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.

Hello.

I'm quite amused by the fact that the language is "British English". Just saying.

In any case, I'm ~!~<3. You can call me Apple. Because Apple is a very cool name, if I do say so myself. I'm a Jewish Protestant attending a private Catholic all-girl's high school. Actually, if you ask the Catholics, I'm Catholic too, as my family has joined the church for the tuition discount. Scratchchin

I don't necessarily hate school, but I do consider myself to be an advocate of first amendment rights. Which don't disappear upon starting school.

Actually thought of, typed, and posted by apple.
Probably edited by apple, too.

Re: Hello.

Welcome to SS, Apple. What a tasty name. I am Randomcat, shatterer of worlds, purveyor of randomness, and I enjoy long walks. I have a feeling we'll get along well.

Welcome to the forums. Straitjacket fitting is in Room 46, and just stay away from Moriko's "Special Room" and Zherny's "Happy Time" and you'll be fine.

Re: Hello.

Shhh! Loxor don't blow my cover!!

Hello, hello Zhenerboh. I think I'll smuggle in my sanity, but I also plan to stick around awhile. [P.S. Tasteless jew jokes are tasteless. Apples are not tasteless.]

'Ello Randomcat. I am convinced you are random, but not that you are a cat. By the way, if you destroy any of the worlds I take over I'll be rather irritated.

Thank you for the welcome, Desert Fox.

It seems like someone always says that in every welcome thread nowadays. "Don't listen to x, listen to me."

Oh, not to worry. Randomcat is always cautious to avoid detonation of worlds owned by personal acquaintances and above. However, if said worlds are accidentally annihilated in the process of another, or mistaken for someone else's, fair and adequate compensation will be provided, in the form of our mutual choosing.
