I agree with your idea, though not your solution. I will tell you why. I have been a user of this forum for many years, and, until you just told me, I had no idea that the LM logo was a link of any sort, so I think it would have to be more obvious than that to cater for dummies like me
But yes, a link from the forum page direct to linuxmint.com is a useful idea
