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.

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.

Publicity list for RATS

Here's a list of places which are good to submit a little description of RATS along with the link, to attract more people to the cause:

NEWSGROUPS (USENET):
alt.activism.youth-rights
alt.activism.student
alt.politics.youth
uk.education.staffroom (and any other teacher-specific ones you can find - hey, who knows how many of them might agree with us)

MESSAGE BOARDS:
http://pub45.ezboard.com/bhighschoolsucks69579
http://www.youthactionnet.org/discussion/
[its damn tough finding decent message boards with relevant topics that people actually VISIT... or am i seriously missing something?]
basically just post to whatever boards you regularly visit. anything politically-minded or so.

-------------------

Please add others to this post that I didn't list here. Also it would be best if some of us would post OTHER messages there too so that we can become like 'regulars', and then add a RATS link in our sigs or something.

Also, post it on links pages and stuff like that. Works good for search engines apparently.

BEST of all still, use those printable posters the site has, put em up at your school! its best to go local first, then spread from there.. i'll post my results and findings in here.

Before 2006, SS used HTML for post formatting. Now it's BBcode, so now HTML looks like plain text.
