Upcoming Thursday the 16th of December we will lose our Beta label, and Arts & Crafts will enter its 'mature' stage! So ..
This means, among other things, that we will join the list of 'Launched' website on Area51, the Site Stats on the main page will disappear from the right sidebar, we'll get a custom look down the road, and we'll get new moderator elections, likely early next year.
The announcement on Meta can be found here.
Taken from that post in response to a comment, the following are the new requirements which were also used to determine our status change:
For the sites that are leaving Beta today, the following criteria were determined:
- The site needed to be in public Beta for at least six months
- The site needed to have at least 1000 open questions
- At least 70% of the questions on the site needed to have at least one upvoted answer
