The site graduated from beta status last September:
Congratulations, Motor Vehicle Maintenance & Repair is graduated!
The staged process of transition as described in that post then commenced.
The fifth bullet point hasn't yet happened:
For the second phase, the site will at a later date receive a full design from one of our designers, which will be packaged with an increase in the amount of reputation needed to access each privilege. This will be preceded by the designer pitching their ideas and soliciting feedback from the community.
I know that graduation is a phased process which takes as long as it takes and I am not complaining about the timing. But, is there an idea of when the design will come?
