The Space Exploration Stack Exchange site is scheduled to graduate from Beta to a full site today, December 16th.
The moderator team would like to congratulate our entire user base for the contributions that made this graduation possible. The hard work and diligence in asking and answering questions thoroughly and respectfully has helped get us here. Specifically, graduation criteria has been based on the longevity of our site, the number of open questions, and the number of open questions that have at least one upvoted answer.
Anyone will have the option to self-nominate for new moderator elections, which may take place possibly as far out as 2023. Site customization, such as custom background and badge design isn't immediately planned but may be available in the future.
It has been very rewarding serving as pro tem mod, and I greatly look forward to the future of Space Exploration!
