Not really my call even if I wanted to. Only Andrew Lee can make such changes.
I suspect that Andrew will point out that the private entries are visible on the https://www.portablefreeware.com/options.php page under the Results Type: Private Only option, which is available for logged-in users.
As you're the developer of AutoRun LWMenu, I understand that you'd want to get that added, but for the WinNMP entry, we might need to get with the developer to simplify the setup process.
I didn't have strong feelings one way or the other, only that it's a fairly old program that may not work with newer email systems or Windows 10.
If we display private entries searchable by title, I am willing to bet that some unscrupulous people will start make common search keywords the titles of their private entries.Maybe consider making private entries at least searchable. If you think it creates a loophole, then at least consider making them searchable by title only.
If the name of the program is "Foobar", and someone deliberately looks for "Foobar", then you'll be able to display it. Maybe add a "this is a private entry - if you found it useful, could you click here to vote to make it public?" message.
Well, I can testify it works perfectly over Gmail and Outlook.com in Windows 10.
Then I think we should think together about another way as the alternative of not accepting donated entries is just as problematic too.
We already have one, which is to post it to the submission forum and see if the members here are interested enough to upvote it. It works just like open source! interested developers will pick up the source code if there is interest.Then I think we should think together about another way as the alternative of not accepting donated entries is just as problematic too.
It's true that writing up an entry takes time and effort, and that it's frustrating when something you think is excellent doesn't get the votes. I've had entries I built that never went live but the community has had a remarkably good record of picking good software. It's one of the reasons we are still popular after all these years. And even tools that don't go live are of course detailed in the forums, where they still get a lot of attention.
