      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 think she is trying to promote a more production-driven show that appeals more to the GP. And it helps that she has the festivals to drive sales. Otherwise, I don't me much of a point doing more US shows, especially some that didn't do so great.

You can tell she’s about to drop a whole roll out and revamp. New music, I’m sure videos, performances to back it, and even new dancers. 

I bet she’s even about to give new content & some other type of big push for what she has going on. Think about how active she’s been and how it always leads to her doing “something”. It’s obvious she’s working. 

I have no doubt she’ll go to Europe but I think she’s trying to scale up to Europe. The fans that come here are die-hard fans but the ones she has to pull in and make buy are the ones who don’t realize she’s putting out so much work just yet.

But most of the shows did great she was able to sell out most  of her dates without promo and music and that’s good she just needs to promote more I think the festival idea is perfect for her and I can’t wait it will become a bigger success

My guess on this tour?  She's trying to build up some steam before the international leg (which should be obvious given the amount of festivals).  It also gives her the opportunity to fill in some time gaps around her festival dates, and secure additional bag for her crew on this very tight summer tour.  

Two other guesses are 1) She wants some sell-outs  and 2) She wants to really build up her younger audience.  The festivals, a mid-summer tour... it's honestly a great promotion strategy before you drop new music.  Lacking huge front end promo budgets from their record companies, this is how young artists build support for their albums and mixtapes today (ex. Logic).  The amphitheaters should sell out rather quickly, and how awesome would a complete sell-out tour look before new music drops??  

Just guesses, so we never know.  But I can just about guarantee that the Texas show will sell out, b/c it's the only date she's playing here.  People from Austin, Houston and Dallas will be fighting for those tickets, and the notion of Austin having a low-performer date will be erased.

I think Janet's playing chess not checkers. I think she is trying to be more ambitious about her projects and that will take more strategic execution.

I mean I'll be pleasantly surprised if she does this, but I don't know why people think she's gonna patronize the media or something of that manner anytime soon.

So yeah, the festivals are promoting the tour and since the tour is only a handful of cities, it seems like a launching pad for something else.

She won’t do talk shows but this time around I BET Janet will be on a big platform to be seen. She’s going to make sure her current relevance is more elevated than it has been. There’s obviously a plan.

I just started reading the article from the Washington Post, why in the hell is she going back to Austin, Texas when it was one of her worst attended dates?

4,973 / 10,560   

EDIT: Okay she's going back to some of the same cities but she is playing outdoor venues so the Austin gig isnt the same venue as before
