      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.

Prince Tribute, and maybe Janet Jackson in the works for Super Bowl Live series

From the Star Tribune:

The Super Bowl Host Committee began making due on long-promised fun Friday as their producers of free concerts on Nicollet Mall, pop hitmakers Jimmy “Jam” Harris and Terry Lewis, promised a heavily Minnesota-themed lineup — which to them could include NFL outcast Janet Jackson, and definitely will include a Prince tribute.

“This is a great opportunity for us to showcase and be proud of the great music from our hometown,” Lewis said.

Jam and Lewis were to be the stars of the news conference marking the start of the 100-day countdown to the game, but airplane trouble kept the mega-producers from making it into town.

[...]

“Anything that’s possible, we want it to happen that week, and that would fall into that category,” Harris said of the Time reunion. “It’s one of those things that, when you think about mortality, you wonder how much longer will we have to do it?”

Reuniting with artist Janet Jackson for a Super Bowl-related event would be significant for football and music fans. The two producers worked with Jackson on the hits that turned her into a superstar solo artist.

With Justin Timberlake as the official half-timer performer at the game, the question becomes: Whither Jackson? She and Timberlake had finished the halftime show in 2004 when he pulled down part of her costume, revealing a bare breast during to a worldwide audience.

The excuse-explanation for the incident introduced the expression “wardrobe malfunction” into the global lexicon.

Jam and Lewis said Jackson has not been invited to take part in the halftime show this year, but an invitation has definitely been extended by them to be a part of the Super Bowl Live festivities.

“In our mind, she’s also a part of Minnesota music history,” said Harris, referencing the fact that Jackson recorded many of her biggest hits in Minneapolis and Edina while working with the pair in the — ‘80s and ‘90s. Among the songs Harris and Lewis produced and co-wrote with Jackson are “What Have You Done for Me Lately,” “Control” and “Miss You Much.”

So it's possible that Janet just says forget the halftime show, and performs a free concert (or some other big event in the area) during Super Bowl week??  

For those unfamiliar with recent Super Bowls,  Super Bowl Live is a big chunk of the week's worth of festivities that lead up to the game.  In Houston earlier this year Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, The Chainsmokers and a bunch of other big bands all performed at this place called Club Nomadic the week before the game.  Solange performed at Super Bowl Live, which is a free concert series.

Will Justin Timberlake be in rehearsals in the same area the week before?

I'm trying to calculate the probability of them bumping into each other to plan a surprise halftime appearance   :lol:
