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.

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.

Nintendo DSi - Nintendo drops the portable ball

[Image: ds-it-prints-money.jpg]

http://www.dsfanboy.com/2008/10/02/nint ... tendo-dsi/

Really Nintendo, i'm officially fucking disappointed and sick of your rehashing bullshit to constantly rape your customers. My intelligence feels insulted at how much this greedy company wants us to buy the same stuff over and over and over because it's thinner and got bigger screens or some shit like that. Let's just see the features on this;

Overall size has been reduced -- DSi is 12% or 2.6 millimeters slimmer than the Lite. - I get hand cramps all over playing the DS lite(which is why i kept my DS tank), so why the fuck reducing it's size EVEN MORE? This crap is just worst than a PSP now, you drop this one time on the ground and it's GONE, IT'S DEAD!

Comes with an external 0.3 Megapixel camera (for 640 x 480 pixel pictures) and a VGA camera located on the hinge, directed towards the user. You'll be able to edit pictures using the touchscreen. - WOW! YOU REALLY MADE AN EFFORT! 0.3 MEGAPIXELS and VGA!!! Nintendo, have you realized that we are in 2008 AND NOT IN 2001(Oh wai-, the Wii is a repackaged 2001 gamecube with a couple of new features, i should have seen this coming all along)?

Full music playback functionality, including adjustable pitch and playback speed.
- At a size this small? I really doubt it will do anything USEFUL, unless you're in a silent room!

Both screens have been expanded to 3.25 inches. - See what i said about the size.

SD memory card slot is included, and there'll be on-board memory also. - So we can buy more of their WiiWare(oops, i meant DSWARE!) rip-offs.

Will ship with an built-in Nintendo DS web browser. - That will only be useful to buy DSWare due to the DS capabilities and missing RAM(A RAM expansion was needed for the Nintendo DS browser).

DSi will allow users to download games from DSWare, a new service that operates with Wii Points -- or, as they are now known, Nintendo Points. - YAY!

Logging onto DSWare for the first time will grant users 1,000 free Nintendo Points. - Because their shitty DSWare are rip-offs and almost cost them nothing to produce, they can offer this kind of stuff to get you addicted and get you to buy more.

DSWare comes in four pricing categories: free (!), 200 Nintendo Points, 500 Nintendo Points, and 800 Nintendo Points. - I made my point above

Will come in lovely matte white and matte black. Begone, foul fingerprints that have taunted us so!
- Dropping your console on the floor is now deadly, unlike fingerprints.

And finally, it launches on November 1st in Japan, and will cost ¥18,900, or roughly $179. Check out the official site at the "Source" link below! - ONE HUNDRED SEVENTY NINE BUCKS? Are you fucking kidding me? For the same exact shit we've been playing since 4 years ago? Of course, Nintendo will remove all the accessories available for the DS lite and sell them 3x the price on their website.

Also, the GBA slot GOT REMOVED!

I say, keep your DS, go buy a decent flashcart, a 2gig microSD card and stop supporting Nintendo's gigantic corporate cock .

On a different note, Iphone>Nintendo DSi and the Iphone is a piece of shit .

Nintendo should concentrate on it's traditional gamer audience instead of releasing shovelware.

ALSO, NO EARTHBOUND ON VC.

Re: Nintendo DSi - Nintendo drops the portable ball

Does anyone have any info about the DSi's hardware? I don't care about the already announced improvements as much as the specs.

And is it true that there'll be DSi-only games, like the leap from GameBoy to GameBoy Advanced?

The hardware is the same crap than the normal DS, except it got built in memory for the internet browser(For the normal DS, you had to insert a RAM GBA cartridge).

The DSi-only games are probably going to be the things with the Miis and stuff on the DSware. And no, this isn't a leap, this is another rehash of the DS unlike the GameBoy Advance which was a next generation of portable consoles.
