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.

I love you... i love you all!

Have you ever encountered a website and fistpumped right to the air?
How often?

Well, i did. After just a sentence of what seemed to be the selling point of this website. An article citing 14 reasons why school sucks. I was sold and the forum is active and nice. You all seem to agree...

These kind of sites seem to hit a notch in my heart that locks me in with love. Makes me realize i am not alone in the world just when i was buying the "you are crazy" statements toward me.

I like these "retro-web" sites. It's a term i use for vintage looking sites with authentic content... by authentic content i mean , it doesn't comprise of some goof writing or copy pasting because he wants ad-clicks on his redundant blog. Instead, writing that comes from the heart.

You guys should really check out prettyfedup.com

The website is old and dead but there's some classic, A-Grade shit on there. It might definetly go down soon so I mirrored the whole thing Razz

Anyway, i've bookmarked this website. I feel i will like my stay here. I don't have a good history with forums because generally people take me for a "retared troll" because of how logical and fun i am.

Well, i have alot of stories to tell and i'm looking forward to along stay here.

Oh, and uh...

SCHOOL SUCKS, I'M NOT "CRAZY" DAMMIT!

Hi there Smile

Vintage-looking? Laugh
Probably because I don't know that much about Javascript and CSS 'cause I learned how to interweb when I was 15 and didn't feel like changing everything with all the Web 2.0 nonsense. Giggle
I like tables.

Anyhoo, what do you do for fun?

"I've been making a list of the things they don't teach you at school. They don't teach you how to love somebody. They don't teach you how to be famous. They don't teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don't teach you how to walk away from someone you don't love any longer. They don't teach you how to know what's going on in someone else's mind. They don't teach you what to say to someone who's dying. They don't teach you anything worth knowing."-Neil Gaimen

Good question. It is of course every human's inner desire to take over the world...

Dead Space and Payday:The Heist aren't sims or dress up games o_0

The former is a "Shit-bricks-down-your-pants horror sci-fi" and the latter is "Its-called-a-game-but-we're-really-teaching-you-how-to-commit-armed-robbery first-person shooter/action game"
