I'm new to the whole Beta joining thing. And I want to know, when you select a new thing. Do you get the beta version to play. Or does Valve employee's select people trying to participate in it?

Could you please explain your question again?

What betas are you asking about, exactly?

If you get an email that's says you have been selected for 'x' game beta and then it asks you to log into a website or give your username and password it is a SCAM.

All beta's that I have been a part of have been on an opt in basis or I have been selected and the client has been sent to me or I have been given a password to a website that only beta people can access.

Never give out your username and password to anyone. VALVe will never ask for your password.

You can find Betas to participate in via Settings (Account tab) within the Steam client. Steam client betas are open to all Steam users and other betas require that you own the game, but it is still open to all who own the game.

If it is a closed beta, you will be invited to join it.
