I just received my invite code today and took a quick look around the app. Like Mastodon I **do not** prefer microblogging platforms. And that's all I know about Bluesky.
So, what can you tell me about this project?
In this post I am speaking as a Beehaw fanatic and **not** as an admin. That is why it is placed in the chat community. To be clear, I am not speaking on behalf of the Beehaw admin team nor the community as a whole.
Currently, we have $5,430 that is in our collective purse to be used to further this endeavor. When I take a step back, and look at that amount of money, I am humbled. That is hope…it is an expression of where we want to go and what we want to preserve.
You may be wondering where we are with the testing of alternative platforms and any other considerations.
The testing phase, as far as I can tell, is over. We are, I believe, in a stage of digesting all of it. And, I have a feeling, that we are holding out hope that there could be other options we haven’t encountered yet.
I appreciate the patience of everyone involved and I don’t want to make a hasty decision.
Thankfully, we have had persons such as [PenguinCoder](https://beehaw.org/u/Penguincoder@beehaw.org) to rescue us from the huge Reddit exodus and all the technical problems associated with the Lemmy software platform that we rely on right now.
There have been whispers that [PenguinCoder](https://beehaw.org/u/Penguincoder@beehaw.org) could be working on a new platform for the Beehaw project.
Thank you all for grabbing onto our northern star, be(e) nice, and running with it.

I came across the [stickied weekly thread](https://www.reddit.com/r/uBlockOrigin/comments/178yasm/youtube_antiadblock_and_ads_october_16_2023/) at uBlock Origin's sub-Reddit. **WARNING**: It's a long and complicated read.
The TL;DR takeaway is thus (especially for those who use Firefox):
1. Click the uBlock Origin icon on Firefox's menu bar
2. You'll see a three-gear icon at the bottom right. Click this to open the dashboard.
3. Click the "Purge all caches" button at the top.
4. Click the "Update now" button at the top.
**Note**: You may have to do this several times per day since YouTube keeps changing their anti-adblock scripts. However, the diligent work, from all the volunteers at uBlock Origin, have been able to keep pace. I haven't seen any ads NOR any anti-adblock warnings in the past 48 hours.
The original post I made about this is [here](https://beehaw.org/post/8729172).
At first, I implemented the uBlock Origin method, recommended by [@firstname.lastname@example.org](https://email@example.com), and it seemed to work at first.
Today, I got another Anti-Ad blocker message and decided to try the method described by [@Peekystar@kbin.social](https://beehaw.org/u/Peekystar@kbin.social) and, again, this seemed to work at first.
Later today, neither of these methods work when trying to use YouTube itself. The redirect methods, probably, work fine if you are NOT using YouTube itself.
Does anyone else have another solution?
