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 The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.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

Problems with registration

13 Jul 2020
Hello there.
Im having issues with registration through hotmail. Email to activate account never reached, had to make this new account with fake email to be able to download mods.
Besides that, your resend email page didn't have the right template, and also, even leaving the field email empty, the inline notify mod shows a success message.

My other account is "kind", please activate it manually.

Besides that, a truly beatiful forum.

Unfortunately this doesn't depend on me, but on Sendgrid, the mail handler I'm using. Especially hotmail servers block requests from time to time.

I will fix the resend email page, thanks for reminding me about this.

I have merged your accounts.
