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.

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. Send me a message if you'd like to keep in touch with me & Steve.

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 Capitalistian

Hello, I am Johnathan Jim, the president of the Control Party, one of the leaders of Capitalistian. I'll take a few moments out of my busy schedule to inform you of our great country.

Our flag is half black, half white, to represent the idea out country is based on. Dualism. Our country must be balanced with two sides. Without each side, our nation will go off and become too radical and out of the bounds of sanity. Thus, we have two slightly radical and slightly less than same parties. Our residents are called Capitalans.

We have two parties, as mentioned before. The Freedom Party and the Control party. Their names are self explanatory. No one shows allegiance to just one party. Rather, they vote for which party should have control over each department. Elections occur every week. Our nation's laws are always in flux due to this. The economic system is decided by which party is control at the time.

Our anthem is also decided by which party is in control.

-Hi, I'm George John McCartney, president of the Freedom Party. Just introducing myself, and mentioning that there in no contempt or tension between the two parties. Mr. Jim did a great job in describing our system, and I thank him for that.

CURRENT STANDINGS:
Department of Military: FREEDOM
Department of Religion: FREEDOM
Department of Education: CONTROL
Department of Health and Safety: CONTROL
Department of Industry: FREEDOM
Department of Agriculture: FREEDOM
Department of Law Enforcement: CONTROL
Department of Finances: CONTROL
Department of Social Issues: CONTROL
Department of Security: FREEDOM
Department of Foreign Relations: CONTROL
Anthem: FREEDOM "Sandman", by Beatallica.

Capitalistian

In the spirit of friendship I have a delivery of artistically placed severed heads of Sea Land's enemies for Mr. Jim's art foyer, along with a generous monetary donation for political purposes.

However, seeing as this nation has a threateningly strong military, in the interest of preserving peace (AND duality), I endorse Mr. McCartney's leadership of the military division and have a number of decorative (and outdated) armaments available to this nation for low prices.

Did I mention that my generous monetary donation to the Control Party was worth the equivalent of $6000?

(Note that I have exploited a financial loophole that permits me to fund the Freedom Party's control of the Department of Military.)

That donation was merely a thank-you to the Control Party for extending the olive branch of peace my way. I will continue funding them in smaller amounts if I so choose, if only to preserve duality.

Do not mistake my complacency for acceptance of your threat; you do not want to make an enemy of me, especially considering you are the Sea Lands' ally right now.

RE: Capitalistian

BREAKING NEWS: George John McCartney has been assasinated in the League of Nations! We do not know who did it. We do know that our hero, Jonathan Jim, did his best to stave off the attacker. But it wasn't enough.

Until further notice, Mr. Jim will be in control of all Departments.

RE: Capitalistian

THIS JUST IN:
After a whistleblower leaked a conversation between the two leaders, It's clear that Mr. Jim has murdered his Co-Leader!! Members of the Freedom Party are rioting in the streets!
.......
The rioters got into the foyer of Mr. Jim, and told him to leave. He refused, pointing a gun. After a few shots, one vigilante shot and killed him. This is a sad day.

We will not press charges on anyone involved. This is the first time in Capitalistian history where both Party leaders died on the same day. We've also determined that Mr. Jim had several mental illnesses, and that we shouldn't have even let him go into politics.

Replacements will be chosen before the next League meeting. The anthem will stay the same from now on as an memorial to the first Co-Leader killed by the other.

(OOC: I really didn't expect it to turn out like this. I thought I could've just sticked with Jim and McCartney for the whole thing. I'm going to miss playing them.)

RE: Capitalistian

He planned to abolish the Freedom Party and declace war on Fantasia and the Isle of Three. But he also planned on releasing a virus. He snuck the vaccination of it with different vaccinations, so our people are immune.

It's just like the flu, but it rewrites the genetic code to make the immune system attack the brain, causing dementia and insanity. The worst part is that it isn't curable, and it isn't lethal

He wanted to watch the world go into chaos and die at each other's hands, so that he could rule it himself.

We thank you. You saved the very faberic of society. -Congress

RE: Capitalistian

Treaty accepted!

We have two announcements. First, the two parties have changed their platforms dramatically. For example, the Control Party now supports free will and privacy, and the Freedom Party now supports law and punishment for crime.

Second, we have new Co-Leaders! We are pleased to announce Mr. Tim Lennon, and Mr. Paul Adams!

Pleas' ta meechya, mate! Hoo' ya doin'? -Mr. Lennon

Hello. I worked alongside Mr. Jim, and helped him win. I now denounce him. Please don't kill me. Also, we have no intention of attacking the Isle of Three. -Mr. Adams

Alright, we welcome both people with open arms, We wish to note that our previous donation is now doubled and is for the Control Party. Also we have no intention of attacking or harming any of your, so you do not need to worry about me killing you, Mr. Adams.

I also wish to propose an Extradition Policy which would require us to deport anyone whom is to face crime if suggested, and will not get the death sentence.
