We have absolutely no intention of removing the "PETS" sort option from any ranked listings of users. You will still be able to easily view who has the most pets. What's more, any individuals who have the same pet score will use unique pets collected as the tiebreaker.
That said, lists will be automatically sorted by "SCORE" when they first load up -- the score will be shown in its own column, right next to "PETS".
Similarly, we are going to show pet score underneath user comments along with total pets (and we're even going to try to show it here on the forums under your username).
And as many of you have noticed, the pet level portion of your score was designed to be more of a tiebreaker. It essentially gives people at the very top of the site-wide list a way to differentiate themselves and work their way up (albeit slowly). In the end, leveling is hardly required to rank well. Heck, the original scoring mechanism only multiplied average pet level by 2.
