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 EPIC ROUTER WAR OF '10

Before we begin quick setup of the intarnets in my house: Broadband cable goes into router which goes into parents pc via cable and wirelessly to a usb adapter in my pc and integrated one in my brothers laptop.

So I'm trying to play Moonbase Alpha with friends and my ping frequently soars into the thousands on a regular basis, and even at the best of times it's around 500. This is because my brother is watching MOTHERUFUCKING FRED AT 1080 MOTHERFUCKING p and this annoys the fuck out of me because gliding across the surface of the moon and having chat messages take up to a minute to arrive onscreen. I've tried reasoning with him, which doesn't work. I've tried yelling at him, which also doesn't work. I've tried blocking him from watching YT and that doesn't work either because he went and whined to mum about how i hacked his computer and made his computer the main computer and subverted some shit or other and i then had to explain to my very angry mum about the basics of routers. And afterwords she had a rant at me about how I'm on my PC all the time and I need to be a perfect little faggot and revise and study all the fucking time so SS how does i get less ping on mah video gamez?

1. Password your computer
2. Delete all browsers and torrent clients from his computer
3. Put a pussy little virus on there and blame it on that.

Re: THE EPIC ROUTER WAR OF '10

HOG TEH NETS so he can't download high quality videos. That will force him to download lower quality videos. After a while, he will stop trying to use the HQ feature. When that happens, stop HOGGING TEH INTERNETS and start enjoying your games.

This idea is pretty dumb and probably won't work, not to mention it will probably take a long time, and you'd have to DDoS his PC to slow it down. Or torrent constantly.

Meh, disregard this, I do not suck cocks.

He'd suspect. Everytime his net dies for even a second he accuses me of making his computer the main computer and subverting the broadbandwidth or whatever illiterate shit both him and mum use. Mum actually had a go at me for yelling at him about it. FUCK YOU FRED WATCHER

Re: THE EPIC ROUTER WAR OF '10

Why don't you have his computer unfortunately "break" That is unless then he would have to use yours, that would suck even more.

Or, If you can use your computer secretly jack an ethernet cable directly into your router or modem and run it to your computer, And just be like "Oh, I know the internets down for me to it sucks for all of us huh? *trollface*" then again this could cause investigation to the router, discovering your secret internets cord.

Probley the best way, Is making a wifi booster that fits onto a cheap wifi adapter for your laptop, And steal someone elses wifi that doesn't have some fag who likes fred in the household.

Had to move on. Account is dead.

OK, I've finally had enough of that motherfucker and his fucking fred watching ways. I think I will virus up his computer, that way not only can he not watch fred but also no one will suspect me. Now, how does I virus things up without him guessing it was me?

He broke his PC from sheer overuse LOL (well, the geek squad said it was a hard drive issue which makes me think that the poor thing could no longer contain all the fail he was making) but now he has to use my laptop and if he holds it on its side blocking the ventilation ports ONE MORE GODDAMN TIME

Re: THE EPIC ROUTER WAR OF '10

I would if I could, but my parents are cheap-ass fucks and say "OMG WE ALREADY HAVE A ROUTER WHY DO YOU NEED ANOTHER ONE" and if I explain the whole slow as fuck internet they'll just say "WELL YOU SHOULD BE REVISING AND TAKING NOTES ALL DAY ERRY DAY AND NOT PLAYING STUPID LITTLE COMPUTER GAMES"

At the end of the day, all that matters to them is that I am taking GCSE's and he isn't, so they let him get away with doing whatever he wants and I get my ass grinded. Noo
