It's a big day. You've been cleared for graduation by the Stack Exchange Community Team! Software Recommendations recently met our threshold for graduation-worthy sites and after a review, the Community Team determined that you're good to go. Reaching 'mature community' status is a big milestone, and you should be very proud.
What does this mean exactly? Graduation works in two phases. Starting today, you'll receive the following benefits
- You will soon have an election for community-voted moderators
- You will no longer see the "beta" label attached to your site's name
- You will become eligible for question migration paths with the rest of the network
- You will be able to select your own community ads
In the coming months, the site will receive a full design from one of our designers, which will be packaged with an increase in the amount of reputation needed to access each privilege. It's no secret that our backlog for site designs is long, and although you're looking at wait of several months, we wanted to give you the things we could give you now. There are also bound to be bugs as the new process gets rolled out so if you come across anything out of place, please report it on Meta Stack Exchange using the [graduating-sites] tag.
This site has reached this point because of your generous contributions. Together, you've created a valuable resource that helps people. Congratulations on all you've accomplished.
