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.

Same! I've been logging in more and more lately in the hopes that somebody else will be online. I won't be online today though... got a desktop to set up. Biggrin

SchoolSurvival Chat Function Arrived!

I'm going to stay in the chat from now on, whenever I'm on. Glad to see you folks there as well; I can confirm that the channel is indeed in use by at least some of the regulars.

For clarification: the channel is on irc.rizon.net, named #schoolsurvival. There's still maxh idling on #anti-school and #antischool on the same network.

There's also another SS channel on irc.school-survival.net. Right now there's only two channels, ##emo and #antischool, and only the latter has more than one person. AFAIK it's more a personal chat for the people who've been there for years but apart from Absent haven't really been on the forum recently. I used to go there back in the day, but I'm sticking to rizon and I urge you to do likewise.

Why so pessimistic?

Because Trar was in the process of performing a ragequit maneuver.

Try "/quit x" to make them leave IRC forever.

You know why.

You provided a lot of interesting liberal insight on revolutionary leftism, I'll give you that.

EDIT: We'll miss you.
