      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.Ā  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.Ā  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.Ā  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. Ā Official Threads are not complete sanctuaries of devotion of that particular artist; however, there is a need to be civil with other members.Ā  Please refrain from personal attacks and arguments that devolve into personal attacks. Additionally, do NOT use Janet as means to defend an artist.Ā  This forum is made in her honor, and putting her down to boast your particular artist is prohibited. Exercise good judgment and common sense.Ā  If not, then the moderating team will exercise disciplinary action depending on the egregiousness of the action.Ā  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.Ā 

      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.Ā  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 oneā€™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.

Sales donā€™t matter šŸ™ƒ bc if that were the casEĀ IGL would be winning by a landslide in this thread and itā€™s not. Itā€™s losing to a filler track that Janet didnā€™t even bother writing,Ā releasing and/or performingĀ 

My dear, the only reason it was brought up cus you made it like IGL "saved" TVR... By "saved" you were implying sales or nah? Cus in what other ways could IGL have "saved" such a masterpiece body of work. I don't even think you know what you meant by saved.

No. By ā€œsavedā€ I was not implying sales at all since TA is her top selling single on that albumĀ

IGL > TAĀ 

fight meĀ 

I agree but TA saved TVR and I still will never understand how it was the most successful single in her career with 6 million sold worldwide. I never cared for the original version but the the remixes >>>>>>>>>>>>> original version. Maybe that's why it sold so much

That was probablyĀ how.

Three different versions not including club remixes.. itā€™s a great song but personally, I canā€™t relateĀ

TA was never my most favorite Janet song but I have a new (profound) appreciation for the song and it shouldn't be a surprise as to why it's her best selling single. It's really not rocket scienceĀ :blink:Ā It's a straight up, colorful, vibrant, upbeat,universal, feel good song. The reaction of the crowd for that song was light years ahead of the reaction of ANY other songĀ  Janet performed on the SOTW tour. I get it now. It actually has stood the test of time,surprisingly more so than "All For You" which sounded so dated live. This tour really opened my eyes in a new way to Janet's overall catalog, it's hard to explain

Most of Janetā€™s song stands the test of time including AFY and most songs from that album.Ā 

No A4U sounded dated af. And I wouldnt say "most" .. any 80s music for example is gonna have dated qualities to it because of the technology and how they made music back then... Hell we've all agreed that the RN album sounds dated. ItĀ sounds classic but not current...there's a difference. TA sounds current..it hasn't aged at all.. all of Janet's records cant claim this.. that goes for any artist who been out for 2 decades or moreĀ

RN doesnā€™t sound dated at all imo in comparison to her brother or Madonnaā€™s late-80s musicĀ 

i disagree that AFY (song & album) sounds dated. Maybe itā€™s the sample she uses but other than that itā€™s still fresh imoĀ

You're telling me a song likeĀ  "Miss You Much" doesn't sound dated? The whole New Jack Swing was a specific sound during an era that lasted from the late 80s to the early 90s... I find it extremely hard to believe that RN with the heavy industrial/ new jack swing production sounds "fresh" to you.Ā :blink:

Ā 

I said "All For You" the song sounded dated this time around on tour...the album, no so much ..it's aged fairly well

Wow I'm late to this -- of couse "Lonely", a lush beautiful ballad. Her vocals are rightly understated and haunting.
