Good, I was a noticias staff for 2 years and I managed it for more than 1 year. I know how that works, and I agree that users should earn the rank that they already have. When this happens, they appreciate more and take care more the rank, not simply because it was given to them by a friend how Glitch does it.
Also, as they admit the spanish language was a great initiative but has had shortcomings because more moderators are needed to handle the spanish language very well, because there are users who do disturbances in this language.
That's just my point of view.
