Thanks for the first three entries.

I want to underline again; think simple and design simple please.

These are rivals' logos:

http://www.xing.com/
http://www.linkedin.com/

Try to avoid shading, raising and black if it is possible.

Please don't use slogan in designs.

o,b,c and s are also widen chars, do they need being bold?

Regards,

#4 Chars are perfect. Need to get rid of black area and the symbol should be more simpler and smaller and may be used in first "o" like #10. Gold is ok. Turquaz-Red combination doesn't seem well.

#23 Could you thin the chars a little and remove the slogan and the symbol? Instead of symbol working on first "o" could be better.

#10 and #4
Characters (obc) are well but not "s".
First symbol (#10) is close but not finished and it is big.
#23
loved "s" Character, and all chars give the effect of abacus, symbol is bad.

So what I came is:
main color: blue #28
chars: #10 o,b, and c - #23 s

Didn't like anything else by the looks of it. No wonder why you've only got 79 entries with 2 hours to go.

Be quiet. I don't care how many entries it takes and I don't have to like your designs.

gokufab, 83 through 86 are all totally ripped off from my customized characters.

I customized the "cos" originally, and you have blatantly ripped them off. pretty weak dude.

Hey dude, you ripped my "c" and "s" and the way the "c" joins the "o" and the "o" joins the "s". What should I say?

Also before talking look at the comment of the CH of the February the 11th, and look how my original "cos" and the overall font style were.. Thanks!
