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.

Huh? Wha? I'm here, I'm here. Welcome to SS, proud home of the butt pirates, lead by our great, butt-loving leader, zero. And the birth place of a religion of my own creation, one that focuses on the pleasures of life, especially that of the flesh. So, please join both and enter a land of pure bliss and happiness.

Oh and btw, make sure you have no fucking sanity, or you won't fit in that well here.

So, darthmat, did you ever try to eat yourself when you were younger?

You don't. You electrocute them repeatedly for no reason with a tazer.
Or you laugh.

This is nothing, if you want to truly fit in here, you have to be prepared for much more weirder things. Laugh

Lol, I've read weirder things, but it just kinda killed anything that was being said. That or I forgot whatever it was I was going to type... Definitely one of the 2.

Just take this advice, no matter what weird thing you read, there will always be something weirder, that's how it is here on SS. This place is a nut house! You should escape before its too late! Run! RUN!!! Its already too late for me, but not you! You can escape this hell!!! You ca-
