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.

No. That game is just another time waster that you have to invest money into to get anywhere.

Re: Eve Online

did the trial, it was fun while it lasted. still, I dont want to dump my money into that game, even though it is a cheaper alternative to buying a 60$ new game every month.

the think I liked about eve was the completely player driven game play, and the Economy of eve simply fascinates me. they actually have Economists who study the game, and I hear some stock brokers and sales representatives play to game to sharpen their skills. during the weeks I played I was hired by a drug runner gang, who would pay me a significant amount to distract the police by firing missile barrages into them. meanwhile they would slip through the gates undetected. Obviously it was suicide, but they gave us kestrels and tons of missiles to play with, and tons of money to compensate. it was a pretty cool game, but drug running in that game is intense.

they also liked me because I had been collecting the shitty noob ships that people start off with, and had me go into dangerous places to move shipments from A to B, since no one would ever expect any thing high value on those ships, and they kept the drop-off zones in pirate free areas.

I was kinda bumming though, our guys made a big run to Jita and wanted me to be part of the convoy instead of just cannon fodder, and my account expired :( sad day.
