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.

-SoulRiser

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.

New account? New account. Seems like things have really shaken up since I left got banned.

Probably should point out that I got unbanned (due to a server catastrophe, but that's beside the point really, Soul approved).

You may have met my fellow ex-banned member, Jesusaurisrex. We got banned together, it was a special moment for us.

Anyway, I'd love to see what is essentially a new community by now. Come in, say hi, I don't bite.

Let me just let the newbies in on your nice little record:

You were banned because during the Japanese Earthquake and Tsunami you and jesusaurusrex got on Google's person finder and had a bunch of fun being immature douchebags reporting people missing or something. Rebelnerd, a highly respected and valued member of the SS community at the time (although a bit politically misguided, I must say) decided to leave SS for the most part because of this.

Also it's not an arse, it's an ass. And it's not a stick, it's a way of life.

If you think they're bad, you should probably apologize for them.

Damn, that's an image. Was gonna reply one by one. Anyway, we personally disagree on the religion thing, but I'm pretty sure we're both content with the other not changing their views on that, so I'll leave that alone.

Paedophile - Yup, should be spelt 'ae'. None of this "pedo" bullshit.
Racism - Egalitarianism, yay
Feminism - Egalitarianism, yay
Statutory rape - Someone I (consensually) had sex with was convicted of statutory rape, it's fairly bullshit
Retardation - Ehhh. Mentally handicapped people should be removed from the equation before birth if we can help it.
Hitler - If he was still alive and not in control of a developed nation, I'd love to have a drink with the man. If he was in control, I'd shoot him immediately
