    • 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.Β  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.Β  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.Β  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. Β Official Threads are not complete sanctuaries of devotion of that particular artist; however, there is a need to be civil with other members.Β  Please refrain from personal attacks and arguments that devolve into personal attacks. Additionally, do NOT use Janet as means to defend an artist.Β  This forum is made in her honor, and putting her down to boast your particular artist is prohibited. Exercise good judgment and common sense.Β  If not, then the moderating team will exercise disciplinary action depending on the egregiousness of the action.Β  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.Β 

      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.Β  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.

While I wouldn't mind it, it would unfairly put Janet in a bad light.

That's not the Depressed part. Its the point of you hating yourself and then coming here to hate on Janet over and over and over and over for the last 2+Β years :coffee:Β 

You made your point... You think it flopped. Grand. Your opinion doesn't matter still

You're the Great Depressed bc you don't know when to shut the fuck up with the negativity.Β

The only one here that hates themselves is you and I completely understand why. There's not much to love tbh, insufferable personality and all.

The only reason I even stated my point more than once, was because you and co. kept quoting me...so don't complain about it when you keep engaging me in conversation.Β I simply stated it flopped and the essays started pouring in.

My opinion doesn't matter, yet you're still typing.

And every opinion that isn't delusional is deemed negative on this board.

What type of sound are you expecting?

With Janet, it could be anything tbh.Β  But I'm expecting some smooth rnb and some dance-y grooves.Β  I still want her to experiment with different sounds.Β  Nothing trendy like "tropical house" or whatever they are calling it.Β  I love her rock-ish type songs.

she should absolutely re-release unbreakable. the album is great and too many people dont know it exist. even nosleeep that was a #1 adult r&b song is not widely known, a few months ago when jcole put something out i saw people posting his nosleeep verse saying janet was on a jcole song, they had no idea it was a 2 year old janet song. i use to watch all the periscope videos of the tour and fans at the show didnt know she had a new album out. while unbreakable is 2 years old to her fans it would be like a new album to the general public.

It was all over press she was releasing music for the first time in 7 years. She toured and put it in her bundle. She has it on her social media as the header. It was the name of her tour. Her return was anticipated with the tour - those who don't know, probably won't know. Not just because of promo but because Janet is now catering to a certain age group and crowd.Β

that's not what people are pointing out with you, there is no stupidity here on my part but there is redundancy on yours. If you feel this bad over things why stay? It only brings the board down, we already know what took place why continue to repeat the same thing over and over then say your defense is its my opinion? Its not, you don't need to tell us every five minutes how bothered you are, that shit is old, we heard you the first 100x :sigh:

How about you stop projecting. I don't feel bad. Are you okay? I'm perfectly contentΒ over here.

Β You all act as if I'm in here talking to myself. YOU, Bailey., quoted me and I responded. Game quoted/responded to me and I responded. I'm not in here posting to myself. Maybe you should try re-reading the thread.

Well we can all agree to disagree, but the facts around Unbreakable up to this point are clear. Β It's a great album, it hit number 1, brought Janet back in form with her earlier, more impactful work, and gave her a great excuse to go back on tour. Β I recall a great Forbes article about this (written after Madonna's Rebel Heart release but before Unbreakable came out)Β which summed things up well...Β 

At the end of the day, little to nothing is riding on the success of the [Unbreakable] album itself. If she manages things correctly, nobody will judge her should the record flop commercially. Janet is already one of the most successful pop icons of all time in every sense, and her legacy is not riding on how well a later record performs. If she focuses on creating a well-crafted album that has integrity and meaning, instead of reaching for top ten hits and blockbuster sellers, her fans will appreciate it, and she won’t be lambasted in the media as some other older pop stars are. It’s tough to be on top of the charts and all over radio after so many decades, but really great music knows no age, and can come from anywhere.

Apparently with younger, up & coming artists as well except they can't tour alone :lmao:Β 

Sales were never apart of the formula from a consumer standpoint. You don't buy Pepsi/Coke bc its sells billions of soft drinks. You buy it bc it's the best product out there. You buy it bc you're loyal. You don't buy it bc their stock is high. Why the fuck do you care? How is their sales influencing your life? (Assuming you don't have financial ties to the company) Β 

its weird how some people treat the declining music industry. They love to boast and brag.. hopΒ on the bandwagon... pretend sales somehow matters to them and their lives.Β 

Paula isn't a peer? Since when? Bc she retired in the 90s? Bc she failed to evolve and instead fell into a pit of drugs and alcohol?Β 

And what does JLo have to do with anything? Especially album or touring?Β 

it flopped under your standards which are in line with standards of a signed, contracted artist.. not an Indy artist.. Something you and other small minded idiotsΒ have failed to graspΒ 

Sales matter to the company, the individual who released the product. WE are not BMG. YOU do not have stock or is employed by them. YOU are NOT a music insider or industry expert. WE ALL are consumers. So, as consumers sales do not matter. Sales only matter to cynical assholesΒ who only look at sales as a way to brag and boast about on social media or to your nonexistent friends.Β 

πŸ‘πŸΎπŸ€·πŸΎβ€β™‚οΈ And I don't give a shit :lmao:Β :lmao:Β 

Name an artist that hasn't came and went quickly without naming the top artists of each genre :coffee:Β 

That's the industry now. It is VERY quick. There's no more "sitting at #1 for x weeks" unless you're Adele or Drake and other topΒ acts

Pay attention to the industry and stop trying to compare 2017 to 1997

Lady Gaga Flopped

Someone who didn't promote their album and still went #1 is all that matters πŸ€·πŸΎβ€β™‚οΈ I guess you can be cynical and pretend 230k for an Indy artist with zero promo is bad but Janet and BMG ain't complaining :coffee:Β 

Since I'm apparently saying the same thing over and over to myself....here are just some of Game's responses to me in this thread.

Engaging me and then complaining about my response doesn't make much sense.

No need to defend yourself against the cult. He's like a fan version of "Single White Female". I always envision him dressed in a Janet costume over there like -Β

If she doesn't promote her music and stop letting her legacy fade cause trust me it definitely has been fading and not cause of the superbowl. It's part of her own doing continuously playing hide and seek. I love this woman and I don't like seeing her just let her legacy fade like she's been doing since she got with wissam. You can attend Paris fashion shows but not promote your album? I wanna her to shine this time. It was so embarrassing me talking to people about how I went to her show and people were like "Oh I didn't know she had new music out" or "Oh I didn't know she was touring." SMH

Lol that happened to me so many times and the people asking me were fans of her music. The BET awards are in June not sure if she can snap back that quick but that would be a great opportunity to get some shine. Β Then have them tour dates scroll in that screen after she's done performing. Β You have all these female artist out here doing her shit. She needs to remind them who gave them birth.Β 

But Again unfortunately creatively she's stuck.Β -_-
