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
- Hi, I have five setups in my home (Kitchen, three hallways and back porch lights) that have two light switches (one at each end of the room or, with the back porch lights, switches in two different rooms). I am replacing all of the switches in the home to a different color. One of the hallways and the back porch lights work perfectly. However, the other two halls and the kitchen I can't get to work right for the life of me. I figured I would start with a hallway and see if anyone can help. I'm going to insert […]
- Hi Everyone, My name is nathan. I am a newbie, just completed my bachelor degree in electrical engineering which has quite a broad scope. I recently taken up attachment works which possibly deals house wiring and minute equipment repairs which I am begining to like. A question I woukd like to ask you seasoned pros in domestic house wiring, is when turning on the main switch(MS) after a new installation. At times, when MS is switched on, power is not received, in that, lights and connected loads remain off. However, after switching it off again and then turning it on […]
- This just came up in my YouTube list.. Not seen them before.
- Hi everyone, my am2 is fast approaching and i need help with understanding how s plan wiring works. I understand the different parts in the system and how its wired but i cant seem to figure out how the solar sustainable element fits into the system. Also can anyone let me know anything else i should look out for during my am2. Many thanks in advance
- I am looking for a single gang outlet + dimmer switch combination. Does such an item exist? It's for a kitchen backsplash the outlet would be unswitched and the dimmer/switch would control a light over the sink. The whole backsplash is on a GFI so I don't need a GFI in this device. -Kevin
- The house I purchased a few years back came with a gas oven. I am looking to upgrade to a duel-range oven (gas top, electric oven) and therefore am looking to install an outlet where the stove is. My plan is to install the outlet myself and run the wire to the box and then pay a professional to actually tie it into the box. I also plan to run the wire through the crawl space and across the floor truss (as the oven is on the opposite of the house where the electrical box is). Two questions: 1) is […]
- Ideally I would like to design rooms with furniture in mind and such that there aren't any outlets on exterior walls. But as far as I know, every state requires outlets to be no more than 12 feet apart. I don't want to be restricted. Is there a way around this? Here are some ideas. I often see on real estate listings that a bedroom is "non-conforming". Can I claim that every room in my house is a closet? Can I claim that I will be off-grid, and then put in a few outlets and get a power hook up […]
- Have very old meter coming into my cottage. I need to replace the meter. There are many meters at Home Depot. How do I choose the right meter and meter pan? I have a 240 Vrms service @ 100amperes. Thank you. Fred
- Hello! My electrical utility has decided to take our power away – occasionally – to prevent fires. So I have ordered a modest backup generator. To conveniently power the house without running extension cords everywhere, I need a transfer switch. I have tentatively identified the switch I'd like to use – a Reliance exterior-rated unit, 30A, 10 circuits. It's quite wide, and will intrude into the space occupied by a telephone/cable box. But it will work if I mount it to the side of the house on 2" spacers. The main panel is flush-mounted in the exterior stucco wall. There […]
- I have an electrical box on my kitchen wall that I'd like to get rid of. Can I tape the wires up (separately), push them back in the box, and spackle over it, or is that prohibited as is the case of a conventional 110/120v electrical box? I may leave some baseboard-mounted telephone connectors in place in other parts of the house. There are no 110/120v house-wires in the box (photo attached). I could put a blank cover over it, but I prefer not to be able to see it. Thanks!

- 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 […]

- 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.
