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.

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. Send me a message if you'd like to keep in touch with me & Steve.

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.

well, i don't have photoshop yet but if there was going to be a cover i'd kinda like to design it. sounds cool though, that would be awsome if we could actually do something like that... Scratchchin

yeah, you can put it on the site. but i do think i should go over it a little first, just to make sure there's no big misspellings or stuff i left out. I'll tell you when it's ready.

and thanks guys, the reviews on this site are so much better than the nitpicking crap you get at school. Biggrin

:biggrin:

i started reading part 1 again, there are actually quite a few typo's in the first part Wasntme

and also sometimes bits are kinda unclear, like the part where Joe is in the construction yard and the gym teacher yells at him, i got the impression he was far away, yet then the next line he's close enough to kick him in the balls.

in later parts you put a lot more detail in than you did in the beginning Smile

am i starting to sound like a teacher yet? Uhoh

yeah, i know there's a lot of typos. i was writing it really fast cause i was getting into it, and didn't notice stuff. but i copy/pasted it all to a word document and fixed most of them, i'll just send it to you when i'm done with it.

and about that, the teacher was leading a class on a run. so they were moving towards each other. it's not that big of a deal though.

and NO WITCHBURNING! if we can't trust the administrator then we can't trust anything. stop doing the damn Macarthy impression! Uhoh

oh hey, there was one thing though. does anybody have any suggestions for mistakes that need to be corrected, or things that could be improved? I need some actual feedback here if i'm going to revise it for posting.

either way's fine, whatever's easier.

and SLITZ, i don't think the government would get rid of it (look at some of the stuff out there: V for Vendetta, Faranheit 911, etc...) but can you imagine how much that would cost? all the explosions and destruction and stuff? even if it was animated it would still be really hard to do. i think it's fine as a story Yes

you know, you could get something if you were one of the actors. Well I dont what you look like, so how can i know if you look like one of the people.


i know, we could make a comic book series, then take each panel and make a story line, and animate it ourselves. Though it may a very crude version at first, we could always improve on the animation and sound effects and that shit. Well i dont know, it was an idea.

well, i just got your pictures in my email and fortunatly, there wasnt a virus on them, because that usually happens when i get atached pictures an/or files. I will creat a cover and the animation will take a while, because it takes like 20 frames to lift a gun or pick the thing off a grenade or something. its pretty intricate, but well figure it out for sure. something like this will take us well about a year or so working together. Its a big project.

heh, yeah i know how that feels. i based him on me, and my school experiances and fantasies about what i'd like to do (although i'm not sure i could just kill people either, unless they were trying to kill me) i guess most people here have something in common, huh?

and pyro, i'm glad my pix didn't fuck up your ocmputer. ;D i'm learning more about photoshop and stuff like that, so whatever you need me to do, just say so.
