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.

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: Yahoo might be buying Tumblr??

If they buy tumblr, the amount of porn they will receive is unfathomable. And knowing yahoo, they'll try to make it "kid-friendly" and fill it with advertisements and sponsored buttons everywhere. If they buy it, it'll be the demise of tumblr. And people wonder why the other 4 websites they bought are closed or dead.

Kid-friendly?
Does that mean my bookmarked tumblr pages containing erotic images will disappear? 0_o

In seriousness though, Yahoo actually had porn ads on their site once. It was there for about a week I think, then I guess they finally got it.

RE: Yahoo might be buying Tumblr??

It's confirmed: Yahoo is buying Tumblr for 1.1 billion dollars and promises not to screw it up. Which of course means that they're probably going to screw it up beyond repair and alienate a huge percentage of the user base. They're obviously expecting to make their invested amount back and then some. Tumblr is full of advertising unfriendly content and users who are hostile to ads, so I don't see how this can possibly go down well for Yahoo unless Tumblr undergoes a complete change in its demographic forced by the new Yahoo overlords.

I'm waiting for the obligatory "I for one welcome our new Yahoo overlords." post.
