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.

Darkfall

It's a game currently in closed beta. Kind of a MMORPG with FPS style combat and RTS elements. Anyway heres a list I wrote a while ago of stuff that imo make it cool.

- No safe zones. Full PvP everywhere.
- Full looting.
- NPCs will loot you too. Die to some humanoids and expect your corpse to be stripped.
- No levels.
- Over 500+ skills and 500+ spells will be available at release. Claimed by devs.
- Skills can be leveled up to 100 max. Start at level 1.
- 6 different races.
- Advanced AI. Farming one spot will drive the MOBs off. If a group of MOBs get big enough they'll build encampments and start harassing nearby villages.
- AI plays like humans. Will call for help and retreat and dodge and use different weapons.
- You can use anything you want against AI. Drop them in a lake and if they can't swim they'll drown.
- First person combat system. You can miss shots. Melee is third person(This might be wrong).
- Friendly fire. You can hurt your allies and heal your enemies.
- Huge world. Claims to be 2x bigger then the biggest MMO world out there. Estimated to take about 8 hours to run from one end to the other.
- Whole world is hand crafted.
- World is seamless and zoneless.
- No invisible walls or impassible terrain. If you have the skill in climbing, scale mountains. Got swimming skill? Swim across that river.
- Realistic day/night cycles, currently taking about 4 hours for one day.
- Clans can build cities and villages.
- Clans can siege and declare war on other cities and villages.
- Siege weapons.
- Realistic player run economy.
- Mounts. These can actually be used to attack from.

Re: Darkfall

This sounds very cool. And very different from all the other mmo's out there. Are you making it? And what kind of races are we talking about?
