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.

SS Conflict Theory

The reason why SS has been successful as an afterburner aside from helping people vent their frustrations about school is the developement of mutual culture based on the facilitation of group struggle. Alow me to reiterate.

When SS was first started when we had old members who were at the tine all new members like Kirby, and happy camper. So we started philosophy threads like "why school is a hinderence to learning" and such. This grew into something.

If you look at threads startded by new members they follow the same trend "I think school is unhelpful because.." That flame doesn't kindle since old members outnumber new 20/1 and most of us have already discussed those topics in the past therefore feel too lazy to answer the newer members.

So if it isn't school as the subject of our interest that keeps old members around than it has to be the grotesque humour that has been forged through time of chatting with the same people, and the idea of dramatique entertainment such as
Justin. Vatman as a mod , freak as a mod, Hanneh deleting 5's posts, Apathy, Tdf's trash, 5 spamming lemonparty,

SS is built on conflict

Re: SS Conflict Theory

Not really, SS is based on our hatred of contemporary society, not fighting

Re: SS Conflict Theory

Mystery is correct but old news is old.

Why else would we have maniacs who yell about the revolution and how they'll destroy shit.

Re: SS Conflict Theory

I chuckled greatly, dramatic entertainment shall begin shortly. *Passes out a Victorian-themed costume to each member*

Ah no time more, alas friends...the comedy is over. (Beethoven last words (sport of)

Do you know how many times the world was found out to be round by different people? I don't know either but I assume it was done a few times! It's not conflict that started SS's "glorious" history so much as a mutual loneliness...do you think a guy like kirby suddenly came to the realization that school was bad on this website; or do you think that wrote what he did to fulfill an internal need for acceptance?

Personally I wouldn't bet on the former; especially when the world, much like this forum...has found its curves.

Re: SS Conflict Theory

Is good point. People (me included) who have seen the same thing said over and over again tend to not want to respond to people who are just discovering it for the first time. I suppose this kind of pushes newbies away a bit... maybe.

This isn't really even an anti-school forum anymore, it's a bunch of people who talk shit together. Razz

If you didn't already know this, raise your hand.



No raised hands. Kay.


But maybe we should note that in the Read Me forum...
