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 The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.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

Payment does not finalize when discount code is used

This issue is marked as solved
I had a member test the new update and we ran ino a little problem:

He said he was not allowed any payment choices such as paypal balance or paypal credit. He had to use his credit card.

Also, his status was not automatically upgraded even though I have it set to bump a buyer to the next level

Plus there was an SQL error:

MyBB SQL Error
MyBB has experienced an internal SQL error and cannot continue.

SQL Error:
1054 - Unknown column 'p' in 'where clause'
UPDATE mybb_bankpipe_discounts SET counter = counter + 1 WHERE did IN (p,1)
Please contact the MyBB Group for technical support.

I did receive the correct amount in my Paypal account.

This has been reported already by another member. I'm on my way to provide a fix, possibly this evening with a beta 9 bump as this affects the discounts feature.

The fact that your user couldn't use his PayPal balance doesn't depend on BankPipe. Probably his account has some limitations or doesn't have enough funds.
