@vmars316

On the left-hand side of each DB entry, there is a clickable "Edit this entry" button, right under "This App rocks!" and "This App sucks!" buttons.

A brief preamble is displayed upon entering the Entry editor:
  • Edit entry
    As far as possible, members should adhere to the following guidelines when updating existing entries:

    Members should test new versions for portability before posting an update, unless it's a very minor update
    and you have good reasons to believe that portability is not affected.

    Beta releases should be posted to the Portable Freeware Update forum to avoid clogging up the mainline RSS feed with frequent beta updates.
    Exceptions, however, can be made for apps that have not been updated in years, but has a new stable beta.
For each Required or Optional editable field, there is a terse guidance as to what should preferably go in there.

Of course, one must be logged in for all this to work.
