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.

Having some problem with my headset

Hey people, I was trying to record my voice with my headset with the Windows Sound Recorder, but for some reason, no sound comes out of it. Any advice?

This is my headset:

Send a pic of your actual headset so SS might be able to see the problem

He said they're in the right plugs. So I'm assuming it's NOT a usb one. Check your computers sound devices in the Control Panel.
Make sure the system is directing the sound through the headset instead of speakers. That's if your sound doesn't work either.
So does sound come through the headphones at all? Or just the mic doesn't record?

Maybe you haven't connected it properly..
I use to have a similar problem with my headset, I'll post how I fixed it when I remember.
