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.

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.

Degrees vs. Knowlegde

Sorry if this is the wrong place to put this post, but I'm looking for advise. I'm planning on making a cartoon for adults( lots of horror, sex, and violence xD) that teaches college-level math and related subjects like calculus and physics. Do I need a degree in math to do that, or can I just learn it on my own and hire people that have the degree( I plan on staring a tiny animation studio probably)?

You can say anything you want but you won't be credited.
I mean I could sit here all day going on about nuclear physics but none of you would take it seriously.

Re: Degrees vs. Knowlegde

You can hire people who know the math and you can do the animation yourself...of course they'd get a share of profit.

Why wouldn't we take it seriously? I'm interested...

TRIGGER WARNING: THIS TRIGGER WARNING CONTAINS TRIGGER WARNINGS!

Dear Tumblrites: Despite your wrongly self-diagnosed PTSD, no line of scientific evidence suggests people can be triggered over the internet. Triggering works through the senses (i.e. smell, taste, touch, vision, hearing.) but it goes through real time; if you're not experiencing it in real life as it's ACTUALLY HAPPENING in your ACTUAL life, you CANNOT be triggered. The only exception to this is if you have a seizure, but then again, that's triggered by epilepsy (i.e. rapidly-changing flashing lights) NOT PTSD. Remembering a bad incident is NOT the same thing as having a flashback. When you remember, you think; when you flashback, you feel.

Nah, I'd take you seriously. Btw, nuclear physics is my second favorite branch of physics( thermal's my first). Would you mind telling me all you know about nuclear physics? I'm afraid I only know the basics thus far.

Re: Degrees vs. Knowlegde

Why on earth would you need a degree for that? If you're doing a good job of explaining the stuff, and all your information is valid, I don't see a problem.

Re: Degrees vs. Knowlegde

A degree is just a piece of paper that proves that you can do the work to your employer. You don't really need it, especially since you're going to be starting the studio yourself. Just find some people to help you out and work. Whether you pay them or not depends on how much they're going to work. But starting a business, usually you need to "gamble" a bit by spending some money on starting your business.
