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.

Why I hate "The secret of Platform 13"

stereo types
Raymond is your "typical" rich kid: fat, snobby, nasty, and spoiled

Ben is your average prince: "handsome, "intelligent", and "nice" Sarcasticclap

When Gurkintrude is disgusted by Raymond fishing through his soup it is okay but when Raymond is disgusted by a giant monster with it's upper organs showing he is being rude...really?

When the nurses torture themselves in the cave no one gives a shit but when Odge does it for less than a dayit is so tragic and sad...why? because of Not-being-the-main-character-jutsu naruto


Gurkintrude had trouble approaching Raymond because he is fat
"Feys are used to kissing children and being a godmother to almost everyone, but Raymond, bulging out of his yellow silk pajamas, looked so uninviting that she had to pretend he was a vegetable marrow before she could settle down beside him on the bed."

Ben automatically assumes Doreen is trying to harm his pet mistmaker because she is old and mean-looking and beats her up with
his "inhumane strength"

how it represents us
"Raymond's school was the most expensive in London; the uniform alone cost hundreds of pounds, but he hated it."
What a shocker in the locker Raymond the "bad guy" hates school. Rolleyes

It does sound like shit.

For anyone who remembers me going on an archive binge: Thank you all. I know I ended it being a drama queen, I don't really agree with the ideology anymore, and I'm really not the same person I was (I went through a neopagan phase!) but still this site was the first online community I was in. I graduated from school and turned 18. Time flies. KFC Nyan Cat, June 20, 2019.

Is this supposed to be a teen novel?

I think I remember we were discussing another novel on here called The Water Wars by Cameron Stracher. I'll go fetch the thread if anyone's interested.

EDIT: Here we go.
