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 The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.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

Full fledged Invitation-System

4 Sep 2020
i would like to create a MyBB forum that has an invitation system that works like this:
Administrators can drop invites to certain usergroups if they meet specific requirements and drop them to users individually aswell, an invite code is around 24 characters long and randomized and is also required to register.
normal users are also able to manage their available invitation codes with a copy-to-clipboard button or something of the sort.

as you probably know,this method of registeration is mainly used in big private video-game cheats.
well i work on some with friends and i use your MyBB plugins as the main driver for forum enhancement

if you could make such plugin become a thing, i would be more than thankful.

PS: i understand that you currently have alot of workload IRL but this is just an idea for future times where you're able to work on plugins.

Thank you for reading
