what are the broader implications of questions being repeatedly close voted with 5 close votes for being "unclear what you are asking" years after the question was answered and the answer was accepted?
I remember one time (I remember posting it in chat, can't find it), where someone asked something on the lines of "why my system doesn't start" and the answer was a wild guess "restart your system" which was accepted. Well, I could have answered that he needs to get a new system, or reinstall Ubuntu, or whatever and I wouldn't be wrong. There would be no "wrong" answers, because the question is too generic that anything and everything that may or may not fix the problem. The question has been deleted since.
It becomes everyone guess what the problem to solve is and therefore what solution to apply. Remember, questions are like a puzzle:
Unclear what you're asking
Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard
to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help
clarifying this question.
If you don't clearly explain what you're trying to achieve overall,
answerers can't figure out what an appropriate answer would be without
additional information. e.g. "How should I put these 4 pieces
Without enough context to know how to assemble it correctly, we don't know what the correct answer would be, and what is a helpful answer or not.
That's what is happening with that question: the user says it needs help installing a piece of software (title guess), then says that he's following a guide to install it (first paragraph), talks about a random FTP server (is that even relevant?), then says that he can't find the executable (well, everything installed in wine is on .wine directory, but I don't think that's the problem), then it tell us that apparently he found how to "execute" the game and runs into a problem... what the problem is, take your pick: you could say that he wants to start the game in off line mode, or that his credentials are not accepted, or that when he inputs his credentials it freeze, or whatever. Then he told us why he's asking here, without any guidance on what we accept here: clear, factual and reasonably scoped questions about using Ubuntu.
Now, why I specifically voted as unclear? Because I followed the guide and was able to start the game, in off line mode, without a hitch. Granted, I'm using Debian testing 64-bits, Wine 1.8.1-1 from the repositories, Intel graphics card and crappy internet. So, what's different from OP's system apart of Ubuntu and a newer version of Wine that can cause problems? I can't tell. So, edit the question so it becomes plainly obvious what the problem is and remove irrelevant information. If that means you have to rewrite the question from scratch, so be it.
