Um, yes. For something that's going to be so visible to many users, a
wider-spread mention would be appreciated, and a poll running longer
than 48 hours at a weekend.

In terms of the artwork choice itself (SpaceFun), I've seen a lot of
comments along the lines of "looks like something even my kids would
reject for looking too childish". I wouldn't go quite that far myself,
but I can understand the sentiment. :-(

Please check again with a wider audience.
