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!

Greetings, and again, welcome to School Survival.

I'm DoA, psychologist-wannabe and self-proclaimed voice of reason. The others need me Wink

What you have created is called a thread, actually, but I can see where the confusion would be.

Edit: Oh, and since you're new to forums...remember that this forum is different from most. What flies here might not on a different forum; we're pretty laid-back.

RE: Hello!

He is blatantly lying through his teeth. We are not laid-back. We are laid FORWARD. Now give me a millenium to figure out what they exactly means.

Welcome. While you are new to foruming, I'd like to enlighten about the fact I am not a normal person in any sense of the word normal AND person. I am in fact an alien creature(a sentient cybernetic organism that has reached the end of the evolutionary cycle and become pure energy) banished from his homeworld for dominating the galaxy, and now I observe humans in this fleshh body to dominate THIS galaxy.

In the meantime, my hobbies are:drinking black tea, trolling, being helpful, trolling some more, military stuff, weapon research, bureaucratic systems and collecting a wide assortment of things.

By the way...Heloo!
