These scored '5' for me

There's a household moratorium at my house on buying more threadless tees until I win something.


Given that, I feel a little disingenuous when I hit the '$' box.
I would buy it. Really I would.


Is a 5 weigh just as much as a $5?
Or does that Dollar sign 'turn it up to eleven', so to speak?


what do you think?
I still hit the $ box once in a while, and that means that I really want it. even though I can't have it.
Which makes me want it more.

I'd $5 this blog if it helped get a comment.

I $ something that I would buy if I had the money. There are some that I want more than others, sure, but if I had a $500 Threadless GC lying around, I'd probably buy most of the things I've $5'd.

Honestly I'm embarrassed to say that I hardly hit the $ box, just because I forget to. I would say that I only check it if I really want it, but I don't feel like I absolutely must buy it if it prints. Mainly because I'm poor like you :)

I hit the $ for stuff that, finances permitting, I would seriously love to own. A 5 or 4 without $ are designs I appreciate on an artistic or intellectual level but wouldn't wear for a variety of reasons ( color, placement, etc)

$ = i would prob. buy it if i have money when it is printed.

Well this one got a $ from me.
I'd want it, regardless of budget.

I've stopped $ing things since I know I don't have the money (or room) for more tees.

But I think it's valid to vote $ if you would buy it if you had the money/no limit on how many tees you can own.

Perhaps I'm in the minority, currently I have 40 designs that I $'d, I may not be able to afford them all should they print, but it's not the artist's fault that I am sometimes broke :)

mizuchaud

Out of the ones I've marked '$' since I started voting again, these I really do want.




Apparently there are some misclicks in my voting. There were a bunch of 1's and 2's that had $'s that I definitely did not hit. I think it was during the early days of powerscore...

mizuchaud

And your comments have helped me rethink my voting.

For me there's a fine line between the $ and a standard 5. Some designs are executed beautifully and the concept is well thought out and clever, but to get the $ it still has to appeal to my sense of style. Some designs are brilliant, but they just aren't something I would see myself wearing on a t-shirt. It's more subjective, but that's how I look at it.

This was really helpful, as it verbalized what I think I was already doing internally.

There's only two reasons why I hit the $.

1) I would buy the design.

2) I believe the design should be printed, regardless of whether or not I would buy it.

mizuchaud

I'd want this no matter what.

Thanks so much for the mention!

mizuchaud

You're welcome, Ivantobealone!
Practically no one reads this, it's almost a personal reminder for me to check to see how the ones I liked fared in scoring.

As you can see from the finished subs thumbnails, most of the ones I 5 don't do well.
(I think I'm going to calculate the average score for a mizuchaud 5 vote now...)

Ivantobealone
Ivantobealone profile pic Alumni

I do!
I'm sure that mine will score not so well, but I certainly appreciate that you enjoyed it :)

mizuchaud

hrmm. 2.78 average score for a mizuchaud 5 score.

I'd take that.

take more risks.

mizuchaud

Like this one?

That was a 5 for me a few months ago...
Loved it.

Maltzmania
Maltzmania profile pic Alumni

oh you!

that's not what i meant :P

mizuchaud

well, I'll try, but I guess I'm too much of a stickler to be handing out 5's helter skelter like.

I don't 0 anymore unless it really offends me.
It's just mostly 2's, a few 3's and 4's and once in a while, an awesome 5.
