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.

The Community on a server

Alright so I'm playing on the Wintreath Minecraft server(wintreath is a NationStates Region), and I formed the first player community in server. I'll put a rough little history thing and update this daily. This is focusing on the community that I formed(semi-intentionally), on the server.

History
Hidden stuff:

I spawned, found a nice little vally and built a hidey-hole, where I spent the first couple days. I finished my house and built a farm. I found a vilage and I had taken the crops from there. Then a new user joins and we meet up, I show him around and then he goes on his way, an IRL day later, and I find his house, which isn't too far from mine, we share some resources and eventually decide to build a pathway between our houses, I choose the path, he uses his cobble(of which he has a lot of) to build it. We build a rough pathway, and he gives me some extra cobble to finish the job. Later I decide to re-make a part of the pathway, into a bridge, which I finished today. I also decide to put wood ontop of the pathway(with cobble underneath it and acting as guard rails of sorts) to work better with the bridge, afterwards I begin to add guard 'rails' to the bridge. I run out of cobble and I trade with another player for some more cobble(15 stacks of it). I finish the bridge. I used up a good amount of wood in it(having 2+ stacks and ending up with a stack in a half of wood(all of this is oak)). Then the server owner logs on, and builds his house close to ours

Anywho the Community itself is An-Cap/An-Comm in a sense. We don't really trade if a user needs something they can ask and if the other person has it, and isn't using it, then usually they get it without having to trade(although sometimes trades do occur). The other guy is the miner, and I farm. Dunno what the owner will do....

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

Neat. If I had the money, I'd start a dedicated School Survival Minecraft server with all the essential plugins (and no mods necessary).

Meh I'd have mods, because mods allow for advances beyond typical things, it allows for power, nuclear things, and war! However generally it doesn't take too much money IIRC, and you can host one from your own computer. If I could get the money I'd build my own server and host an SS one there.

The cost isn't what's stopping me, but the fact that it costs anything! I don't have a credit card nor a PayPal, and only have Minecraft because they sell the digital code for the game at GameStop.

I can set it up, although I am going to need a bit of money to build a good server though.

I basically copied the Tenth Doctor skin, changed the hair to blonde, and changed the interior suit color from blue to green. Razz

Nah, the discussion here is rather standalone. (It could benefit from a different title, though, like "General Minecraft Discussion")

Actually it wasn't meant to be a minecraft discussion, it was meant to log the evolution of a minecraft community in server, which is where I placed it, nothing note-worthy has generally happened, which is why I placed it where I did.

Why not split it? This way the original thread stays where it needs to be and the general discussion is elsewhere.
