      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.

I can so do without this song being in her catalog. I cringe when she puts it in her setlist for tours, juss not tour worthy and the audience never seems to connect with that song much

I so damn agree! I never cared for this song or the dancing. All the non released songs were better than the songs she released as singles. Why she never put out R&B Junkie will always be a mystery to me. She could've at least added it to the setlist but oh well.

I love it and I always will! its kinda like a sequel to Throb.

I think she feels obliged to perform it because its one of her most recent dance singles

All thats definitely true. And she clearly loves performing it, like I love her energy performing it like she goes in on it, and it always shows on her face. And part of my love of it is the way she performs it.

I actually really enjoyed ANDS this tour. She placed it as a highlight the way it falls in the tour line up.

PREACH ! PREACH! PREACH! She literally released the medicore songs over the more single-worthy shit. But as far as R&B Junkie, she intended to release it as a first single but radio (stupidly) started playing the horrible as JALW and that why Virgin and Janet had to switch gears and follow suit. The project was strategically handled in the WRONG WAY

And? I like it. Don't care about the audience, I am there for Janet. Most of them just want to sit down anyways.

the shade paid to Damita Jo is terrible. Now Damita Jo is not the most cohesive album, BUT as any Janet album, there are gems to be heard. "Island Life" is a beautiful track that thumps and keeps the rhythm smooth and laid out. "Spending Time With You" is another gem cut to precision quality, glad she's performing both songs on tour

I’m glad someone said it. There are multiple gems but as a whole, DJ is in her bottom 5

Son of Gun, Someone To Call My Lover, Doesn't Really Matter is really popular among most millennials. I love All Nite as a song I can pop my shit to (in private) but I'd replace it w/ any single from the AFY album (not including the title track)

? Sir, I didnt say the audience not receiving it well should dictate to whether you should like it or not. My point of mentioning the audience uninterested demeanor says to me why it simply shouldn't be apart of her setlist, furthermore it wasn't even a hit. Its not a "must have" in her huge catalog of songs for a show. That's  my point and That's MY opinion.

They played JALW because that's the song they were sent. :lol: They didn't magically get demo CDs of JAWL for no reason. R&B Junkie was never going to be the first single.

I liked JALW.  It probably wasn't gonna go down as her most memorable song, it was indeed her most radio friendly. ANDS on the other hand was not catchy and the energy wasn't good at all.  I stand by the opinion the Sexhibition was probably the only song that could have save the album. Most of the rest of the album was pure filler. Though I think R&B Junkie, All love and I Want You were highlights.

Um...who doesn't know the back story by now??? We have discussed this on this board a BILLION times.. ??? It had already been revealed by janet's team yearssssss ago that radio started spinning JALW even tho it was not intended on being a "first single"..only a buzz single ... R&B Junkie was always intended on being the first single cause they were tryna follow the "All For You" song formula and release a song that was a catchy r&b tune with pop appeal. But soon as they were shaping up to release and shoot a vid for "R&B Junkie" ..JALW kinda took off so they switched gears and decided to follow what radio was doing with the song.. 

Very very similar to the Aaliyah situation. "Rock The Boat" was NOT suppose to be Aaliyah's second single after "We Need A Resolution" . "More Than A Woman" was already voted to be the follow up single, hence to why they had already shot the video for it way before she shot the video for "Rock The Boat". Radio got wind of the "Rock The Boat" track..and started playing it ..and it started catching on...so Virgin and Aaliyah's team had to pull the "More Than A Woman" release and switch gears and follow radio and release "Rock The Boat" video. That's why that video was such a rush to get done.. cus they were tryna catch up with the momentum that was building and shaping up for the airplay of the song

ANDS was Janet mimicking what was popular at the time...if memory serves me correctly 'Hey Mama' by BEP and 'Pon De Replay' by Rihanna were great dance hits that served as instructions for DJ's and dancers on what to do at a club when the song came on...Janet trying to put her own spin on said songs came up with ANDS and I think it works when I put it in the context in which it was created. 

Is it her best song...no!...Is it her best dance song... absolutely not! Is it a funky little bop that gets amplified by the choreography and showcases Janet's skill as a dancer/performer...you better fuckin believe it! That's why it's on the setlist and you basic hoes will have to deal.
