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.

Hullo all you people from the dark corners of the internet. I've finally decided to join! I'm in HS and though my school isn't that bad (compared to others), I just really have a problem with the education system in general. So if you see me ranting insanely on here please don't get alarmed Biggrin

This yours?

I really loved it.

Welcome to SS. We have a bit of a shitstorm going on at the moment, but things should calm down eventually.

Re: Greetings

shhh, dont worry, I have the shitstorm under control now guys, no big deal, me and SS are pretty chill again.

anyways, I hate new people. They actually try to improve the school system where as old members just demand my banning. This makes me happy. Enjoy your stay at Sauris's Site!

Hey.

I'm someone who does stuff sometimes.

How are things?

Anything that ever happened or will... one condition, it has to be amazing.
