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.

YouTube reaches terribad new lows

http://socialtimes.com/youtube-testing- ... ons_b64985
Quote:This morning an interesting post went up on the Google Operating System unofficial Google news blog. The post announced that YouTube was testing a new feature—YouTube Reactions. The post features screenshots of the new feature, which apparently lets YouTube users click reaction buttons to decide whether a video is LOL, OMG, EPIC, CUTE, WTF or FAIL.

When I read the post this morning it sounded a little bit too awesome to be true and I wanted to reach out to YouTube to make sure that this wasn’t a late April Fool’s joke. It’s no joke. Jacques Herbert of Global Communications & Public Affairs at YouTube told me, “These video reaction tags are part of a test we’re doing on a small group of our users. The goal is to take frequently used expressions from our comments system and make them into tags to users can express themselves with just a click of the button. Depending on how the test goes, we’ll consider rolling the feature out to more users.”

Old youtube will always beat new youtube. As Abesent said, as long as youtube keeps playing videos I guess, and adblocker plus keeps blocking those ads then I don't care. At least its free.

Also EPIC is overused to hell and FAIL is a verb. But whatever, shit catches on. OMG will get the christfags raging and WTF will be objected by all mums.

We are officially a nation (world?) of stupid fucks.

Go to work. Send your kids to school. Follow fashion. Act normal. Walk on the pavement. Watch TV. Save for your old age. Obey the law. Repeat after me: "I am free."

Dude I couldn't agree more. Lots of awesome videos are getting disabled because of "COPYRIGHT" bullshit. Even if the song is playing in the background for like 2 seconds...
I would use another site if more people did though.

Re: YouTube reaches terribad new lows

This is a minor change that doesn't affect me in the slightest. However, if Youtube doesn't quit changing their shit, they are all going to die a painful death at the hands of the populace. 'Tis frustrating, adjusting to new crap that was changed or added despite the fact that THE OLD SHIT WORKED JUST FINE, THANK YOU.

I thought quite a bit about this and typed out a few replies but I didnt really like any of them, so here we go.

Yes, sometime I am a buzzkill, however that goes hand in hand with my hatred for stupidity. Sometimes I enjoy being a buzzkill, which is called trolling. This situation is about 50% troll, 40% Quite whining like a little bitch, and 10% Sarcasm and Cinicism.

Who the fuck cares if youtube wants to add tags to the videos poeple can vote on? I dont recall people getting up in arms when they made a vezuvela button. I mean, I could see why people might get bent up over something like if they MADE you vote on the video upon its completion before you can even watch something else. If you dont want to use it then dont fucking use it.
