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.

I would definitely hire an accountant because I'd have no idea how to handle that money smartly. Take a portion and spread it among friends and family. Spend some on myself obviously. Donate to worthy charities after much research. I'd invest to keep my money growing. Likely in Sudbury schools I'd open across the country.

Good luck with that. People tend to get stupid when they think relationship will "advantage" them. Family and Friends are as trustable as they aren't.

Split the money into two parts, initially.

1)Savings
2)Investment

Then when investment has paid off, use some to purchase stationery. Use said stationery to send angry letters off to anyone who thinks that school is compulsory. Not in England, it's not.

If I seem rude to you, please call me on it gently.

Change into $1 bills and BURN IT ALL!

Speak about committing a federal crime. I will have destroyed one billion dollars of circulating currency.

Why don't you use half for criminal things, and the other half to bribe the cops off?

I like the school idea, though.

Can you not see the chance for investment?! Start a business, then burn all the profit you earn! That way you could burn more in the long run! Razz

No. Spend all that profit on figuring out how to turn water into gasoline. And then turn all the water into gasoline. THEN burn it all.

YES!

Turn all the water on the planet to gasoline, maybe the water in the human body as well, then light it all and watch the planet BURN!

Do whatever I could with the money to get our message out.
