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.

-SoulRiser

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.

We could make some sort of badass ninja street team. Go around local schools and put posters up and the like.

w00t Biggrin

i dig the street team idea, that'll get through to a lot of people that don't search the internet for anti-school stuff (well when i was still at school, i never would have expected to find a site like this...) so yeah.

banners are cool too. i remember that one small sig pic that Toucanman made, would look cool on forums. i have a lot of banners, but they're mostly animated with messages rather than good-looking.

i could make nicer ones...... but... i have this funny feeling someone here could probably do a better job Biggrin

Soul, which pic are you referring, the one with my name on it?

As for banners, let me get all artsy. I do consider myself an artist....>_>

I'm good with grungy stuff, brushes, effects, some photomanipulation, etc. In fact...

That's what I'm good at. Smile

let's use subliminal ads! you'll be on myspace and then some words flash "schoolsurvival.net you must go there now!"

seriously though, doc's right. we'll just get really spammed, it would be better to just advertise on forums with people who share some of the same basic opinions.

Although I framed my previous post in a garb of humour, I was being serious about my suggestion of creating a "streat team". By doing so, the School Survival site would be able to help other students and possibly allow silent screams of protest turn into full fledged teenage revolt.

The posters are a good idea. Get some and post them near schools and where teens congregate. I've been cooking up some ideas recently in this theme.

Someone could make banners and posters and then send them to members to get printed off somewhere (eg Kinkos). Graffiti can be useful but it's association is of violence and crime so might be detrimental to the site. Things such as revolting against school are good, but I don't think that putting the web address on it would be a good idea.

yeah, that would be really great. that's a lot like the general idea on the mission (RATS) page.

true that. lots of people will tend to take that the wrong way. and then we'll all be misunderstood... again :(

Quote:seriously though, doc's right. we'll just get really spammed, it would be better to just advertise on forums with people who share some of the same basic opinions.

spam is just one thing... that's easy to delete. it's getting annoying troll type people that are the worst. because deleting them would be bordering on the hypocritical. so yeah... while getting more people is good, and getting people with different views is good too, trolls are bad. always. Uhoh

Quote:Soul, which pic are you referring, the one with my name on it?

i'm pretty sure it was you that posted it... it was this narrow little banner thing saying something like 'member of school survival' on it... or was that someone else? Suspicious

by the way, that wallpaper thumbnail looks damn good. i'm sure the full version does too, it's just too big to download Rolleyes (damn you, Telkom!)

Quote:But how do you make banners? I like to graffiti... I could promote some stuff

graffiti banners/posters could look really good... ... hey wait isn't the site title logo like graffiti Laugh though i'm sure you could make it cooler than that Biggrin
