    Re: ATAR Notes vs Bored of Studies

    Atar notes has a better question answering service compared to bos. BOS is more of a non-school related + 4 unit forum with tips for each subject whereas ATAR notes is a study guide

    that is replicated on both sites, that is expected. the mention on BoS is prohibited on AN as well.

    in terms of your question thread, certainly the last 2 years (2015/2016), AN has probably more help for questions answered, as a large number of members here are older in years; however this year there seems to be more activity, it depends from year to year.

    I would say the benefit of AN is yes mainly their study guides, which they sell. BoS doesn't have such front, and certainly nowadays tends to have less paid services.

    better question answering service? Have you seen how dead the NSW sections are? If by better you mean answering the 1 question asked per day, then sure.

    iirc 2015 was a pilot program yr in testing how successful they would be and 2016 was they started implementing it (i think)

    yea they pay their mods to run the site...as opposed to here....

    if u look at the english, science and esp humanities section of this forum, sometimes questions are left out and sometimes delayed. at AN you wouldnt really have this happening

    Yes, some questions are left out because people either are asking for unreasonable things (i.e. tell me what technique is in this text, or solve my homework) or others just don't know the answer. You can't expect every question to be answered, especially the unreasonable questions.

    Of course you wouldn't have that at AN because it's not hard to respond to the 1 new topic made per day for the entire NSW forum, in the attempt to make it appear a lot of people are active.

    Funny because he did his HSC in 2014 and BoS was certainly around. It doesn't take much to find out about BoS so either he was completely oblivious or he is completely dishonest.

    It's interesting because I essentially felt the same way about BoS at one point. As Ive said many times in this thread, BoS is a user driven website and it would be nice to see this level of passion return amongst the userbase.

    You can learn more from getting different perspectives on a matter. Having an article might give the impression that this is the only answer to the question, when in reality, there may be other correct answers. Each person's situation differs, each question has a different context. Also, if there is just one thread to answer questions relating to an article, chances are questions won't be answered in as great a detail than if they were separate threads. A question can get lost 2-3 pages deep into a discussion and other questions might dominate the thread, so your question might not get much attention.

    ATAR Notes Thread IMPORTANT NOTICE !!!

    The moderating team has received reports that users who also have an account on AN, have been harassed over PM.
    This thread will remain open, but has been moderated.

    The BoS mod team welcomes any feedback and this thread will remain open for now. However this is not the place to vent frustrations or complaints against BoS and I'll even say as a matter of integrity, other competitor websites as well.

    If you have an issue/feedback or something to report, please contact any of the mod team, preferrably posting in
    http://community.boredofstudies.org/...dback-support/
    or
    http://community.boredofstudies.org/...ct-moderators/

    Concerns about AN should be raised respectfully here or taken directly to the mod team at the above links as well, as recent discussions appear to become a little bit out of hand.

    PLEASE NOTE (EDIT 5/4/17):
    As much as we would like people to use BoS, there are to be no comments or harassment based on a user's activity/non-activity here on BoS or whether they have an account on AN/or use AN or any other rival website.

    There is a need to recognise every user has the freedom to use whatever HSC forum/discussion group they please.

    Promotion of rival services is still not allowed. However, if you wish to discuss AN, you are welcome to here. However, please prevent "venting" or "flaming" (including passive aggression) as this is not helpful for discussion.

    Thread will remain open, however moderators may decide to close/lock this thread if discussion gets out of hand in the future.

    Thanks
    dan.

    Re: Comments on ATAR Notes Thread.

    What the hell, the image got moved here??? What happened and why did it get moved

    BTW if anyone was interested in that photo I posted, the photo was on the day ATAR notes got the most users ever and one of the Vic Mods came here, compared us to them and started showing off on how they had way more users that we did on that day
