I thought about how the ? sign resambles to an hook. Next step was to draw a reversed hook that help another to get out of the mud. Then the mud became a sea to match Blender logo's color palette.
It looked not so bad till I realized that "the thing" in the middle (believe me or not but it's just a man with a fishing rod...damn waves) catches too much ...
Alright, here is the one gandalf3, TARDIS Maker, cegeaton and I worked on:

For those of you who don't watch movies this is closely based of the final scene of Raiders of the Lost Ark.
The idea is centered around what our site is, an organized collaborative collection of useful blender information. A ...
Blender.SE helps you to understand Blender3d in depth, not only face value. It is an original site with a special texture and color. When posting make the object clear so you don't drive the community off the edge. If you don't make your point the site will eventually be rendered useless and be driven off the SE grid.

My main suggestion is to share the site wherever and whenever you can,

SE doesn't make specifically branded banners or such until a site graduates and gets its own theme. Right now we'll have too make our own banners/ads.
You can find StackExchange's logo in a higher resolution here. Just be sure to follow their guidelines outlined here.
You can also find useful pieces of elevator pitch and such to describe the site on the ...
Sorry to be the grump here but this isn't going to happen. Code golf was intended to be used like that, we have a stricter scope and I don't think contests should mingle with serious questions on the main site much less introducing new tags for these, as for helping the answer ratio, these would just be superfluous and in poor taste.
