Where is my Beta badge?

So I know from Mark Trapp's answer to this question that

The private beta for Programmers lasted for 7 days immediately following the conclusion of the commitment period. It is unattainable now. We're currently in the public beta period.

So from I gather the Private Beta started on 9/1/2010. My oldest answer is from 9/3/2010. So I had some activity in the first week.

Obviously I wasn't active enough. Any ideas what more I needed?

  • Oddly It would seem I do meet the three bronze badge rule. Won't be able to prove it until this site ends the beta and shows up on odata Commented Dec 7, 2010 at 21:32
  • Spoke to soon. Jeff's comment on his answer is that the requirements are a bit more strict now. He should edit his answer. Commented Dec 7, 2010 at 21:46
  • That question and answer referred to the beta periods of Stack Overflow, Server Fault and Super User which were handled a lot differently to the new SE 2.0 sites. Here the requirement is 10 posts (I think).

Just from my intial read, the Beta Badge description says

Actively participated in the private beta

I'm pretty sure that one answer is not actively participating. But to your point, I don't know what number of questions/answers is.
