I am not a professional and famous visual designer but I do think the logo here seems undeveloped, dull, boring per the site's spirit. I mean, besides the term "WordPress" it seems to me unrelated to the Wordpress community..
This is actually intentional. When we got the first revision of our current design, it was spelt Wordpress and followed the Automattic Calypso colours of WordPress.com
As an Automattician I can say the likelihood of us getting permission for the trademark is low. Also remember that some stacks are exceptions. For example, https://askubuntu.com/ is not just an Ubuntu Stack, but an official site in collaboration with Canonical.
I would want the logo and/or logo header to be more sophisticated, more sketchy, and maybe also more colorful. We could take example from the minimalist design of GraphicDesign SE.
We welcome all ideas, but the logos we've been handed by the SE design team so far haven't cut the mustard. We decided to drop the logo in favour of just the words after a large number of feedback rounds, as well as correcting the colours.
I think the whole logo and logo-header, should have a serious revision by the professional visual designers of the SE team.
It did, that's how we got the current design. The previous one had maroon printing presses and was a bit arcane
