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.

Nation Proposal

While this will not be official until the next League of Nations meeting, I propose a new nation.

Nation Of Skyvana
1. Leader - None, direct democracy (I am ambassador)
2. Flag - Sky blue with a white hammer and sickle in the top left corner
3. Residents - (fake #) 200,000
4. Government system - Direct democracy
5. Economic system - Anarcho-communism (you must however, work to receive benefits, supplies, etc)
6. National anthem - The Internationale
7. Location - Planet of Alpha Centauri

Neato. As soon as I can get the ball rolling again, and fill you in on the plot, we can get you in.

First of all, how many islands do you want? (Maximum is three, but that's pushing it.) And would you prefer north or northeast?

Two islands would be fine.

Your nation will be where Revivistan was.

Give me time to incorporate you into the game. Or start the next act of the game, for that matter.

You should make a nation for supernatural creatures. It would be separate from the others(only way to explain why it's never been discovered)

It would still be in medeval times to make it more mystical.

It would be ruled by one emperor.

It should have humans living their too in peace with the paranormal.

the flag could be a full moon.

Note: Not where the demons who tried to take over the world are from.

The currency would be coins.

RE: Nation Proposal

As I've said, this nation will be where Revivistan used to be, so we won't have to make up any new landmasses just for one player.

Definitely possible, though unlikely. The area was hit by a demonic invasion dispelled by divine magic, and humans don't have to be the only things coming out of the wreckage.

This conflicts with the lore already established.

Who's making the nation, this person or you?

Again, could work.

You have good ideas. Why not make a nation like this for yourself? Where Orkania used to be, for instance?

hm.... I have an idea to justify it's oldness, is that during the invasion and resealing, it caused a bit of a 'rupture' in time causing things to go back to older times.

Pretty Much my only signature...I'm mainly a lurker....you can find me on the IRC (or on DnE and their IRC).

I'll admit, weirder things have happened. I think, however, the direction of the nation is up to TheLiberal to decide.

I'm planning on starting the next arc soon, but I'd like to finish parts of my index first (so newbs can get caught up) and figure out who intends to play Act II of the game.

I wasn't aware you were still active. The question is, what will rise in Orkania's place? I'm assuming all or most of the Orks died in the demonic invasion, and then the entire north would have to be resettled.

Humans mostly(the slaves...or now ex-slaves) The Orks have "vanished" and become a bit less than real since most evidence of their existence was destroyed with the whole demonic summoning and rituals and destruction.
