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.

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.

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.

Abuse of mod position??

Night, why did you close my "Abolish the Age of Consent" thread? If you didn't like our views, you could've just left it and ignored it. What was the point of not allowing any more comments in it? There was no flame war, extreme hate, or anything else other closed threads commonly have.

I have de-moded night. or tried to

sr basically said i can run the forums for a while. im gonna be making some changes.

i feel bad about de moding night - i am willing to talk to her.

but i like dove. so im supporting dove here.

night can appeal to sr. sr can make the final call.

i feel pretty calm about it. im not planning on getting too emotionally invested here.

i might come across as a bit cold but i know what i want to see happen to this forum. i want it to be a place where members are not judging and labeling other members, for example.

my plan is to set a new standard here. i think i have sr's support.

time will tell

im not sure whats happening in discord.. i heard some shit happened today.

but im not too concerned.

this is sr's site. discord is outside of it.

i may not always have a lot of time to talk to pple and explain or defend my decisions

today i had some couchsurfing visitors from mexico. tomorrow i travel to the capital - montevideo. and we will see a friend of mine who tried to kill herself may 1 of this year. she is very important to me. i was crying like a mother fucker today when she said she was feeling suicidal today. she only told me. for some goddamn reason people like to talk to me when they are feeling suicidal

so this forum is moving in a direction of being safe for suicidal teens.
and moving in the direction of being a suicide prevention site.

sorry if some pple dont like that or agree.

it will no longer be a place where u can say whatever u want about the other members here.

and i dont believe in democracy. bitch if u want. i trust my instincts.

they have saved a lot of lives.

im tired of pple who are not in school anymore who are judgmental as hell towards people who are still in school.

that doesnt work for me

night was saying things way too judgmental for me. and yeah she abused her power as a mod as far as i am concerned.

so yeah there u go, as they say.

oh night also put a 5 day ban on dove - i lifted it

SnowDove, you know this is a support site? I don't you should be banned, but a Trigger Warning being stapled onto your thread, and you getting slapped on the wrist is overdue.

Besides, you revealed private pictures of our members without their consent (and it doesn't matter that you removed them, just like Hitler closing concentration camps of his own accord does not excuse them being there in the first place), and spammed discord with gore. Plus a whole host of other offenses.

THIS. I've actually felt this way before this mess started. Certain threads should be given trigger warnings, etc. Of course these threads should be moderated as usual, but the people entering said thread have been warned.

Ultimately its up to the user to view those threads. I've avoided certain parts of various forums because of this and hence, never had any issues.
