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.

Tongue Ayyy! Looky, I finally joined.

Hello, hello! Danni here. Nice to meet ya!

I've been browsing the topics on this forum for a while now, but I never bothered to register.

Until now that is, hohohoho

Anywho, I'll say a little bit about myself. I'm 15, wasting away in high school as we speak. I like to draw, play old-school games and watch a shit-tonne of anime. Blue eyes, black shoulder-length hair. I'm a relatively social individual, so feel free to drop me a message anytime! I'm kinda quiet in real life, but I really open up to those I'm close with! Grouphug

I'm also complete South Park trash. God help me Hammer

Anywhooo, I think that'll do for now. Hope to meet some cool people Biggrin

Sanity? Can't lose what you don't have. Lmao, I play all sorts. I like the classic Zelda titles and the Sonic Adventure series. I'm also still big on PaRappa the Rapper and Billy Hatcher. Occasionally some Starfox, too.

And heyy, someone got the reference! One of my fave songs! I do like music, but not any particular kind. Just a whole jumble of things. I was big on Panic!/MCR/Fall out boy last year like the edgey teen I am.

thank you for the warm welcome!~
