      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.

When did Janet swing hard? 

 

I think he might have meant a hypothetical person and not Janet per se

Either way, that doesn’t apply to Janet bc she did NOT come out swinging hard nor loud at anytime until 2015

Moist is actually good... tolerable... the next step from WYM, Rope Burn... she just went too far with Warmth. 

You posted no lies. The bottom five albums no matter what order you put them in, will always be the bottom five because they were not classic Janet albums... just collections of songs made for Janet 

no to moist.. sure it’s one step better than warmth,  but he two of them go hand in hand imo... plus I’m one of those people who oddly doesn’t like the word “moist” in general.. like, for me, I like pussy when it’s wet...ain’t never been no girl ever tell me that they’re moist... ugh..

but with those bottom three albums (not counting JJ/DS) my fav tracks are Feedback, Luv, RWU, Curtains, DITM, Take care, L2L, ENJOY (!!), island life, STWY and country (haha naw jp fuck that)

..so yea there’s def some legit pieces of gold corn sprinkled throughout her shittiest shit

Oh you’re one of THOSE people :lol: I feel like Janet could have said “Wet” instead of moist, and people would really love it or really hate it :lol: 

I’m right with you on that.. honestly

How many performances of ANDS are there? From different shows? How many interviews did she do during DJ? THERE IS PLENTY OF FOOTAGE from DJ, problem is didn't help change the media backlash

:umm: Yeaaaahh... ehhhh you didn’t answer my question at ALL. I asked when did Janet swing hard and your answer is “AN(DS)”? :umm: 

 :lmao: You thinking that song is hard hitting

The beat was there but the lyrics.. the whisper vocals, the sex.... Predictable. 

One of the biggest problems with that era was her trying to make something out of literally nothing instead of moving on to better songs on the album (lol).

So many mistakes during Damita Jo and we can’t blame them ALL on Justin Timberlake 

AN(ds) is an amazing club song but that’s it. It isn’t “hitting hard” at all. Something you should come to terms with 

And let’s save the “it jump up an irrevant chart’s lowest position two years later”✋? 

Promotion for her album was very important at that time. Especially during her tenure on Virgin Records. Doing interviews was apart of the territory. That’s not “hard hitting”

You obviously didn't understand my original statement, when it comes to promotion, Janet swung hard during DJ in terms of her non-stop performances, interviews and appearances

You obviously don’t understand the difference between “swinging hard” and “doing her job”.

Janet swung and missed by promoting AN(ds) that hard instead of moving on to other songs.. Promotion for her album was very important at that time. Especially during her tenure on Virgin Records. Doing interviews was apart of the territory. That’s not “hard hitting” and neither is the whisper-dance track

With all the push back she needed a knockout album with minimum flaws and with songs that slapped you upside the head, DJ was not that album. They could have denied her all they wanted but if that music was ALOT better...you couldn't deny that.

The music was subpar Bailey... She came out swinging and missed every target bc of the music

so here we are going in circles, I never said the album was great because it wasn't that didn't correlate with Janet's promotional efforts that was my statement

I’ve always felt that she made ANDS her biggest “B-side” single in the sense that it wasn’t getting any type of radio AirPlay almost anywhere and BET was the only channel that sort of had it in rotation sometimes... and the only reason most casual/non-fans are even aware of the song is because of how many times she performed that thing on every show in every time slot that she could think of.. after all those performances and interviews the song never took off like maybe she thought it would, but IWY actually charted a little I think, and that was because radio stations were playing that pretty steadily, but I think it was partially because Kanye West was known to have produced that song and he was getting big that year so that helped.. plus the fact that it’s just a better song out of the two, she’s actually singing real intelligible lyrics and using different octaves.. plus the add-libs were great on IWY and nowhere to be found on ANDS.. so idk what’re I was going with this anymore but there it all is

IWY peaked at #57 and was certified Plantinum and YES mostly bc of Kanye (which is why she should have released My Baby)

You implied the music (singles) was (were) great and no matter how hard she swung and how loud she got, the media ignored it

Except the music wasn’t great sooo your point is moot

If the music was great then you would have a point

I hate to use this example but See Britney Spears (another woman who was blacklisted on radio).. and I cringe saying this but she recovered bc she made great singles that the people loved (She’s not an album artist but you get the point)

Oh honey no I did not, I stated Janet swung hard by getting out there and promoting, actually I don't think any of the singles from DJ were single worthy...what I said was Janet could make a million performances and a trillion interviews and it wasn't going to change the outcome

??‍♂️

If Janet had something better to promote, the outcome would have changed 

It doesn’t matter if you promote something once or 200 trillion times...It all depends on what you’re promoting and in this case, Janet was promoting songs... over and over and over. 

So in theory.. she was swinging hard and missing everything she was swinging at.. making your point moot

Good point, I actually at first didn't like the Bag An Arthur stuff but it grew on me and it's still really good, ANDS,  Put Your Hands an an Im Here. I wish the all would have made the album it would have given it a different vibe than any of her other albums. 

I looooooooooooove "Put Your Hands On" and so did fans and non-fans alike. Japan always gets the good shit lol

Either way, that doesn’t apply to Janet bc she did NOT come out swinging hard nor loud at anytime until 2015

Janet came out swinging hard in 2015? How? By not promoting an album and postponing a tour upsetting half the fans who bought tickets both U.S. and overseas? I say this year she's swinging hard but in 2015 no way unless you're just talking about creating a good album.

But Why did she postpone that tour? ?

 I cannot for the LIFE of me recall why a WOMAN her age would postpone a tour in 2016.

Its weird how male fans are so upset that she postponed that tour. Maybe you, a male Janet fan can explain why a, then married, woman postponed her tour

Musically, I’m obviously talking about the music Joe. Pay attention ??‍♂️

Exactly!!! They forgetting all that. Hell JALW was in the top 5 radio playlists for a few weeks before the backlash. I remember listening to radio countdowns and people calling in requesting "Just A Little While". You're right cause they're definitely in here with imaginary solutions.

In a perfect world. The media would not stop until Janet history was damaged like many of the black artist that came before us. What upset me the most is Janet denoted a lot of her money, time, voice, power and heart to help the world HEAL and a titty was her downfall. Not drugs, abuse but a TIT! . Janet was Black Mega Star that did not have 1 flip under her belt, Performing at the Super Bowl in TX ( red state: sexism, racist, republican) with Justin Timberland. This started Youtube and was on every news outlet for weeks. Sorry, there was no return from this backlash

she legit should’ve had her own Halftime show period but fkn MTV always over saturated all of the HT shows they produced.. even Aerosmith should’ve had their own show but instead they had to perform with *NSYNC and fucking Nelly ??‍♂️ 

really just fuck MTV in general

I know why she postponed that tour and I understand everything but for you to say she came out swinging hard is just a plain lie lol. Who's mad about it? I was front row at the "Unbreakable Tour" in SF so I ain't mad about nothing cause she didn't postpone on me.
