How to make Wikipedia work #wikipediablackout

The Wikipedia community has blacked out the English version of Wikipedia for 24 hours to raise awareness about legislation being proposed by the U.S. Congress — the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the U.S. House of Representatives, and the PROTECT IP Act (PIPA) in the U.S. Senate — and to encourage readers to speak out against it.

What should we do if we want knowledge? Just do the following to view Wikipedia normally:

  1. Open the desired link
  2. Wait some time (about a second or two, depends on your Internet connection speed)
  3. Just press the ESCAPE button to avoid redirect to the black page



The English Wikipedia will be accessible on mobile devices and smart phones. Because the protest message is powered by JavaScript, it’s also possible to view Wikipedia by completely disabling JavaScript in your browser.

Enjoy Wikipedia and support the blackout!
