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 The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.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

I recently purchased this plugin and its good i like it, but i have some suggestions that will make it better (at least for me)

-1 Add option to force account linking.
-2 Add option to disable the user replace their username/email etc when they have linked their social account.
-3 Add option to show the link button has a requiered or optional field when the user is registering instead of a register/login.

1) this can be added
2) you can already achieve something similar, at least for usernames. You can add social users to a specific usergroup which you will deny to change username in the usergroup's permissions. Something similar for the email would be necessary but this will not be added to Flyover as it doesn't really fit into the plugin's scope
3) yet again you can customize the links how you want by tweaking your templates accordingly. You just have to add, for example, a link to register with Discord in your member_register template, or you can add the <flyover_login_box> variable there as well. Possibilities are endless.

Alright, also is there any way to automatically fill the CPF Username when the user link their account? to avoid the manually sync option? Thanks.

This is not possible at the moment, but can be added to future releases.
