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 The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.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

Hiya everyone,

I'm posting to get feedback on a suggestion I made to @Shade via PM, it would be awesome to hear what everyone else thinks of this too!

Flyover is a plugin I have only owned for a short while but I absolutely love it! Integration was clean and simple, we plan on running our ArmA 3 mod community via the usage of Steam authentication built into Flyover, a feature I have suggested to Shade would be something along the lines of a custom field in the users database entry that would be populated with information from Steam when users use the "Login with Steam" feature or a custom field in their User CP to set this so they don't necessarily have to login via Steam but they still have the ability to set this information manually, the reason for this is our forum will then tie in with our game servers and use it as a form of "whitelisting", what we require and would love to see as a feature is the ability to retrieve the users Steam 64 ID, this format of Steam ID is the only one ArmA uses for each players unique identifier, GMod will use the base Steam ID format (an example of another game that could utilize this kind of integration).

Please let me and ultimately Shade know what you all think of this and as we are all in desperate need of this feature :D

Kind regards,

Note that Flyover already comes with something like this, but it is limited to specific data points (Steam ID is not included at the moment). This will surely be added to Flyover development though.
