'It might be nice to be able to browse prints by score but in the end a great print is a great print right? Also regardless of what a design scored it's unlikely that your tastes are going to be totally in line with the threadless voting public.'
Sure, my individual taste may not match, but on average the higher the score the more a visitor is likely to like the T-shirt right?
You have a few seconds to grab most first time visitor's attention - you want the first designs they look at to represent the best of the stock for sale. That is just internet shop design 101 no?
The very first thing I looked for was a 'top sales' or 'tops scorers' (in stock) button and was amazed that I had to look through the entire catalog.
I can understand that you might wish to hide current scores for designs that haven't gone to print yet so as not to prejudice the scoring process, but that logic doesn't hold for designs that are already in the catalog
Even if for technical or aesthetic reasons the site owners don't want to rank stock by score, they should still try to make it a bit easier for a casual browser to see the best stuff without having to go thru every design. Maybe a prominent ''greatest hits' or 'our favorites' button (filterable by stock and size) on the front page would be enough?
