A couple days ago somebody mentioned the Beta Badge, which is given to users who "actively participated in the private beta". If you view this page, it defines "active participation" as "...earning at least three bronze badges". Yet, on the page that lists the users who have the Beta Badge, there are a couple who have only two badges besides the Beta Badge, while people who earned more than three or more badges during the private beta aren't listed there.

I (and others) met that requirement before the public beta, yet we aren't classified as people who participated in the beta. I know that badges and reputation aren't [and shouldn't be] the main thing here, but I thought I'd bring this up.

Is this a bug, or am I missing something?


That page is only correct for the original trilogy.

For all other sites, the beta badge is calculated differently -- primarily by # of questions or answers you provided in the beta time frame.
