Great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I announce that I cease all development and activity in the programming universe indefinitely. My career has reached the turning point I was not expecting for at least another year, leaving me highly off guard and without laid-out plans for this hobby's continuity. I have begun a 5-year residency program in Neurosurgery which is clearly not compatible, time-wise, with programming.

I gave in all my passion for developing, and you gave me back your loyalty and trust, even when I did not deserve that much. Now it is the time for payback. I release all my present and past work as Open Source software, in the hope some talented developer will continue maintaining and expanding my vision of a modern, sleek forum software. The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.

I hereby thank Euan, kawaii, andrewjs18, Ben, Matt, Omar G., effone, Eric J., Devilshakerz, Wildcard, JordanMussi and all the other team members I have had the opportunity to work with when I was a MyBB team member. I thank Tomm M, my mentor, who inspired me to pick up coding with his piece-of-art plugins. And finally, I thank all of you MyBBoost subscribers who have helped me getting through my toughest university years economically.

Yours sincerely, Filippo

[BUG] Facebook registering results in email = 1

7 Jan 2020
This issue is marked as solved
When I click on Login with Facebook and don't have an account yet it shows me the Flyover registration page with my username and email prefilled and all the boxes ticked ✅. Although when I click Save at the bottom, the text in email changes to "1" and an error ❌ states: "The email address you entered is invalid. Please enter a valid email address.". When I manually change that input field to my email address and click Save again it still fires the error.

When I start over, go back and click login with Facebook again, and this time untick the "Email" in the checkboxes and click Save there is no error but the email field is also not saved as a Custom Profile Field.

Ps. I set up Custom Profile Fields for every field prior to testing and see this bug.

Try to disable the email as custom profile field. Must be an incompatibility, without looking at the code I suppose the custom profile field overwrites the standard email input.

So yeah, email must be disabled as it conflicts with the actual email input field. Will be fixed in the next version. Disable the email in each provider's sync panel.
