Meet the ATAR Notes Leadership Team

ATARNotes' brilliant team of volunteer moderators has been specially picked to lead and support this community!  We're always here to help and support you, so don't hesitate to contact any of us with any issues or questions. :D

The hierarchy:

1. Administrators can create boards, appoint moderators, do everything moderators can, and more.

2. National moderators can moderate posts across the whole forum, warn/ban users, edit users' profiles, see emails and IP addresses, and more.

3. State moderators can moderate (edit, delete, split, merge or sticky) posts in the specific areas they've been picked for.

All moderators also have access to a secret section where we discuss all sorts of forum issues. 8)

AN's Leaders

Administrators 

brenden (Chief Operating Officer)

Slydev (Chief Technical Officer)

jamonwindeyer (Admin - NSW)
Introducing Jamon
I completed my HSC in 2014 and am currently studying Electrical Engineering at UNSW. I did an eclectic mix of subjects in my HSC, so I tend to do a little bit of everything on the forums. My goal is to make sure that everyone feels welcome, and to foster a supportive environment where anyone can ask any question, chat about anything that has them stressed out, or just chill out and take a break from the stress of study ;D
Joseph41 (Admin - VIC)
Introducing Joseph/Nick
Hello, friends. :)

My name IRL is Nick, so I thought Joseph41 would make the most logical username. I both joined AN and graduated from high school in 2012. I've since completed a Bachelor of Arts at Monash with Honours in Linguistics; my thesis considered the gendered media portrayal (linguistically) of Kevin Rudd an Julia Gillard throughout their respective Prime Ministerships.

My major passions in life - aside from AN, of course - are language, education, mental health, sport, travel, design and poetry. And coffee, which was a pretty nifty invention. Like, probably up there with the wheel. And I don't really need to consume wheels on a daily basis to live headache-free, so, thinking about it, one might actually contend that coffee is the niftiest invention of all time.

Please stick around on ATAR Notes, because it's such a fantastic community! :D
literally lauren (Admin - VIC)
Introducing Lauren
The English Goddess.  'Nuff said.

National Moderators 

Aaron (VIC)
Introducing Aaron
Hey there, my name's Aaron and I joined ATAR Notes back in 2012 (when I was completing my VCE!). I have gone through a significant amount of university study (5 years in total), having first completed a Bachelor's degree in IT and then a Master of Teaching (specialising in secondary maths/IT education). I have a special interest in digital technologies and STEM education, particularly 'coding in schools'. I see digital technologies as a priority for schools to invest in, and I'm continually disappointed with the lack of focus from quite a few schools. I am a qualified secondary teacher.

In the past, I have been a university tutor and lab demonstrator, coordinating and running tutorial classes and lab classes for students in 1st and 3rd year IT and Computer Science related degrees.

I am a no nonsense person, but fair in everything I do. If you would like to ask me any questions regarding computing, IT/CS courses at university or anything else that I might have knowledge in, please feel free to send me a PM. I'd be more than happy to try and respond to you. All the best with your studies!
elysepopplewell (NSW)
Introducing Elyse
I'm Elyse, I completed the HSC in 2015. I study a Bachelor of Communications (Journalism) at UTS now. My favourite subject has always been and will always be English! I also studied, and enjoy helping with, Studies of Religion, Legal Studies, French Beginners, and Modern History (the last is probably my weakest point right now). From the time I started on ATAR Notes, I knew that my favourite element of helping people was watching an essay or creative piece evolve from the first time someone reaches out for help, until they come back saying that they got a grade they couldn't have imagined. I love the process of writing and editing, as well as formulating ideas and sentences. Geeky? I know. But ATAR Notes is a really cool place for people to come together to bring different perspectives - and I really pride myself on trying to explain ideas in ways that teachers don't always have the time to do. I think everyone on ATAR Notes does, actually! :)
meltingkeith (VIC)
Introducing Euler/Meithy
I completed VCE back in 2013, and now I'm currently working towards entering research in chemistry. Back in VCE I despised the subject, mainly because instead of trying to understand what was happening, I simply spammed practice questions in the hope that I would do better, and got a score just above average. I've since learned better, and now try to promote the idea of understanding the material instead of simply just doing question after question. I also enjoy any excuse to use my banhammer, so watch out!
heids (VIC)
Introducing Heidi
I completed VCE, mostly online, in 2014, doing HHD, Bio, English, Texts&Traditions and Methods (I've since written guides and answered lots of questions on these subjects).  I'm passionate about making ATARNotes super supportive, helpful, friendly, compassionate and welcoming!  I love getting to know you and watching (and hopefully listening and helping) you conquer every stressful challenge school throws at you. :)
jakesilove (NSW)
Introducing Jake
I graduated from High School in 2014, and now study a combined degree of Law and Advanced Science (Physics) at UNSW. Bit of a weird degree, huh? I took 'follow your passion' quite literally, and I would highly recommend you do the same! I definitely didn't think about getting a job at the other end of this degree, and I don't think you should either.

