As seen in this post, Design-Independent Graduation is on for early September!, there are 2 phrases after a site has graduated:

Phase 1

The Community Team announces that a site is cleared for graduation. Without delay...

  • the beta label is removed
  • elections are held
  • migration paths are set up
  • community ads are run

Phase 2

Then, as it becomes available:

  • the site gets their custom design.
  • privilege thresholds are increased to graduated site levels

However, how long would Phase 2 occur after the site has graduated; how long would it take for a site to get its own unique design and increased privileges threshold after it has launched?

Is there a post that lists the timing between Phase 1 and Phase 2 for past graduated sites?

14

This is an incomplete list, made community wiki in case anyone wishes to add to it. The sites are sorted by graduation date.

Sources:

  • Graduation Dates: Timeline of SE sites, which gets the dates directly through the SE API
  • Design Dates: Site's Meta for announcements of new designs.

The duration confirms that "it varies". The sites with '?' are still waiting for their design.

    Hmm, @TuxCrafting on PPCG says they're getting a design in 6-8 weeks, can anyone confirm? – user340193 Jan 28 '17 at 12:07

    Poor Anime & Manga! I wonder what the special challenge there is. – Monica Cellio Oct 8 '17 at 1:39
  • @MonicaCellio They finally got a design last month, but as more sites are being designed it's likely it'll still hold the all-time record for the highest wait. – Sonic the Anonymous WizHog Jun 12 at 2:51
