Because of the public beta, the beta batches are awarded. But I can't see them on the top row. They also don't appear with the username.

I see that they are visible with users already having a silver badge but not with other users. Is this as designed or is it a bug?

Update I got another badge today and it shows up. Maybe the beta badge is a bit shy. Anyway, this one seems to be resolved.

  • I've got the same problem... my status bar at the top (and my Flair) only shows my copper badges (on the main site, not Meta) and not my Beta silver.

  • I'm still not seeing my silver badge beside my name. Guess I just need to work on getting a new badge. Oct 29, 2010 at 19:10
  • This is marked as status-completed now, but mine is still missing.

Mine showed up today. Probably just need to update the cache somewhere along the way.


Mine appeared on the parent site once I had received another badge.

I assume as I haven't got another badge yet on the meta site, it's still missing here.

It appears when you get any notification, regardless of whether it's a badge or not.

I got mine when someone retagged one of my questions.

Edit: Correction, I got awarded the badge, but my top row and Flair are still missing it.
