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
- I have this hall light controlled by two switches, one on the top of the stairs, one on the bottom. After years of working correctly, it intermittently would not respond to one or the other switch. It has 3 way switches and i replaced them following the old wiring. It does the same thing. ITs hard to explain but you can turn it on and off fine from the lower switch. You can do the same with the upper, but depending on where you leave one of the switches, the other will suddenly not control the light. As an example, […]
- Hi All, Looking some advice. Had someone install a SWA cable to exterior outhouse. In the outhouse everything.looks.great, new consumer board and three double sockets all installed and looking good. My.concern is with how the SWA cable has been terminated at the main board in the house. Surely the SWA should have been terminated into a junction box or something similar, then a feed to the new RCBO's? Should I be concerned or leave as is?
- I’ve got a bunch of 230v stuff in one place, a 230v device In another and an inherited data cable in a duct between them. Don’t think it’s an option to draw a new mains rated cable due to damage to the duct but the data cable is good. So how do I use a relay contact one end to trigger another relay at the other? 5v psu and a 5v relay at the receiving end??
- I've just started out on my own coming into my 3rd month. The first month and half I was mega busy working 5 or 6 days every week and now I'm currently doing 2 or 3 jobs a week. My number has been passed on from clients I've worked for and I've spoken to a few builders and plumber I know. I've also ordered a load of leaflets that I can post on a street when I do a job and created my facebook so people can leave reviews. What were other people's experiences starting out? How long did it […]
- Anyone got any advice on what to do please? I'm owed nearly £400 for various work for a customer. The work included replacing light fittings and accessories, all of which I supplied. I also, soon after doing this work, did two EICRs for her. To cut a long story short she was very unhappy that I'd failed them both, despite being for very good reason. Unknown to me she got another electrician to do the inspections a few days later who apparently passed them both, which I find hard to believe. When I sent the invoice she replied and said […]
- Was just watching a video of an RCBO install and found it weird that the breakers are double pole yet still have to have a fly lead. Why don't we do it like this: Ignore the gibberish coming out of his mouth and take a look at the unit. L+N coming from the supply, feeding the bottom of the first RCD. All the RCD's are linked together by the linking bars running down the left, giving them all L+N feed. The feed then goes through the RCD out the top, into the bus bar that's linked across the tops of […]
- Listening to the radio the other day, and UK govt has announce no new gas boilers to be sold by 2035 and everyone should go with ASHP… £5k grant to get one..Let me add… only england and wales. We'll stick with peat up here for now. The following questions. Probably easy to answer, but just pretend i'm an idiot for 5 minutes They work by extracting any residual heat in the open air, compressing it and using it to heat the home…. so why are they outside and not inside, extracting already warmed air? They dont work very well with […]
- So in recent months I see Tom Nagy , Nick Bundy and now Artisan have all upgraded and got proper office space and storage units etc etc I am pleased (yes genuinly) to see so many fellow traders to be kicking on and building up their business empires My old boss in London started his business from a sh!tty old unit in Fulham in the late 60s and now runs an electrical contracting business employing about 45 full time staff (about 5 office and 40 sparks last time I spoke with them) Keep it up lads
- Hi guys is there any regulations regarding 110v centre tapped transformer transformer circuits being used outside (rcd protected) also if the transformer states 3000Va but a continuous rating of 1650Va am I right in thinking it can only carry 15amps before the transformer overloads?
- Hi there, I probably shouldn't be here as I am not an electrician. I do have an A level in physics and I am a server engineer for the ambulance service so have at least a basic understanding of how our power infrastructure works! I have only really joined this forum to hopefully find old (sorry… more experienced! ) engineers who may have used some of the old vintage meter locks I collect, amongst others. TBH It may even be something that shouldn't be publicly available, in which case… no probs. I was just interested in how the old tamper […]

- 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. Then there are the forums, the blogs, the training courses, […]
- 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.
