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.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

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.

-SoulRiser

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. My contact details are here.

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.

You miss me?

...no? That's 'kay. It's w.e. *sob*

Took me forever to remember how to post a new topic. -_- N00b again...sigh.

Guess who got a new laptop that hasn't got parental blocks? My old one went KABLOOEY. (Yes, that was the actual sound it made. Obviously.)

Linux never worked - even restarting and all that. Freaking technology and my freaking inability to utilize it properly. Mad

My parents felt terrible for the internet-blocking, after a point. Doesn't forgive anything, really, but at least I am FREEE!!!

...and 18. That definitely helps.

Please fill me in on everything I missed out on. (aaaah preposition!) Seriously. EVERYTHING.


I missed SS. :( I missed you guys. :( Well. Not all of you. (loljkbutsyrsly.) O_O

Re: You miss me?

Hmmm what's new....

Rebelnerd's in China
A new member, Night.artist tried to kill herself... She's in a psych ward right now
Fucking Spiderman = A certain britfag who has a taste for spiderman macro's (If you know what I mean)

And I'm pretty new, so that's like half of it.

Hidden stuff:

As benign as the intentions may be, any system that forces people into an environment where they have no say in their lives is a situation ripe for abuse of power.

The funny thing was that rebelnerd could get on this site from China.

Re: You miss me?

Holy. Shit. I remember you, was wondering if you were ever going to come back.

Well, let's see what happened, off the top of my head.

AWOL and Jesusaurus got banned (LE GASP!) for trolling a google relief thing for the Japanese tsunami.
Rebelnerd was captured by the Chinese.
The RIKRON rose and fell.
Carla Franklin threatened legal action against Soul because Absent had "Carla Franklin is a whore" in his sig. Soul moved the site server to France 'cause the whore complained to the people running the US server she was on.
Duelix=Denied=Fagix=Schoolh8erfaggot=Jaron=Dale Nixon=Justin, keep that in mind
A certain britfag (hint: name starts with baro and ends with strangle)'s parents found SS and temporarily took away his internet access and shit.
We (I) started an SS Steam group.
We got a handful of new members who are pretty cool, like the UnschoolShqipPonje dude or whatever it is.
And most recently, Weswammy and Amortisatie came back.

I know there's a LOT more, but that's all I remember at the moment.

Thanks for all the info. Seems I've been missing out.

Nah, My parents got a hold of my laptop after I'd written something for gallery night in art club they didn't like and blocked certain sites because of it. :\
