I have no problem with a separate thread, but to me, website/fb/twitter and
Logo are tightly connected. If the logo changes (apart from stylish
changes) the main picture should also change.

So you can say we have 2 discussions in this thread. The general
layout/content of web/fb/twitter (menus, responsive design etc), and the
graphical layout (logo and pictures).

Dorte tried something like that, but did not like it. Feel free to play
around with it. The idea was to give the impression of a hand drawn owl
(which it really is) instead of a machine made perfect owl.

The IRC channel was a very fast decision. Not saying it was a bad decision,
it was not, but before promoting it, I would like  to hear more opinions.

I have no problem with having a IRC channel, provided someone is prepared
to hang in empty channel or non-responsive channel is for me not
a good sign.

Personally I use google hangout/skype/hipchat a lot more and do not have
IRC started 24/7. But that is just my view, how do the community feel ?
