I agree with @billon and @smaragdus that a forum topic submission should be a requirement for database entry. :!:
I agree it's a great idea too! I will get it done ASAP.

[EDIT] OK, I have implemented the change, and updated the new user FAQ to reflect this new rule.

Like it's presently the case with comments, how about deleting only those entries flagged by two or more users? Is this even doable and would it accomplish the desired result? :?

@webfork: shouldn't the current topic be in "Suggestions/Discussions"? :mrgreen:

I think it is quite feasible to use the current scoring system such that if the score is <= -5 (negative 5), we will flag the entry for deletion. So 1 thumbs-down from a R5 user and the entry will be gone. Of course, we could also raise the bar higher (or lower, depending on which way you look at it) if we think we should require at least 2 users to effect the removal.

Some of the links for the private entries are messed up. Function Generator Lite had download links pointing to CloseAll now but was to Wizfil or such. Several entries are listed for DuckDuckGo with the homepage and download links pointing to DuckDuckGO and the screenshots are for other programs.

Could you provide more specifics?

I searched for "Function Generator Lite" and there is only one entry added by Mixture. The download links for that entry are blank. Website points to "www.marchandelec.com/fg.html" though.

Searched for "DuckDuckGo". There are 4 private entries, all created by webfork. They all have unique IDs though, and I don't see any data corruption here.
