This is just in, Freelancing is graduating Stack Exchange to become an official fully grown site.
Congratulations to all of you! :D
- No more beta label
- Official announcement
We are planning for sites that are leaving Beta to lose that label on December 16th. We will be announcing this on Meta Stack Exchange. It will be similar to this post that we made in 2019 when a number of sites exited Beta at that time.
- There will be some customization in the future, but not by the graduation date
- Reputation points will remain
Currently, site design customization will not be part of the graduation process. We’re hoping that some lightweight customization for sites will be available in the future, but we don’t have a timeline for that right now. You will also retain your beta reputation levels.
- New elections by 2022/2023
Since we have a large number of sites leaving Beta, we will be scheduling these elections throughout 2022 and possibly even into 2023. We’ll be in touch with your team in the future when we are ready to schedule your graduation election.
And here's why we're graduating :D
We have been reviewing all of the sites that are currently in Beta to determine which sites are ready to lose that label and join other graduated sites on the Stack Exchange Network. Based on the longevity of your site, the number of open questions, and the number of open questions that have at least one upvoted answer, Freelancing Stack Exchange is ready to leave Beta.
