The previous World of Hyatt benefit that allowed eligible Globalists to requalify for Globalist status with 55 qualifying nights will be closed to new Globalists as of 1/1/19 and discontinued for all members as of 1/1/20."
Could folks help me parse this ... Who is a "new Globalist as of 1/1/19"? Who can still qualify as a Globalist during 2019 by reaching 55 nights?

For example: I was once a Hyatt Diamond. That allowed me to be a Hyatt Globalist during 2017. I did not stay enough during 2017 to retain Globalist status. So on 1 March 2018 I ceased being a Globalist. Because during 2018 I stayed at Hyatt more, in early October 2018 I became a Globalist again. Does that make me a "new Globalist"? I really am confused.
