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 The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.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

order confirmation pm/email changes

while it's nice this was added in I believe beta 6, it should be added as a module/setting in admin/index.php?module=config-bankpipe rather than the language files so it does not get overwritten each time bankpipe is updated.

further, it'd be nice to be able to assign a specific confirmation pm/email to a specific subscription. for example, on one of my sites, I hope to set up 2 different subscriptions in the near future. as such, I'd like to tailor each pm/email slightly different.

also, this is how the current paypal order confirmation looks now in the language files:
Dear {1},
your order {2} has been confirmed. You have bought:


You paid [b]{4}{5}[/b] to {6}. You can see a detailed breakdown of your purchase [url={7}]here[/url].

Best regards,
it'd be nice to know what {1}, {2}, {3} and etc. are variables for.
