    Little bit more specific please? The Force Net moved off site while it moved servers for the last 6 months its been transfered (everything from the past) here but after a few discussions it was decided that due to the lack of traffic in the Oceania region, we'd merge the Fan Forces to one forum. You can separate them, by hovering over the Oceania Title, and then move sideways and click on NZ, then you will only get all NZ Threads. But we were trying to encourage some interactions and conversation in the area down under.

    Wow, there doesn't seem to be many Kiwi's on these forums, well not any in this Oceania section anyway.

    There used to be about five or six, and they faded out, so we talked about closing the Kiwi forums, but they re-appeared and got really nasty (insulting even) but once it was decided to leave the forums, sadly they faded away again.....never got that.

    Well that's odd, so now there's only four of us? I'm only assuming the four people who commented on this thread are kiwis.

    Nasty? Insulting? I think not Adalia. We were threatened with closure before some of the Australian state forums (which had less activity than ours) were.... As we argued the boards were our main point of contact for the Kiwi FF and wasn't feasible for most of us to plan "get togethers" or other types of activities as most the regulars lived hundreds of kilometres apart. That was the main reason then mods at the time want our board shut down as I recall.

    I could find anything here that I would deem insulting; http://boards.theforce.net/threads/...o-give-you-time-to-arrange-an-event.28990259/

    Please don't paint all of us old regular Kiwis as being nasty or insulting..... Peace [face_peace]

    You never saw the PMs, that's all I will say, and WA, Qld and Tassie were closed off at that time ;). But as you say, peace, Oceania is pretty much dead these days. A few die hards, but no real meet ups or events any more. :(

    Ah-hah. Your point is well seen.... You're right, I didn't see the PM's. Never thought it actually got that bad. Oh well....[face_dunno]

    I guess the uptake of Friendbook and Facepage have seen a lot of people drift away....

    So old fossils like me will still be around for a while yet....

    My mum calls it FaceSpace! Makes my kids laugh.

    There are a few of us hanging about, we are the old die hards, but seeing as the entire Oceania is all in one together....we can interact with each other now. Making Oceania a bit smaller.....in posting respects ;)

    And the SAFF had a Xmas in July and are doing the Norwood Christmas Pageant...so one is still active! :D

    With all the talk of Episode VII doing the rounds and a great time back in NZ catching up with SFL I thought I'd start trying to be more regular in my posting here once again.

    It has been a while though.......

    Yeah will have to get a picture up, the board move must have messed up my pic. It was also calling me a Jedi Newbie or something, but that seems to have been updated at least!

    How's it all going everyone...it's strange the NZ boards are quiet, mind you we are very humble bunch hahaha

    Do we have many vintage figure collectors out there or fellow 'vintage-o-files'....well that's what I've been called in the past hahaha

    Finally! Another New Zealand fan! Welcome to the very few. The Vintage Collection? I have a few of the newer series, including Aayla Secura, Bossk, IG-88, Zuckuss, Dengar, Ben Quadinaros and a MagnaGuard. There's a few that I want but can't seem to find them anywhere in NZ, I really wanna get Kit Fisto, Boba Fett, 4-LOM, Admiral Ackbar and Republic Trooper. I mostly collect The Clone Wars figures anyway, which I got a whole lot of during my recent trip to Australia.

    Well you know what they say...."New Zealanders are easily startled but they'll soon return, in greater numbers too"

    I really like the newer figures that are on the vintage style cards because they look great along side their vintage counterparts....I've seen a lot of the figures your after in a few shops in Auckland.
