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.

I'm pretty sure Sharpie is just a highly advanced bot designed to be completely stupid but still pass as a real person.

You don't honestly believe in that "exclusive" crap do you? There *are* no "exclusives." All games are eventually at one point or another emulated, ported to the PC, and networked for online play.

Sorry pal, but I'm gunna have to back the PC Master Race SIEG HEIL in all this. Besides, there's absolutely nothing a console can do that a PC can't. All the things a console can do, a PC can; all the things a PC can do, a console can't. AND computers aren't just for games, when you're done playing you can use them for doing other things as well.

Alienware is shit btw.

TRIGGER WARNING: THIS TRIGGER WARNING CONTAINS TRIGGER WARNINGS!

Dear Tumblrites: Despite your wrongly self-diagnosed PTSD, no line of scientific evidence suggests people can be triggered over the internet. Triggering works through the senses (i.e. smell, taste, touch, vision, hearing.) but it goes through real time; if you're not experiencing it in real life as it's ACTUALLY HAPPENING in your ACTUAL life, you CANNOT be triggered. The only exception to this is if you have a seizure, but then again, that's triggered by epilepsy (i.e. rapidly-changing flashing lights) NOT PTSD. Remembering a bad incident is NOT the same thing as having a flashback. When you remember, you think; when you flashback, you feel.

Find me a PC port of Halo 3 or Gears of War 3 that does not suck.
The PC version of Halo 2 sucked

Like I said, one point or another. Just because there isn't one now doesn't mean there won't be later. Up until now they've been spoonfeeding us that "IF U DONT BUY OUR CONSULS YUR MISSIN OUT HURR DURR" crap. They've been proven wrong with ports by dedicated fans before, and I've no reason to think they'll change now.

If your Halo 2 really sucked maybe you should look into fan patches to fix things, but that depends on what the problem is.

Your being annoying skills seem a bit low. Do you need a firmware update?
