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 to Post Pictures

I realize that this forum in specific is heavy on pictures, and that it is easier to upload them as an attachment on SS. But as Soul pointed out, the server can not hold all of that. (Don't ask me for why, ask Soul.)
So, please upload the images through other methods. Here are a couple: - This is a very easy site to use. Once you sign up, all you do is login, click upload, browse through your files, select it, and you're done. On the site itself there is an option to copy and paste the image link, with the [IMG] BB code already around it. I suggest this site. - I personally don't use this one, so I couldn't tell you how it works or if it's good. But it is without a doubt one of the most common sites used for image uploading. - This site is for all sorts of files. Images included. Sign up, and quick and easy uploads. I have personally used this one, and it works fine.

If anyone has any other suggestions, please post 'em.

NOTE: To post images from a foreign site, right click, and select 'copy image location.' Paste that into your post, and put
around the copied link.

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

Re: How to Post Pictures

TinyPic & are both pretty good for hosting images, as well. I think you can host an unlimited amount of images on Slide.

Re: How to Post Pictures

Maybe I should use this method to post a picture of myself.
Yeah, but some other time when I'm not so lazy.

This site is great. Lots of interesting books you can get just by uploading random lame stuff.
