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 The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.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

30 Mar 2017 Edited
I have managed to spend some time adding TLS certificates to MyBBoost, which you can now access using the HTTPS protocol.

The transition should have been seamless, however since the site is running on CloudFlare there might be some issues with some files returning Internal Server Error codes upon establishing a secure TLS connection over the next 24 hours. This is a huge step forward both a safer web and more complete plugins, since I develop using MyBBoost as testing base. Some plugins which produce mixed content, including Flyover 2.4 and MyFacebook Connect 3.6, will be updated in the next couple of weeks.

I have also had the chance to install the excellent DVZ Secure Content by devilshakerz, so you don't have to worry about posting unsafe content. Avatars without HTTPS have been consequently removed and you will be asked to upload HTTPS-only images.

I noticed after adding https some images/avatars don't load or take longer to load.
