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.

Glad you're not sore about the religion thing. I don't have a problem with your belief, I just disagree with religion. And you're a swell guy, you know that? You're part of what makes this site blossom, matey, keep on rolling.

I didn't feel offended. But everyone turned against me in the discord chat, so I left.

I HATE my school. I'd rather die than go to school for another 6 years.Fu

I take it back, Steve, I'm not sorry. I thought you weren't an abusive, power-hungry, little bitch before you fucked SS up.

I don't hate you. I never did. In fact, I remember we even had productive discussions a few years ago (when I was 16-17 and stuck in the clink AKA high school) and I found your posts to be cool. I never found you to be harmful. So no, I still don't hate you, even with the revelations that have come forth.

I don't know you personally, so I won't go personal here.

Nonetheless... if you want reasons why I don't support you, here I go...

1. You have abused your power - You have demodded Night, who was a competent moderator who cared about the forum and how it was run, and was seen as a positive member of the community, despite her controversial status. All she did was close a very controversial thread, which probably should've just been marked with a trigger warning (fair enough). However it should be noted that there are legal repercussions that exist, especially given that this was on a public internet forum. Nonetheless, demodding her was completely unwarranted and unjustified.

With that, you have banned Gwedin, Ury, and Vonunov for honestly asinine reasons. Gwedin was somewhat justified admittedly as he acts like an ass, but banning him was going too far. Vonunov was considered one of the most sane members on here, yet you banned him, for dissenting.

2. Favoritism - You're showing blatant favoritism here. Again, let's take the offenses of Korravatar into account:
1. She sent gore to members of the site on the unofficial Discord chat (which might as well be official) and through personal messages on Discord. This was unwarranted.

2. She posted photos of members on public forums as well as their private info as well without consent. This is actually considered doxing and is bannable on many forums.

3. She attempted to impersonate a member of the forum on the Discord chat in order to circumvent a ban that was on place in her, that member being xcriteria.

4. She previously was spamming the Thanks system. Not horrible, but incredibly annoying.

5. Her thread on the age of consent was bordering on pedo-enabling.

But somehow, Korravatar is somehow just a misunderstood sensitive girl, while Night and Gwedin are the spawn of Satan himself. If you're not going to be punishing people properly and equally, as I tried to do when I was in your position, then I don't consider you a legitimate moderator. Your favoritism to Benjavaz is kinda unsettling as well, which is sad as I actually like Benjavaz.

3. You're unqualified and submit to Soul - Previously, you were not a moderator, and likely for good reason. I remember me, xcriteria, DoA, Night and Brainiac were the original moderators on here after Soul decided that something needed to be done about the trolling. And for the most part, we did our jobs objectively, without abuse of power and things were relatively smooth.

However, the difference between me/Night and you is that we did not 100% submit to Soul. We had differing visions of the site, but for the most part, things were peaceful. Then I had to post a thread on whether Korravatar should be banned and gave the community to vote; the vote said no, so I respected the decision.

But ultimately, Soul thought I was being a bully, even though I wasn't at all. It pissed me off that she demodded me because I felt I was doing my job accordingly. But no, she has to let her feelings get in the way of everything.

I posted public threads about my demodding because the community had to know what went on. Justice is blind and serves no patron.

Immediately though, you are using your power in order to shutdown everyone who opposes you and Soul. This is how a dictatorship is run, silencing dissidents. Actually, this feels a lot like an American high school. Literally, School Survival is becoming the thing it claims to oppose.

I remember some of the DnE members were quite critical of me but I never banned them because of it.

So, there you go.

Also, I take that last sentence as a threat. But if you two want to ban me, then go ahead, I guess. I imagine this forum will collapse, especially since I was one of the most active posters on here.
