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
- A recent conversation with Aico technical enquiring to maybe fit wifi devices in a commercial environment, workshops, business units. Surprisingly, you will need permission from Building control or a Fire Chief before installing them as they are for Domestic or residential use only. Does this apply to all Wifi Fire Alarm Systems?
- I have been given this assignment "the drawing below shows the floor plan of a small factory with the electrical symbols. Explain the process of designing the final electrical circuit that supplies all the elements 6 . The total length of the circuit is 25m. Any assumptions you have to make should be indicated" and I have no idea how to do it. If anyone could help I would be greatful

- Hi I recently had an electrical test done on my flat prior to a sale. The flat won't have had much work done in many many years so i was expecting there to be work needed to be done. The report has identified, amongst other observations, for 3 'Urgent remedial action required' items. I have no experience whatsoever of electrics, so this is gobbledegook to me! I am awaiting a quote, but i don't know how long that will take and i'm keen to understand the potential costs now in order to… Read more
- Hi, Recently I had solar panels fitted and realised how they have done it and I hope someone will be able to give me advice how bad and dangrous workmanship that is. 1. They trilled through the slate roof so hooks rest on the slates and then going into rafters. Basically slate became load bearing. I have noticed couple of broken slates when they damaged it whilst drilling and they used some sort of silicone to glue it together! I can only see 2 slates badly drilled through but I only have a… Read more
- Im asking this question to everyone but in particular to my friend here mister @marconi . I am a professional artist but I am not an electronist like you guys here. That doesnt mean I dont know anything. I know something but I can't raise to some of your standards and knowledge. I'm happy (sometimes fun) to learn something new here and there. – Recently, it was suggested to me to buy a frequency counter, because I got into some crystal oscillators I have in my stock and they have no… Read more
- Looking for one Hager Gland Plate JK1PLATEM Can anyone help, pay cash.
- Hi there guys. I am working as a maintenance electrician in an office block. There are Shower rooms on some of the floors, with electric shower units in the Shower cubicles. These are your ordinary White plastic units with the flexible hose coming out of the bottom. I had to check the supply to them. I was told they were put in about 5 years ago. I noticed that they all have a piece of top cover plate missing, you can look down and see the supply cables coming in to the units through the… Read more
- Hi I'm looking for some advice please. I had an electrician do an EICR on my home at the beginning of April 2021. It then took them till July to send the report. In the report they listed several things with a C2 "Potentially dangerous. Urgent remedial action required." One of the things they listed as a C2 actually went wrong towards the end of June resulting in me having to call out an emergency electrician on a Friday night (not cheap!). If they'd sent me the EICR straight after doing… Read more
- Good evening I am wondering what people would code for a socket within a meter of a sink basin that has a salon style moveable hose attached. There's an obvious risk there but I suppose it is classified as a location containing a bath and or shower etc. The circuit is RCD protected Cheers for any responses

- 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.
