Last week, I asked for help in creating a challenge checker with GC7DMB7 that requires you to have found caches with at least 50,000 total favorite points.   A checker was created, and once I verified, I said thank you, and used it to request my cache be published.   Now the challenge checker button on the cache page seems to have gotten "disconnected" from the script.    What did I do wrong?

The challenge caches has to be Unknown types and therefore the checker got disabled after publication and after the system found out that the cache is not a valid challenge cache based on the rules:

Please, change the type to Unknown and then write directly the the one who created you the checker/tag to re-enable it.

That cache should not have been published as it is now. 

1. Type and Title

Challenge caches must be listed as Mystery caches and must have the English word "challenge" in the title.

New checker issued https://project-gc.com/Challenges/GC7DMB7/29485 , this should solve the problem

Its not going to fix it. It will get disabled again automatically, because the cache is not a Mystery. This should not have gone through the reviewer in the first place, because it is violating already the first rule for Challenge caches as already pointed twice.
Your wright the cache type is wrong, I forgot to check
