      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.

Yes that's true for me also. Starting seems to be the hardest part. For me today it was doing laundry, I'd been putting it off and for some reason it just seemed so daunting. I know it's a small thing but tonight I finally got up and did it and I feel so much better. 

CHILD, do you know what....with this last thing, re-arranging & organizing my closet & book shelves (which I've been putting off for like 2 yrs) was like a good start to making it better, like it gave me something to be really satisfied with and distract my attention and got me on the road to being bak on track like I am right now. So yea that's exactly it, no matter how big or how small, 1 thing minimum, anything that will distract and satisfy, theres no too small or too big

I'm realizing even telling you (and everyone) about this that how I treated things in my closet & shelves like I treated most things in my life that come my way "just put it some where, I'll sort it out later"....and later took a long time to come.

Sometimes I struggle with depression. I think most of us probably do. What helps you through it? 

I wanted to make this thread because I have a tendency to isolate myself when I’m feeling bad and that can be kind of suffocating. I think talking about things helps and I wanted to create a thread where we can check in on our mental health and provide support to each other.

I know we joke a lot on this board, but I hope everyone (if anyone does need help) is respectful. 

how old are you and do you have some close friends that you hang out with? I used to go through depression during my teenage years. Once I started being more social and appreciating life I'm usually happy and in a good mood all the time. I've literally had people tell me in person and people on facebook message me telling me I seem happy and joyful all the time. Although i'm single and live alone, hanging out with friends during my time off definitely helps keep me happy. Even if we aren't hanging out we're still communicating whether it be by text, phone call, video chat, or whatever. Spending time alone too much is definitely a gateway to depression.

I'm a extraverted introvert. I love people, I love talking to people, and hanging with people, but it can be VERY draining for me personally. I've realized that it's the weirdest inconsistent thing about my moodiness, if I'm away from my friends & fam that I love for like days on in I long for seeing them & hanging with them again as if it's been a decade, but then after maybe a good hour, I'm REALLY ready to be alone again. It's weird, and I love that I let people know this about me when we're getting to know each other (like if you see me at a party and I excuse myself to stand in a area alone.....I'm fine...I'm just taking a breather from it all) and most understand that even though most arent that way, I know a good few that are the same way. But yea I say all that to say for me I've found both being with people and shutting myself away both can sometimes be helpful and can sometimes solve NOTHING lol. It all starts from within....nurturing the spiritual garden a lil... otherwise me with others is just a distraction whilst the darkness waits for everyone to go home or for me to be alone.

RANDOM: My musical therapy lately has been Janelle Monae's entire new album, but the 1 song that speaks to the truth of who I am and how I am and how I feel more than anything is Don't Judge Me

depression is more deep I think, for myself its not leaving the apartment, not engaging others drinking often ...depression is a dark place that to me it feels like crawling out of a hole when you can muster the energy to bother getting up and actually doing it

shoot maybe I am depressed cuz its been like that recently
