      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 Jackson: The First Millennial

Recommended Posts

"Timeless beats" YASSSSSS NO OTHER JACKSON CAN SAY THAT

In Fact.. no other 80s musician has timeless music from that decade

as far as Millenials are concerned, RN1814 is where it's at. That album and TVR can be Relatable to Millenials like myself

 Rhythm Nation was truly ahead of it's time. And your damn right an appeal should be made to millennials about her music.  I was a little kid when RN came out and didn't really understand it.  But as I grew older I did. It's so crazy to think  that the same things she was talking about back then are the exact things still going on today. Time change but situations stay the same...unfortunately.

Same here I was really introduced to Janet Jackson through TVR.  I was 15 when it came out, and couldn't believe that a pop artist was so bold with their music.  I didn't really discover Janet's other albums until 10 years later.  I listened to the first half of RN and by the time Livin' In A World came on, I was crying.  

Artists just don't do what Janet, Jimmy and Terry do anymore.  All of the albums are great, but RN was simply a masterpiece.  Exactly why 27 years later it sounds and feels so relevant.

Damn.....can you imagine a reboot of R.N.? It would be Iconic and unheard of. I think it would work!  If only. I would need a video for State Of The World and Lonely that's for sure. Now that would be a new "movement".

This is only my opinion, but while I feel Control has more "timeless" music (in regard to beats) than RN does, I would say the janet. album contains a lot of beats that are so dated it hurts to listen to..

She could appeal more to millennials than she does currently as her music and videos have aged well for the most part. But she would need to revamp her image--specifically, ensure her work is online in its entirety-- and make herself more visible than she is now to be palatable to the younger generation.

Control sounds dated, instrumentally. Aside from Nasty & Lets Wait Awhile, the instrumentals on Control, IMO, are kinda cheesy.. very 80s

Whereas RN1814 doesn't really have the cheesy factor.. every song can be played as if it were 2020

YES YES YES!!!!! 

Beyond millennials, Janet has generation z appeal. Especially during her John McClain/A&M years with Control & RN1814. Her brand during that time has aged the best of ALL of her contemporaries. The only thing that stops her from crossing over is a HUGE lack of material. I'm glad there's a thread on this because it sucks to see two of the best era's in pop history paid complete dust. :l

Totally agree!  Its a shame they get slept on like this. I'd also say that these generations would gravitate more naturally to her music also (than that of her contemporaries).
