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 The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.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

Bump thread plugin

2 Nov 2016 Edited
I need a Bump Thread plugin for my forum. I found a plugin here: That's working with Newpoints plugin and that is here:

But Bump Thread need some update. It is not compatible with 1.8 or Newpoints plugin. When I install this plugins noting happen. I wrote to the Bump Thread developer ( but I think he very busy. So I want a bumping plugin like that.

I created some forum categories and I created special (premium) groups. For example bronze, silver, gold, diamond. Then I created special forums. I want only premium users can open threads in this special forums. And I did it. But I want something more:

Can premium users move the their threads to top?
For example:

Bronze users can move their threads to top each 8 hours.
Silver users can move their threads to top each 4 hours.
Gold users can move their threads to top each 2 hours.
Diamond users can move their threads to top each 1 hours.

Bump Thread plugin do this but not working :( I want an plugin that is compatible with NewPoints and MyBB 1.8.

Can someone help me?
(Note: I am Turkish. Sorry my English. I hope you understand me.)

Sorry, I do not support other plugins and from an overview of Omar's plugin it looks way too complex to be crafted or patched in a reasonable amount of time, which I do not currently have.

Request rejected.

I currently do not have the required spare time to accomplish this request as it's too complicated.
