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.

Favorite Gaming Console?

Sega motherfucking Genesis.

"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."

I'm going with PSP.

Yes, I said PSP.

With hacking, you can get Genesis, SNES, NES, and a slew of other console games on it.

Re: Favorite Gaming Console?

NES/SNES FTW!!!!
Yeah, I like them. They are better than any other console in that it had the coolest games.
Don't give XBox360, PS3, or PS2, give me NES and N64.

Because with the help of emulators, you can play any game for the other options in the poll on it.

If you follow that logic then all the existing consoles aren't consoles.

PSP. You can download & edit photos, music, games, videos, INTERNET (I'm typing this from my PSP), USB connector, and get movies and incredible game graphics. Plus, it's so sexy.

I chose PS2. But Nintendo's fucking awesome.

Although, my two favorite game franchises are Sonic and Mario.

Too bad Sega is a third-party game developing company.
