  • The problem is that new members might not bother with scoring if they think their vote doesn't really mean much. What do you think about just showing some extra stats though? Like in addition to the normal score, it has some extra lines like "45 Threadless Pros gave this a high score", "27 Alumnis gave this a high score", etc?

    Or, at least if Threadless made it clearer that they use this kind of info when choosing the designs, people would get the idea that setting up multiple accounts to give people zeros is a bit of a waste of time. Plus if they are identifying cheaters behind the scenes and not choosing their designs, as long as people know that all of this is happening it would be a pretty good incentive to not set up fake accounts.

  • Spork is so cool!

    I've only submitted one design so far, which was for the snowboards challange:

    Snowboarding Heaven - Avg score 2.66 with 194 scores - 30 fives - 57 ones.

    Pretty sure the large number of ones would be dodgy voters too. As far as ranking goes it's equal #25 (with two others) out of 301 designs - not too bad! Still don't know who the winner is though :S

  • Good point, and I like the idea of having weighted scoring, however that could also drive away new members, because if they submit straight away after opening their account their own vote and votes of friends and family would be worth less than others' votes.

    Maybe there could be an indicator of this in addition to the scores - something like "27 Threadless veterans gave this design a 5". Not sure if it should be something shown to the public or not though. It could also be an indicator of what's being unfairly scored by fake accounts, for example if a design scores an average of 2.41 and "veterans" gave it an average of 3.42.

    one thing that's really nice about letting multiple dummy accounts sign up and vote a whole bunch is that it's super easy for us to identify them. if we start doing fancy things to cut down on that, the downvoters and cheaters will come up with better tactics that will be harder for us to track and take into account when deciding what to print.

    This actually sounds good, like people who do it won't even realise that they have been caught out - it will just make it harder for them to get printed. It's nice to know that sneaky agents are working behind the scenes. Still, it would be nice to not have so many 1s.
