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.

For breaking the timestamp machine.
Timestamp machine = machine that stamps passes so when they are returned to teachers teachers know where the students have been.
My friend broke it by shoving a pack of post-it notes in the pass-slot.

School libraries never have anything good anyways. Except maybe internet access, but it's usually contaminated with censorwares, keyloggers, and all that other stuff.

The only good signature is a dead signature.

Library is a great place for fun if your school is loose in discipline.

Re: My friend got banned from the library today

My school's library has a couple of computers that are only supposed to be used to search the databse of books and find where they are, so Internet Explorer's always open and on full screen so students don't do other stuff (the people at my school are pretty stupid).

Sometimes when I'm in there I'll change it back to regular size, switch the "lang" variable in the address bar to some random language, then switch it back to full screen.

It usually causes a few students some serious confusion.

Re: My friend got banned from the library today

My friend got banned from the library 'cause he kept slapping my ass. That was a fun day. I hit him with a hardback.

Whoa, it was never my intention to brag
but I got him where I want him now...

Mine has actually pretty good books. It's quite small (one tiny room), but the books are mostly good.

What kinda pisses me off is that there's only one encyclopedia, Britannica. I don't know what idiot decided to buy an English-language encyclopedia for a Czech school... While the more advanced older students can use it with few problems, one third of the first years don't know a word of English.

Another advantage is that most of the textbooks are there. So if I forget my textbook, I borrow it from the library, and then don't get yelled at in class.

There's no internet access though, we have a computer lab for that. The computer lab is available all day to students who don't have class (though it's sometimes crowded, I can't always get on a computer when I want). There's no censoring software (they just block your account if they catch you doing something they don't like), and there's AVG which should guard against most spyware (though I still don't use school computers to log in to any important accounts, I just don't trust them that much).

Don't take life so seriously, it isn't permanent.
