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.

Forum downtime

Basically, someone deleted all their posts (over 4000 of them).. that's why I restored a forum backup. Losing that many posts affects a lot of discussions and kinda makes them not make so much sense anymore. So, that's why we can't let people delete all of their posts. So don't post anything you might want to get rid of again, K? Razz

The past 12 hours of posts were lost because of the backup restore (well, not completely - they're just in a different database and will have to be manually restored by hand). So if you posted anything really important... I hope you have a backup of it XD

I can set up a copy of the 'newer' forum so you can see the newer posts. Or something.

EDIT:
I have set up a copy of the "newer" version of the forums here:

Use it to read & retrieve anything you need to... but try not to actually post or reply there 'cause it's just temporary. If you wanna respond to something, copy & paste it onto this copy of the forums and then reply to that.

Re: Forum downtime

Well, I don't understand how someone could delete so many of their posts, because you can't delete your post after someone posted after it, unless you have mod powahs. But I checked the post whores list and nobody has less posts than the last time I went over it.

I think that was the point of the forum restoration, so that the posts would come back.

I doubt i posted anything important.
