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.

Welcome aboard good sir. Insanity is compulsory, and all of that nonsense. Also, pirates and stuff. That should about cover it then.

Welcome, leave your sanity in the bin by the door. Was recently cleaned out, so don't keep any on you, there's plenty of room.

Re: HELLO! im the hero of kavatch.

You're the hero of Kvatch! Oh how can we repay you, lol. Welcome to School Survival man. Oblivion is awesome, and soon I'm gonna pre-order Skyrim. About sanity, any normal person here on School Survival thinks I'm partially crazy, lol.

I'm a therian, not a human, and I'm proud of it. No matter what others say, I will be strong.

Ah, I didn't remember that. The guy pissed me off, so I killed him before I finished the quest... lol

And Skyrim looks badass. Dual wielding FTW

Yeah, Skyrim will be EPIC. I am so excited that I know how to sing the theme song to it. I am so crazy for Skyrim.

Re: HELLO! im the hero of kavatch.

Skyrim will be a piece of shit for 12-year-old American faggots.

Yes, that's ... racist, whatever, but it's true.


They removed SO many of the skills and magic houses and shit. They've simplified it to the point of no return.

Skyrim can go fuck itself. It has disappointed me.

Let go of all desire for the common good, and the good becomes common as grass.

I'm afraid that the same will happen to S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2; that it'll get dumbed down for consoles.

They removed Mysticism, Athletics, and Acrobatics. Those three skills were totally pointless.

Although they did remove a thing or two that I'll miss. I really hope they quit with the simplification soon. I don't think that they've gone too far yet, and I'm hoping that they don't in the future. I played WoW a couple of years ago, and the same thing happened to it. That game is the most cookie-cutter, simple, boring piece of shit now...

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.
