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.

more productive.

People around here can be funny. When reading a comment don't take it personally as everyone here knows we should

 

 

always attack arguments not the people behind them. But if you see some sarcastic jokes, it happens. With time you

help us make sure the community is safe.

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.
