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: This kid is really rude towards me.

I'm starting to get a trolling vibe from you.

If you want to be a different fish, you've got to jump out of the school.

I'm sorry, I really am. I know I posted about this before, and I guess that's why you probably think I'm trolling. No I'm honestly not, I'm really sorry. I feel so bad. I don't know why I reposted this, if you know what I mean. I mean I know I made a post about this before, but I mean the same thing happened again and that's the only reason why I'm posting about it again. I'm sorry.

Nah, I don't think he's a troll. There's nothing wrong with asking a lot of questions and accidentally asking the same one twice. As long as you're genuinely trying to learn from people's responses, it's all good.

No no please, you're okay. I'm sorry it was my fault. Please understand I mean I don't really no where to go for help really, and I don't really trust anyone in real life or no one anyone who I can really talk too in real life. And you guys have helped me so far the most. And I guess as I'm posting more, I'm discovering more about how I feel this way, or why I might be feeling this way and sometimes as I post more and get more input from you guys I'm slowly starting to build up how I feel and I can understand more about why I feel this way, and that's the only reason why I reposted this. I know I made a post about this before, but like I said the kid was being rude towards me again and that's the only reason why I made this post again. I feel bad that you thought I was trolling. I mean I can see how you could see, that but please forgive me. I want you guys to trust me because I trust you guys. I guess this sounds too good to be true, but I really feel bad.

You're good. I'm sorry I mentioned it. The forums are for you. I'm just like a weird house guest who hangs around too much.

No. They put teachers in jail for that in America.

Thank you for understanding it, and no that's okay I can really see how you would've thought that. Don't worry, I do stupid things and weird things too. But you're still one of the many people I like on this forums since you're a teacher, and teachers are the coolest people Razz
