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 The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.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

Error on login/registration with Steam (MySQL 1364)

27 Feb 2017 Edited
This issue is marked as solved
Good day, dear Sire!

When I try to login/register on (which is my forum, feel free to try it), after putting in my steamguard-code, I end up on the page "", showing me this:

"MyBB has experienced an internal SQL error and cannot continue.

SQL Error:
1364 - Field 'usernames' doesn't have a default value
INSERT INTO mybb_flyover_settings_data (Steam, uid) VALUES ('IDcensored-same-as-below', 4) ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE Steam = 'IDcensored-same-as-above'"

The user will be registered, though - even multiple times when I tried. (I created three users with my steam account now).

Would you be so kind to point me in a valid direction for solving that problem?
If you need any accounts or login-data for testing/solving purpose, feel free to contact me via PM or email.

Thank you and have a nice day!

I could not reproduce the issue you are having with the avatars. They are imported fine in my tests.
