What is this black magic.

How did I end up from the top of the HSC team to the bottom.

Would just like to recognise two members of our 2017 moderator team. They have decided it is time to move on and welcome the next generation of AN's leaders, but really want to recognise their contributions.

- isaacdelatorre was a HSC mod throughout 2017, who contributed a bunch of awesome guides to the Business and Economics sections of the forums, as well as essay marking, answering questions and fantastically friendly vibes. He'll still be around, and he is of course still our HSC Economics lecturer, but he is passing his role onto some fresh new faces for 2018. Thanks Isaac!

- zsteve, who has been on AN for years, contributed in essentially every VCE Maths/Science board. He's answered more questions than common sense and even held an incredible Q+A last year. He won the VIC MVP Award in 2016 for his efforts, and has decided that it is time for his legend to step aside so another can grow. Don't worry - He's still working with the AN Tutesmart Program ;D

In anticipation of expanding our HSC Moderator Team, we've had some section shuffles and additions ;D

- katie;rinos, in addition to keeping her Ancient/Extension History boards, will also be moderating the Music section ;D

- Jess1113 has shifted to moderate our Biology section, as well as some of our Maths boards!

- kiwiberry has shifted to Chemistry to assist MisterNeo (who is keeping his sections!), and will also keep assisting Rui in our Extension Maths boards ;D

We're really excited to expand this incredible team of 5 into a team of ... Well, let's just say a significantly larger team ;)

Hey everyone,

I felt it was important to address this myself as this decision is something that i've been considering for a few months now and i've finally managed to get the balls to do it.. so here goes.

As of a few weeks ago, I let the admins know that I intended on retiring as a national moderator in preparation for the new school year as my work is becoming extremely intense and I don't believe that I am able to continue with the same level of effort and activity as I once had. I believe that it is unfair for me to hold onto such an exclusive role where my activity is not consistent. This is my own personal belief and I have in the past, encouraged other mods who have been inactive to remove themselves from such roles... so you could say I am doing what I constantly rant on about. :) I also think that I'm starting to get a little bit too old for this.. and as I have no affiliation with AN's physical presence, it makes no sense for me to continue to hold onto this role.

Over the past two years I feel that I have contributed quite a significant amount to the operation of the community here, from rule changes to consistently issuing warnings in line with our forum rules, but more importantly, attempting to boost the VCE Technology/IT sections and raving on about VTAC preferences. I believe that my input has assisted in steering the users and team to be more organised and as a result, a better functioning online community which is well supported by the other AN initiatives such as lectures, the study guides, Tutesmart and more.

I joined as a member in 2012 and have been a moderator since early 2016. I started modding when I didn't have any sort of responsibility and was just another uni student going through the cycle. I am a teacher full-time now, which means I am responsible for hundreds of children in secondary school, and my sole focus must be on them. I am genuinely passionate about education and my career as a teacher, and I genuinely care about students who I teach. I absolutely love what I do.

I will continue to be a (somewhat) active presence on ATAR Notes, just not in a moderation capacity. I feel that this is best going forward to allow AN to continue to succeed well into the future.

I want to particularly thank brenden for initially allowing me the opportunity to become a moderator on ATAR Notes (without application, mind you). I managed to jump to national moderator in just a few months which was quite a unique and rare chance and I have embraced the role ever since.

To all the mods past and present, you each bring a unique attribute to ATAR Notes in terms of contribution and character, and this is what makes ATAR Notes great, a great leadership team which keeps the discussions flowing and provides different viewpoints which allows the team to consider all possible angles and perspectives.

AND to all users of our wonderful community!! ATAR Notes is a truly unique community where the support and genuine willingness to help somebody else in need is something that I have truly admired. Putting the competitiveness of the VCE/HSC system aside, nearly all questions asked are answered by somebody else, and this is truly a wonderful thing. So to all the users who create an account, ask a question, answer a question, write a guide or even just post in forum games, thank you for your contributions. You are ATAR Notes and I only hope that each of you continue to help somebody else in need.

I am actually quite upset that I've had to do this... when you're part of a community for so long, it's very difficult to make a decision like this but I feel it is necessary.

I will be moving to Honorary Moderator shortly. A new national moderator will be appointed in due course.. I have made my own recommendation but it is up to the admins who they decide on. I am sure whatever decision they make, it will be for the best moving forward :)

Thank you to everyone who has been so supportive and friendly to me over the past two years. You won't get rid of me entirely ... and i'm confident that I won't just be going AWOL.. I just need to be able to browse/post without the added responsibilities 8)

I'll still be available via PM if you would like to ask me a question regarding IT/Compsci/teaching... While my activity won't really be the same anymore, I will get an email everytime a PM is sent so rest assured if you take the time, i'll be taking the time to reply to you.
Adios. :)

P.S - Thanks admins for keeping it on the down low until I was ready.  8)

Aaron

Aaron, thank you so much for all you've done to keep this place clean and orderly and well-oiled; I don't think most recognise just how much basic mod work you've constantly done.  You've been more dedicated to your responsibilities than most and we've really appreciated it.  The double posts will now abound once more :(

It must have been hard to step down like this, would be upsetting to leave your role, but yeah, just thank you for all you've done.

All the best with your teaching this year!!!

I love you, AN. Keep being cool. <3

On a completely unrelated note:

Please congratulate and thank Aaron, our newest Honorary Moderator.

It seriously can't be emphasised enough how much time and effort Aaron has invested into these forums as both a poster and moderator - much of which isn't even visible for most members.

Thank you, Aaron - looking forward to your future contributions!
One wug.
