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 The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.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

MyBBoost has moved to a new hosting

11 Jan 2017 Edited
Thanks to your incessant support, I have purchased a new hosting space for MyBBoost which means the site does not run on an iframe anymore. This allows me to have more control over the plugins I develop since I do not need to account for iframe-related issues, which usually do not happen on the majority of the forums out there.

The transition should have been smooth, but the setup is not complete yet; I am still studying hard for my finals, so I will finish it up over the next couple of weeks. The following are some issues you may encounter:

Chat not available

The homepage chatroom will not be available for some time due to its time-demanding queries which need to be optimized, as for a yet unknown reason MySQL query cache is not working properly on the new hosting.

Login with social networks not available

Social networks applications are still tuned with the previous settings which implies the old "masked" URL still applies. Therefore, you may not be able to log in with some social networks over the next couple of weeks. Working providers: Facebook, GitHub, Steam

Great that you managed to get a better hosting :)

PS: Steam login works too
