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 The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.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

Great work!

Hey, I just wanted to say that you're doing a great job with your plugins! It is nice to see some new, modern features for MyBB...I was starting to feel like MyBB was becoming out dated, but your mods are making me love MyBB again!

I do have a suggestion for about a plugin that adds a modern news ticker to the index page or every page? There are a bunch out there but honestly, I haven't found one that looks good and/or works properly! I know you are busy but if you have any interest, let me know and I can list some features that i would be looking for!

Thanks for the awesome mods! Keep 'em coming!!

Thanks for your appreciations. I do my best.

As for plugin requests, please open a thread either in Requests or Private Inquiries forums. I do have to warn you that I do not have much spare time at the moment and I have other requests on hold, as well as improvements for the current betas.
