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 The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.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

Yup, the converter is already there. It just needs to be split so your server does not hang while converting stuff.

Also, the current issues (conversation with self does not show properly nor clears the unread counter, read checkmark is missing from within conversations) have been fixed in my local version and will be applied here tomorrow.

Symposium had to be reinstalled due to the aforementioned fixed issues. The converter does not include the (un)read status for some reason, so you'll probably won't see the checkmarks blue.

One more request would be adding avatars of sender and author next to each message like on social applications.

Can do. Actually this is planned for future betas in which multiple participants will be added.

Current bugs:

1.The default avatar is not set if user has no avatar.

This is how I fixed it
if(empty($user['avatar'])) {
$user['avatar'] = '/images/default_avatar.png';
}
2. The user can't send PM via /private.php?action=send&uid=1

3.is it possible to modify the to field to have a normal input field where user just enters the username instead of ajax one?

Thanks. As for the third question, you can already type whatever you want and not select any username in the dropdown.

If nothing selected, it won't output as the username I typed. Just returns to empty field after moving to the textarea
