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.

RE: Hi

Injustice sucks! We all feel for you.
So, can you tell us a bit about yourself? Hobbies, favorite color, tastes in music?
And welcome! Smile

RE: Hi

I just don't take it. Every time a teacher does something in-justifying to me, I tell them what I think of it. Got me in much trouble, but worth it. If a teacher does this to another student, I observe the situation and look if they need "help" or seem to want it. Trying to do everything as rational as possible.

Also, my favorite "color" is black - thats a habit I've got because of school. Music is
- Rammstein
- AC/DC
- "Die Apokalyptischen Reiter" (heavy metal, the old albums are awsome, and they are really awsome if you understand the meaning of the lyrics)
- Heaven shall burn

Sums it up, there are some "exotic" things like "Die Streuner" who make albums of old german drinking songs or Running wild or Alestorm...but well.

Hobbies are for a matter of fact Oil-Based painting, but thats pretty hard and I have almost no time to do it. So I mostly write little C++ Programms, nothing much, but enough to get basic understanding of the language. But only when I am not busy translating stuff for a cause I support.

I do not try to shove my penis in somebodys behind and I am certain not to take one up my own. Even if not taking a dick up your butt (I hope you realise I take that metaphoricly) can mean shoving it in somebody who wants you to take it.

RE: Hi

No problem. We might have a fuckin ocean between us, but we still think alike when it comes to being forced. Or when it comes to education systems.

Also, do you think I could take that zynix guy seriously?

RE: Hi

Sometimes people take the wrong people too seriously on here and it causes all kinds of... issues. So I'm just making sure. Biggrin
