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?


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.
