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.

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.

Hello everyone. So as many of you know, I have been posting on this forum. We'll let me tell you why. For school, I am doing a project. I have to choose a class from the social latter and research them. (Examples-Jocks,Nerds etc). So I decided to research you guys, the loners/weirdos. (I suppose you would call yourself's that). So I'm just about done, however, I need you guys to post here saying that it's ok to use your posts in my power point. I just need a few of you. Your usernames may or may not be shown, depending on the picture. Thanks! And please hurry, this is due friday!

RE: Click this!

Look. I have a few good friends. I just don't see the point in talking loads unnecessarily. I'm quiet, but I'm an introvert. To be completely honest, I'd rather come on here or read a good book than talk to a bunch of idiots. That doesn't make me a loner. I think i speak for quite a lot of people here in some way.

Meh, you can use any of my posts, as long as the entire statement in the post is shown.
I don't think you will use my posts, but might as well

RE: Click this!

This is not helping your reputation, especially if you are telling the truth.

You mean to say that you have been assigned a project in which you must pick a group from an arbitrary, popularity-based, and possibly nonexistent social ladder? And one of those groups are called "loners" and nicknamed "weirdos", and that's the one you chose? And you came here, of all places, to research said "weirdos", insult us in the process, and continue to do so the more you know about us? AND NOW you ask us to help you complete this assignment despite having made us angry, completely forgetting that we would be not only opposed to the assignment itself but also to the school that came up with it (AND TO YOU)?

Here is my response. I hope it will clear up my thoughts on this matter:

GET. THE. HELL. OUT!

You're not getting anyone's permission, so you can take your disclaimers or consent forms or whatever and shove them up your ass! We are not test subjects, nor members of some social hierarchy, nor objects for your amusement!

(It is not often I say this, but I recommend Soul ban this user immediately.)

It's on a power point but I suppose I could translate the slides? Idk I'll find a way later. Let's get those posts saying I'm allowed going though!

Can't this be done by putting the file in a zip file and uploading it publicly?

What DoA said.

We aren't fucking test subjects. So no, you don't have my permission. Although that probably won't stop you anyway.
