Ebooks.SE has just recently morphed from “private beta” to “public beta”.
Yet, as far as I can see, not a single person gained the Beta badge… even though the description says:
Beta — Actively participated in the private beta
Now, I know many of us around here have been participating actively during the private beta period. So, there has to be something I am not understanding correctly in relation to that badge. But what am I missing?
Currently, I see two possible options:
According to the description, a good chunk of the members here should have received the badge, but they didn't… which would point to a bug in the system.
The alternative is that the current “public beta” is still regarded to be a private beta by the system and the description is wrong. In that case, someone should probably update that description.
The badges are manually awarded by the staff at SE, and we went to public beta during a holiday week. It is now the weekend, and it will probably happen sometime next week (another holiday week by the way)
