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.

Yeah, it's good to get your bro off the young earth creationism. One of the things atheists and most Christians can agree is batshit insane.

Update:

Hidden stuff:

Dad has given me permission to set a router whitelist for Eric's laptop. In other words, only allow him to access specific sites as opposed to his current anything-goes lifestyle. When I further researched on the matter and discovered that our router can't whitelist sites, my father said he'd get a server set up before the router.

Brillant! If you don't mind, I'm going to send you off to a suggested whitelist.

If I seem rude to you, please call me on it gently.

And... things are happening.

So let me give you the tl;dr. Eric is mulling over the idea of re-enrolling in public school, in addition to doing Khan Academy and other things in exchange for an incentivized starchart and a pittance of cash. He's also going to be re-entering the Boy Scouts shortly as well. Needless to say, this turn of events has us all quite shocked to say the least. If you have any further questions (besides "what black magic was used to infulence this turn of events into coming to frutition", with which I can only give an honest "I don't know"), please feel free to ask. ^_~
