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.

-SoulRiser

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 School Survival! My online alias is Wikwoo, my name is a puzzle. Follow these instructions, take the W and change it to an N, put a d at the very end, capitalize the second W, and separate between k and W. Now you have my real name Biggrin I like to play video games, sing, sit and think deeply about shit while I'm supposed to be doing bs homework, I have a very limited knowledge of coding that I'd like to expand, I like technology and most of my deep thoughts are about new hardware designs and whatnot, ok I've gotten carried away with this now but I'd just like to say hi and I hope I can contribute to this community, as I'd rather be posting here and doing the things I said above than doing anything at school Biggrin

RE: I'm Wikwoo :)

Indeed, welcome.

I am the resident CRPL guru, which means absolutely nothing to most people.

What video games, songs, and deep thoughts are your favorites?

Hello, traveler.

This is an ancient account I have not used in a long time. My views have changed much in the intervening months and years.

Nonetheless, I refuse to clean it up. Pretending that I've held my current views since the beginning of time is what we in the industry call a lie. Asking people to do so contributes to moralistic self-loathing. "See, those people have nothing damning! I do! I'm truly vile!"

Because you can never be a good person with a single blemish on the moral record, I thought that simply entertaining some thoughts made me irredeemable. Though I don't care for his writing style, William Faulkner presents a good counterexample. He went from being a typical Southern racist to supporting the civil rights movement. These days we'd yell at him for that, probably.

People are allowed to change their views.

Nevertheless, this period of my life has informed some of how I am today. In good ways and bad ways. To purge it would be to do a disservice to history. Perhaps it will not make anyone sympathetic, but it may help someone understand.

If, after reading all this, you still decide to use the post above as evidence that I am evil today, ask yourself if you have never disagreed with the moral code you now follow. In all likelihood you did, at some point. If some questions are verboten, and the answer is "how dare you ask that," don't expect your ideological opponents to ever change their minds.

I am also occasionally known as Senor Moneybagz.

Don't get offended by people cussing you out in random threads once you get more acquainted with the site though.

I love all things Nintendo, and I absolutely ADORE Ninja Sex Party and Starbomb. Usually I think about the infinite ways I could become either afloat or actually rich without school, designing hardware, creating businesses around here that everyone wants but nobody knows how to accomplish. I'll save that for another thread though. Usually when I'm doing homework I'll just sit back and be like.. "Why the hell am I doing this? It's so FUCKING USELESS!" And I then I usually proceed to have a big fight with my parents about it that ends up in me doing the homework anyway Huh

I once had some guy called Nick fall in love with me on an MMO as he thought I was a female... Fun times. It ended up a shitstorm though and I was in my trolling years back then, so what I did with the situation is obvious...

You made him send dick pics then posted those to 4chan and reddit? Then when he wanted a pic of you you sent him a bunch of women of varying colors and attractiveness, then when he said he wanted the real you you sent him your dick?
