This is an official announcement that we will be going dark on after midnight of January 18 2012 to protest the Stop Online Piracy Act (which is now effectively dead) and it “lesser” twin the PROTECT-IP Act (which is still alive and kicking).
As of now, the blackout will end after 12:01 AM Eastern time on January 19 2012. We anticipate going dark again on the day that the US Senate votes on PIPA, and that will be on January 24 2012 beginning at 12:01 AM Eastern to January 25 2012 at 12:01 AM Eastern.
We will be redirecting all of our websites, including BattlestarWiki.org, FrakMedia.net, BattlestarForum.com and GalacticaGeek.com, to the SOPA Strike Page. The only website we will leave unaffected is the Battlestar Wiki Blog, so that people know what is going on.

Thank you for your attention. Actual out.
