    • 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.

She's probably around the same size as she was during the beginning of the Unbreakable tour.

Idk how she's gonna do all this but bless her heart

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.

Celine is a poor comparison they built an entire building for Celine's residency, it was obvious that hers was a much more lucrative deal. Besides I want Janet to see the fans that are in fact out here wanting to reconnect. Not everyone is going to fly to Vegas for Janet, and when I did so  for UCAP there were people in the audience that werent even fans they were just taking in a show

See - fans keep overlooking the business. Janet gets her money from "people just taking in a show" that's the game. Fans selfishly want her to cater to them but hardcore fans don't fill up multiple stadiums. 

The fans "out here waiting" are not enough to pay for the sound, rig, stage, band, wardrobe, make up, travel, food, hotel accommodations etc. Personally, I hope if she goes back on tour soon it sells out. But she needs more than hardcore fans to do that. 

A residency might not be great for hardcore fans, but on a business level it works. Lastly, it would be believed a good number of hardcore fans will travel for a show - they do every tour season. Some seeing 3-5 shows in diff states. Other concertgoers attend out of convenience.

Stadiums? :umm: 

Selling an arena will provide Janet with enough to sustain a successful tour. Obviously we don't think she's going to sell out Kanas arenas but she'll do fine in major cities. 

Its not about catering to her fans... If the tickets are in a solid ballpark, Janet will do fine on tour. 

She doesn't need the money or convenience like Celine, Brit, and/or Jennifer.

Stop being stupid about other artist. J.Lo is worth more than Janet is reportedly & so is Celine. Janet needs more than they do if it's about numbers & endeavors. You spew stupidity just to act like a more die hard fan. Just discuss truth & leave it alone. Your obsession is ignoranyly sadistic. 

Janet hopefully sales out these shows & people aren't over her touring public reputation for cancellations.

Just some honesty hour here... 

As we all know, Janet SHOULD be selling out large stadiums and arenas like Madonna, Cher, etc. because that's the level of superstar/icon/trailblazer that she is.  But when you suffer a decade long blacklist from radio and tv, it really impeded her ability to keep that relationship going, and grow new fans for the next generation.  

All of that said, the few dates Janet did do for Unbreakable prove that she can support a great tour.  If she launches a similar format to Unbreakable (small core of dancers, less elaborate sets, etc.) and just trade out for some smaller venues (5,000-10,000 seats per city, upsize in select locations), she'll have a very successful tour, and make more than enough money to cover costs and turn a profit.  

I went to the Unbreakable tour in New Orleans (driving in from Houston) and the Smoothie King Center was about 90 percent full... at least 15,000 fans there.  In a smaller venue, she'd sell out all of the initial shows, and maybe even consider multiple dates in each city, which cuts down on back to back travel.

NOOOOOOOOO

I need big sets, HD led screens, elevators, staircases and costume changes!!!!! lol

I'm really starting to get bored with this intimate/Number Ones type of concert she's giving. I have a friend who says she can't afford a large scale production anymore, but don't think that's the case at all.

Janet is on the A-list... One of the top performers of all time! She deservers and have so much more potential! I look back at the Rock Witchu Tour... That's the structure I'd love to see again! I love that show, the sets, video interludes, the way the show tells a story. I love those things!

Same for the janet. World Tour... The stage was so beautiful and imponent! Anyway... I don't know she's afraid of something, insecure or if its a creative thing... But although I love some stuff they did on the Unbreakable Tour, it's definitely not my favorite.

So another UCAPT? That's late and tired. Anyway, the purpose of that tour was to rebuild her touring career, so that she could do bigger things touring wise.

She just needs to promote and not postpone again...prove that she's reliable, because many are starting to think that she isn't.

Hey I shared my opinion and I am glad to be challenged on it.  I would love nothing more than to be proven wrong!!  The fact that Unbreakable album and tour received essentially zero in promotion, and the album still went to number 1 with respectable sales is saying something.  

After I got back from Unbreakable New Orleans, I came in to the office with the tour book from the show, and was looking at it over my lunch break.  One of my co-workers came by and was like "wait, that's Janet Jackson, right?"  and I told her yes and that I had gone to her concert the day before.  She basically flipped out at the fact that Janet was on tour again.  

Maybe promotion really is the key.  At least enough so that every possible fan knows that the shows are happening.

JLo hasn't had a hit tour.. ever.. JLo can't get a hit song without Shitbull and forget about albums. Zero fan base

You used shit examples like Celine Dion as if she's a pop star. She's not. She's a vocalist

JLo is a flop who y'all think is special bc she's 45 with a hot bod but she's forgettable at best 

Quit acting like a tour specialist. Like you have managed Pop stars of yesteryears careers. You haven't. You don't know what's best for Janet.

A mix of some Arenas and some theaters would suffice.

Planting Janet in Vegas is a waste. Leave that for the pop stars who can't tour like Britney, JLo, Xtina, etc

Yet they still have more than Janet. Your catty ass post was that they need the money, and Janet doesn't. They have the money - that Janet doesn't have. You're attacking moot points just to seem like you're some die hard fan. Shut up lol you sound stupid. 

It has nothing to do with us thinking JLo is hot - we think she's been successful, & her fan base has kept her that way. Whether vocalist or pop artist the business acumen is the same. Janet's touring rep has struggled because of inconsistency whether her fault or not. That's the facts.

I didn't find the stage for Unbreakable disappointing, I did think instead of projection she needed video screens because the one she does have seats back behind so much else. The lighting of Unbreakable was phenomenal. I just think of some of the shows Ive seen and the things they can do with tech now, I saw JT and his whole damn stage lifted up, and he had that massive screen in the back that fired lasers and shit. The thing with Janet is she's known for elaborate shows and that's included costume changes and sets that were huge.

More what? Who cares how much money each one of them has...

Which one has build a legacy by themselves? Not Celine.. not JLo.. not Britney

JLo is successful mostly in the acting field.. especially in recent history

Grand. And plotting her in Pop Retirement Home will not do much to deter that image. Pretty sure you're making that up based on "what you heard" and not actual facts

You brought money into this, now you're claiming who cares? You see why you're such a joke around here right? Claiming a new mother doesn't need "convenience" means you much rather put her & her child through up & downs of flight travel - which is torture on a child. Ears popping every other day for the child & different exposure to different elements. Their immune systems are not that strong. So......

Instead of the catty bragging rights you're trying to make a standard for Janet - if ANYTHING right now that "convenience" would be ideal for parenting. Your so fucking weird man lol. It's ridiculous.

There's something called a bus and many mothers travel with their children. 

Quit playing the "new mother" card. Like mothers can't travel with and without their children. She's not some middle aged house wife and she has the means. There's nothing wrong with an infant who travels as long as that infant is up on all their immunization shots By your logic, Beyoncé should set camp in Vegas. She's a mother.. of almost three. No way she can tour, right?! 

You're making shit excuses for Janet. You don't speak for her. You're not a tour expert. Never will be.. you don't run Janet's career.. never will. You're a fan with a stupid opinion on what Janet should do with her life

theres a fact for ya

Game my points remain. Stability is always better for new born babies than instability & consistent travel. You try to be catty & usually come off wrong & stupid. You'll reply but the conversation is over.
