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.

Get every old people to these forums NOW. I just thought it be a good idea to see how everyone that's old here is doing (considering I got banned from dementia). Popcorn We get to hear the old ones sound like our grandparents over World War 2 while we be the kids who really don't care what so ever. Grouphug

Congratulations humanity,because you refuse to let go of the old and evolve you actually make people believe in 2012. Not only that, but you're the only species on Earth that were able to make it possible, now we get to sit until we die because we couldn't get to Mars. We have failed as a society and don't deserve our gifts to survive for this long. Maybe this is why dinosaurs are extinct, we sure aren't any better than the dirt you say we're created from. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pla...DvwSOFto#! Noo

1. No. The oldfags left for a reason.
2. Reunion implies there having been a union in the first place.
3. You got banned from SD for two reasons: They're SD-fags, and you're annoying.
4. War's not over yet. The oldfags quit before they could get anything done.
5. I care about the struggle at hand. All you care about is getting more attention from your fabled heroes.
6. Your poll doesn't make sense.

Well you could of at least cut me some slack, I make meaning full post half the time and golden post at least once every two days. Plus I intend to get annoying if you don't treat me right in the first place so don't blame me. They couldn't get anything done because they were all talk like us but never done anything or applied anything to their lives so that they could find and do things about it until it got on the news. To think with about 600 members or something we could of made at least one breakthrough by now!

^ This is the Internet, where no one is entitled to "being treated right". Trust me when I say that I am offering you a mercy.

The oldfags were all talk, of course, but for what purpose? They became disillusioned with the fight against the system and decided to waste their time instead. Now is our time to actually get things done rather than calling it quits.

Let's get down to business rather than trying to remember the good old days we weren't even around for.

There will never be a "reunion". Most members of pre-May 2012 SS have extremely different personalities and political views to those who joined after Soul revived the forums.

- No one on SD is anarchist
- School is rarely talked about on SD
- The average SDers is aged between 15 and 20. Most SSers are aged between 11 and 16.
- SDers quit because they didn't see any reason that justified Soul originally closing the forums. There was no warning. Not because the new members are younger or anarchist.
- SD is more strict than SS. If someone is wasting time, posting pure shit and nothing of actual value, they will be banned, ignored or rejected. This is part of the reason many SDers didn't return to SS; there was a lot of shitposting at times.
- Most of SD discusses politics, philosophy or jokes around, as opposed to SS who mostly discusses youth rights or education reform.

RE: Reuion

I joined May of this year, obviously. Forum was decent but there was always a ton of shitposting and hivemindedness going on; not a lot of variety in topic nor opinion. No post seemed to be relevant to / in helping the website's cause. Just a bunch of generally same-minded folk arguing amongst themselves, trolls joining in every so often (progressed to always) for the hell. Some members were commendably intellectual in how they got across their thoughts, most of which had meaning. The majority, not so much... and then Soul shut the bitch down. Erryone b hur 'n' on SD fo' der lulz, c. Least it seems so. SD is really only slightly different, at least to me.

Lol'd at oldfags voting for the nostalgia option on the polls.

SS and SD (by the way, they changed their name to SD rather than SD) are like two different factions. Neither is completely nor utterly superior to the other, but they both operate differently. I prefer SS, myself.

I'm beginning to prefer SS. Problem is immaturity, fucking patronization, bad moderating, lack of any strictness whatsoever leading to mass amounts of shitposters joining up, too many pointless topics and too many hormonal, pretentious kiddies whining about minute bull. Needs to change. Just my point of view, hope it gets taken in to consideration.

Edit: Also, randomly shutting down the forum on an active, dedicated community was awfully selfish and thoughtless. Makes you second guess folk, which is why SD's users don't want to come back. That, and the tremendous, seeming monopolization of SS by all aforementioned factors / things.

It was over the Summer so it wasn't like we could talk about much at the time anyway so don't you think that's a little harsh. I've seen SD's comment and they're no more mature than us anyway. Cuckoo

It wasn't only over the Summer. It's way too prevalent now, seven weeks after my current term started.

Al: My cheeks are perfectly unchapped. I'm just honest in hopes of, as I already said, having mods / admin take all in to consideration for improving.

I like how comparing SS and SD is like comparing limited government to oppressive government.

In SS, SoulRiser is the only administrator, and she uses her administrative powers only when absolutely necessary (to protect viewers, by moving trollishness into the unseen basement), sort of like how the explicit powers of the U.S. Constitution work. In SD, there are multiple administrators who ban fagix and other undesirables on sight - it's a bit more authoritarian.

RE: Reuion

I wrote a lot but decided against posting it. I'm prone to writing a lot, so I might write a lot again.

I think it's kind of hard for people to understand that some of us sort of grew up here. I was fifteen when I joined. I'm ninteen now. I would never admit it back then, but I was kind of ignorant. Not dumb, but a little ignorant. This site taught me alot.

I don't even want to think about how shit would've turned out if I never discovered /ss/. The people I've met on here too... They've become pretty important to me, to an extent. I've talked with some of the SD/SS members about shit I've never told anyone IRL ever, except for my best friend. I think I know a lot of the members around here more than I know some of the people in my family.

I'm not sure how accurate the timer that times how much time we've spent on the forums is, and I'd like to know if it started counting when we got the new forum update or when we first signed up and it somehow got transfered? If it's accurate, or not, I've spent a lot of time on here. Countless hours. Spilling out my feelings, planning, plotting, learning, teaching...

I don't know man, it's just been a huge part of a lot of our lives I think. I don't feel that emotional about it because it's still here sort of... Even when it closed down I wasn't that "hurt" because that happened like 3 times and I thought it'd be up in a few days or a week anyway. Once we moved to /SD/ shit was pretty cool again. Then old /ss/ opened back up, idk man. It was like, all of that time spent on here and it just closes like that?

Anyway, if this place ever goes off line I hope to god the posts aren't permenantly lost. It's like a fucking time capsul for me. A dynamic, massive, time capsul. I can go back nearly 4 years and see what I was like. I want to develop a program to download all of my posts or something. Meh. Idk.

Take this for what it is, some oldfag being nostalgic and shit.

I make daily backups to gmail and another FTP server, so as long as I'm not dead, I'll make sure this stays up (even if read-only, lol). But I hope there won't be a need to do that again.

And thanks for that explanation, it makes a lot of sense. I hadn't really thought about it like that.

RE: Reuion

Soul, will you name a person to take your place when you grow away from here? This forum is needed by some people (me), and its a great place to converse. I regularly go on here, and life wouldn't be the same without it. I'm getting towards sharing my views with classmates! Never would that have happened without you guys. You have helped me get my thoughts straight on this, and for that I thank you. LONG LIVE SS!

It's extremely unlikely that I will 'grow away' from here... but in the event that I die or something, I know of a couple other people who I trust enough to take over. But they don't really come and post here anymore, so meh.
