This question already has an answer here:

On the Fitness beta site I have at the momment 8 broze badges and I was wondering when do we get the silver beta badge. Will it be in the private beta, during public beta, or when it is live?

You will get the beta badge once the site moves into public beta,assuming you meet the qualifying requirements


The "exact requirements" seem to have something to do with posting answers/questions and getting upvotes for them.

Thanks for that – Benny Mar 6 '11 at 4:45
I forget where, but I think Jeff said this has changed and it is now harder to get the Beta badge. I don't think he said what the new requirements are, but I suspect they include at least one answer. When Graphic Design left private beta, I had 5 bronze badges, one question, >50 votes(given by me), and did not get the beta badge. – John Mar 12 '11 at 2:45
Source(In the comments): @mmyers no, the requirements are a bit more strict now. – Jeff Atwood♦ Jul 23 '10 at 18:55 – John Mar 12 '11 at 2:51
A bit more strict? I don't understand. I had twelve bronze badges in bitcoin after the private beta and didn't get this badge, others had only two but received it. – Nicolas Kaiser Sep 8 '11 at 9:46
