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.

Videogame Dreams

These are always so much weirder than movie dreams, because it's always you who's stuck in some crazy situation rather than a character, especially with FPS.
I had a Halo dream once where the Flood had overrun my town were going to kill my dad, and I was running out of time and had to choose whether to save him or to leave him behind and activate this bomb that would wipe them all out. A friend of mine described it as "like the Bible" which I never really understood. I guess because of the idea of sacrifice for the good of humanity or something, I don't know.

But a few days ago I had this dream that there was a nuclear war, and a friend from my hall was trapped in Boston. The last radio communication we got from him was a call for help, saying that they were running out of food and fuel and needed a rescue pronto. So me and a few other people from the dorm (only the people who played Fallout 3, mind you) headed down to Boston. But when we found him, he was in a pristine office building in perfect condition with no sign of any shortages or serious damage. Apparently he'd reestablished order by setting himself up as a brutal warlord who used slave labor and raided the people living nearby. And in real life, this kid is one of the most friendly people I know. But he does play Fallout 3.

I think Buenaventura Durruti is a pretty cool guy. eh kills fascists and doesnt afraid of ruins.

Re: Videogame Dreams

As a level designer, I tend to get those a lot. Especially FPS.
Sometimes I even get normal dreams, which are playing on the 'engine' of a certain game, last time it was game mechanics and textures from Quake 2. Like, wtf because I screwed around with that game a good few years ago already.

Problem, officer?

Re: Videogame Dreams

I have game dreams all the time, including one I had about oblivion 2 nights ago.
Can never remember any details, other than that it was awesome.

Fallout 3 is great, no matter what the super-butthurt oldfag fans might say.
Though it is buggy and prone to crashing, they are right about that.

Lulz, would you believe that I've been playing for over a year, with several thousand hours of play, and I've never played as anything but an ultra good guy?

Re: Videogame Dreams

Lol I just finished killing ever single killable character, good and bad, in the entire game. Including every expansion pack. Needless to say, my karma was not particularly high.

Re: Videogame Dreams

When I had started playing Silent Hill 2 I had dreams where i was playing the game...and the images haunted my mind in the darkness...that game has serious psychological effects Uhoh Bigeek

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.

Yeah, but for some reason the map editor is incredibly fun. And the game loads in about 3 seconds. Sometimes you aren't in the mood for awesome graphics and immersive gameplay and you just want a quick, easy way to shoot people while iTunes plays Slipknot in the background. Know what I mean?

Had a dream I was in Doom once. Cyberdemons aren't too friendly. Neither are Barons of Hell. Good thing I had my trusty super shotgun and BFG 9000(2 of the best fps guns ever).

Re: Videogame Dreams

I had a dream where I was in the Kuma/War (war game that puts you in events in the Middle East as they happen, it's free for download) mission where you try and capture Osama Bin Laden, and I was the last guy alive in the four man team. For some reason my rifle and pistol were both out of ammo, so I had some knife fight with OBL, and then right when I was about to kill him, I woke up. It was scary and awesome at the same time.

I once had a dream where I installed all of the original Sim games, that was my whole dream, I woke up before I even started playing the game. One of the most boring dreams I've ever had.

Re: Videogame Dreams

I'm not sure if I've had any.

I'm betting I've had a WoW related one though, good thing I gave that up.

Anything that ever happened or will... one condition, it has to be amazing.
