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.

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. Send me a message if you'd like to keep in touch with me & Steve.

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.

You get whatever you need, and you can't break the laws of physics, unless you include the word "gogogogol" in the title (don't know why, just felt like it)

I would build a 1000m high model of myself, then decorate it like a christmas tree. I would then build a missile launcher in it, that launches gogogogol missiles hat can blow up huge statues of other people, to make myself dominate in the very competitive world of giant likenesses of yourself business.

I'd substitute (not break) the laws of physics with those of Minecraft, and build enormous cubic fortresses.

That, or I'd build a gogogogol elevator to the moon.

That's genius, substituting the laws of physics. I was thinking about replacing gogogogol with notch, but that seemed a little sad on my part,

Considering that there might be alternative realities anyway, why not alternative laws of physics? Or at least, individual groups of laws that are uniform, but have different effects throughout dimensions.

a machine that let's me travel to other dimensions (such as the world of your favorite sitcom, or 40 year old British TV show about a guy who can only die 12 times before something weird happens to the planet) then i'd get a gun and travel to the world of the 40 year old tv show and force The Doctor to let me be one of his companions and we'd have epic adventures throughout time and relative dimension in space

With that dimension thing, I would go to a dimension where whatever I imagine would happen. Albeit, that could go disasterly wrong, but still would be fun!

Why not just build a machine that pwns gods face off. That would solve nothing, and be expensive! Nobody wins!
