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.

Tongue Hello Everyone :D

I'm new! Just posting this to introduce myself.
...
So, yeah. Hi! I'm not very good at this.
My name is Bert Leonardo von Funyarinpa, but my friends call me Psyclops. I enjoy long walks on the beach, romantic candlelit dinners and the occasional killing spree uh... cookies.

By the way, I'm terrible at this whole social communication thing, so sorry if I'm a huge annoyance. I'll try hard not to be. Smile

RE: Hello Everyone :D

You're a huge annoyance. Now get the *bleep* out of my office *bleep*tard.
Wait. This isnt my office...

So welcome! Again i am the first troll you meet at the bridge and I shall ask thee three questions:
What is your quest?
What is your favorite color?
What is the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow?

Hello Everyone :D

Hi there, and welcome!

Is that your real name that you posted? I ask this for 2 reasons... 1) It's really unique and interesting... and 2) It's probably a bad idea to post that online, if it is your real name. Any random nut can find this on Google.

So... what do you do for fun? Smile

To answer your questions:
