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

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
