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.

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.

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.

It might depend on what version of windows you have...
My Vista came with it.

Looks like the XP download is at http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/down ... aker2.mspx

Re: Why don't we use youtube?

Hey does it matter if there's an official channel or not? Letting anyone take part could make it easier for people to join in.

I'll make a video as well.

PS Rebel did you upload the video? Could you post a link if you did?

Yeah, people could just upload to their own account, with the ss channel as an alternate. The web site could have a page with links to relevant videos... ideally something that could be edited by someone other than soul...

Re: Why don't we use youtube?

I didn't upload it yet. I don't have the password and I'm not sure how to send it to someone that does. Didn't think it would be a good idea to upload it on my accout, since I've already made one that's kind of similar and it wouldn't look very origional. No hurry though.

I think we should have several people with the password, to keep everything managed properly. Rebelnerd can be one of them if he and everyone else agree.

Sure, but I don't think you can upload a powerpoint to youtube.

The only good signature is a dead signature.

Re: Why don't we use youtube?

If we are going to use the channel I posted, I have decided to give it to the people I think are the most "involved". I am going to give the password to The Avenger, Rebelnerd, and Jonno, any objections?

Re: Why don't we use youtube?

I would make a video, because I have this awesome video idea, but I am kinda nervous. Somehow, when I started making videos a couple months ago, he knew about them. I have no idea, the only thing I could think of is that he monitor my email, but this account is set up under a different email of mine, so I don't know...

I didn't know they weren't, thanks for posting a complaint, I will fix it.

EDIT: It is because we don't have any videos up and we don't have any favorites. Just wait until we get some videos up to subscribe. Ima try to work on one today....

Re: Why don't we use youtube?

Okay, I uploaded mine but the audio got removed. So I deleted it and will put it back on once I've found a way around that, because, goddammit, WMG can suck my fucking balls. I'll play the song really loud on speakers with a voice recorder next to it if I have to.
