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.

How's it going?

Hey, SS!

I've been with NYRA and SnipeMe since like 2004, but hadn't actually come over here yet. But of course I have... heard things. Scary things.

Re: How's it going?

I've read your posts, and seen you around NYRA quite a bit. You seem like a big deal over there. Anyway, this place is pretty scary. I'd be careful, strange things have happened.

Welcome aboard. Laugh

I know. I guess I was sort of dragged down by life for awhile. I didn't come on to this site for awhile either. Speaking of this place... all those 'things' you heard about this site are most likely true. You've been warned.

The scary things you've heard are probably all true... The scarier ones are even more likely to be true. Razz

It's what you haven't heard about that you should be worried about. Cool

And you have officially been greeted by the voracious Vatman.

Sup Sci. Sorry I haven't been trolling NYRA as much as you've all come to expect from Eddy.

Re: How's it going?

Ah, there you are, Eddy. Was wondering what your SN over here was these days. Razz

Of course, most of the things I've heard about SS have come from you, so you can imagine what I'm expecting...

I haven't been beaten up and robbed by dwarves yet, though... suppose I should give it time.

Yeah, that doesn't usually happen immediately.

Also, don't forget the alligators. And the pile of sanity we keep at the door is starting to smell funny and is attracting lots of flies.

Yeah, I thought I came across the alligators not too long ago... turns out they were crocodiles.
