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 The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.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

    Hey Shade,

    I've only ever gotten emails (like alerts or your announcements) in my junk folder using Outlook. Since they don't let me see if mail is signed or not, like Gmail does, I'm not entirely sure what the issue is. Maybe DKIM signing or no TXT record?

    I do mark them as not spam every tim...
    Site looks fantastic, Shade. I've found it rare that developers have such an eye for design (although I understand you're also a designer). Best plugins for MyBB, best look and feel for MyBB.

    Every time I come back to this site, it makes me want to do a legitimate, fully-focused project using MyB...

    I had the same problem after upgrading from PHP 5.5.9 to 7.1 — blank admin theme. I just deleted the files and could access the admin CP again. I just tried the latest version (I believe it was updated since I installed it, not entirely sure). The same issue persists.

    It's not a big issue for me,...

    Can you provide your board URL and a test user in a chat PM @Tecca? That's oddly unexpected. Thank you!

    Details sent! EDIT: Didn't realize you said chat PM, I sent it via normal PM.

    I get a 403 forbidden message when trying to upload (not using imgur).
    POST 403 (Forbidden) dropzone.js:1386
    Edit: works fine when I select the Imgur option (I had set it up just in case I decided to use it).

    Also, side note: p...
