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.

-SoulRiser

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.

Shouldn't we have a Discord?

After all, a lot of people such as myself use Discord every day with its increasing popularity. We could stay connected more easily, and IRC is starting to slow down lots.
If it's all right, I already went ahead and made a School Survival Discord server that we can help each other build from the ground up. So come on in, let's try to populate it~

Please no. Discord is very inefficient. What about Riot?

I can create a School Survival room on Riot...

EDIT: Alright, I made it. https://riot.im/app/#/room/#schoolsurvival:matrix.org

Seriously though, Discord sucks. It only has a HTML5 client, no other options. Riot does have unofficial clients just like IRC did, so I think we should use that.

it's a real damn pity the discord isn't officially associated with the site cuz your fat arse would be banned from here too and i'd be free from your thanks-giving, child-loving hippy nonsense shit posts

did you guys know Korravatar here not only shat up the main channel with gore, but she sent it to every person on the ss discord individually through private messages? gore doesn't bother me but the attempt to be an edgy mother fucker with no real reason other than "trolololol u" reeks of duelix shit.

you and kami probably are duelix tbh

You can't justify a Banhammer if the reason that you banned that person was because they did something outside of the forums. I'm NOT saying that impersonating xcriteria and posting gore is ok, but would make you a bad moderator if you banned someone for something outside of the forums.

Yeah, nobody except me can decide who to ban from the forums. And there will be no ban.
