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.

Re: Why don't we use youtube?

thats sounds like a kick ass video rebelnerd cant wait to see it.

life is just blah blah blah. we hope for blah, and sometimes we find it. but mostly its blah. and waiting for blah. and hoping you were right about the blahs you made. and when you think you just got the whole blah damn thing figured out, and your surrounded by the ones you blah. death shows up and blah blah blah.

Don't use music, not just yet. If you feel the need to use music, make it with a program like garage band or something.

You see, youtube is going to find something wrong with every single video we put up. And each time we will fix it, until they can't find anything else. Our goal here should be to get to the point where we have 100+ subscribers, because then Youtube might hesitate before they fuck with us. if we have like 200, 300, or even 400 subscribers, people are going to to care when we are gone, and then youtube will say, fuck it, have it your way.

Not sure if that will work, but let's try it. I know youtube is a bitch, but lets just see if we can succeed at least a little bit...

Hey L/Rebelnerd. Watch this - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V025E_b5I4g You might find some use for it when messing with youtube's dickery.

If anyone needs music composed for videos... Wolfeh might do it.

Also http://search.creativecommons.org/ lists some indexes of images and music searchable by license... if you search on the creative commons "use, adapt, modify" option the content should be safe to use. You're supposed to attribute any use of the works, though.

Youtube is making changes because it is operating at a massive loss --it's "on track to lose roughly $470 million in 2009."

Maybe they could make money other was than "huluizing" but to be fair that guy just presented a list of complaints and demands, without reference to what it costs youtube to run. They have to make money somehow. That said, the some of those changes do really suck.

There are always other sites to host videos on, though. And I don't think they've disabled the "search" functionality, and you can always link to videos in forum posts, blogs, emails, etc.

Re: Why don't we use youtube?

ok, its up. Still processing.

I played the song on speakers with a voice recorder nearby, so hopefully youtube won't recognize it. if anyone else running the youtube account is worried about legal issues, I'll take it down. nobody should get in trouble for it but me, so I figured I should let you folks know.


edit: SON OF A BITCH HOW THE FUCK DID THEY KNOW????? GODDAMNED AUDIO MUTE AGAIN!!!!!

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

Re: Why don't we use youtube?

yeah, but I timed everything around that one. but you know what, fuck it. i'll just put it on with no audio. if they were good enough to detect that song after it was distorted by all the crazy echoes in my basement, they deserve to find it. I'll keep working on it, but until then, enjoy it with no sound.

not yet. we need them to take down an entire video, not just the audio. otherwise it will be too obvious how we're trying to spin it. let's get some more up there, give it some time, and let it all play out.

Re: Why don't we use youtube?

We already got a fags comment and a one star rating.

"I heard a joke once. Man goes to doctor says "I'm terribly depressed". Doctor says "I know just what you should do. Poliacci the clown is in town, go see him, you'll be cheered right up." The man bursts into tears. "But Doctor, I am Poliacci." Funny joke. Roll on snare drum. Everyone laugh."

Everyone sign into their own accounts and vote 5 stars. it will get more views that way, and a better reputation.

WMG eats a fucking dick, and so do other youtube users. Although I think the large amount of spam comments is someone from this forum...

Nice video, by the way (it definitely needs music)...
