However, I was looking at my favorite game that I want to get fully working on wine - "Company of Heroes (http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=application&iId=4506)". I can't understand why there isn't a global voting for this like all the other games. As it is, you can only vote on different versions of it. The combined votes of all the "versions" would be 41, which I think serves to highlight how much a game like this would be nice to get working proberly on wine. Instead its only sitting at a low 17.

Different versions of the same app might well have different problems. One version might be platinum, another garbage. If any developers actually want to use AppDB votes to decide what to work on next, they would need to know which version to target.
