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.

Should I make a gaming youtube channel?

If so vote up there what it should be about or if it shouldn't be done.

RE: Should I make a gaming youtube channel?

Do you have access to brand new games?

That could be the ticket.

Do let's play of games you enjoy, I personally would let's play some retro games.

I remember when this guy only had a couple of hundred subscribers, now he's almost at 10,000. Best thing to do is keep at it and never give up.

RE: Should I make a gaming youtube channel?

I can't ever do lets plays because there is someone ALWAYS at the house. I can never do it in time for when they get here unannounced. I've only got 30 minutes alone in the past 3 days and then my stupid brother showed up unannounced and went into my room while I was recording so I had to stop. Do you think it would be fine if I used those silly text to speech things like in Xtranormal?

Why can't you just talk? If your parents ask why you're talking to yourself, say you're talking to teammates in your game or are recording videos.

Is that assassin's tower on your channel on Luna's server?

Also the audio is pretty quiet on your let's play. Other than that, pretty awesome. I gave you your first like :D

RE: Should I make a gaming youtube channel?

Look at the ":D" in your quote. Now look at it my quote.

I don't like the forums smileys, so I always disable them because the text versions look better.

A video of someone playing a game and doing commentary on it that's directed at the viewers.
