    • 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.

Janet Coming to Netflix??

I know it's not 'from her lips' yet, but if true this could yield a very interesting way to get back in the public eye. Done tastefully, I think it would be amazing...

I doubt this because I don't think it's Janet or Wissam's vibe. Plus 10 part documentary sounds invasive. Also she's going to be on tour for a little bit so when would recording be? Just sounds fishy.

It would be nice. But I agree with FreelovesJJ, this doesn't sound like something Janet would do but maybe she has mellowed. Anyway ETOnline haven't run the article and they seem to be the most credible source of news lately.

The insider told The Sun newspaper: ''The show will run as a ten-part documentary and will feature recording ­sessions in the studio, co-parenting her child with Wissam and preparing for the European and Asian legs of her tour.

Fake news.

The source also said that whilst the 'Again' singer appreciated the floral present

Alternative facts.

I've said for a long time on here Janet should do more behind the scenes things & a documentary where she shows her philanthropic involvement, her creativity, her process BUT it needs to be a documentary of Janet dropping jewels & giving you an eye into her mind & LESS reality tv. The whole Wissam thing - that feels a little eh. If anything maybe show him pick up the baby or her getting the baby & something like her going to work while Eissa is with him but nothing too reality tv driven. 10 parts also sounds unrealistic - if it was just an hour plus long & an option to record the tour w/ BTS footage this would be great.

Agreed, we don't need a repeat of Life with LaToya.

Not really. There are hundreds of documentaries on Netflix that are more than one episode. From Animals to unsolved mysteries... if the BBC can do a 10 part docu on Animals from a specific part of the world, Janet can do this

do you know the difference between a reality show and a documentary? You seem to confuse the two.

I wouldn't mind seeing this series go from the start of her career until now. Show the journey along with behind the scenes stuff for the tour.

That would be extensive. I mean some minor recaps would be cool, pics:very brief stories I can understand but we've gotten SOOOO much about her earlier career we can move into the future IMO. I don't want it over or underdone just to satisfy fans. I think it should be a happy medium that's good for everyone (fans & business). The plus of  a Netflix doc is that it lasts longer it will be there through out the tour - driving people to the tour & to her. 

I think the smartest move if this is done would be - a 2 hr doc - her showing her process & speaking on some real things, then if it does well set a negotiation to film & do the concert on closing night where the tour will be there too. If it is 10 parts, which feels like a lot, maybe it should be 30 minutes - that's still 5 hours. I just want it all to make sense.

This is why fans aren't apart of her team and should just act as fans and not as successful business shakers & movers: "The smartest move..." ? 

No one outside her base gonna sit through a 2 hour docu on Janet Jackson. That's NOT a smart move. It's actually the opposite of a smart move when it comes to Netflix. 

The documentary will be 45-60 minute long, 10 part documentary. Not thirty minutes

I'm not confusing anything. Unrealistic has nothing to do with if there is enough content it's about Janet & its presentation.

lmfao - they won't sit through 2 hrs but they're going to remain engaged for 8.5 - 10 hrs? I'll officially not respond to anything else you have to say on this topic. Your logic has been made clear.

Do you know how Netflix works? Have you even heard of BINGE WATCHING?

It's like you haven't an idea of what you're talking about and you're stuck on some old format of entertainment 

i don't care if you reply or not.. If ignorance is bliss... then you're all out of bliss

reality shows are entertainment, documentaries are informative. But the lines between the two are sometimes blurry and open to interpretation because if we are being picky, which I know is one of your specialties I personally consider the quote "life as a new mother, the aftermath of her divorce" more reality than documentary. But there is no way her team if it is true would ever use the word reality to describe it because it makes it sound cheap.

They're not blurry at all and if they are, then you need to watch better television. Both are entertaining to their own right.

Reality TV is fake.. scripted. Fiction

Documentaries are informative... nonfiction 

You shouldn't believe everything you read. I'm not being picky.. I'm also not making shit up like you just did

Don't engage that cancer it will only grow. He is a contrarian who enjoys derailing topics because you didn't say something that fits into his narrative fuck him & keep it moving. We all are understanding each other & passing our perspectives without problem. Don't let him take this to where it was never going - 

he thinks people will binge watch multiple segments broken into 45-60 minutes

but won't watch a 2hr doc. When if they watch 2 of the 1 hour series they've already watched a 2 hour documentary. He's not very intelligent don't let him waste the boards time.

yeah like little flashbacks. This is probably the last one of these things we will get so it should be made for historical purposes so that people 20 years from now can go back and watch it. It's interesting that a lot of the Janet legacy matters people are against this idea.  No better way to preserve history than to put it on film

if this is on Netflix and people log in and see this doc at the top of their Netflix page they will watch. You don't have to sit through 2 hours of anything on Netflix. You can watch in parts. It's not going anywhere like on TV.

I COMPLETELY feel where you come from with it being a last shot & preservation. Definitely little flash backs & if so it needs to be done in a way we've never seen before. No more stories of yesteryear that have been told 100000 times. Those are on YouTube this needs to feel iconic. 

Also - you get it. 2hrs will happen whether in a series or a single doc. If anything it's likely to keep people for 2hrs than for them to finish 10 parts of an hour long special on Janet lol. And he doesn't know what any of our jobs are some of us actually DO work in this profession.
