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.

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. Send me a message if you'd like to keep in touch with me & Steve.

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.

Don't use ImageShack

I've noticed for a while now that images from ImageShack don't work for me anymore, and had no clue why, but I found this justnow:

Quote:Starting Feb 22, 2011 (?) ImageShack has been enforcing a new policy that requires Site Owners and those outside USA, Canada and the European Union to register to them in order to be able to view any images stored there. This amouts to effectively IP banning most of the World, and serving frozen frogs (see samples below), instead of the intended pictures, to those included in the ban.

In fact, however, the implementation of the ban was also sloppily implemented, in that, most of the time, the "unregistered domain" frozen frog is served, even when the "country requires logging in" frozen frog should have been served, thus adding a confusioning element as to why the intended image was not served.

So basically, fuck that shit, use a different image host.... Cuckoo

That makes no sense. It's not a big deal though, Image Shack sucks.

So what? Tinypic is damn good.

Re: Don't use ImageShack

Son of a bitch motherfucker. I've been using imageshack. In fact, I just used it on another site. Anyway, lately I've just been uploading them to my own personal chan and since no one posts on it, they just stay on there. I need to change the sizelimit though. I'll try out imagur or whatever...

Edit: Imagur is the shit.

They seem to delete images after a while of not using the account or something.

Flickr seems nice, although you have to register and it's kind of hard to set up and then to figure out how to get the direct link, it seems "safer" than others...
But I just found out imgur also allows having private images if you register, so whatever.

Also, I sometimes use cdupload.com. Not just for pictures but for pretty much anything.
