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.

Music Greetings!

Hi everyone my name is Levi and I go by the online name Yalanci. I'd prefer if you address me by my real name if you'd kindly, but it's definitely okay if you don't. I'm from a homosexual from Canada and I someday hope to be free of the burden of constantly being bullied at school. I believe in equality and freedom for all regardless of race, religion or gender. Growing up in a religious family hasn't been easy.

Um thank you very much for your kindness. I like your signature it's very inspirational and a nice poem. It really contrasts to Gwedin's signature.

Ah, DoA I've heard snippets here and there nice to finally meet you. A wannabe psychologist meaning you are going to school to become one or just as a hobby?

A bit of both, I guess; for me, psychology already is a hobby, but I want to get a college degree so it can become my profession.

Howdy Levi. Growing up with a religious family is indeed a pain in the ass. What do you affiliate yourself as? I'm getting agnostic / atheist vibes from you.

I suppose overtime I've slowly turned into an atheist. No God would let the world become what it is today.

I support how God let this world turn out.

It helped me learn how pathetic the human race is, and thus fueled my ambition for global conquest and universal subjugation under one single leadership.

Hey Levi! I never got to say hi. Also, I've seen some of your threads and I wish you luck through your situation.

Is your profile pic Palutuna from Kid Icarus?

Do you like playing video games or watching anime?
