Starting this week we will be rolling out a new update to the Shadow Ranking system which will ensure a much easier and fairer system. No one will be downgraded during this process!
We will be doing a one time manual adjustment to prepare for this upgrade. We will only adjust accounts UP, no one will loose any ranking!
This adjustment will help those whose accounts have not been given the proper boost the past few weeks as we have been working on the re-adjustment algorithm!
The original concept of Shadow Rank and the metrics used to calculate it have drastically changed over the last 2 months as we made big core changes that resulted in the ranking metrics no longer working properly over the long term. This is why we are providing the one term boost to those who deserve it and rolling out the new re-adjustment algorithm this weekend in our next release!
Thanks again everyone for being part of this project, expect the boosts in the next day!
