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 guess I also came back.. again

I probably should have made this thread before I posted everywhere, but I forgot. The reason I have been inactive for quite a while, in a nutshell, is because we were in the process of moving. What's important is that i'm back, i've changed quite a bit in mentality, and i'm ready to ease my way back into the chaotic jeering rave I call SS. This time i'm trying to be more permanent than the last time I made a "I have returned" thread. Also, if there are any new guys who have survived the infamous SS welcoming committee, congratulations, i'm Amortisatie, nice to meet you. Smile

So anyways, I need to get caught up to speed with recent changes and whatnot. Have there been any shitstorms/troll invasions/all hell breaking loose because of one person since I have been gone?

The Carla Franklin incident, other than that we get nothing more notable than the occasional Dale Nixon troll account.

si jeni? Not sure what language that is, but from looking at the flags in your sig I can say... that I still don't know, lemme guess, Polish?

He's Albanian

So on the http://www.school-survival.net/forums/vi...=5&t=15829 you said this:

True, I wouldn't want to be a blob, and maybe let the players play their own music, alot better than random crap that games (like runescape) throw into the mix.

I ARE MAD

Again, I agree with you. School does teach you things. And once again, you are missing the point entirely. It's not that I disagree with school's mission or the things it teaches. What I object to is that the students are deprived of any choice in the matter. 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.

Well... blobs are awesome and everything, but I just wouldn't want to be one, i'm not amazing enough to handle the thought of me being a blob ;D
