Can I reapply for Pre 1700 Certification? Lockout means I can't adjust 80% of my own tree.

You have the Pre-1700 badge. Why do you say you are "locked out?"

Sorry. Someone suggested I would not be able to adjust any of my Pre 1700 profiles with external 'permission'? Is it possible to re-apply? I got tired of repeating a source when I added about 150 extra profiles one weekend. I suspect that is why the badge was removed? You claim I have it still? it didn't appear on my profile the last time I accessed the site. i just check again. Confirming It's been removed
I saw the badge on your profile just now. Have you tried to edit any pre-1700 profile recently? Have you received any email from WikiTree Admin which states they have removed/blocked your badge?
What type of source were you using for pre-1700? Family trees from any site are not valid sources on Pre-1700 profiles.
Chris, check all your badges.  Full page shows you certified in 2017, so no one removed it.

Someone may have sent you a message 'warning you' that you cannot continue adding pre-1700 profiles, as you have done, stating only a family tree!  You could have gotten a message from a Ranger that saw that activity which could get you 'reported to a Mentor' or 'locked out' until you add or agree to add sources to those profiles.

If a family tree you are looking at has sources, add the sources from the tree, but the only source cannot be family trees, as you agreed to during the certification for Pre-1700.  Possibly you should review Pre-1700 Help Page

Maybe a Ranger thought that 

  • Chris Wright's Tree
was not really a source  ?
