As indicated in the Pre-1500 Help page, the approval takes about 2 days as it is based on feedback from the leadership group.   I do not see a previous application for the badge, and the current one was submitted yesterday.

The Pre-1500 certification process is different than Pre-1700. Have you reviewed Pre-1500 page

Edit to fix typo

I am not Pre-1500 certified, but I am a Mentor.  Looking at some of your created profiles, I don't see many primary sources or many sources at all on many of your profiles.  Part of the Pre-1500 certification is that you are proving that you know how to find sources and add them properly to profiles.  You have to be able to provide profiles where you made significant changes and have sourced.
Linda Peterson, I try to source all my profiles. You say I don't have many sources at all, that is not true. I am not good at writing a life story for the profile.

Thanks for such a positive answer...It do not help me.
As an example, looking at Posey-136, it has 2 sources, Wikipedia and another source, neither of which are considered primary sources.  That is all that I was pointing out.

I tried to locate Posey-136, I could not find that profile. I only have one Posey profile and that is Alexander Lawrence Posey (1873 - 1908)

Yes, that was the person that I had seen in your contributions.  You added some more sources after I posted that.  I have now added a marriage source and land transfers that I found on family search that mention 3 of his children, as well as Find a Grave which has links to his wife and 2 sons, but it has an earlier death date, which I mentioned in Research Notes.
