August 2020 MotM/ PotMs
« on: September 10, 2020, 03:00:43 pm »

Another month has passed in this unprecedented year and so that means we have our August MotM and PotMs to announce (albeit belated)! :D August saw coronavirus cases in Australia climb to their peak and then sharply plummet like the relevancy of an old internet meme. Something that hasn't changed is our wonderful online community here on ATARNotes (or AN) is still taking charging ever forward and helping each other through these tough times.

Viktoriak_ has been posting since May 2020 and what a great 4 months it's been! Despite only just getting started, Viktoriak_'s quickly become part of the furniture in the HSC Journey Journal board and you'll usually find them interacting with other NSW ANers too. In fact, their very first post was actually their very own HSC Journey Journal, which they've kept (relatively) updated since! They also been pretty active on the Forum Games and Casual Chat, where many of the most active and friendliest members of the AN community reside. It's no wonder we've picked such a staple as our NSW MotM for this past month!

We hope to see more from your HSC journey journal and can't wait to read some more posts from you in the future, Viktoriak_!

Homeworkisapotato was killing it in August, accumulating around 100 posts in that month alone! Many of their contributions have been scattered across the forum, not just helping, but asking questions in quite the array of areas: VCE Biology, Selective Schools Admissions, Victorian Technical Scores Discussion, VCE Journey Journals... just to list a few. Not only have they been posting everywhere, but they've also had some stellar posts like this, this and, more recently, this selective schools tips thread (although it narrowly missed August). It's without a doubt, homeworkisapotato deserves this award for their outstanding efforts in August.

Thanks so much for being such an amazing contributor, whether it's asking questions, commenting on other journals or being helpful around the forums, homeworkisapotato! Keep it up!

We'd also want to acknowledge the other outstanding contributions to the AN community through some top-notch posts! So, drum roll please, here are the...

- Literally Lauren's Comparing Texts Pairs Prompts post for VCE English
- Fluffysama's helpful music resources
- New ANer Stylahex with HSC SDD help (an often neglected area)
- 99+ ATAR student's reflection of VCE by Kenny Wang
- Bio exam study tips - several ANers
- Psych exam prep - several ANers
- Covid and uni thread - lots of ANers
- uni degrees help
- Funjirachi’s UCAT experiences thread
- gap years thread - various ANers
- VTAC Info and Questions (original post) and the second installment
- Keltingmeith's VCE 5th subject impact analysis thread (which hit the AN character limit it had to split into two posts!)

This is just a snippet of the terrific posts from August. If you think we've missed one, please post it below and we'll add them in! Thank you to everyone and congrats to the PotMs!

Please join us in congratulating our August MotMs and PotMs once again!

We know that the end of the year is fast approaching and this year has definitely not been the easiest, so we know what that means... more quality contributions from people like you! We can't wait to see what you all have to share with us for (the rest of) September! ;D

Well done to Victoriak_, homeworkisapotato, those recognised in the POTM section, and, indeed, everybody who has contributed in any way (including reading posts) over the last month.

These are really tricky times for many of us, and it's so heartening to see so many wonderful contributions. 💙
