Here at Wordpress.SE, while not as plain as the beta sites, we don't have a whole lot of branding.
Knowing how easily I am attracted to the SE sites that have a great brand around them, I'm wondering whether applying some creativity here might help us attract some new users and up the level of quality SE sites foster in both questions and answers.
What do you think of proposing/requesting a redesign? If the community agrees, what is the process for doing this with SE?
I know you we'd have to apply a decent amount of creativity when we're about code rather than a physical object. But there are certainly ways we could allude to easily recognisable WordPress concepts (such as the loop, or common template tags like the_content()) in a stylish background image.
I'm also aware we probably can't use the WordPress logo - or maybe we can, given we must've had to get permission to use WordPress in our domain name?
Either way, I'd love to know what people think of our current branding and whether doing something more would help build the community.
