Ryan Gordon is a bully and a poor coder...
Ok i have enough of the staff of MyBB always bullying people trying to help them beeing better!

Twelve hours before the end of the countdown for the 1.6 version of MyBB, i sent a Private Message to Matt Rogowski telling him that the poor coding of the downcounter in the header of MyBB site was giving a very bad image of their coders habilities to the public...

I have to tell you that we had an agreement to help each other in the previous days. He responded by telling me that he will transfer my message to Ryan Gordon and hope he will make the corrections as i suggested and taking at the most 3 minutes for a good coder.

The response of Ryan Gordon was insulting, blaming me to make MyBB lose their precious time with stupid things like that. He also told me with a very pretentious attitude how much of a developper he was, like if what he told me was impressive. I can tell that it was not impressive at all!

So this is the retribution for trying to help MyBB community keeping a nice image and be more professional. Now i have enough losing MY precious time helping them!

In french we say " Help a pig and he will come shit next your door!"...

The proof of the bad coding and poor judgment of Ryan Gordon appeared mostly at the end of the countdown were many people were anxiously waiting to see the link to be able to download the new version. It failed miserably because he put the WRONG day in the link to the Blog. How could such an unprofessionnal and unqualified person be trusted as the Developpers Leader of MyBB team?

MyBB have become a community run by kids and for kids, i really do not know how they can have the slightiest hope to get investors interested in them! For sure they lost me, now i will not invest in their community forever.

MyBB will be forked and available on one of our site in just few months with NO bugs and a lot more standard and international features. It will have an auto-update for plugins available from plus an auto-install feature for them. You will have exclusive support from us and many more extra options. The themes available for standard MyBB will be compatible with our own themes as well as most of their free plugins that would be manually installable.

The final product will be a semi-commercial supported product available for arround 50$/year.

So this is my answer to the bad boys of MyBB, continue to act like kids, brats and bullies. Meantime someone else will be more professionnal and divide your world...


P.S. I was not the only good software developper to leave their childish community, many other good developpers left because mostly of the staff and secondly because of the immature nature of their forums. As i heard that other coders hated Ryan Gordon, now he has another person thinking he is an immature, narcissic, unprofessional and low IQ person.

RE: Ryan Gordon is a bully and a poor coder...
Just a quick update on this issue.

More than 4 months after the new version 1.6.0 Ryan Gordon was so eager to release, here is the 1.6.1 release correcting over 90 bug fixes and security issues.

This is an excerpt from the MyBB site :
Quote:MyBB 1.6.1 Release & 1.4.14 Update

By Tom Moore | Published December 15th, 2010 | Updates

MyBB 1.6.1 is now available on the MyBB website and is a security and maintenance update to the MyBB 1.6 series. A patch has also been made available to provide the security updates for the MyBB 1.4 series.

This release is to ensure that all users on MyBB 1.6 have the latest fixes, and to patch two medium-risk security issues within MyBB.

This release fixes several reported issues since the release of 1.6.0, which caused some incorrect functionality of MyBB. These bugs have been fixed to provide a more stable version of MyBB for public use.
What’s fixed in this version?

* Two XSS Vulnerabilities in editpost.php, member.php and newreply.php – Thank you to YGN Ethical Hacker Group for alerting us of these issues.
* 90+ bug fixes

This release has been tested by our Software Quality Assurance group.

I have also to tell about the fact that Ryan Gordon, previously the leader developper, is no more part of the staff of MyBB since 2 weeks ago...

I rest my case...

Because of all the bullying interactions he had with different members on, but now that he quitted this situation is less important... Wink
