https://talk.electricianforum.co.uk – The UK’s Friendliest Electrical Forum
First Forum to 1.5m Posts
We have 1.5m posts, they don’t have 500k yet and they’ve got some right stupid threads going to try increase post count
First Forum with 45,000 members
We erase unused account, allow members to erase their account, have zero spam accounts get through, and have 45,000+ genuine members. They have sub 25,000 and nearly half automated bot accounts with zero posts.
It would cost them the price of a .com domain name to change their whole website over to a new unique name of their own that saves no confusion.
It is possible to 301 redirect all old traffic to the new domain. We just did it with our .co.uk to .net change.
We would have chosen another brand name but WE HAVE 12 DOMAINS OF THE SAME BRANDING YOU NUMPTIES!
Get your bloody own and stop riding on the back of our traffic ya fuckers.
Stick with a .co.uk if you wish
Just make sure you’ve used more than a single brain cell and a tiny bit of thinking power so you can come up with a name of your own instead of jumping on the back of somebody else’s branding.
“I was confused I thought I’d signed up to electriciansforums.co.uk and then found the other domain and tried to login to that instead”
Janet Morris; genuine case
“I signed up to electriciansforums.co.uk in 2007 and then in 2008 thought the domain had changed, I quickly learnt it was a criminal copycat”
Willie Brown; actual member who’s pissed off still to this day
“I think we should just DDOS the fuck out of them during all their busy periods until their hosting costs more than its worth because they need to outbandwidth the traffic which is very costly”
Sean Fisher; ethical hacker
Let’s work together to stop you being a problem for us
We will help you FOC to fuck off onto a domain name of your own. If you can only use domain names that we can think up, we can think up a few for you and you use your little fat fingers to pick one out of a hat – ya cunts
- Please help, just had a domestic EICR undertaken, a C2 issue: Consumer Unit does not meet minimum I.P rating, what does this mean and how do I check this out? how expensive to rectify? thanks!
- Getting ready to install a 22KW Generac on my home and just had a question to clear up. I have 400A service running to two 200A main panels. I will be installing two 200A transfer switches, mainly because I had 1 already and the 400A is like $2900.00 vs $700.00 for another 200A one. I know that I will need to turn my two main panels that will be fed by the two transfer switches into sub panels, seperating the neutrals from the grounds. Between the two panels I have about 42 circuits so in… Read more
- Bulb Energy, which started in 2015 and was one of the first providers to offer renewable energy at affordable rates, has gone into special administration due to the spike in wholesale prices. This means that for now the insolvent company is continuing to run as normal whilst administrators are brought in and the company… Read more
- Hi Guys On my list is sorting this right old mess out, along with a DB upgrade. Question is anything I need to aware about with this Tesla set up, guessing some sort battery set up (not come across one yet) So I dont blow myself up and/ or mess up any of it up Thanks Sy
- Haven't been on here for a while, so sorry if this has been discussed before. BS7671 2018 + A2 Regulation 421.1.7 recommends AFDDs for "single-phase AC circuits supplying socket outlets…" (requires in certain premises). My intention is that from September 27th I will recommend them to customers (in practice I already do in some situations) and require a signed waiver if they don't want the expense. At least I will do so for the actual Sockets Circuits – typically ring final, serving a… Read more
- Hi All Had an enquiry about installing a generator fed UPS to a house. I have a minimal amount of experience with UPS but am certainly no expert, the ones I've been involved with were manual changeover and didn't have anything attached (generator was to be hired in the event of a failure). There's a very good chance I won't be getting involved in this job as it seems a bit like a can of worms but thought I would see if I could increase my knowledge in this area. The customer is purchasing… Read more
- Those week I have mostly been fitting 20 x 10W flood lights on the sloping edge of a converted mill ceiling, nothing is straight, nothing level. The supply to the lock up unit has just been supplied by the landlord along with a new DB with two circuits (lights & sockets) This is the second lot of work I've done here, in both cases the landlord supplied the board and supply new. The agreement with the landlord is any works we do is tested and our incomplete certificate is amended to the… Read more
- 18th 2nd amendment comes in, in Sept. AFDDs are in it. To be fitted on socket circuits of 32A and above. To be fitted in residential blocks of 6 floors and above, care homes and the likes. Are these mandatory for everyone? If say you have a 17th edition CU, do you have to update to AFDD? AFDDs integrated with an RCBO which appear the perfect fit and fix, but £150 each. Wylex NXS 25A 30mA SP & N Type B AFDD & RCBO Order online at Screwfix.com. Effective protection against fires started by electric serial arc faults that cannot […]
- Hi Guys, I am just changing my plug top oven over & gas hob and noticed the following: 32AMP Breaker > 6MM Cable > Cooker Switch 45a > 4mm cable > Double Socket which powers both. 13a Plug Top Oven replacing the previous same plug top. Gas Hob and just powers the igniter. Is this right or do i need a sparky in to replace this? Thanks in advance!
- Homeowner here, working on my fish pond power supply. (Fish pond came with the house and I'm wanting to update.) Currently 220v comes off of a 2 pole 20A breaker and goes to a fused disconnect. From there, it splits into two 110v circuits and powers two outlets where pumps are plugged in. I have a new pump that I'd like to plug into 220, and then have the additional outlets, and all tied to the fused disconnect so I can shut all the power off to the pond from one location. Question: Do I… Read more

- Easy MCS and their competitors. Through years of managing electrical advice websites we have found one or two things to be factual in all cases when reading a blog. One; if it says ‘world leading’ or ‘number one’ then it nearly always is NOT world leading or number one. Electricians Forums, The Worlds Number One […]

- There’s a UK Tiling Forum knocking about that has a bit of competition from Tilers Forums. Pre-2006 there was only a couple of tiling advice forums online, and one was TileForums.com, owned by a training centre called Professional Independent Training Techniques who ran tiling courses and sold tiling tools. The other one was John Bridge’s […]

- Tiling Advice and Tiling Project Management with a Personal Approach When you’re looking online for Tiling Advice you get a minefield of information, usually online shops with blogs that just want to tell you about ‘The Top 5 Bathroom Tiles This Season’ and the likes.

- I’ve updated the .co.uk domain to include its own blog, tell us what you think about it. Nothing too fancy. It’s using a free template via WordPress. It has its own stats now and some handy basic blog posts so far but I have plans for it to be much much more than what it […]

- Talk Electrician Forum is one of three forums we have. We started in 2006 on ElectriciansForums.co.uk and soon after another forum popped up ripping off our domain, theirs was ElectricianForum.co.uk, which they then changed to Talk.ElectricianForum.co.uk and called it TEF to dodge takedown notices from us. It’s still far too close of a domain name […]
- Okay, so we’ve had some confusing changes over the years. Usually just smilies on the forum changing. Or the automatic post merging system that wound up a few dozen big burly blokes and some even burlier women also. Our domain used to sit on this .co.uk here that this blog is being posted on. But […]
So a guy sees new electrical forum, joins it, kicks around on it and gets a ban, creates his own and doesn’t have much between the ears so the only name he can come up with is one exactly the same as the one he’s been banned on. Did he A) choose it to ride off the back of it B) choose it because he was banned from the first one or C) all of the above?
Whichever it was, his website isn’t his own, he’s just using it until it is claimed by the owner of the brand he’s borrowing without permission.
