This feature request is inspired by the question http://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/218168/what-are-non-community-wikis-in-stack-exchange-and-why-is-it-named-soWhat are Non-Community Wikis in Stack Exchange and why is it named so?, which in turn was caused by confusing wording in the tag badge descriptions:

"I have seen the term Non-Community wiki in the Badges area.

Bronze Badge - You must have a total score of 100 in at least 20 non-community wiki answers to achieve this badge.

Silver Badge - You must have a total score of 400 in at least 80 non-community wiki answers to achieve this badge.

Gold Badge - You must have a total score of 1000 in at least 200 non-community wiki answers to achieve this badge."

Yeah, sure, we all know what it's supposed to mean, because we're familiar with SE jargon and know that answers come in two varieties: "normal" and "community wiki". But for new users unfamiliar with such esoteric details, parsing "non-community wiki answers" as "wiki answers that are non-community, whatever that means" is a perfectly reasonable interpretation of the ambiguous wording.

So let's fix it! My suggestion for improved wording would be:

"You must have a total score of X in at least Y answers (excluding community wikis) to achieve this badge."

If you have an even better suggestion, let's hear it!
