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 ^_^

Or yourselves, if you, like I, have multiple, yet distinct, psyches of the mind, and possibly soul.

Check out the commas, they're delicious, because I'm using them a lot, obviously to mess with people.

Welcome to SS!

I'm a junior as well in high school, my second-to-last year before I'm released. I'm glad that you've discovered this site! Always nice to get another anti-schooler here!

Welcome. Do you like anime or video games? If so which ones?

Hello ^_^

Hey, although you won't see me posting a lot, as I usually lurk, and due to the fact that I only speak unless I feel like it is needed, interesting, or when asked to. Unless it's a Forum game. Anyway welcome to the forums!

Pretty Much my only signature...I'm mainly a lurker....you can find me on the IRC (or on DnE and their IRC).

I am an exclusively Nintendo gamer. I don't watch as much anime as I'd like, but I have seen K-ON.

That's good to know, even if I don't agree with you. Welcome to the forums anyways. You'd probably know me, (or will soon know me, now that my life has cleared up), as the SS resident MAME fanatic.

RE: Hello ^_^

Nintendo 64 FTW.

I still have mine w/3 controllers and it still somewhat works.

Hello ^_^

Is it weird that I've had a Gameboy Color (with the original pokemon games), Gameboy advanced, All DS systems excluding the DSi line, and the 3ds XL, All three Play Stations, a Nintendo 64, and an Xbox,Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) and I'm only 14?

Although I love the Nintendo 64(until my mom sold it -_-), I had fond memories with that thing.

Hello ^_^

I got a GameBoy Advance SP in 2002. It still works perfectly, aside from the screen cover sorta being melted on - doesn't affect gameplay, though.

I play it at school. Currently trying to beat Super Mario World as Luigi this time.

Hello ^_^

Even though I was born in 1997 I grew up playing a lot of SNES. Too bad I don't have it anymore, nor my N64. I do have a DS though.
