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.

Is it a new forum split-off à la Dark & Edgy? Who's creating it?


I scrolled through the Discord chat history and apperantly Chanku is creating it, Vonovuv will take care of hosting, and Hansgrohe will moderate it. Still, I wonder what it precisely is.

RE: So what is this "Splinter Cell" thing people are talking about?

Yeah Chanku came in offering to help run an alt forum if we could get a server. As I already have one I took care of hosting it. I named it Splinter Cell because both Chanku and I thought of it independently, which I thought was funny enough for a working title.

A vote is active in the discord but I don't really like any of the other names and I don't have any ideas, lol. But it's whatever the people decide, what's it to me?

We don't even really know if this is going to go anywhere, maybe people will just talk on discord. But it's there for those who want to see how going somewhere else works out as a solution, without swarming into DnE, lol.

Maybe something interesting will happen. I needed something to put on my new domain anyway so this was a welcome excuse.

7355608 is the bomb code in CSGO, just my little reference. It wasn't registered for this purpose. I've got a personal site on a subdomain of it, but the main domain was still waiting for something to put on it.

We're running FluxBB.
