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.

Exclamation Straight up retarded school blocking system

Basically my school's system of blocking stuff is just retarded. The one thing that bothers me the most is that they blocked Gmail and Hotmail. BUT NOT YAHOO MAIL! What the hell is up with that? Also that my damn school doesn't even allow any programs to be ran by a USB.... They don't even allow updates of preinstalled programs to occur without administrative permissions. The people who manage the damn computers have no idea what they are doing, they don't even update simple programs. I can literally take all of their jobs and manage the computers myself. Even important sites that deal with education is blocked such as this game site called coolmath-games.com

Damn computer managers are complete idiots. -_-

Straight up retarded school blocking system

Every middle/high school ever to exist is like this. Why do most people above the age of 30-something not know how to computer correctly?

Straight up retarded school blocking system

YOU SHOULD SEE MY BLOCK SYSTEM!(Not what you think it is) THE GROUP US IN CLASSES LIKE IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL BECAUSE THEY'RE TOO LAZY TO KEEP TRACK OF US INDIVIDUALLY! YOU LITERALLY CAN'T CHANGE SCHOOLS WITHOUT BEING AWKWARD HAVING TO KNOW EVERYONE! THEY HAVE A POINT SYSTEM AGAIN LIKE WE'RE IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AND FORCE YOU TO EAT LIKE IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL! YOU CAN'T RUN A MIDDLE SCHOOL FULL OF TEENAGERS AS IF THEY WERE KIDS WHO BLINDLESSLY DO WHAT THE'RE TOLD! I GUESS MOST "SMART" PEOPLE ARE ALWAYS OBEDIENT AS WELL HUH!?!??!

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

RE: Straight up retarded school blocking system

i checked, coolmath-games.com is a legit game site and not a proxy.

my classmates haven't learned about yahoo mail yet, so that hasn't been blocked at skool...and i'm not gonna be the one to tell them bc i enjoy being able to delete all my chaturbate emails before i get home (even though it doesn't matter because my parents don't check or anything) and having the ability to txt people if i so choose form my computer.

But there have been times when i wasn't able to get on a site because it was blocked for a reason completely different than what the site actually is, i don't remember the site (most likely a game site) but it was blocked for porn...don't know why it was considered porn though because i couldn't get in and look at it...then there is a certain section of the site cafepress.com that shows you designs for panties and boxers...if i go directly to it from the main page then it is blocked for porn (fair enough, even though it's just a picture of the underwear and not a person wearing them) but if i go to a specific design and then look at it, i can get on just fine.

The less you try to control things, the less you need to.

I've seen so much shit done to youth and for some reason, this has made me angrier than I've felt in years. Abuse and oppression happens all over the world. It's a terrible reality of modern society, but we've all accepted that it happens and we're doing what we can to fight it and build a better world.
But this...this mindless, condescending disrespect toward people who have no legal voice with which to defend themselves, this reduction of parents' betrayal into a cheap crack about kids being computer-savvy...it's like watching a surgeon joke about life insurance while his patient bleeds to death on the operating table. The media's job is to protect society from oppression and they've drawn a clear line between the people worth protecting and the people that don't matter. How can they people sleep at night?

You're a journalist. DO. YOUR. FUCKING. JOB.

Command prompt is blocked, so the batch file wouldn't run... also if I do manage to do that somehow, I would get in trouble since we all have our individual log ins.

Straight up retarded school blocking system

People just look at typical stereotypes thinking America was the same it was in the 1800's and we have absolutely nothing to complain about.

Congratulations humanity,because you refuse to let go of the old and evolve you actually make people believe in 2012.

For command prompt, try the following:
a) Rename your batch (.bat) files to ".cmd". It does (basically) the same thing (but with an older interpreter), and *should* run when you click on them.
b) Try the windows run dialog. Hit "ctrl+r" and if something pops up, try both "cmd" and "command.com". cmd will probably be blocked, but command.com is the above older interpreter and will most likely work. However, beware command.com. because it's older, it only supports 8.3 files (aka <8 characters>.<3 characters>), not any longer. The entire 'run dialog' may be blocked, however (as it is at my school).

Also, as for the blocked websites, I would (again) suggest Tor. It's an onion-routing network, so the school network can't moderate or view your traffic. You just have to get a tor proxy running on your computer... Maybe I'll do a tutorial later.

In the meantime, if the run dialog works, but not cmd or command.com, try 'regedit' and see if it works in the run dialog. If it does, tell me. I'll mess around and see if I can get anything worthwhile in there.

If you say something I do not care about, I will ignore you. This is not an invitation to say it louder.
