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.

How do I get past the school internet block?

I'm on a school computer right now, and apparently it has blocked most of my favorite websites... 4chan and Dramatica! The final stake was when the CSS template of Tv Tropes got messed up however. I've already read the latest updates for any webcomics I follow as well, and dislike Facebook, so I won't go there.

Also the word "proxy" gets blocked from all adresses, including "proxies".
The Finnish word for it, "välityspalvelin", doesn't get me anything but INFORMATION 'bout proxies, so needless to say I am angry >:/

Sorry, if there's already a thread for this... Couldn't find one though..

Additional information: No, I can't just set a proxy from the options cause I'm not the admin >:/

So far I've just trolled Wikipedia and see how fast the nerds react.

Also try DLing TorBundle from here, copying it to a flash drive and using it on the school computer (didn't work for me with amerifag blocking, but it might for you):

It really sucks this stupid censorship is going on all around the world...

Re: How do I get past the school internet block?

I find it delightfully ironic that ss is one of the few sites my school dosnt seem to block. However i cant get anywhere cause mine manages to block every proxy ive tried, including yours SoulRiser, sorry. Good luck to all in the search for loopholes in the great firewall of public education Smile

Or you can try with "www" if "http" doesn't work

I'm so sick of all these people but I'm scared to be alone...
