Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I've searched Meta and found no answer, and based on the description of the badge, I see no reason why they wouldn't, but since Community Wiki posts are a bit different from regular posts, I think it might be useful to make it clear whether or not they count.

Should Community Wiki questions/answers count?

I recently got Self Learner for this CW answer at Programmers Meta and for this CW answer at MSO – gnat Apr 18 '12 at 4:09

They do.

I got it for this answer on Math.SE.

I've added this to the complete description of badges page

Yes, it would be nice if non-CW and CW were explicitly specified on the badges page since tagmadges don't work the same way.

They should. I say should because I've never personally seen one awarded for a community wiki post.

The What are “Community Wiki” posts? FAQ states:

The original author still gets badges based on community posts.

I assume this applies to all the regular badges. I know it applies to badges like Nice Answer and similar which I have gotten on community wiki posts previously. I also know for sure that you do not get tag badges for community wiki posts.

+1. That quote suggests the badge should be awarded in this situation. However, the tag badges specifically state that CW posts do not count. I think it would be a bit clearer if Self-Learner specifically stated whether or not they count. – yoozer8 Apr 18 '12 at 3:48
