Your once in a life time opportunity, getting the Beta badge for “Drones and Model Aircraft”. It is no longer obtainable after the private beta ends.

It’s requirements are:

Voted 10 times, added 3 posts score > 0, and visited the site on 3 separate days during the private beta.

Hope to see a lot of these awarded!

    $\begingroup$ Hellyeah! Let's go, guys! But seriously, don't just do it for the silver badge. $\endgroup$ – ifconfig Apr 15 at 4:17
  • $\begingroup$ @ifconfig Yeah, do it for the gold badges like Electorate and Fanatic ;) $\endgroup$ – TheSimpliFire Apr 15 at 7:57

The Beta Badge will be awarded soon after the private beta comes to an end. All those who qualify will receive this badge at the same time. I guess it is the way the system is set up.

Here is an example of what I mean.

I'm sure a lot of us have already met the requirements, but the badge doesn't seem to have been awarded yet for anyone: https://drones.stackexchange.com/help/badges/30/beta

Could it be a bug?

    $\begingroup$ Yes a lot of us have, yay! The badge is usuall awarded at the start of the public beta $\endgroup$ – Xnero Apr 19 at 20:51
  • $\begingroup$ I see! It's a bit odd that all the other badges are already awarded and this one has to wait until public beta. But no big deal I suppose. $\endgroup$ – Nike Dattani Apr 19 at 21:03

    $\begingroup$ It all has to do when a given badge script runs... I guess since the beta badge is only offered for participants during private beta, there's no point in running it all the time... I guess rather than injecting code to check whether a given site is public or private beta or graduated, it's a fairly manual process. $\endgroup$ – anonymous2 Apr 20 at 18:44
  • $\begingroup$ @anonymous2 I see! $\endgroup$ – Nike Dattani Apr 20 at 18:46
  • $\begingroup$ Also, it's worth mentioning that back when the badge was first created, the criteria to earn it were undisclosed, so this prevented people from figuring out what they were easily. However, at a later point, they were publicly disclosed. $\endgroup$ – gparyani Apr 28 at 3:26
