08/03 Weekly Post: Shadow Boost Activation Update


Userlevel 5
Badge +4

Hey #TeamShadow,
 

Welcome to this week’s activation update!

Last week, we confirmed delays of varying degrees by datacenter, emailing the users unfortunately impacted by this delay with their updated delivery timeline.

You’ll find those updated timelines along with a few formatting changes below in today’s update.

“Formatting changes? Sounds boring.”

Typically, yes. But we think you’ll find this to be a delight:

The Start of Week and Target by next Monday sections have been replaced by Activations this Week.

Rather than split the week’s target and start in two, Activations this Week will list the..*checks notes*...activations for this week for each datacenter. The general reminders about activations (listed below) will remain the same, but this should provide a more concise snapshot to determine whether you’ll be activated this week.

Thank you for always sharing your feedback about activations and all things Shadow! We look forward to hearing your feedback about this week’s updates and the changes made.

 

As a reminder:
-We activate Monday through Thursday

-Beginning at 8am local time each day for each datacenter
 

Below is the activation information by datacenter. You can check which datacenter you belong to here
