PPCG has graduated. Some features for graduated sites come immediately after graduating. However, other features are held off for an indefinite amount of time:
The site gets a custom theme, and
Privilege levels, which are initially lowered to help growing beta sites grow, are raised to match the privilege levels of Stack Overflow.
PPCG has been graduated for over two years, but Stack Exchange has not had the resources to make our custom theme. This has held us back from getting our privilege levels adjusted, since traditionally these two changes happen at the same time. But this does not need to be the case. We've received word from the Community team that our privilege thresholds can be adjusted to post-design levels, prior to getting our design. However, we need to check in with you, the PPCG community, to make sure that you are OK with that change before it can happen.
What will happen?
- Our privilege thresholds will be changed to the post-design levels. This means that all users with less than 25,000 reputation will lose some privileges, and will have to earn more rep in order to regain them.
What won't happen?
- We're not getting a design yet. Great things take time.
Please let us know what you think about this proposal.

Stack Exchange has not had the resources to make our custom theme. It was made clear to us that raising the privilege levels now would have no impact on how long it takes to get our design, because raising the privilege levels is just changing a setting, whereas our design is in the backlog of the understaffed design team. \$\endgroup\$
