Prince & Gladys were too, and none of their independant albums fit that definition of pop so why should TLC be singled out for not releasing a pop album?

Yup, and yet she's a heavy hitter Legend.

Again that'd be really worth a fair shot, if they had the same budget and label push as they did when they were a "sensation", or if even with that being the case they said anywhere that they expected it to be their biggest release or something....but no....soooo yea their doing as well as most other Legendary/iconic independant artists, and acting like they're not is just petty & pointless.

The highs on fanmail >>>3D but to me 3D is kinda easier to digest simply because it's a smaller and more commercial album
