PR Update Again

Whats an unreasonable amount of programs on a download site for an author?

I did a keep clean up job a few months back and deleted authors who had lots of programs on softtester. I can’t remember the figure I deleted from. However I’ve noticed a lot of credit site listings etc again. So I plan to limit the amount of programs an author can have on one […]

My first C# program
