"This is for the record. History is written by the victor. History is filled with liars. If he lives, and we die, his truth becomes written - and ours is lost. Shepherd will be a hero, 'cause all you need to change the world is one good lie and a river of blood. He's about to complete the greatest trick a liar ever played on history. His truth will be the truth. But only if he lives, and we die."
Captain John Price


In January 18 2012 00:00 UTC This message will be displayed if the timer does not show up (like if you do not have javascript enabled on your browser) this Wiki along with imgur.com, reddit.com, wikipedia.org, destructoid.com, Mojang.com and many others plan to do a blackout for the day in protest of the Stop Online Piracy Act and the Preventing Real Online Threats to Economic Creativity and Theft of Intellectual Property Act that are being discussed within the United States Goverment.

Basically SOPA and PIPA mean that the United States Government could block websites, with just a few infringing links being enough to do so. This could effect you by many sites you visit regularly being blocked, email providers being forced to censor certain links you send or receive and your social networking sites being carefully monitored and censored.

This protest is to show regular internet users what could happen to the internet if either one of these bills pass, so tomorrow this wiki (including IRC and Special:Chat) will be blacked out from 12AM UTC on the 18th until 12AM UTC on the 19th. (Want to know when this is in your timezone? Click here!).

Thank you for your cooperation. Remember, we're not doing this for fun. We're doing it for our freedom. Iw5 cardicon soapN7 TC 11:25, January 17, 2012 (UTC)
