Stemming from this question the text for "Self-Learner" badge is pretty easy to get confused by.

Current Text

Answered your own question with score of 3 or more

Issue

The person in the above question was confused as they thought they needed to answer their own question, and that the question had to have a score of 3 or more. What it actually means is that they have to answer their own question, and the answer needs to have a score of three or more. The way it is phrased is ambiguous, so why not make it clear?

Suggestion

Edit the text as follows:

Provide an answer with a score of 3 or more to your own question

No more confusion.

    So why isn't this implemented yet? – YakovL Apr 19 '17 at 13:43

I'd agree but I would use:

Answer your own question achieving a score of 3 or more.

It sounds more in keeping with the rest of the descriptions and the word achieving is more positive (probably not the right word but it kinda works).
