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 guys! I just replaced the HID headlight bulbs in my 2008 Lexus IS 350. However, the lights only stay on for few seconds after I turn them on. I already verified my ballasts and my fuses are good. Any advice as to how to fix this problem? Thank you kindly!
- Stroma (or it may have been Napit) gave me a call a month ago to collect their yearly subscription fee. I paid and received the paperwork saying I was registered for another year. No word of any assessor coming though. I wonder if they are forgoing it this year. Has anyone else actually had an assessor visit recently or has your registration been started up again for another year automatically? It was a little amusing during the phone conversation. She said you could choose to go with Napit from now on for roughly £500 or stay with Stroma for one […]
- Any suggestions welcome. The gate company has pulled the draw cord out of the flexi conduit inside the brick pillar and left behind a blockage of tape by the looks of it. The pillar has been back filled so no chance of getting inside. Ive got the bore scope down and you can see the mess. I’ve tried poking a Klien steel draw cord through and also a 10mm tri rated but it’s stuck fast. Its about 200mm into the pillar. It’s my gates BTW…
- Hello, I am going to install garden spotlights. I know from experience that theses lights installed outdoor will develop leaks to the ground or even short circuits especially when wet. Is there a device I can install such that the power automatically switches off when leaks develop? Julian
- Outdoor lighting circuit (domestic) without 30mA RCD additional protection, what code would you give it? I'm leaning toward C2 as (A) outside lights have a habit of filling up with water, and (B) anyone touching it may be in contact with the bare ground. What are your thoughts?
- Anyone used any of the wessex led flood lights from toolstation? Iv just installed a 30w with pir. After install and testing, turned it on and it's very dim with a few leds on the board not lighting at all. Anyone seen this?
- I've installed some recessed lights in my den, where previously there was just a fan with a light fixture running off a single switch. Now there are 4 switches; 2 for the recessed lights and 2 for the fan, at different entrances to the room. But I can't seem to get them running independently, the fan's fees wire will run hot with the lights' switch. I have traced all the wires to definitively label which wire is which, and seem to have isolated the fan's wires. But even if I leave them undone and just wire the 3-way switches for […]
- my lights are dimming everytime an appliance turns on in my appartment and the shared area of the basement next to it. my fridge causes a moderate dimming, my stove (not the burners just the oven) cause a very mild (barely noticable) dimming, and my neighbors washers and dryers outside of my basement apartment cause a significant dim when started and if theres more power load while they are running the lights pulsate (very slighty, its barely noticable). the dimming itself lasts about half a second. occasionaly I hear a click near my breaker(?) box which uses the circular fuses […]
- HI all. I am not an electrician and know only but a few things about it so I want to ask a question . So Chargemaster is supposed to install a home charging unit on my property. Their technician came and said I needed additional electrical work (either an double pole isolation switch or run a 6mm cable from my board next to the main distribution and change a breaker from 16 to 32. I went for the 2nd option as it was cheaper. The other thing he asked was to call my DNO to lower my earthing as my […]
- Been asked to now use a tracker on my own van while working for them. Feel this is totally unnecessary as it’s my own van and I’m self employed. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

- 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 […] The post ElectriciansForums.co.uk Updated October 2020 appeared first on Electrical Advice | Free Electricians Advice Forum.

- 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 […] The post Talk Electrician Forum appeared first on Electrical Advice | Free Electricians Advice Forum.
- 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 […] The post Welcome to Electricians Forums, again? But this time the .co.uk, again? appeared first on Electrical Advice | Free Electricians Advice Forum.
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.
