Would it be OK to drop the "THE" or "DER" from the logo.

Hello Davoid.

the "Der" which means "the" in german has to stay as a part of the logo.

Hello! Here are some hints for getting the most out of your contest:

~~ Rank designs daily -- this will encourage more participation.
~~ Ranking designs daily will also keep your contest from getting cluttered.
~~ The more feedback you provide, the better results you are going to see.
~~ Designers are not offended by "Not Interested"
~~ Over-use of "Not Interested" discourages participation.
~~ Ranking is a non-monitary means of showing apprecaition for designers hard work.
~~ Designers earn points for ranked designs. We like to earn points.

we like modern and simple logos. So try to avoid too much different elements within the logo.
