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.

Split threads

There have been alot of split threads recently. I was thinking adding a "Split Threads" section to The Basement might be a good idea. Keep more worthy splits out of the recycle bin. If they are blatant flaming or utter shit posting they can go into frag or bin. Just seems like it would keep things more organized.

RE: Split threads

Also make them not show up in "view new posts"?
...As an option I guess that could be a good idea.

I dunno if that's possible. If it is it would be nice.

I could do that the same way I do with the basement currently... join a group to be able to see it.

I'm not sure it's really worth the effort though. Split threads that are not utter crap will go in whichever forum is most appropriate... Random kind of is for random crap anyway, so people will have to join a group to see it anyway, and... I honestly don't care if it clutters up Random.

If enough people want this I'll add it I guess. Razz

RE: Split threads

You could make it a sub of random and set it as a group view so you don't have it showing up in today's posts. Dunno if it's worth it, depends on how hard it is to make new forums.

RE: Split threads

It's not much of a big deal, but sometimes it can be real fucking annoying. Especially when most splits are from Bulgvar. Clogs up my "View New Posts" area.
