mwdiers (on August 25, 2010):

You have cruft left over from whatever project you extracted this from.

Line 20: my_form = BetaUserForm(request.POST)

should be deleted.

Line 21 should read:

if my_form.is_valid():

Line 64:

$('#id_beta_user_form') should read $('#id_my_form')

And finally, your view should at least be checking that the request is actually an ajax request, Line 18:

if request.method == 'POST' and request.is_ajax():
