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.

NationStates

In NationStates, you create a nation and gain complete control over it. It takes only a few dozen of seconds per day, but it really gets you thinking about controversial issues.

Well, just try it out for yourself: http://www.nationstates.net

For newbies as well as expirienced players, there's an official SS and NYRA region called Youth Rights Alliance. Everyone's encouraged to join!

Don't take life so seriously, it isn't permanent.

Re: NationStates

Hooray, I got in. And they probably will 5. You improved your civil rights from " Some " to
" Excellent " in one day, and you moved up like 3 spaces on the top nations list in Youth Rights Alliace.

^Way better.

"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."

Nah. It sucks. Plus there's some parts you have to pay for. This thread is for NationStates discus only, not NS2 discus.

Re: NationStates

Also, Jolt closed NS2 and hasn't been paying to use the NationStates name.

Carla Franklin has never denied that on the afternoon of the third of August 2006 she raped and killed sixteen children celebrating their friend's fifth birthday and forced their parents to share a dinner of their remains.


If a teacher you don't know tries to bust you for something, just tell them "Jsem výměnný student, nemluvím anglicky. Tak jdi do prdele ty posranej hajzle, tvoje matka je kurva!", then send me money.

Was this the thing with the enigma bandits?

This has been a test of the emergency pointless argument system. Had this been a real pointless argument, someone would have been called a facist.

Inside sources say that Carla Franklin has had more dick in her than a public urinal.
