I came on the forums here before bed to see if any others where doing anything too in protest.
Fingers crossed I've done mine alright. I've put a 503 in the header, I think, hehe (first time I've actually attempted it, so hope I got it right)
I used at the top of my php file...
header('HTTP/1.1 503 Service Temporarily Unavailable');
header('Status: 503 Service Temporarily Unavailable');
?><!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD HTML 2.0//EN">
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Pragma" CONTENT="no-cache">
I also hope I used the no cache correctly too so visitors see the new page and not the old one in there browser cache.
On another note I had to switch Cloudfare off on my website awhile back as I saw no benefit speed wise and an actual decrease in ad revenue and visitors somehow. It may of been coincidence I suppose.
