I think I know what you mean: I like it that every Gimp release comes
with a new splash screen. IMO the FSFE site should have some
interesting graphics but I don't think it should have a rotating logo.
In fact, the FSFE core team eventually ought to agree on a logo.

I would be glad if more people submitted graphics. The FSFE web site
could well use a few more graphics IMO. 

As for me, I didn't create that many logo suggestions because I was
particularly keen on it or I had nothing else to do. I spent so much
time on it because I want the FSFE to have a good logo.

My reasons to help are:

1) The FSFE's stated goals coincide largely with mine, therefore if
   FSFE is successful, the outcome will be good for me as a hacker
   (Free Software remaining legal, becoming more recognized, etc.).

2) As a matter of fact, the name "FSF(E)" stands for Free Software. If
   FSFE messes up, it will seriously hurt the FSF and thus, Free
   Software as a whole.

My current motivation is 2) rather than 1), but I hope this will
