Hey Team Shadow,
 

Welcome to this week’s update on Shadow Boost activations.

Now that we’re a few days into Early July, it’s important to note that our team is still heads down working on the delay for those who ordered before May 26th at Chicago, New York, or Texas. As mentioned in the email sent to impacted users, our teams are working with partners to deliver a primary storage deployment necessary for giving you access to your Shadows. 

 

European activations are on track and rolling smoothly, with specific activation targets listed below. Santa Clara is activating on schedule (promised July 2020).

 

UPDATE:
Fortunately this week the team has been able to activate ahead of our initial Monday projections for Paris, Chicago, New York, and Texas! The “Target by next activation update” sections for each data center have been updated with the latest dates.

 

 

As a reminder:
-We activate Monday through Thursday

Hi. NY user here. So I ordered on July 9th. Does that mean I have to wait in the activation line behind people who ordered in may?

Duh, what do you think you are, some sort of king?

No, Just trying to make sense of this whole thing. 

Imagine asking a question on the internet and getting a response from a decent human being. Lol 

 

thanks mememaster. You announced that you’re a stereotype

See here, you sounded for a moment that you expected people who ordered later to be activated faster

No, I thought my question would clear things up being I just heard of shadow on the day I hit pay. 
 

For others seeing this.

​Well, I don’t know how you expect that question is gonna clear things up :joy: . It does look that you expected to get activated before people in May.

How?
