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 The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.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

Forum Editor Plugin

15 May 2019
Hi Shade :) I need a plugin which allows forum specific moderators to edit and modify their forum's details. What previously had to be done by administrators will now be at the moderators descression.

I believe the best way to accomplish this is by hooking into the modcp and extending the functionality from there.

This allows things such as:

- Edit forum name
- Edit forum description
- Add/remove password
- Edit forum rules
- Edit forum prefixes
- Add/remove moderators and edit their permissions

to be controlled by the forum mods. Which makes for much more vibrant forums.

Also, on my forum users can create their own forums without admin intervention, so this plugin will tie in nicely with that and let users basically run the forum.

Looks easy, and I have already got a base for this. My goal was to let developers create their own forums here and promote their own plugins/themes, so I had plenty of more options in mind (such as BankPipe integration, custom pages, download manager, ...). Never got the time to work properly on it, maybe this might pump up my motivation.

Accepted. Anyway, I have a busy schedule for 2 months and a couple of other requests ahead of yours. Can't give an exact ETA, but not before September I'm afraid.

Alright, fair enough. Yeah my description was really just the beginning on what could be done. Interested to see what you can come up with.
