"Answered more than 30 days later as first answer scoring 2 or more. This badge can be awarded multiple times."

Should it maybe be:

Answered more than 30 days later than the first answer, scoring 2 or more. This badge can be awarded multiple times.

.. or maybe:

Answered a question more than 30 days after the first answer and achieved a score of 2 or more. This badge can be awarded multiple times

Tricky getting it concise and clear. It's definitely grammatically incorrect and unclear as it is now.

Not to nit-pick, but a "typo" is when something isn't typed as intended, e.g. hitting the wrong key...this is more about the grammar/clarity of the description :) –  Nick Craver Oct 8 '11 at 14:50

The answer that gets the badge must be an answer given 30 days after the question was posted, and the first answer of that question to get to a score of two or more. I agree that this is very confusing.

It's a bit clearer on List of all badges with full descriptions

  • bronze; awarded multiple times
  • Answer a question 30 days after it is asked and have that answer be the first one for that question to reach a score of two

This is a bit old, but I'd like to see if this can be revisited. Rather than posting a duplicate topic, I've opted to post an answer with my suggestion, because I was a little confused on the text when I saw it.

Answered more than 30 days later as first answer scoring 2 or more. This badge can be awarded multiple times.

I didn't know anything about the List of all badges with full descriptions until I found this thread, so the only description I had to go on was the quoted text above.

I'd like to suggest that the mini-text be changed to

Answered more than 30 days later as the first answer to score 2 or more. This badge can be awarded multiple times.

(changes are bolded to mark the differences from the current text).

I agree. I found the description of this badge a bit confusing too. –  Steph Sharp May 9 '13 at 3:28
