There is a wrong text for beta badge on meta. It says "Actively participated in the Stack Overflow private beta", shouldn't that say "Actively participated Meta Stack Overflow private beta"?

Actually, that badge should probably just be removed, since there was never really a Beta for MetaSO.

I don't think Meta was ever in Beta. It was a direct launch on Jeff whim if I recall.


Meta was created directly from Stack Overflow. Users who started using it early, even got to keep their user-ids from Stack Overflow.
