comment What can I use an old tent for?
I don't think pitching it somewhere fixed might be a good idea. Tents (especially plastic ones) have a rather limited lifetime concerning (prolonged) exposure to the elements. If you pitch it somewhere and leave it to sun, wind, rain and snow, it will degrade rather fast. In addition, animals might use it as a home and I guess it won't take too long that you don't want to visit it anymore. Then it will be some old plastic crap in the landscape that pollutes nature and bothers other people.

comment Is it dangerous to sleep in a tent alone in a forest in -20?
The tips themselves aren't bad, although they don't fit the question quite well. Your text basically covers some things to consider to not die out there. The OP planned to more or less live in the forest at low temperatures for a whole winter, so they might require a bit more comfort as "barely slept due to the cold but survived" is not a good option to survive for more than some days.
