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.

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.

I would just be really curious to see what would happen if they stay there for an extended period of time.

I believe that they would first try to take advantage of the people there. Then you'll see a change in their behavior as they slowly become accustomed to that environment.

That would be an awesome social experiment. The people in the society would also have to be tough because initially people like Hitler would try and take advantage of them as Derchin mentioned. They couldn't be pushovers.

Soul as usual your vast mind as astounded this old cynic soul.
Mostly agree with derchin in that they would try to take advantage of the society like they did before but then see the actual benefits and sort of settle down like a soldier from the past in a peaceful future would.

Damn, why do Soul's philosophies and beliefs grow on me?

People say the problem with me is I have psychotic tendencies and care not about other human beings I don't like and or know. So?

Well peace, love, and happiness are just as human as violence, war, and hate... except the former mostly feels a lot better than the latter. So ideas based around that will grow on intelligent individuals.

Yeah. Some of them might not even believe they're in a real place at all... might think they're dreaming or something. It'd be hard, but I sooo totally wanna see it happen. Hey, maybe I'll make it a "reality TV" show. Laugh
Oh wait, that'd never work... people only seem to enjoy watching complete retards on those.

Fixed which sometimes makes me wonder if most of humanity aren't closet masochists.
