Awesome design but I'm not crazy about the placement. Would give it $5 if the design was centered on the shirt.

If you mean "shit" as in "designer whining about people who give him insulting and inappropriate scores because he doesn't conform to some stupid moronic style [to paraphrase from your own post] yet he still desperately wants to be printed by Threadless and that means he probably shouldn't insult the people he just insulted" then yeah, I guess I really don't understand. shrugs
After reading through all the comments on this post, I can see what you're getting at regarding the scoring system, and yes, I completely agree that Threadless could improve the system so it's "fair" for all designers.
However, the tone of your original post, and many of your replies to comments here, still make you appear like a sad little whiner. You won't go very far in business if you denounce your potential customers as idiots without taste and style.
If your ultimate goal, as stated, is "getting printed without conforming to some stupid moronic style" then maybe you should bribe Threadless staff to print you, and leave the voters out of it altogther.

Bananaphone, your sense of entitlement is mind-boggling. Clearly nobody's work is as good as yours (seeing as you just said practically nobody would get an "I'd buy it" score from you)! For all your talk about "superior designs" and "nobody appreciates my mad design skillz and misunderstood style wahhhh" you come off as incredibly pretentious.
For me, when I'm voting on something I would WANT TO WEAR IN PUBLIC, I couldn't care less how much thought went into your design, how talented you are, how many years you went to art school, how many other submissions you've made, or that one of your designs got printed and sold like hotcakes. If it doesn't appeal to me as something I'd want to wear, then it doesn't get a high score. Simple as that. I don't check a designer's bio (or frankly, even their name, because I don't "follow" any particular designers here) before I vote. I vote on what I see.
I can't speak for all the people who gave your designs a zero, but just so you understand, some of us actually DO put some thought into our scores. We're not all idiots. We're just people with different tastes.
