Reminder: How to post NZ games!

Hey dudes,

In case you don't dip into the site news and feedback forum very often, last week I posted a nifty utility I made that should make posting NZ game threads way easier.

Here's the direct link: http://elihodapp.com/thread-o-matic/

Feed it an iTunes link, it'll generate all the content for a NZ early game release thread. As far as where to find the NZ game releases if you're up at around 6:00 AM US time in the morning, the easiest way is to keep an eye on this RSS feed- http://itunes.apple.com/nz/rss/newapplications/limit=100/xml

Stuff will start popping up in the morning, paste the NZ iTunes link into the utility I made, copy and paste the stuff over, and blammo. Feel free to post threads for anything that looks cool.

Tested the thread-o-matic 5000 and it works like a charm, thanks.

This thread-o-matic is causing screenshots to be cut off slightly on the right side on iPhone.

Edit: Only this posters like killercow since his posts are shifted to right

Ok, so after I generate the info, how do I get all of that to transfer over into the professional looking threads Eli makes?

Without wishing to sound ungrateful, it'd be great if people can remove all this from the post once the game is out worldwide and the appinfo is working.
