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.

Dear Fucking GOD WHY

I'm fucking sick of it.
Just sick of it.
Hollywood needs to stop bastardizing cartoon classics into poorly written dime-a-dozen CGI/live action gimmicky slapstick shitpiles.

http://movies.yahoo.com/feature/movie-ta...alent.html

They did the Looney Toons, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Garfield, now the Smurfs and Yogi Bear.

Watch the trailer and you know what kind of movie it's gonna be.

Director: "Ooh, a talking bear! Talking animals are cute and popular, EVERYONE LOVES talking animal movies! Plus, people WANT a modern revamp of Yogi Bear, so let's make the film! We'll make Yogi and Boo Boo CGI so that we don't have to use that crappy outdated animation. Oh, get some comedians to voice him and Boo boo. Get Justin Timberlake - appeal to the young female crowd! Oh, add some slapstick, uh, let's see, let's make the real life actors act as if a talking bear was totally normal, Jellystone is a perfectly orthodox name for a National Park, and the cartoony aspects of the story are everyday to them. Okay, more slapstick, let's make the deputy ranger look like a retard, some family friendly toilet humor, a stupid romance subplot with the ranger and Anna Faris, and presto! People will flock to this shit with their three year old like flies to poop!"

Dear God, it's annoying as hell, insulting to the intelligence of the audience with the idiotic writing and feels like they're pissing on the nostalgia of a time when children's televisions wasn't CRAP.
There's a reason these projects are ANIMATED, why the Smurfs wasn't originally a live action show, why Yogi Bear wasn't a guy in a bear suit in the 70s.
BECAUSE THE SHOWS WOULD'VE MADE NO SENSE AND WOULD HAVE BEEN CRAP.

Carla Franklin may be a whore. She may be a wonderful, kind, moral woman. Seeing as I don't know her personally, I cannot know for sure. However, I find her actions (suing Google, requesting the personal info of her critics, getting angry over random internet idiocy that she should ignore and be bigger than, trying to get this site in trouble because of a few users' commentary on the situation, etc.) pretty ridiculous and unwarranted. If she didn't want people to to be talking about/judging her, well 1. that's impossible, she's a human, and 2. she shouldn't have been a model or agreed to be on film. AND 3. she DEFINITELY shouldn't have sued Google and made all this fuss over a few random idiots whom she probably won't ever know expressing their opinion. Mmkay? MMKAY.

Yes, they are making a Fairy Odd parents movie with real actors that takes place when Timmy is approx 23 years old or something.

What is wrong with the premise of this movie?

Because the show wasn't supposed to be live action or they would've made it so.
Drake Bell is an okay actor, I actually like him but why did they make Timmy a young adult when the character is a child? Jason Alexander as Cosmo? WHY??? They won't even get the real voice actors to do the voices?
The CGI is probably gonna look freaky or retarded. "Our mix of live-action and special effects animation will make them look 'hyper-real'" THEY AREN'T SUPPOSED TO LOOK HYPER REAL, THEYRE CARTOONS.
I'd rather they even do it with real cartoons/live action like Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Even though it would still suck T.T

Re: Dear Fucking GOD WHY

Who Framed Roger Rabbit was a beastly movie. And oh god, this isn't REALLY happening, is it?

Re: Dear Fucking GOD WHY

To be honest, I don't see how a new movie can "ruin" an old one. A movie is a movie, it has its own separate rating.

If you hate it so much, don't see it. Let it flop in the box office.
