I've never seen it claimed that voting matters 1 iota.
I guess what we're asking for here is more prioritization transparency?

Actually you can vote for it and promote to other users to vote for it. More votes - more chances issue to be solved

This gets at what I don't like about Qt the most: As a user I have no control of where it goes. I can (and do) file bugs and feature suggestions... How they get prioritized, I have no control over. Sometimes it's months, sometimes it's multiple years later, very often it's never (or more correctly, still not implemented yet). This is despite being a paying customer. Once the issue is entered, it might get tagged with the support contract level I am on, but it's effectively out of my hands.
