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.

"pedo enabler"
ha ha

nice new label

nice way to try to throw mud at some one, discredit them, hurt them

very clever

but very violent

i am learning a lot from how g talks in here.

interestingly, he was fine with me in the short chat we had w/ ben an others

its sad what happened but it was necessary, and, i believe better to deal with it quickly and guess decisively.

i dont wish him any harm or pain. i can honestly say i wish him well. perhaps a few of us can chat again. im open to that.

i know he doesnt value and seems to disdain or hate online hugs but if i saw him in person i would offer him a real one.

i would feel good if learns something useful from this. and if others did. i feel sure at least a few people will.

perhaps i could have handled it better. it's so easy to second guess, judge/criticize me no. but i am at peace w/ my decision.. or lets say 8 out of ten at peace.

one thing i feel good about is i have helped soul see more clearly who she can count on here.

for that, i feel good.

and i feel appreciated by sr.

sr has made a positive diff in my life, as i know i have in hers.

hug to sr.

i love u sr

let that be part of ss history

This "lel he's trying to label me, I'm so above that" garbage is making you sound like a teenage girl trying to sound mature, and failing with pathetic results.

Steve, you literally banned two people for no other reason than you thinking they don't fit the mold of what you think SS should be. There's no justification for that. You deserve all the ridicule you get for it. If you're going to respond with a wall of blather about "labels"/"i will give everyone hugs"/"i'm a victim and so is Soul", don't bother. You just discredit yourself every time you try.

And Stevie, If I hated you, I wouldn't be saying this. I would just sit back and watch your reputation burn. Keep that in mind.

"Warning 1"

Sure, Steve. Go ahead and prove my point for me.

Your threat isn't going to faze me. So if you want to try to silence me, ban me. Go on ahead. Make me a martyr, and fuel your own funeral pyre. I dare you.

Either way, I still win. Banning me solely for opposing you will not only demonstrate your ridiculous power trip for everyone to see, but it'll also give me plenty of ammo to use in all but blacklisting this forum for potential new members.

Say I'm "undermining the forum." Clearly, I care more about it than you do, as I want to keep its spirit protected from control freaks. Respond with a "warning" and demonstrate what a sham you really are.

If that was the reason you would've been banned yesterday. But you weren't banned yesterday now were you?

No, you were banned because you kept spamming. That's the facts whether you want to accept it or not.

Or wait, as it turns out, you're not even banned, you left your damn self. So you're a fucking liar.

You guys have verbally attacked people, chased away a new user, labeled users as pedos, and yet you expect this forum to give in to unbanning everyone? And I have some screenshots of my own. I'm adding every last one of you that came after me to my ignore list.

Everything was fine, yep, Gwedin and Uryotigi chased nobody away, and it wasn't months before this stuff. Nothing to see here folks. And nobody got called a pedo.

Alright. That the posts weren't removed is not something I wanted to accuse of (I don't expect a bunch of slaves to be monitoring this forum 24/7). It was just the "everything was fine" statement that angered me.

That's your personal warning level, it goes up when you've receive a warning. What Hans is talking about is a trigger warning system.

Gonna say this again: I recommended this to Soul but she refused to implement it.

When I was a mod there was never an option for a warning. Not that I can remember. If there was, I believe it was quickly removed.

So, like the ignore feature, but enabled by default for a certain user? Yeah, I suggested that too.
