    • 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.

While i don't disagree with you, at what time did become over-saturation? Why wasn't it like that in the 80s?

(I think I have my theories.)

The mid-late 2000s... the digital age... Consumers can get their music for free (or little to nothing) so oversatuating the market doesn't help an artist but instead does the opposite (see Madonna's Ellen Week 2015). And with more and more millenials cutting the cable, performing on talk shows isn't ideal for the most part unless the artists is aiming towards that audience (the generation before millenials who can barely work or comprehend  new technology and still goes to big box stores for their music)

Obviously in the pre-2000s, music had exclusivity.. its sparkle. Consumers had to spend hours searching for a song they heard in a store or at a club which gave it its sparkle. Now that takes seconds and after that, the excitement is lost

I agree. The only thing I'd change is that she needs to control her image but release HER OWN content. I use this person ONLY as an example but the way Beyoncé has curated some of her promo and personal content would work for Janet. It would be growth for Janet. She can be as personal as she wants and impersonal as she wants. She doesn't have to wait for tv interviews. That's an old format. She can do some social media live stuff in the studio and with jimmy/terry. Disable the comments so ppl can't say rude shit & have them speak about the creative process. 

Her promo just needs to be smarter, cleaner, more consistent. 

I disagree. Although Beyoncé stopped giving interviews (mostly bc she's as good of a speaker as she is a writer), Janet doesn't need to promote on social media with "live videos". It's tacky and doesn't work. Janet just needs to do Janet. Comparing her to Beyoncé is ridiculous and is a trap to endless compare sales numbers with each other. 

Janet can go back to doing interviews (she's speaks well) especially after the Eissa and the haters worried about her age. Janet has a powerful weapon at arms length (women) but she just won't use it (oh and SNL wouldn't hurt) 

The public doesn't know who Janet is right now (not literally)

There tacky when they're done wrong. No disrespect to any idealistic fans but Janet has done tacky things in her career. This can be done better. Yes. She is a much better speaker. Interviews work, and so will the other promo. She doesn't have to attack one angle. Go for multiples. 

Its not a comparison to the person it's an example of a method. Petty people become fearful of those conversations. We're just talking to relate.

They're all done wrong. No one can do it "right". Yes Janet has done tacky things but thank GOD she never hosted some hack talent show or any Social Media Q&A sessions.

I think she can control the topic if she just discusses her pregnancy (gets out of talking about her relationship)

I did not say do a Q&A. As a matter of fact I said turn off the comment section. I said they control the conversation by discussing their process and project. Even show them in the studio. So I really don't know what you're talking about. And if it's done you'd be tuned in. So bull shit lol

They did that with Unbreakable sans Janet Jackson... it wasn't live (Janet shouldn't do live recordings :shifty: ) but it was still on social media.. I get what you're saying tho... But any social media tactic is lame and doesn't do much of anything. 

She was mysterious and I loved it ?

I saw someone mention BET awards but did they mean Billboard? The show is on the 21st, she'll be 51, and could get great press....but it's a very quick turn around & I don't know if she's physically ready or not, but it could be interesting if that's the return.

Personally I think she needs to maybe tour overseas first. She needs her international fan base back first. She's put them off too many times before. "All For You" tour, "Rock Witchu" tour, and "Unbreakable" tour. Not a good track record for your international fan base

I can fully agree to that. I think her being in London is working on all fronts right now for her to start off in London to make it up to Europe. She should start there because the demand is still looking to be fulfilled. So her being in London makes that an easy start and transition into work.

It's too early for BET awards announcement unless she bought it

This announcement has nothing to do with Award shows (Don't expect her to show up for either unless they're crowning her). Don't believe/spread everything you read 

You don't need to know if she's physically ready... she's ready when she's ready and she's obviously ready

Yea because to genuinely care about her physical well being is lower on the priority list than to applaud a return fueled by contractual obligation. Having a conversation around you is nearly impossible because you're such a antagonist. 

Youre a cancer to anything disagreeable to you. You're seriously a ridiculous person. That shit is sick.

I'm sure at least some new tracks are coming but It's probably an announcement of the rescheduled tour dates. I (personally) would like her to do a surprise opening performance at the VMA's or IHeartRadio. But I'll accept whatever Janhova delivers. :wub:

 :rolleyes: And like I said... She's not Michael.. she knows her body and if she's ready then she's ready. 

Your opinion doesn't matter

Im not trolling you. Just bc what you said is utter bullshit and I call it out as utter bullshit doesn't mean I'm trolling. Want to see trolling? Go view Austin's posts
