Yeah I know, you probably say, ‘It’s going to be the same as the previous version’. Well, these kind of things are dynamic, meaning they changes with time. Right now, the current timeline is probably outdated, since many things had taken place since then.
So, here is it again, the timeline summary of the trolls during high school.
Once again, the concepts are the same: The trolls’ moves are categorized into trolls campaigns. New ones start when they found out some secrets about the girl I may potentially like, even though it may not end up true, and ends when they launch the new campaign, the girl the trolls was talking about leaves STA, or being forcefully ended by the trolls.
So, here’s the timeline, from past to present…
Early high school trolls: Late 2008 to mid 2009
The first form of trolls was met back when I first started high school. Actually, back then there were no fixed groups of trolls, and no fixed campaigns, and back then they did not use the subject of me liking a girl. Instead their methods tend to be more physical-based, which is quite scary. This is the start of a very long series of battles with the trolls.
First trolls campaign: Late 2009 to mid 2010
The first few months at STA was very good, and people has helped me getting started with the new environment. The first trolls campaign appeared around October/November of 2009. Again, there were still no fixed group, but they started using the subject of me liking a girl to annoy me. This became the bases for the subsequent trolls campaigns, up to today. It ended along the end of year 8 in mid 2010.
Second trolls campaign: Mid 2010 to April 5th, 2012
This is the longest-lived trolls campaign, and probably the worst, lasting for almost two years. The first few days and weeks of year 9 was alright, there were a lot of new students. However, the trolls managed to exploit this and started the second trolls campaign. This time, they used one of the new girl, which sadly is my ex-friend in year 7. Initially it wasn’t too bad, however it became a little bit more annoying starting January 2011. However, the campaign did not end with the end of year 9, but instead continues into year 10.
The year 10 period is the worst. Initially it was as annoying as the year 9 period, but after the year 10 residential trip, things began to worsen. At this point, the trolls had united together to form the trolls army, and they started annoying me on Facebook. The worst point was probably the Valentines Day chocolate gift charity, organized by older students. And, worst of all, on Valentines Day, one of my wall post which read ‘Happy Valentines Day’, there were over 100 comments! Past that oint, the situation did not improve that much, until the girl the trolls was talking about leaves STA, marking the end of the second trolls campaign.
Third trolls campaign: May 23rd, 2012 to August 30th, 2012
After the second trolls campaign ends, there were four weeks where no trolls campaigns were in effect. However, things began to change on the night of May 22nd, after I wrote ‘Hi.’ on one of the new student’s wall. Then, the next day, the third trolls campaign finally came into effect, and surprisingly, it spreads extremely fast. The end of year exams the following week has helped to keep the trolls quiet, but after the exams, the trolls resumed their attack, threatening to launch the troll war on June 8th, which did not materialized. However, the campaign was ended by the new trolls campaign, along with the arrival of year 11.
Fourth trolls campaign: August 30th, 2012 to September 11th, 2012
This is the shortest-lived trolls campaign yet, lasting less than a month. This time, the girl the trolls used was based on groundless rumor created by one year 11 student. Its short duration makes it not as bad as the third and the second one, but worse than the first one. It was ended by a new trolls campaign, once again.
Fifth trolls campaign: September 11th, 2012 to now
The fifth trolls campaign was probably not the worst, but a bit worse than the third trolls campaign. It spreads fast too. I did saw instances where the trolls threatened to annoy me massively, particularly during Chemistry, but they did not materialized. I can say this was the only trolls campaign where there were times where little to no annoyances had occurred. However the trolls did tried to end the fifth trolls campaign, with their first attempt on September 28th, 2012, but failed. However things changed drastically on December 7th, 2012 when they resumed their attempt to end the fifth trolls campaign. Surprisingly, they were nearly successful, but luckily things began to change during the last two days of term 1. Now, after the Christmas holiday, the situation suddenly returned to the state before December 7th, 2012. Also new in this trolls campaign is that the trolls started using this blog as another tool to annoy me. This basically gave birth to networks of spies, that constantly reads this blog for any content that could be used to annoy me.
As of today, I can say the situation is quite favorable. But, down the road was Valentines Day, once again. If another Valentines gift charity will be organized, there is a possibility that the trolls will use that to resume their attempt to end the fifth trolls campaign, and who knows, this time they might be successful, and that is what I’m really scared of. But if that was the case, I will fight to the very last minute. I’m not going to let this fifth trolls campaign end easily.
That’s it for now…
