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.

Hey!

Hey guys! I'm SchoolRebel,
I just want to say how cool this site is. I'm in 11th grade and it's a real pain in the fuckin ass! I've been having trouble with school for a long time so I finally thought to see if other people thought the same. Thank fuck for this website! finally I can talk to people who have the same problems and feelings about school that I do. I'm good at most kinds of school work and shit like that so if you got a question about homework or you just want to vent about some dumbass teachers I am all ears. Hope to see you guys around the forums!

Pffft, still befriending mortals. I'll not ask you to return to our side, but I demand you cease your attack.

And on another note, welcome SchoolRebel! Hope to see you around. (Tip: I'm usually on these forums 24/7, so if you want something to be quickly replied to, notify me first.)

Strange.

Sorry if we're replying awkwardly, and if you're a fellow school hater but from Pakistan you're more than welcome to join. Recently though we've had massive and large spambot attacks from India which were trying to sell us black magic with tons of threads being created every 10 seconds or so until SoulRiser (the admin around here) killed them off for good.

Hey!

I hope you're sentient.

Hi Safa. You're welcome to make your own introduction thread so that we can properly probe you without feeling... irked. In fact we'd prefer it that way.
