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.

my school is about to shut down school survival

My school found out about School Survival, and about 1/10th of everyone in the school uses it / has a account. So- they have blocked school survival on their wifi, and are now sending emails to parents to block it from theirs also. Any ideas how to stop the link to mine?

They're convincing parents to blocking their wifi to School Survival.

Wow. Thats a lot of people using this site. Your school's mainstream population must be mostly anti-school.

And why in particular do they want even the PARENTS to block it? Must be pretty desperate to maintain their dogma!

school is about as fruitful as a dead apple tree.

i'm pretty sure schools have the right to block whatever they find 'distracting' to education.
stories like this always weird me out 'cause my school has pretty much nothing blocked.
find a good proxy or use your phone as a wifi hotspot, i guess.
or just don't browse ss at school. you won't miss much.

I suppose I'm kind of flattered that the school is going to actually email ALL the parents about this site. Maybe some of them will even like it.

Wow that is quite terrible...Hopefully no one will get into too much trouble with their parents about it.
And like Soulriser said, maybe some good will come out of this. Hopefully :/
