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.

Booty, pussy, men, animals, corpses, whatever floats your boat.
That's what our crew and religion is all about, right?

Of course, to each his own. There is no judging in our crew and religion.

Re: hi there

Well, men, women, children, and animals don't appreciate getting things shoved in them without permission.
Corpses however have automatically consented unless they said otherwise before death.
Is it necrophilia if she's alive when you start?

Re: hi there

On real pirate ships the closest to lookout was either the person in charge of navigation, called the Master, who was 3rd in command, or just a mate *mate = regular crew member* with really good eyes.

It depends on how far you've gotten before she dies.

Re: hi there

I'm thinking maybe we should like... not use so many references to buttsecks and necrophilia when welcoming people. They might just get the wrong idea...

To the new person: Hi! You have just met the craziest people here! If you've survived thus far, you might just make it to next week Biggrin

Well, look at it this way, if they read all that and are still willing to stay here, then their level of insanity is acceptable and they might possible survive here. If it scared them off, well, they probably would've left eventually anyways. We're just speeding up the process. Biggrin

Re: hi there

If I joined a forum that I thought was a support group for people who hate school, and then everyone keeps going on about buttsecks and other weird shit, I'd be a bit confused, and I might worry that I signed up in the wrong place...

Re: hi there

It's fine. I'll just have to represent the non-buttsecks side of SS Smile

What a hard job that'll be... Uhoh

Re: hi there

It doesn't matter, hardly anyone ever reads there own welcome topic after posting it.
Besides, the welcome forum is where our crew/religion lives until we get our own site.
