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.

MyBB conversion

So that took a bit longer than expected... let's just say there were some... complications. Suspicious

Let me know if anything's broken horribly. I tested everything I could think of testing and it seems fine. Might be some funky font sizes left over, but I think I changed most of those.

I do realize mods and admins currently have funky username colours and stuff. I will fix that as soon as I figure out how. For now, enjoy teh_pinkness. Razz

All old links to forums and threads should redirect to the proper new place.... aaand I modded the default thing that displays "New Posts" since it was based too much around whatever your 'last visit' time was set to. Now it resembles phpBB's one more... Can't remember what else I did... shitloads of search and replace in MySQL... yeah... I don't wanna do another forum conversion anytime soon. Razz

You can remove that shit by going to the usergroup listing, selecting the group you want to edit and deleting the markup preceding and following the name.

Seems the codes for hidden, center, youtube thingies aren't showing above the post box. Any idea how to fix that, Faby? Razz

You can still type them in manually though... but who wants to do that?

RE: MyBB conversion

This is fucking bizarre. Will there be any themes resembling the old one? I don't like having poster info above the post as opposed to the side (Figured it out) and I miss the "My Posts" and "New post" buttons. (Found new posts but still miss "My Posts")
Also, Avatar size limit has been reduced to 100. Think you can bump it back up to 150?

Edit: I really like quick edit (lol)
Is there anyway to eliminate the redirect box. Whatever you click on it always pops up and it's damn annoying, you always have to click on the "don't wait" button to make it fuck off.

Also, you should really add this themes:

And this one for teh lulz:

RE: MyBB conversion

Also, you guys can switch to the classic view (info on the left, post on the right) by going to the user control panel and finding the "classic view" option. But I'll automatically force the themes I make to use the classic view anyway, if you're not in a hurry...

RE: MyBB conversion

Oh, so all classic view does is put the user info on the left? It doesn't do anything about the themes being the polar opposite of easy to use? Dammit.

Define "easy to use" and I'll make sure to make future themes more user friendly.

RE: MyBB conversion

I'm slowly enjoying the transition more and more. I mean I can't figure out how to make things hidden and some other small features, but I really like the forum jump feature, and how easy it is to moderate.

Wat. The quick-mod tools do seem to be a little easier to use, but the main mod CP appears to be utterly useless.
