New Scoring System??

Is threadless going to launch a NEW and improved scoring system (stocking up on Tylenol to cure future headaches) ??
There have been very few designs approved lately and I currently have nothing left to score which makes me wonder if a new scoring system is about to be launch....

Honestly though, I'm scared. Now I have to try harder. And read more "why'd I get rejected" blogs.

maybe it's related with these error stuff. just a thought. XD

No, for real. What is the point of the voting system? Do the powers that be actually use those numbers? What percentage of highs and lows are thrown out assuming they were cast by Ned Flanders and Mr. Burns, respectively...

Give us back our skinny stats! It will show you that in many designs (not only with mine), the amount of 1s equals the amount of 2s + 3s + 4s

why don't threadless make the scoring system to be addition so there will no be downvotes.. like if i give you 1 it will give your entry +1 and the rest will follow +2+3+4+5.

Same difference if in the end the number is divided by the total number of votes cast. What about the MEH designs. There are some that are done well, but I don't like the subject, so then I don't vote for it either way... How do those count?

You MUST ALWAYS vote MEH designs as MEH otherwise the MEH designs WILL SCORE HIGHLY! MEH lol

But if I am not into something that everyone else is into, why should I down vote it? I try to vote considering skill, execution, and/or concept. If any of these three tiers is uber weak, I will down vote, but I won't up vote if the subject is MEH. Maybe a clearer description of what the votes are saying? 5 - I would pay money for it 4 - I wouldn't buy it, but I like it 3 - I don't know how I feel (MEH) 2 - Needs work 1 - WTF! SRLSY?

I wonder if they will require users to have previously purchased an item from threadless in order to vote. Would kill all the fake accounts. :)

I wouldn't be able to vote then. Too poor.

The current system seems pretty good, in my opinion.

Downvoting kind of just takes care of itself since they tend to downvote every sub that's up.

@benjamin, what I mean is if you think a design is WTF looking (I like your proposed system btw lol), then you should vote it that way. If no one votes for a crappy design, it will have one vote (which will be by the artist) and that vote will most likely be a 5.

I feel bad too when I have to downvote. I give higher scores to those that have bad looking designs but look like they really tried. Shhh, don't tell anyone though.

or just maybe put settings where you can see the records of all the voters that you had.

benjaminleebates

Bleeding hearts unite! jk Yeah I get what you are saying, but I have a hard time judging effort... It's the teacher in me. My weakness for downvoting is stock images and over use of filters, shh, secret.

new scoring system update: if you score a design a 1 then your account is automatically deleted.

it's like one of those "do not push button" buttons that has awesome consequences!

Cool, then if you score someone a five does your newest shirt automatically get printed?

I read on wikileaks that new scoring system is like this

7 - "Hey neato design, I'll tattoo that on my lower back" 5.5. - "This shirt is awful. Would only wear for ironic purposes" 0 - "Would buy this shirt"

Its all based on a special logarithm that Jeff created while soul-searching in the Tibetan peaks with a bunch of monks. No word on whether or not he found his soul.

Should show the rating or opinion given by the judges of threadless in each design. 2 score, of people and staff :) I think that would to improve.

How about if they vote a low score they are required to put why they gave that vote and it has to have a certain character limit to post the comment for example someone votes a 1 and the have to type out like 140 characters or so in order to have their vote counted. If it's a valid response it get's approved by staff? Might be a lengthy process but I guess that would cut down the people who just vote 1s for no reason.

Just as a fun thing, i'd love to have my own text tags alongside the numbers. Make em editable per account as opposed to 'meh' etc?

:P