I've been around the forums for about a year now, and I mainly help out with the Maths/Science/History subjects, with some English essay marking here or there (when absolutely necessary; I hate marking English essays as much as you hate writing them). My aim is to make sure any question, big or small, relevant or obscure, long or short, is answered with enough detail to make you feel comfortable about your understanding.

I'd also love to see the NSW forum grow as a community, where we can (all) destress, complain about exams, get to know each other and even use as a tool to help us get to where we want to get to in life. Online forums like this can be powerful, but are only as powerful as our users. So, keep asking questions!

Love you all xo
spectroscopy (VIC)
Introducing Spec
Hello guys I am spectroscopy and i started using atarnotes around 5 years ago, getting pretty active in 2012.
I finished VCE in 2014 and now doing Commerce at the University of Melbourne. I spend alot of time on atarnotes, reading more than posting, and I'm quite passionate and fond of the community that we've developed on here over the years.
in general im a pretty hands-off mod that likes to leave the forum ecosystem to naturally plod along without much intervention, mostly posting to give advice or in the chat threads. however if i see something that i think takes away from this place then i am not afraid to do something about it :P

Originally I became a moderator for psychology which is one of the less popular subjects on AN, but is ridiculously popular when compared to my favourite (and probably best) subject, history:revolutions.
Im also pretty well developed professionally having done alot of internships & working, and  ive been involved in the hiring of a few people including some professional roles, so people find more use for me with career advice than "how do i solve x". I also spent way too much time in VCE worrying about study scores, applying for SEAS and changing my subjects (i did 11 different VCE subjects! not to completion of course :P )
PM me if you need any help with things like picking uni courses, job help, general advice, and that sort of thing. i would really love someone to ask revs questions about something other than the french revolution, but i think that will stay a dream..
I also got a 40 for further and english & tutored a little bit,  and have done some economics at uni + vce so you can ask me about those too !
otherwise keep doing ur thing on the forums, ill be watching  ;D
vox nihili (VIC)
Introducing vox/Trav
Hi there!

I'm vox and you can normally find me cruising around the Biology board. I initially started of as a moderator on the science boards and slowly made my way here :))

irl I'm a Med student at Melbourne. Before that I did Biomed at Melbourne, with a major in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology. And before that, I finished high school in 2012 studying Biology, Chemistry, English Language, French, Methods and Psychology.

Education is a really big passion of mine. I've spent quite a lot of time working in schools the past through years, mainly as a public speaking and debating coach, but have also been really lucky to be involved in a couple of volunteering programmes for students from disadvantaged backgrounds, namely SWOT and VCESS. You should really get involved (as a tutor or a student!).
I also really enjoy learning languages. I did French at high school and Spanish at Uni (which was awesome fun). I'm planning on starting a new language really soon now that I've settled into med school a bit.

My inbox is always open :D

You are not special. You're not a beautiful and unique snowflake. You're the same decaying organic matter as everything else. We're all part of the same compost heap.

Near the end of every year, there's an announcement for applications so you'll have to submit that. In other cases you may be approached by the admins with an offer to become a moderator as well.
