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.

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.

Two Factor/Two Step Authenitcation

Would you use Two-Factor/Two-Step Authentication if we were to allow Two-factor/Two-Step authentication to be used?

Two Factor/Two Step Authenitcation

Essentially a user can enable the Authentication and have it require both your password and you verifying something(usually in a Text, App, e-mail), to log in (Two-Factor and Two-Step). Although we could also allow Swekey which adds another layer of protection(using Two-Factor Authentication).

Both of these would be able to be enabled by the user if they wish, and allows users to secure their account even better. This would be ideal, especially if using the account in public places(plus when Mixed with Swekey, it would make it hard as fuck to get into your account since you would need: Your Password, your e-mail(or whatever way you choose to help authenticate) and your Swekey.)

This would mainly help secure your account and add extra options.

Ah. I suppose it would be nice to have the option, but to be honest, I wouldn't even consider using it.

I've always hated those things and would never use it if I have a choice in the matter.

Two Factor/Two Step Authenitcation

I'd probably use this. A few minutes ago my sister got on my laptop after a fight we had and I went AFK. She went into some section of SS, the IRC I believe, and a couple of other forums I frequent, and thankfully I don't see any damage.

Can't believe I have to utilize this now but I'm going to put a pass on my laptop so when I go AFK, I'll just logout and one will need to know the password to be able to re-login.

Seven crappy hours of our lives.
