This policy is based on community feedback about what they want for the new space. Designers said that in order to keep the group intimate, we should make sure it doesn't get too big. This is why we limited it to 'active' designers. We thought that a year seemed like a good length of time to cover designers who had just been busy but intending to come back. The idea is not to exclude or punish anyone, but rather to keep the group size manageable.
