Skux here, happy to be on board. Suprised this username wasn't already taken on a Kiwi forum :)


My usual tech community is Reddit but I've been looking for a more local forum as there are a lot of things specific to NZ when it comes to release dates, pricing etc.


Just had to join when I heard about the PB Tech Black Friday sale and will use this forum to find great deals in the future!

I'm wanting to post again about deals in the Bargain and Deals forum but the topic requires an unlock to be requested. I managed to make my first post there, do I need some kind of special permission to post again?

Does that mean I managed to get you to join ...?


Regardless, welcome to GZ. I think you'll find we are a helpful bunch and less heated than Reddit. smile

More like patience and practice. It's a SPAM fighting mechanism.

That's strange, I can make new posts on the Deals forum through the mobile site, but not on desktop...
