      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.

Damita Jo higher than Unbreakable confuses me a little but the rest feels somewhat accurate.

It still amazes me how few people have actually listened to Unbreakable.  I'll tweet a song randomly, and find new folks just discovering it.

I don't think it's really that but then again Unbreakable made history but didn't sell well especially due to lack of promotion. I love the album, great quality, but it doesn't really have bops other than "Damn Baby", "Night", "Burn It Up" although I think the autotune is too saturated so I skip it a lot, and "2 B Loved"

Autotune???

yeah or whatever they did to Janet's voice. It sounds like there's a synthesizer or autotune mixed in with her normal vocals. Whatever it is I don't like it.

On the songs you mentioned above? You thought the autotune was THAT noticeably? Obviously on Gonna Be Alright but I barely hear it anywhere else

I only hear it on Burn It Up and Damn Baby. Something weird going on with her voice that sounds digitized or something.

I've always said that Brandy had to take some cues from Janet with her harmonies.  I wouldn't mind a collab tbh.

Also, did these girls just discover what we've already known?  Even the Sirens can't compete with Janet's vocals/harmonies/melodies.

Exactly. I’m surprised so many people ride the Whitney comparisons and barely mention Janet in that sense

Brandy is to blame when it comes to people comparing her to Whitney. She has claimed that Whitney was her end all be all on several occasions but has praised Janet here and there. Truth be told, anybody with eyes and ears can hear and see Janet's influence on Brandy...right down to the secret marriage...

Whitney is much more of an influence on her...specifically on her debut album.

Brandy said she wanted to sing like Whitney and dance like Janet. As for her harmonies, definitely Janet. Whitney doesn't really layer her songs with harmony to the extent that Janet does.
