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 The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.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

notification email/PM

20 Jan 2021

does the notifications honor a user's PM/email preferences they set in their user cp? I had a subscriber not get their notification that their subscription was expiring and doing a search through my mail logs, I don't see any emails being sent to them within the time frame they should of gotten an email reminder.

is it possible to send both a PM & an email? the system right now only allows one or the other.

Yes, it honors each user's preferences. It is possible to introduce multiple notifications, but I am not available for some time.

the issue I'm having is that a particular subscriber on my forum (and possibly more) does have the options checked to received emails from admins (which I assume is what's needed for email notifications via bankpipe), yet he didn't get an email that his subscription was expiring 7 days prior to it expiring. I even checked my mail logs to see if it was sent and didn't see anything in my logs for the day it should of been sent on...

I wouldn't mind seeing a few things:
1: allowing a uid to be added as a CC to notification PMs/emails
2: allow both PM & email notifications to be sent together
3: log all notification messages that go out so it's easier to debug when there's a problem
