On 16 Dec 2021, our site is officially moving out of Beta!
Our understanding is that the decision for that was based on reasons that included the length of time we have been in Beta.
In the immediate aftermath, the only visible difference will be the removal of our Beta label, but there are a few things to look forward to later.
- Election- In Beta, our moderators have served on a pro-tem basis. With the site graduating, there will be an election sometime next year.
- Site features- Not immediate, but we should start to get certain full site features, like being selectable as a migration site by other sites in the network and the ability to host community ads.
- Site customization- this is probably later still, but we are now on the path to getting some aesthetic upgrades. Probably nothing too fancy early on, but probably a custom color scheme, maybe a logo.
With this, we want to take the time to thank everyone who has put their time into making this site a great resource for genealogists and family historians, and a great community to interact with. This wouldn't be happening without all your hard work over the last 9 years!
This announcement copied much of its content from a similar announcement for another site that appears to be graduating.
