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.

-SoulRiser

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.

Golly, there sure is a lot of you here! 38O *curtsies to everyone*

I wriggled into here because I was angry about some stuff on here and not because I hate school, even though I think it's perfectly ok for you to disagree with the school system, but now I'm just here to tell you about Homestuck. You really want to hear about Homestuck, right?

Oh and also talk about some impurrtant stuff on the controversial opinions thread but I'm afraid that by mentioning that here the acrid bile that swills within it shall spill into our cheery wonderbowl and the noxious fuming substance will sear through our cheer and expose the grinding sinew and snapping ligaments that lie beneath, as clumps of hair and gristle drift to the surface homestuck

You and Stephanie Meyer would get along just fine with all the adjectives you used to describe that post about SS and Homestuck, cuttlefish. By the way, did you spell perfect as purrfect on purpose?

This thought actually passed through my mind a few times as she put the word Homestuck into virtually every sentence.
