Two thoughts (neither postulating as to the how bit):

1. You neither earned nor used this status over those six years (at least until very recently), so overall no harm/no foul.

I agree that the program has been devalued in countless ways and I'm disgusted by Marriott and their tool of a "leader."

Having said that, I consider both 500 and 600 nights to be almost absurdly...

I wouldn't necessarily think of it as starting over, per se, but yes, you need years of actual status at or above a given level to be in the running for LT status at said level. Would it really make...
