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.

ITT: Runescape

I got on RS today to check out RS3.

Holy shit was my reaction. I first played RS 15 years ago, but I don't care for the nostalgia of the game back then. All the new shit/changes are nice.

I'm not a fan of RS3. Evolution of Combat and Jagex's attempts to grab money with their spinning wheels and specialty stores...it wasn't like this in RS2. They can suck the big one for all I care.

Still, I love the fantasy world they created, and spent so much time playing back when it was RS2. (It's the only thing that got me through middle school.) If I were any good at modding Skyrim, I would single-handedly recreate a worldspace for RuneScape's Gielinor so that I could see what it looks like in a more convincing 3D!

I've never played RS. Which is better to start: Old-School or RS3?

For anyone who remembers me going on an archive binge: Thank you all. I know I ended it being a drama queen, I don't really agree with the ideology anymore, and I'm really not the same person I was (I went through a neopagan phase!) but still this site was the first online community I was in. I graduated from school and turned 18. Time flies. KFC Nyan Cat, June 20, 2019.

Old-School

Then again I've only played the one before they removed the wilderness or whatever the hell you call it. Then I stopped after they made changes to trade(requiring both parties to be within a certain value margin, making expensive gifts impossible)

I started playing just after that happened, and about a year before they made you log in using your e-mail rather than your username.

The fanbase was pissed at the lack of PvP and free trade, so they started a referendum to bring it back. They succeeded, but a year after that was when EoC came out and ruined the game again.

I once tried to gift someone such a thing...

The game didn't let me.

RE: runescape

I used to play that gane a LOT, started in 2006 i think.. quit shortly after they removed free trade and PVP, came back shortly after they brought both back but never really got into it.. last i remember logging on was like 9-10 months ago.. i walked around swearing at everyone and demanding that they take my stuff, gave away all my monies and items.
