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 The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.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

Trading plugin

Hi, going to buy the "Ultimate" package anyway but was thinking of getting the Symposium plugin altered abit for an extra cost.

I basically need a button in the PM area called "Start a trade" where any two users in a PM can press it and and it will take them to a newly generated pm(ticket) where the seller gives a "product" (in my case a key) and his payment details and the buyer will have a timer at the bottom to pay the seller. After payment if the seller confirms the trade will go through and if possible the pm will be stored somewhere for the admins/mods to see.

Please message back with a price.
Thanks, Dan.

Hi, this is quite a specific feature for your own need; unfortunately I do not plan to make it in the official release. I can try to make it into your custom copy, but at the moment I am not available for custom work at least until mid october.

Ah ok. if i buy the Subscription am i allowed to get someone else to implement this feature into the plugin? Needing it soon thats all.

Sure, as long as the developer following you doesn't leak nor uses the plugin, under fair usage.

Remember that Symposium is cross-compatible with external plugins, so you might be still able to have someone create that for standard MyBB PMs, and Symposium will be already compatible out of the box as long as the plugin uses MyBB's PM Datahandler.
