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.

Hello!!

I'm exactly the kind of person you kids hate, and I can't wait to make you all very angry at me. Fu

"Troll" is a common defense mechanism. If someone disagrees with you, the immediate reaction is "lol troll." You can't just jump to that conclusion because you want to be victimized, however.

Granted, sometimes you are being trolled.

Sometimes you're just wrong.

This is cool. Out of all the forums I've been to, I haven't been accused of being someone else, yet. Describe Justin for me so I can more accurately impersonate him.

That wasn't what I was asking for at all. I've got to say, you people have an interesting way of greeting people.

On the off chance you're not some trolling faggot, welcome. This forum is quite different to any others you may have been on. We'll be needing your straightjacket size as well.

I'm not a young man. I also know when plural "you" is implied.

I think you hate people that think your opinions are retarded. Which is why I am admittedly a little apprehensive about my joining this forum.

I'm still waiting for instructions. :\

In the meantime, maybe you'd like to critique the writing I posted here? That'd be useful.

My friend who's still in high school posted the home page to Facebook. I read the articles, laughed a lot, and then decided to join the forums.
