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 The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.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

    Flarum looks awesome if you just want a modern, straightforward bulletin board software. But you can build pretty much any kind of community you can imagine with MyBB. It's a shame so few are actually doing so!

    The main reason is that I want to keep some features restricted to this site. Many forums have unique features, this can be one of them.

    I obviously have a ton of respect for your work and I think you should do as you please with it. Howe...
    Nice implementation but doesn't display a lot of useful info. I agree with the suggestions to add more options like Send PM.

    [quote]Send PM and add to buddy list are not going to be there since the profile already lacks on content (still, but not in the future), adding them to hovercards would mean...
    Really nice. Hope you will consider/be able to release it as an extension to MyAlerts someday. :)
