This is hillarious, but I'm sorry to say that there is no text in this derby, so it's going to get rejected.

Do you think it's possible to scrub the numbers and mabye make the "try again later" text looks like squiggly lines and still get the effect you are looking for? I maybe find a way to obscure the 8 enough to make it doable?

I thought incidental text was allowed? If not, bummer.

If i get rid of the text on the cube does it work? What about the 8?

Text on the cube for sure, and I'm sorry to say, probably the big ol' 8 as well. When I first saw this design I laughed both because it is one of the more unique designs this week and because--sorry, not trying to be mean here--it looked as if the thing was saying:

"TADA! I'm an 8, reject me!"

Again, sorry. It still is a cool concept though and if you can't find a way to make it work to your satisfaction here with slight adjustments, I'd like to no if you submit it for voting/buying some where else.

No, the 8 would still get you rejected. Any numbers, letters, or symbols count as text. I'd advise trying to find a way to rework it for this derby, wait until your 60-day hold has passed and try submitting somewhere else, or hold on to it and maybe it can fit in a future derby.
