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.

Hello Everybody!

Hi! I'm new to the forums, so I figure that this would be a good place to start posting!

To start off, I am so incredibly glad that I found this site. Lately I have been having some serious issues with school. I'm at a loss as to what to do, and I feel so trapped in my situation. Places like this help a lot.

Second of all, are there any little forum things and advice I should know? Like inside jokes, mannerisms, stuff like that!

Sorry if this post sounds stupid, but I suppose I have to start off somewhere ^-^

Hello Everybody!

Hellooo there! Pirate2

Welcome to School Survival! Feel free to leave your sanity in the bin by the door - you won't be needing it in here.

What do you do for fun?

We have like millions of inside jokes and such... I can't remember them all. You may encounter some along the way... that's probably the best way to find them.

Hello Everybody!

hai

being trapped in school is a part of the fun, sadly. Don't take it too seriously and you should be fine.*

RE: Hello Everybody!

Hello Scarlet. I hope the good ship SS can help you out with some of the problems you're having Pirate
I found SS a long time ago when I was in the 7th grade, and it really helped me in dealing not only with school but the alot of issues that I faced in life. You probably won't see to much of me, I don't post alot anymore, but I like to drop in from time to time to see how things are.

Welcome aboard matey! Pirate2
