Since we learned that Matter Modeling is graduating and Quantum Computing is graduating and Freelancing is graduating and Retrocomputing is graduating and Economics is graduating, I'm curious if HSM will be too?
In fact, the answer to your question is YES! We, the moderators, were recently informed that, on
December 16th, 2021,
we will officially lose the Beta label and become a fully-fledged Stack Exchange site.
For the day-to-day functioning of the site, this will not really make a big difference (beyond the removal of the "Beta" label on every page). It does imply, however, that we will have moderator elections sometime in the coming year. We will make sure to keep you, the community, posted on any developments on that front.
Around the 16th of December, a post on Meta Stack Exchange will appear to officially announce our graduation (and that of several other sites) along with some other information, but we've been given the go-ahead to tell you guys already. Thanks to all of our users for contributing to the site and making this possible!
