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

When I logged on to Meta SO a few minutes ago, a brown message said I have earned a "Self Learner Badge". But when I look at my badges, it's not there.

Where did it go?

As a self learner you have to figure that out yourself. – Lance Roberts Aug 9 '10 at 21:42
@lance: lol, bet you are the Wizard from Oz ... not sure whether I'm the Lion, Scarecrow, Tin Man; definitely I'm not Dorothy. – gerryLowry Aug 10 '10 at 19:12

Answered your own question with score of 3 or more

As far as I can tell, you don't have any answers that qualify - so you shouldn't have earned it in the first place.

Is it possible someone downvoted a a self-answer and its score dropped from 3 to 2? (Even so, you're not supposed to be able to un-earn badges).

There's only one self answer I can see and that's at a score of -2. Maybe when all the downvotes went AWOL the badge was issued and later rescinded? – Martin Smith Aug 9 '10 at 23:13
@ Jon B and Martin Smith: I've marked Jon's answer and upvoted both Jon's answer and Martin's comment because they both sound like plausible reasons; thank you both for researching this. – gerryLowry Aug 10 '10 at 19:25
