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.

God Squad wants Christian GTA

http://www.theinquirer.net/gb/inquirer/ ... istian-gta

Quote:THE MAKER OF the Christian-themed Guitar Hero spin-off Guitar Praise says that he would like to create a game like Grand Theft Auto only more suitable for kids.

Tom Bean, CEO of Christian game makers Digital Praise, told MTV that his outfit takes popular styles of games and infuses them with more positive and encouraging content.

Bean said that there were a number of games like GTA out in the marketplace, and some of them have been derided for their content as being inappropriate for kids or inappropriate in general.

However he said that people don’t readily recognise is that some of these games are popular and successful because they’re really fun. Christian punters sometimes get distracted from the fun of a game by some of the content that’s in it.

He liked the idea of open-world gameplay, but the question remained about what punters can do in that open world. After all we don't want anything unwholesome out there.

Bean said that creating a game that has a lot of fun activities and stuff, that has appeal and remains positive, was a real challenge.

He said that if he was to make a clean version of Grand Theft Auto, taking out the “grand theft auto” part, and forgiving people instead of shooting them, and still make it fun would be one of the bigger challenges.

But you'll have the option to shoot them right?

Mabey we will end up with an exorcist game. That would be fucky trippy. Roll up into a house with some stakes, holy water and a cross hammer remnicant of Gangs of New York and just have at some fucking demons.

Hehe..

I wonder what you would do in a Christian-based GTA game.
