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.

-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. 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.

Despite our tumaltuous history, this is pretty much the closest thing to a fallback DnE has because we were being really lazy and never really implemented a fallback IRC or plan or anything. There's a few mutual members of both sites still, though, so I feel like it's at least somewhat appropriate that this be located here, at least for the time being huehueheu. W/e. The host server crashed and we don't really know what's going on over there. Basically, the server won't even start lol. We are waiting on the host to respond to our queries. We are also working on getting either a new host or at the very least moving the IRC server to one of our other servers temporarily. (Like mine mayb.)


So yeah, be patient we'll be back in the next day or so I think. It's already been down for like 1 1/2 days. I have backups that are like 4 days old so meh, not too bad I guess. As far as we know it wasn't the feds so that's good I guess llolo.

Plus anyone who thought of coming here to see what happened to DnE, plus anyone who just decides "I wonder what's going on over at /ss/ today"...


The point isn't to let you guys know or get help from you or something, it was to try to get the information that DnE was down, and we were working on it, out to DnE members. This was the only fallback location I could think of which people can easily remember / members come check from time to time. I don't think it's really that big of an imposition olo. I've always used /ss/ for this on all of the other sites /ss/ members have used that I worked with.

But not really, I'm around from time to time on here if I have time and the conversation appeals.

Also there was an Openssl exploit so https was down (and consequently the site) for a little bit while it was patched for security. 10/10

Possibly Soul if we take into consideration the age differences and the low average life span of South Africans

though does it apply to white people? Confused

Course maybe a meteor may smash into your home while you're sleeping Desu. Then when they come to investigate the damage, they find said meteor cracked open with a little baby wrapped up in some alien fabric. Unfortunately for you, Superman was not a very good meteor pilot...

Or I could just wait for Desu to act up and...well, you know. Not the most preferential solution, but at least it would mean he'd finally be free from us.

Welp. Looks like our cheap hosting days are over, moving to better host soon, old host completely died. I think we had better uptime hosting on home-network lol. Professionals suck. Anyway, we'll be back up pretty soon one way or another.

Irc is still up and everything. Also all static content.
