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: It has begun

I thought "chilling" effects only removed things that hinted at children and sex in some way. Hmm looks like it isn't always about protecting the children, what a surprise :/

No it's not... must be the shitty quality of the videos themselves that you're converting to mp3s.

I've used those MP3 converter things too using 1080P youtube videos and there's still a noticeable drop in quality.

Who gives a shit if you're getting it free? Usually the quality is good enough.
Otherwise just torrent a high quality rip.

Demonoid.


Also youtube is great for Albanian music because they don't care too much about copyright. Hell when I buy an Albanian CD in New York I bet that the salesperson has nothing to do with the artist lmao

RE: It has begun

Demonoid sucks ass, their search function is dildos. Also the problem with their cute little "gated" community is that you don't get as many torrents, sure you will get the popular stuff, but the fringe stuff is next to impossible to find.

Well yes that is the trade off for better security. Which is why I still use other public torrent sites.

I just hate the air of pseudo-superiority, hurr were always on closed invitation or you have to get invited by one of our 5 members, easy enough to just generate a key, or my personal favorite use admin/password

I never really notice any quality loss.

Then again: Black metal is best recorded with a WW2 H.A.M. radio and 240p is the HQ of the black metal world.

Weird eh??
