           Summary: AppDB front page doesn't handle obsolete versions of
                    online games
           Product: WineHQ Apps Database
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: website-bugs
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: winehq-bugzilla at bleeter.id.au

The AppDB front page shows a version of WoW that is obsolete as a Gold rating.
I believe this is because the page is generated via the number of votes users
place against an app, and doesn't take into account whether the version is no
longer live.

This is a self-feeding issue, as people will come to the page and place votes
against the version they see (people are lazy), not what they actually use -
thus further feeding it's high-vote count and leaving it on the front page.
