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.

Basically, they were angry at the nobility and the clergy and said they were going to write their own constitution to create a constitutional monarchy. They split off and formed the national assembly. The king locked them out of their meeting place, then they went to an indoor tennis court and continued.

I dun know, lol. They basically just sat around and made a constitution and shit. The king was largely reduced to a figure head. I'm not sure about specific changes, though. They basically temporarily took over.

Quote:links between french declaration of rights of man and citizen and us dec of indy

The french declaration basically laid out the groundwork and said that these are the confines in which ruling should be done. People have basic rights, and they musn't be breached. Same as the U.S declaration, but the U.S declaration differed because the french declaration didn't declare independence from another country.

Jacues Necker was the kings financial advisor, who was fired for advising the king to stop spending so lavishly. Which pissed off the general public.

Cashier de dolences were basically a list of complaints the three different estates had.

Forgot this. They made a constitutional monarchy, but the king was supposed to be a figure head. Most of the power the king has is removed and they basically make a body to make laws. How did that effect the enlightenment? Not sure, but to some degree it had to encourage other countries to get rid of their kings. Also, radicals wanted to keep fighting and get rid of the king entirely. So that might answer that.
