so, if we all spam comment on a ton of his videos we might be able to convince him to make a video about SS

I don't think he takes too kind to spam.

Didn't he already do a video on us?

I'm composing a plan to Make School Survival Great Again but it's in the planning stages.

RE: actively campaign to get noticed and mentioned by boyinaband

too many mexicans and Muslims...oh, wrong forum.

but no, I dont think we were ever mentioned.

also to be clear, I just mean we should comment on his videos and mention SS. the odds of us being seen increase with more comments

RE: actively campaign to get noticed and mentioned by boyinaband

SR could tweet to boyinaband and we could all like and retweet it!

something like: hey, so we got a support forum for people who dont like school over here. come check us out..

but probably better than that

To be honest, this is actually what I want to touch upon in my plan.

Latin America is a pretty tech savvy region and home of plenty of school haters. Argentina, Brazil, and Mexico's education systems are full of shite. I'm unaware of some kind of Spanish version of School Survival, though there are definitely grievances to be found in those countries.

I'm not going to generalize Muslim countries, but definitely a good number of them (Indonesia, Egypt, Algeria, Malaysia, etc) are pretty tech savvy and have shite education systems too. Actually, a lot of traffic SS gets is from Asia (especially India), so this is another thing to note.

TL;DR - Best way to get ourselves heard is to promote ourselves in other languages to other cultures.

I've never been good at looking for attention (I tend to actively avoid it), but... I retweeted your tweet. Laugh

It would be nice if he could mention us to his followers or something.

The general approach to attracting the attention of famous/popular people is to consistently comment on their stuff, so yeah, that is a good idea. As long as it isn't 'spammy' or annoying to him in any way.

While celebrity endorsements aren't bad I suggest we keep building from the ground up. It's kind of like a sports team bringing in some flashy star without actually trying to build a serious team.

Normally the advice people give is "make friends with other people in your niche!" ... but, like... there aren't really any.

I have a couple of ideas for reaching out to unschooling bloggers though, but I suppose they don't have much to gain from talking to us.

We need to build a strong userbase. Today this is just an "old boys club" with a few other younger school haters.

I also forgot to say: if we're going to be taken seriously, we need to provide something with actual value.

I'm not too sure what xcriteria is doing this days though linking up to some kind of alternate education program would be very helpful. Another thing is actually functioning like a service in some small way, like a wiki.

A lot of the "guides", etc are vastly out of date so it's not like we're even providing something useful.

Quote:it's not like we're even providing something useful.
We're informing people that there's nothing wrong with them for hating school, and providing a community. How is that not useful? That's honestly been the entire point of the site all along since I figured out that there were other people besides me who hate school and would probably benefit from knowing that they're not alone.

Lots of shit could use an update and some error-checking though.

I didn't mean the main content or gist of the site itself; I meant a lot of the old shit that is still on the front pages.

It definitely needs to be updated. We need a team though. I should get in touch with the SS community on Facebook to see if they're interested.

Yeah. I've thought about migrating most of the content to Wordpress or the Wiki... but it'll be a pain in the ass to do, and redirect all the old links, etc. Would be pretty handy for making it easier for others to edit stuff though.

RE: actively campaign to get noticed and mentioned by boyinaband

I would like to get boyinaband's attention too. One thing I'd suggest is if several people from here become patreon sponsors we could get on his monthly livestreams and jumpstart conversation about education issues. I have been on these but I think I'm the only one wanting to talk about education and I feel out of place with it just being me.

Anyone else want to do that?

RE: actively campaign to get noticed and mentioned by boyinaband

I also think updating the site seriously would be a good step before it being in a boyinaband video. And/or we could ask him to link to the Alliance for Self-directed Education and people could find SS through that.

I've also been considering making a third site that's more streamlined and can link to both SS and the Alliance site.

creating a new site is probably our best option at this point. we've been talking about updating the content on this site for years and nothing has changed, except a few cosmetic things and a new skin.
