Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Is there some extra reputation boost for active participation in the betas?

It's not mentioned anywhere in the FAQ and I was wondering if involvement there showered you in any extra benefits.

I don't believe there was anything given in terms of reputation from the beta; however, any reputation earned from questions and answers during the beta period did carry over. Not sure if that would count as being given reputation per se, but you could argue that it did make it a bit easier to earn some reputation since questions would stay on the homepage longer at that time.

I highly doubt it. Even for participation in the Stack Overflow site beta all you got was a lousy badge (yeah, that's envy. I don't have it.)

Shiny badge, shiny badge, shiny badge :) – Ladybug Killer Jan 11 '10 at 8:41
Shiny ? It wasn't even as shiny as as the formerly woot badge. – Sathya Jan 11 '10 at 14:14
