Take your sites down for protest in SOPA. Because if it passes that is what will happen.

Sopa should replace all sites with "http://sopastrike.com/strike"

Hello

I agree.

Wikipedia, and other big sites, are doing that:



Another Yola user has put a page up saying "CENSORED" with a video about it: http://www.552industries.com/

I really disagree with SOPA because it will shut down Wikipedia and other big sites if passed which will really mess up the internet.

Also, SOPA will not replace everyone's URL, it will just give people the ability to get any site shut down if the site appears to have their copyrighted content on it. But I don't see how Wikipedia is included in that.

If you think about it, my site (adoncraft.com) would be down for copyright since i run a minecraft server. I feel almost everything on the internet would be shutdown if it passes you do raise a good point almost everything will be down. I really want an employee to respond with a yes or no.

Just because you host Minecraft you will be shut down? Wow.

However, I don't think Yola will be able to temporarily shut down their whole system. It is Yola site owners that have this option to put up a page about it.

Hi Andondriel: What do you want us to respond with a Yes or No to? We are very much opposed to SOPA. However, we are not planning a Yola.com blackout at this time owing to the inconvenience it would cause to our customers.

To change your index page (homepage):

1. On your homepage, click "Page" and "Save page as".
2. Save it as "index2" or something like that.
3. Create another page called "index" It will ask you if you want to override the current one. Click OK as you have the other homepage saved as another page.

It will bring you to the new homepage. You can then edit it and save. Changes will reflect after you publish your site.

I hope this helps. If you have any questions or run into any problems during this process please let me know.

i've known about the SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) since 2009
the SOPA bill being passed will allow websites to be blocked in the US
