Do we get the beta badge or is that for Stack Overflow alone?

We will get it, although it is only awarded to private beta users.

The badge is awarded shortly after the public beta starts

  • I think it'll be awarded once the beta ends, and like the SO version only if you satisfied some requirement of activity. – Grace Note Jul 8 '10 at 15:12
  • One of the criteria is that you need to get a certain number of badges - I think it's 5 which is why I didn't get it on Server Fault. – ChrisF Jul 8 '10 at 16:08

    We should have a gold private beta badge and silver public beta badge. – delete me Jul 8 '10 at 17:21
  • Where do we need to go to get the activity requirements? – Artemis Jul 8 '10 at 21:44
  • I'm pretty sure I remember reading somewhere on MetaSO that they are going to give a "Founder" badge for users who committed to the site on Area 51 and participated in the beta, and a "Beta" badge to anyone who participated in the public beta. But I can't find a reference... – Kip Jul 13 '10 at 12:55

  • @Juan: thanks, that's it – Kip Jul 13 '10 at 18:50
  • Aside from the badge description itself, this Meta post indicates that it actually only applies to those who participated in the private beta. – Grace Note Oct 14 '10 at 21:01
  • @ChrisF: it's three, not five. Quoting Jeff: "You must generate 3 bronze badges PRIOR to the beta becoming public to be eligible. This is quite trivial to do." – ЯegDwight Oct 15 '10 at 11:44
  • @Reg - It was a while ago when Server Fault came out of beta, so I'm not surprised I got it wrong! – ChrisF Oct 15 '10 at 11:52

I received the beta badge as soon as Area51 confirmed my commitment was fulfilled. I'm afraid an Area51 commitment is currently required for the badge :(
