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.

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.

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.

Use your backup browser.

If that fails, check your firewall.

If that fails, your antivirus.

If that fails, try finding an installer that will work.

If that fails, Google your problem.

If that fails, throw computer out window and smash with sledgehammer.

Roblox? I was unaware that it suddenly became 2005 again.

RE: Installers won't work.

Make sure you have the installer for windows 7 and not some outdated shit :|

Like installers are specific to the operating system.

The window doesn't open, but it does open as a process, and it takes half an hour for the window to open, but the installer never actually moves at all.

Hey, despite the shit community, the overpriced Builder's Club, the ODers, and the fourms, it's a pretty cool site once you find something fun to play. Also, the 2010s can suck a large cock and the 2000s was the best decade ever.

Installers won't work.

2008 was the year Roblox began it's death and decay. I had joined right around the time that the veteran professionals began to retire, and we had a decent mature base slowly get populated by trolling 10 year olds.

Then my Roblox thing stopped working so I didn't really get back to it(though I visit my profile one in a full moon to change my avatar appearance and show off my 2008 superiority! Razz )

RE: Installers won't work.

And that only happens with installers and no other applications? And only certain ones, or are those just all the ones you've tried recently?

What about this one to test? http://the.earth.li/~sgtatham/putty/late...taller.exe
