What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

The description of this badge is: "Answered your own question with score of 3 or more".

It seems that this badge can be earned multiple times, but when I examined many users who have earned it, I found no one had earned it multiple times.

Why doesn't Stack Overflow describe it as "First answered your own question with score of 3 or more"?

Because badges that can be earned multiple times have 'this badge can be earned multiple times' stated explicitly in their description. – Yi Jiang Jun 12 '11 at 10:44
