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.

-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. 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.

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

she also later impersonated xcriteria, a widely respected member of the forum.

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

how do you feel about me banning g, then unbanning him, then banning aaaaaa...?

Well I remember thinking that he was a troll. I've never really like Gwedin, but he didn't deserve a ban. I think that a ban should be a last resort only, not something that you use to get rid of a slightly annoying user. When he was banned, I immediately thought that he should be unbanned.

btw dove is so far one of the ppl i care abt here

we obviously care abt different people

i guess that is fair enough

but i will keep trying to do 2 things

1 protect those i care about
2 attract more people of the type i tend to care about

7. I understand why you would ban him, I just really don't agree with a banhammer in this situation.

ok.

would u try to tell me why u thought i banned him when u first read i banned him?

and also why you think i banned him now if you have more of an understanding now...

ok

would you like to know how much i feel understood about it?

im noticing some patterns...

comments like "you people" and "these people"

also, i am seeing a lot of people feeling pain/frustration/anger from what i will call an unmet need for understanding...

people express their pain in different ways.

1. they might say "wtf are you doing, you dumb ass. you are totally fucking insane."

or

2. they might post *bangs head against wall

or

3. they might say "im having a really hard time understanding.... can you help me out, please"


3 would be the most consistene with my paulish beliefs

===

shfbook

--
note: what shfbook means is i am flagging this for part of the content in a possible book which will combine my ideas on eqi.org and paulish.net with material from the ss forum.

sr, i and ben have started talking abt this as a new project
