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.

But I'm not exactly crazy about it. Not being able to talk on here sucks, but I've been reading all the new topics.
I've been passing the time watching RoboCop 2. How's everyone else doing?

Good to know you're still alive... you grounded or something? (I do vaguely recall you saying something like that at some point... but wasn't that looooong ago?)

Welcome back. This forum has been in serious need of good doodles. Smile

I highly suggest Mobb Deep's albums The Infamous and Hell on Earth, if you have not listened to it yet.

Yeah, I've been feeling so crappy lately I haven't been able to draw much. Plus, the scanner makes so much noise, I haven't been able to post what I have done. Thanksgiving Break can't get there fast enough!

Welcome back, I'm sneaking on as well. Glad to see that you're still alive and insane, that's good. For if you somehow got your sanity back, we'd have to make you go insane again.

I'm sure I won't be sane for a while now! (Mostly thanks to all the crappy Smash Bros updates this week. RAGE!)

Does your base belong to them?

This has been a test of the emergency pointless argument system. Had this been a real pointless argument, someone would have been called a facist.

LOL. They do have my boxes!

I have 2, male and female, they're related, but look totally different.
The female has completely black fur, the male is orange/white. He looks like this cat:

I have cats.

I have a cat named Cheesepuff, she's a house cat. Another named Bitsy, she's inside and out. All of these are outside cats: One named Millhouse(he's nice), Snowy(he got ran over and got his tail amputated), Mittens(she's polydactyl), and Walnut(need to get him fixed).

Plus we're taking care of two of my grandma's kittens until we find a good home for them.
