RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. My contact details are here.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

Angry Video Game Nerd/Nostalgia Critic

I'm not a huge fanboy of either, but I watch their videos every so often and usually laugh my balls off every few videos.

"I heard a joke once. Man goes to doctor says "I'm terribly depressed". Doctor says "I know just what you should do. Poliacci the clown is in town, go see him, you'll be cheered right up." The man bursts into tears. "But Doctor, I am Poliacci." Funny joke. Roll on snare drum. Everyone laugh."

He ain't funny though all he does is really do damn old mom jokes and shit.
AVGN focuses on swearing mixed with non swearing jokes and awesome fights.

I like Zero Punctuation. You can say whatever you want about his sense of humor, but his delivery is fucking awesome.

AVGN rules! His random phrases of disgust towards the crappy games are hillarious. I also like his top 10 movie chases/fight scenes/villians series.

Re: Angry Video Game Nerd/Nostalgia Critic

I think NC is superior to AVGN and ZP, ZP was funnier in the beginning, but in the last few months his videos have lost their hilariousness. Plus, NC is always trying new things, with the Chester A. Bum reviews, and Ask Thatguy, and more recently, Video Game confessions. I think he's more witty and funny all round.
