As everyone pretty much knows, we're making some changes that will hopefully make BB a better place to hang out, and talk about the amazing Jennifer Lopez! Image We've listened to a lot of feedback and taken your suggestions into consideration. Sooooo, these are the new rules/guidelines. Please keep them in mind when you post!


1. Respect Jen, her family, and her friends. If you wouldn't say it to Jennifer's face, don't say it here. We are all fans, so this should be the easiest! If you don't like something, fine. State it RESPECTFULLY.

Instead of:  "FAIL!"  say: "I don't like it. I think she can do better." Very simple.

We realize everyone is passionate, but please realize that Jennifer VISITS BB and is a real human being with feelings just like we are.


2. No personal attacks: includes calling each other names, cursing at each other, etc.

3. Respect other artists.  It doesn't mean you have to like or love every artist, just play nicely. Refrain from using negative nicknames or calling people names. If you don't like a certain artist, there's no need to keep repeating it or posting about it in every thread.

4. Everyone is entitled to an opinion. Please don't argue with someone when it comes to their opinion. If someone doesn't like a song, outfit, etc. you can't change their mind, just as they can't change yours. It does not make them haters. There is no need for a whole thread to turn and concentrate on 4 or 5 negative comments. Just let it go, and threads will be much more positive.

Remember, however, that just as someone can post that they don't like it, others can post that they do. It doesn't mean that they are crazy fans.

5. Remember that this is supposed to be FUN! We're all here on our free time to talk about someone we love and work we all enjoy, so let's be pleasant.

We'll be editing posts and be much stricter in the next few weeks as we try to restore the atmosphere and get us all to where we think things should be. Bear with us, because of course, we aren't perfect, and we're trying to figure this out. We want to find the right balance. It is hard to walk the line. We want people to speak their mind, but if we determine that someone seems to be continuously causing arguments or problems, we will take the appropriate action, regardless of how long you have posted on the board.

We also have a "report a post" feature. If you see a post you think is inappropriate, feel free to report it. In the left corner of every post is the "Interact" Menu. Click it and select Report Post to report a post or thread. Add comments and hit submit to send it in. The user will not know who sent in the report about them.

We appreciate all your suggestions and ideas, and definitely welcome feedback. Your feedback is why we're doing this. Image

Thank you.Image

We added that because all the hating in BTVR was, we think, spilling over to this part. People were holding grudges and getting mad and bringing those arguments over here, which just added to all the drama.
