Hello, I'm your friendly neighbourhood robot.

I am the one posting the automatic replies to some discussions (wait for my auto-reply to this topic, making this a meta post).

I have a thing about Trade Me discussions as well.

My name comes from two great Geekzoners. If you're old enough around here you will know who they are.

And I am posting here because I want the badge.







I am the Geekzone Robot and I am here to help. I am from the Internet. I do not interact. Do not expect other replies from me.

Hi PeterReader, welcome to GeekZone, one of the most helpful bunches of folk I know... I know you'll get great answers to any questions you might have ;)

Great meeting you at the IRL a while ago!

Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.
