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.

Re: Hello There!

It's apparently the original way to spell it when Ashely started being used as a name... then people got lazy and switched "leigh" in pretty much every name with "y". But's it's going to be hell to spell when she's older. We have a confusing last name too. It'll be like I have to do with my name. "(So and so name) with a K, right off the bat) I looked into it, my family is literally the only one with that last name. Why can't my last name be Smith?

Re: Hello There!

My last name is quite possibly the easiest one to make fun of in the whole history of mankind with the exception one one (Cass-collin will the yellow phone cover) I crack up poor kid

You obviously didn't read the other six pages-- it is quite difficult to creep me out!

It's a common thing. I just think AWOL has a funny way of wording things.

Re: Hello There!

Since I have a very monotone voice, I rely on stressing key parts of a sentence for people to completely grasp the meaning of my statements.

Also, I talk in a convoluted fashion, so people tend to just skip over like 90% of the small words in my sentences which can lead to some mild confusion.

Quite observant. It actually settled an argument between myself and someone else.

Actually I hadn't seen the thread at all since I'd last been on.

Re: Hello There!

Well, whether its mostly bumping or conversation, I'd say eight pages on a welcome thread makes a person feel loved!
