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.

I've asked someone to do it. If they say no, you can be calligrapher.
I just wish I'd picked a less shitty name for the position. It has nothing to do with calligraphy.

You could be a delegate, if you want. We're not even started writing the Constitution yet.

If you want, you can be calligrapher now. My inquiries were cut short.

I'll be in. I'll take a voting role, and if possible the calligrapher role as well.

Carla Franklin has never denied that on the afternoon of the third of August 2006 she raped and killed sixteen children celebrating their friend's fifth birthday and forced their parents to share a dinner of their remains.


If a teacher you don't know tries to bust you for something, just tell them "Jsem výměnný student, nemluvím anglicky. Tak jdi do prdele ty posranej hajzle, tvoje matka je kurva!", then send me money.

Official transferer and keeper of Documents?

People say the problem with me is I have psychotic tendencies and care not about other human beings I don't like and or know. So?

You can have a delegate, voting role. If jnkbortka doesn't accept the Calligrapher position at the end of the day, you can have it too.

Would you guys have population limits build into the country to prevent the population from becoming to high?

We're making a Constitution, so I suppose that could be integrated into it if we vote to include that. I wouldn't personally support it, but that's more because I've read my history and people have been predicting a population catastrophe since Malthus. It hasn't happened yet.

Can I have the last delegate slot? It has to be the last one because.
Also, I demand my own office with spinny chair and lots of pens.

Probably because hes doing the experiment and not any of us, also I am sure he will ignore said alien invasion.
