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 The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.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

Your site image blocks

3 Jun 2020
Do you do the image blocks or is there a person that could be hired to do this for my site?

Which images are you talking about?
Seeker-Smith 4 Jun 2020
Like the tiles on your homepage
Shade 4 Jun 2020
I don’t provide theming services at the moment, I’m sorry.
Seeker-Smith 5 Jun 2020
Okay thanks . I thought maybe they were hired.
Seeker-Smith 6 Jun 2020
Do you mind me asking what you use to create the tiles and images?
Shade 6 Jun 2020
This theme is based off UIKit, a theming framework; the tiles are a standard feature. The images are instead magnified icons which I have selected and added to my custom theme.
Seeker-Smith 9 Jun 2020
Well that's a good hint. Many thanks!
