      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.

Remember pre-2OYO era Janet dropped a cover of “Weekend” on the old Janet site. I remember being a junior in high school and cutting class to listen to the “surprise” on her website. All hell broke lose causing Janet to let us know that wasn’t the single. For the record, I thought Weekend was cute. The 2O era had so many meltdowns from stans. The FHM spread, billboard awards performance, oprah interview.:lol:

I joined the old board in 2006, so the memories of the pre- 20 yo era was my first introduction to Janet stans/fans/fairweathers..:lol: Once 20 yo dropped, it was a wrap.  The messiness! It was downhill from there..

Alot of fans were giving Janet the side-eye during that debacle but she put all of them into a state of Utopia when 'Enjoy' was released and for a brief moment all of her fans were on the same page and celebrating. Enjoy was the 08 Obama of that album but then politics crept back in and folks went back to being bitter and angry. 

With that said, Weekend was the Sarah Palin of that era. :unsure:

some folks did like "Call on Me"  the era as a whole was a mess, and even Janet said later on the music wasn't right ....personally I always felt like JD should have just been her man and give his thoughts here and there, I was never here for him being in her music, that was something Janet should have left to those who understood who Janet was and how to package that...I still think back to Damita Jo and how "I Want You" should have been an Alicia Keys track

When?

I remember being disappointed as fuck when I first heard Call On Me...it just felt so...weak. Shit Weekend packed a bigger punch for me.

I also remember a thread on here saying "what's your favourite part of the song?" and my response the was the hand claps lol

It was an interview (of course) she did during "Discipline" where she said "the music wasn't right" I'd have to try and find the receipt but I clearly remember her saying that

EDIT: this is not the best source BUT it does replay some statements Janet made http://thatgrapejuice.net/2008/02/janet-damita-jo-20-y-o-werent-right/

She need to let that go. Nobody was clamoring for a remake, but it was still a blessing from Janhova.
