I am a bit confused about the Tag badges.
For ex, a Bronze tag badge for 10.04 says

Earned at least 100 total score for at least 20 non-community wiki answers in the 10.04 tag

I know what community is, I know what wiki Q&A are.But what is non-community wiki?

Does it mean answers(or questions) that are wiki's but made wiki by someone other than community?

It's intended to be read as

non-(community wiki)

rather than:

(non-community) wiki

That is, "non-community wiki" (in this context) means posts that aren't community wiki, rather than posts that are wiki in some way other than being community wiki.

You might want to submit a bug post on Meta.SO requesting the wording be changed, if you believe it's confusing. I wouldn't recommend changing "non-community wiki" to "non community wiki" or "non community-wiki," but I would suggest a rewording to something like this:

Earned at least 100 total score for at least 20 answers (except community wiki) in the (tag name) tag

Or this:

Earned at least 100 total score for at least 20 answers (that are not community wiki) in the (tag name) tag

Or:

Earned at least 100 total score for at least 20 answers (other than community wiki) in the (tag name) tag

When similar opportunities for confusion arise on meta, I usually use the less formal "CW" as an abbreviation for community wiki. While "non-community wiki" is confusing because intuitively dashes have higher precedence than spaces, "non-CW" remains unambiguous.

That might also be suggested as an alternative wording for the badge description. But "CW" might confuse people who don't know it stands for "community wiki."

I think that to understand non-community wiki, you have to understand what is a community wiki:

Non-community wiki is the opposite of a community wiki.
