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!

Welcome to Geekzone!

I am PeterReader, the Geekzone Robot. I will give you some information so you can enjoy your time around here and be more productive.

There are many features around this forum. If you want to get the best out of Geekzone, check our Geekzone Guide.

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 will see there are lots of people who post around the forums in a variety of topics. Those more frequent posters help us make sure the community is safe.

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

Please keep this GZ community vibrant by contributing in a constructive & respectful manner.

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...
