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.

Godammit why is nobody ever able to handle the patriarch. I swear, half the games I play I end up having to solo him as level 6 medic because everyone else are such muppets.

Perhaps if you could spare the rest of the $3,000 dosh you're always waving your wad around the rest of us could afford to buy better weapons.

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.

Yeah I hate those guys too. If only they'd stay out of the way so I can take care of the problem with no damage.

That too, not to mention demos who empty a whole M32 drum at a single clot, creating so much smoke it's a miracle you don't die from asphyxiation.

RE: Killing Floor thread

I swear sirens are borderline immune to headshots, I literally stuck my Handcannon in the face of one and fired three shots, not a single one counted as a headshot. This was after about 20 of them shrugged off LAR rounds to the forehead.

So yeah, fuck sirens.

RE: Killing Floor thread

"And the lord be our god Sapphire spake - 'fuck sirens', and so it was written."

But yeah that server had pretty bad lag anyway, it wouldn't surprise me if you were actually like an inch off the hitbox. Plus the AFAIK, it's impossible to decap a siren without killing her, seeing as how taking out her head requires killing off some 3/4 of her health.

When you're playing as a level 6 sharp on hard with 3 people in the server it's plain bullshit when you empty a LAR mag into her forehead and none of them are headshots though.

I don't usually buy guns.

RE: Killing Floor thread

Semi-old glitch with the 44 magnum. Buy one (2 weight blocks) then a second one (another 2 blocks). Sell the second one, but instead of subtracting 2 blocks it thinks it sold the full duals and subtracts 4 blocks while still leaving you with the single magnum. Rinse and repeat for progressively negative weight blocks, along with a potentially massive speed boost and basically unlimited inventory space, limited only by how much dosh you have.

But because tripwire are pillocks they patched it, and ended up breaking the single 44 magnum and making it useless in the process (it's weighed 4 blocks instead of the 2 it should since then and tripwire keeps rolling around in their mounds of quid instead of fixing it).

Well that sucks.

The IJC weapon pack is amazing and you really should play on servers with it.

http://forums.tripwireinteractive.com/sh...hp?t=51041

The Kel-Tec KSG is already out, and one of the weapons you will use most (I assume) is the M7A3, they actually gave the Medic a rifle. No weapons for demo yet though.

Nah, I hate the M7A3, looks way too much like something that wandered over from Halo and decided not to go back. The FAL looks nice though, and I can't wait till the UMP comes out (hope they'll keep with what Tripwire did and give the Medic another H&K submachine gun).
