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.

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.

Changed my theme just so I could read your text more easily Wink

Sorry about the stalker D:

Would it be too much asking what country you're from?

Oh, that's fine. I'm in Malaysia - home of the world's biggest and smelliest flower; the Rafflesia.

Well whoever your friend is - he's right. Garbage is all that has survived. That and the bugs.

I like the way you format your posts, personally.

RIP GORE GOROTH

He was an hero. He will always be remembered.

because everyone else is using dark themes which makes it nearly unreadable unless you select it or something.

It's not that I don't like it but I am using the purple black format and makes it difficult to read it.

RE: 5 hours till my first day; && I still haven't done shit

Home sweet home. Too bad my joy is short lived - does anyone here study Internet & Communication Technology as well? 'Cuz it's currently in trend to suddenly be doing four long winded essays on a sad topic.

On the other hand, I got to see the teacher's pet of my class to pull another one of his nose-sticking suck ups. Quite a show indeed - considering my professor knew what he was trying to pull.

I can't wait for Friday, I've got some plans to skip the last four hours of studies.

Ooh - does anyone have an interesting story?
PS. bulgvar, get some new jokes. Seriously.
