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 The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.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

    Wow I don't get it... This site loads proper fast even though you have like 50 plugins.
    Wow awesome feature man. Some plugins of yours should be premium man. Because alot of PAID forums don't even have most of these features. Awesome.

    Devs may not be active but some users are actually creating their own plugins (like shade) and giving good support... Flarum has one of the best community (not in size).

    @Shade Yeah. Your plguins are awesome mate, I'll leave good feed back.

    Wow a big response from a little post. Thanks.

    Hi, @Shade
    Yeah, I agree MyBB is one of the best free open source forum software (It MAY beat one or two paid softwares). But don't you think creating/making your own software you can add more and better features. Like for example, look at Flarum.....
