As seen in this post, Design-Independent Graduation is on for early September!, there are 2 phases 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

Since May 24, 2022, Phase 2 has been split into two, with site design no longer tied to increased privilege thresholds:

[...] in general we have come to believe that reputation levels should be set in a way that makes sense for the needs of the site, not be based on something like leaving beta or getting a site design. As such, sites that feel the higher "full-site" reputation levels are more appropriate for them may request them at any time, while sites that do not already have the higher levels may keep the "beta" levels.

How long would subsequent phases occur after the site has graduated, i.e. 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 the phases for past graduated sites?

This is an incomplete list, made community wiki in case anyone wishes to add to it. The sites are sorted by graduation date, then by design date (if applicable), then by increased privilege date, then by name in alphabetical order.

Sources:

  • Graduation dates: Area 51 (formerly Timeline of SE sites, which gets the dates directly through the SE API)
  • Design dates and increased privilege dates: Site's Meta for announcements of new designs.

The duration confirms that "it varies". The sites with '?' are still waiting for their design or increased privilege thresholds. The last column is a link to the announcement of the design.

Prior to May 24, 2022, site design and increased privileges always occurred on the same day, as they were considered part of the same phase of site graduation.
