Shiver Me Timbers

provide the highest scoring answer that outscores an accepted answer with a score of 3 or more by 2x or more

So does that mean:

I need an answer that has 3 or more upvotes that is higher in votes than the accepted answer or outscore the accepted answer by 2x or more

or does it mean:

I need an answer that has 3 or more upvotes that is higher in votes than the accepted answer and outscore the accepted answer by 2x or more

    Regarding secret hats, I have it on good authority that there are hats thought to be so unattainable that they weren't worth weighing down the sprite. Then again, I talk to rocks, so take it with a grain of salt. – Tim Post Dec 20 '12 at 16:26

provide the highest scoring answer that outscores an accepted answer with a score of 3 or more by 2x or more

When a question has an accepted answer that is not yours with a score of atleast 3. You have to have an answer thats score is twice as much as the accepted answer and is the highest scored answer.

provide the highest scoring answer that outscores an (accepted answer with a score of 3 or more) by 2x or more

It looks like if a question has an answer with a score of 3, you get this badge by posting an answer with a score of six, and only if there are no even yet better answers

You need to answer a question where the accepted answer has at least a score of 3, and your answer is the one with the highest score, that is at least twice the score of the accepted answer.
