encourage notes for showdown lists
I just discovered showdowns, and think they're great.
But I think they'd be even better if people included the reason why they think a movie fits the category, or which specific part fits the category, or just reveals a bit more of the thought behind the list than a grid of movie posters.
Notes shouldn't be required, but a few things that would gently encourage them:
1) Following a link from the showdown page to a list should default to the list view, not the grid view. This way, notes are instantly visible to anyone who looks at a list.
2) Add the notes icon next to the number of films in the list, in the showdown window. So "[Username] 10 films [Note icon]"
3) Add a sort option, and introduce it as the default, for always putting lists with notes above non-noted lists, each section then being sorted by whatever secondary method is selected.
