Hey, guys!

So, by now you all know what this project is and what we want to achieve. However, that "we" is in need of a definition. Who are we? You've undoubtedly seen a few get-to-know topics popping up around here. That's the question these topics address. You can find links to each of our team member introductions here in this index. Once you've read each one, feel free to comment and ask us those burning questions. If you're lucky, we might just answer. ;)

SimpleDesk Team Blog / Online Only Mod
March 09, 2010, 12:30:45 PM
Okay, I shortened the title a bit. :) The full name for this second small mod from the SimpleDesk Team is Online Only Groups in the Group Key. Do you have a lot of membergroups? Do they clutter up your users online area? Check out this mod.

Once applied, this mod alters the group key that is visible at the bottom of the board index to show only groups that have members currently online. Thus, if there are no members of a group online, that group is not displayed in the key.



You may download the mod from the Simple Machines customize site (direct link:

So, it's my turn. :) Hi!

My name is Brannon. No, that's not a typo; the second 'n' is not supposed to be a 'd.' Very few people get my name right the first time, so don't worry about it. ;) Naturally, B is a nickname of mine, which is why I use it on Here, I use a variation of it for the simple reason that I thought "b to the power of a" sounded cool. I'm one of the older team members here at SD; I think only Arantor is older than I am.

My topic over on has a ton of information about me, though I can't guarantee you'll find all of it interesting. Since that topic was posted, I've been promoted to Doc Coordinator for SMF. We're currently swamped with writing SMF 2.0 docs.

When I heard about the SD project, I had to check it out. I was soon to be in the market for a helpdesk solution, and I thought it'd be awesome to have it integrated into the SMF install that I would undoubtedly also have. :) I meandered over here at the beginning of 2010, and the team was kind enough to let me help out in various areas. On January 13, 2010 I was officially asked to join the team and given a few positions from which to choose.

I chose Marketing. :D It's my responsibility to help spread the word about SD. If you got here from a link on twitter or Facebook, that's partly a result of me doing my job. I also help write the official news and announcements that you guys see popping up around here.

Well, I think that will do for now. If you have any questions that you're just dying for me to answer, feel free to ask. :)
