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.

-SoulRiser

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.

HEY, ADMINS!!!

Please do me a favor and ban me for the next 28 hours. I have to write a major paper, and I lack the self discipline to avoid distractions (like posting here). I'm serious. So yeah, for the next 28 hours, please ban me from SS. Thanks Razz

i'm pretty pathetic, huh?

Re: HEY, ADMINS!!!

Hey, I'm an admin! Oh. You mean on THIS forum. Ah well. OH HEY! I KNOW WHAT I'LL DO! I'm creating an account for you on my forum and banning it.

EDIT: Haha, lulz (if you actually want the account, PM me and I'll unban it).

Carla Franklin has never denied that on the afternoon of the third of August 2006 she raped and killed sixteen children celebrating their friend's fifth birthday and forced their parents to share a dinner of their remains.

I highly suggest Mobb Deep's albums The Infamous and Hell on Earth, if you have not listened to it yet.

I guess banning someone deletes all their topic notify bookmarkey thingeys. Which kinda sucks. I guess you'll have to find 'em again and re-subscribe.

But the board preferences options for "notify me of replies to topics" and "notify me upon new private message" are still checked. Even topics I've posted in after my ban don't give me notifications. I guess it's hopeless, huh?

Hmm. Try unsubscribing from all of them and then re-subscribing.
