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.

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. Send me a message if you'd like to keep in touch with me & Steve.

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.

Will You Come Back Here After Your Out?

I was just wondering if any of you guys will actually come back to the site even after your out of High School and College? I mean i had a bad thought that when everybody is out and living their lives free to do whatever they want and express themselves how ever they want that the site might just go empty and shut down.

But then I had another thought that the site might move on to a next "Generation" of people on the site and might manage to stay up.

I hope this site stays up forever. Because I know there are many people out there who have the same thoughts and views as many of us here now.

Re: Will You Come Back Here After Your Out?

I dunno, really. SS has been heaven and hell for me. It opened my eyes, but made me really jaded and bitter.

A tough question for sure.

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.

I thought of this as well. But I'll definitely stay once I finish school and uni. I'll help the next generation of teens Biggrin
I think most of us would stay anyway Biggrin

Re: Will You Come Back Here After Your Out?

I was actually happy about the false closure announcement, because that way I wouldn't have to rely on my self-determination to give up on this place.

I just go with how I feel. If I start disliking or getting bored with a place I stop posting... I don't force myself to post for the sake of it.

lol. That's a really cool story you have about leaving your school. A sad, tragic tale. Almost like a villain origin story.

I graduate this year from college. Took me a while, but changing my major from computer science to automotive technology set me back a bit. I'm going to stay around and become more active here.
