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.

Re: Why does everyone hate the Wii?

Nintendo let the shittiest of games be released. NO, I DON'T WANT ANOTHER FUCKING COLLECTION OF BOARD GAMES. NOW FUCK OFF.
Reggie Ann-Fills is an asshole. He turned his back on the Core Nintendo players, who stuck with them for ever.

Re: Why does everyone hate the Wii?

Personally, I believe the Wii is much better than XBox 360 or PS3. First of all, that's why it's sold more units in total. And it keeps you from just sitting on your ass all day playing video games. And you can share photos, browse the internet, vote with others from around the world, shop for games, and on and on and on. Who cares if the graphics aren't that great? They aren't supposed to be! XBox has the highest concentration of M rated games, which makes me sick. Wii rules! Biggrin

The only reason I might spell incorrectly is because I'm using a wireless keyboard on low battery power Smile

You can do that on a PS3, or, atleast go on the 'net. The graphics suck on a Wii, which is important. The Wii controller sucks ass.


And, on a note that kills all your reasons why the Wii doesn't suck:
Doesn't have Halo.

Re: Why does everyone hate the Wii?

I'm generally a supporter of pc gaming over console gaming.

PC games can get better and better without the (strict) need of a new system.

The actual hardware that runs them does not have to come from one certain company. I mean, you do have to generally choose intel or amd, but it's a lot more open to choice.

With console games, it always seems like a scam to get you to buy the newer hardware. And the games wont run on anything but that specific hardware (aside from getting a pc emulator, which generally sucks)

Re: Why does everyone hate the Wii?

I don't really give a crap about halo and world of warcraft. As long as I have my Medal Of Honor Heroes, I'm fine for shooters.

1. When talking about a game console, surfing the web or sharing photos doesn't matter. The games matter.
2. Halo blows. Play Bioshock.
