      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.

  4. The Janet Jackson Praise Thread With a career spanning nearly 4 decades, Janet has released groundbreaking songs, albums, and videos. As she watered her spiritual garden, she has been celebrated for her contributions to the world during her journey. Here, we congregate in the Kingdom Hall of Janhova's Witnesses to bring the testimonies of her children as they pay their respects to the goddess.
  5. The Janet Jackson Praise Thread

    She has spoken about Janet before. There's an interview on YouTube.
  6. It would've been better if she did the "Billboard....do you wanna get Nasty?!" line like on the RN1814T.
  7. The Other News Thread

    The "Other News" Thread "...People gather 'round, at the Lenox Lounge..." In an effort to keep the Janet section as clutter-free as possible, I made this thread for us to post minor Janet news, articles, mentions, etc that doesn't really need a whole thread. Joejoe, I expect nearly all of your threads to be merged into here. Also, if you have a catchier title for this thread, let me know.
  8. Yeah, it's gotta be Rihanna. Ppl would expect her to work with Madonna before Janet since the media, and Rih herself, have declared her "The Black Madonna". I'm not opposed to it, tho. It would greatly help reestablish Janet's international presence, esp in Europe. Janet doesn't have to worry about being upstaged in anyway. The song just needs to be a hit, and the second or third single.
  9. Like, her understanding of performance is just mind blowing. She finalizes her speech about feminism (successfully ending Susan B. Anthony and closing the wage gap), but let's backtrack. The objective is to highlight feminism, and the #MeToo #TimesUp movements, and she illustrates that through dance. She continues the story of "Control", by being in control. Just to explain "Nasty". She used a similar organization from American Idol, but she changed the storyline and the choreography. Watch AI: Notice how the story is all the guys vying for Janet's attention? They dance a little bit for her. Show off their moves, per se. She watches from afar before making her move. But let's contrast that with BBMA: Notice here, the story is Janet going up to the guy and being more assertive. She chooses who she wants. She's in control. She is illustrating feminism. I just....
  10. You can not watch this, and say Janet didn't eat this performance.
  11. Who's more popular than Bruno these days? Rihanna maybe? She's got two albums on the way. Drake?
  12. I don't know why I'm HOLLERING at this reply.
  13. Her career is about to FLOURISH.
