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

Since this badge can't be earned by users joining after it was too late, I think it would be fair to remove it from their list. It's somewhat depressing to take a look at something you can't ever achieve.

FWIW, Jeff left entries for unattainable Precognitive badges on the badges page intentionally. – Pops May 4 '11 at 4:12

I think it should be left - it's not like it massively increases the clutter of the badge page. What if I want to see a list of all the beta users? Also, how can it be depressing? Surely there are dozens of other unearned badges the non-Beta users can focus their interest on?

I understand your point, but it's that not ever being able to earn it somehow feels uneasy, at least to me. – Shamim Hafiz Mar 30 '11 at 17:15

I think the answer is: Go to Area 51 and find a proposal you're excited about. Now you can earn that Beta badge.
