Really just the front page, so you can still find the rest if you come in from behind.
Pussying out, eh? I would say that you should black out everything. But that would be expensive.

I do not really think that he is pussying out, more like taking half-steps.

I'd be all for taking the whole site down temporarily, but I guess the FP is better than nothing.

Just something I made regarding what would happen if SOPA passes.

I hope SOPA fails, if it passes then internet will be ruined...or at least permanently scarred for life.

Is NG going to be down all day then?
Most likely in the range of 8am-8pm EST.

Hell, 8am - 8am is alright, so long as I can deposit my experience every day, I'm happy.

More or less.

Might as well go all the way. People won't really get the full force of the impact of not having a Newgrounds if they can just dance around it. At least take the BBS off as well.

I wanna join in on this protest, but since I suck at Technical and Mathmatical things, I have no Idea how to black out my Youtube and Newgrounds page for the day. Can someone tell me how I can black out my Newgrounds Page?

Nice to hear NG is on board on the "Blackout" Bandwagon. I'm also gonna help the cause by turning off my twitter account, sorry to ALL my 53 followers but I gotta do what's right.

As far as blacking out, Wikipedia and Reddit are the only ones I know so far. Google is doing something for it but it's not blackout.

I think this bill is total bullshit. It's never going to pass, stuff like this never passes because of us. We want to and will defend our sites.

Again, I'm glad your going through with this Tom. Surely some questions will be raised with the blackout of this site and others and then the lot of people will know what what SOPA and PAIA are about.
