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 The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.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

Got this bug on one of my member and now on myself, I don't really know how/why but I cannot see my own message inside a conversation only the message of other people.
They do not appear in the source code of the page either.

EDIT: only happening in one specific conversation for now, other / new conversation works as usual.

I have the same error in my forum. A member said that he could not read the messages. Only a conversion had this problem.

This should happen just for converted conversations, aka, those created before Symposium was installed. "Own messages" are simply those in the Sent inbox, and if you haven't saved them upon sending them, they can't be seen.

Messages sent after Symposium was installed are copied to the user's Sent inbox regardless of any setting, so you can see your own messages.
