Farewell

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 The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.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

@Shade, if you install the plugin with 2 letter avatars and then change it to 1, how do you actually get it to change the avatar to only show 1 letter? I tried purging my CDN and reloading the cache in the admin cp, just to see if it would help and it didn't.

Font-size has become fontsize in a recent update of their APIs. Open inc/plugins/letteravatars.php, line 319:

$remoteFile .= '&font-size=' min(max(0.1, (float) $mybb->settings['letteravatars_fontsize']), 1); 
Change font-size to fontsize. Alternatively, you can use the standard font-size of 0.5 in Letter Avatars' settings.

@Shade thank for fast response. Do I need to update old avatars? I applied the change.

I think it applies only to new members. Do I need to remove letter avatars of old members?

Yes, you will need to remove all avatars and reapply. This can be done in two clicks by using the buttons in the plugin's row.

I double checked, and it seems like their servers are changing at the moment. We should wait and see how the API will change as it looks like the endpoint is different from region to region.
