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.

Post rating plugin

I installed a plugin that adds a thumbs-up and thumbs-down to every post, so people can rate posts... let's see how that goes. Razz

RE: Post rating plugin

Dejavu. I thought we tried something like this lol. Anyway, I think this is a decent idea, as long as people take it even semi-seriously and avoid randomly voting up or down for no reason.

At least this time it isn't tied to the reputation... that went to hell fast. Razz

I can't remember why you guys got warned. lol

I think you often go on rage fits, where you hand out warnings like candy on Halloween. Your rage is so intense that, like someone who gets wasted and remembers nothing, you have no recollection of why or how you handed out said warnings.

RE: Post rating plugin

I think a reputation thing would be a cool idea if it wasn't linked to posts. I could see how it might go to shit though.
I liked the friends list on phpbb, Kinda similar but minus the potential for abuse.

I thought we tried exactly that before, and it ended up being a "who's popular" war. Or something.

Actually, it ended up with 5555 and thought criminal thumbs downing everyone for the lulz. SS can't be trusted with the power of the dislike.

I knew this was going to happen. No rating plugin with a downvote feature will ever work on SS. Happy now, Reptorian? Laugh

No one would care about upvotes. Except for maybe newfags, but they'll soon learn anyway.
"People will refrain from saying something to avoid downvotes"? If they're stupid enough to believe that then it's good they don't post.
