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.

RE: Need ways to make some money!

Why not try a blog and maybe try to cash in on something that would attract viewers? Doesnt have to be 100% original as long as it has a sufficient degree of your own creative twist?

Otherwise i dun know...

Need ways to make some money!

Mind sharing your channel? What kind of videos do you make?

You may be able to build up your subscribers and make money there.

Beyond that, what are your interests? What might you like doing?

And, what kind of income are you thinking of, and how much time do you have available to spend?

Need ways to make some money!

How'd you get that many subscribers?

Making money from a website is a slow process of gradually growing & figuring out what works... so make sure you pick a topic you'll want to stick with for a long time... or a broad enough site that you can change topics somewhat.

Fiverr.com is a way to make some money online quicker. I've hired a few people there to do things for me, but haven't tried it the other way around. Some people apparently do quite well there... not really sure how though.

Need ways to make some money!

Tutor online
http://www.beeymo.com

Don't bother with the surveys. They are a complete waste of time. Tutoring, on the other hand, actually helped me earn enough money to pay for bills and school fees. Anyone who is good in a subject or is a native speaker of any language, should try online tutoring. Anyone can use it to teach and the sessions are performed online. Check it out cuz it's really one of the only ways that helped me.

There's also:
- http://lp.fiverr.com/
- https://www.elance.com
- https://www.peopleperhour.com
- https://www.upwork.com

Hope it helps. Smile

RE: Need ways to make some money!

Robbing a bank is worst advice. Its one of rhe places expecting to get robbed...hence you will probably get caught unless your some high tech genius with a crew. Even then odds are extremely low.
