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 Guys Any advice/ pointers would be appreciated Have ‘pretty big’ new build house we’re wiring from scratch. New supply in from DNO is PME, but we have Ze of 0.51 Are DNO obliged to keep this under 0.35? Wouldn’t be that much of an issue normally if regular size house and meter was attached to house. Before we came along on the scene Client had separate garage block built, meter permanently sited in here. We’ve run a SWA sub-main across to house DB 25metres away, but struggling… Read more
- I design bathrooms and I'm wondering if it's possible to use the same ceiling lights supplied by both a manual switch and a flush ceiling pir going through a concealed dimmer as a night light. Looking at most PIRs and from what I understand, if the bathroom rocker switch L1 supplies the lights normally and L2 from the switch feeds permanent live to the PIR, the SL output of which goes through a dimmer, the night-level lighting will come on whenever the lights are turned off, even when no… Read more
- Hey everyone, hope I've come to the right place. I've so far been unable to find a website to post this up so hopefully it will be fine here. I have a somewhat unusual project I'd like completed which involves an XBOX One console being stripped from its original casing and placed into the shell of a freeview box, therefore creating a "stealth" like XBOX console. I felt it would be necessary to post here as there would more than likely be some electrical aspect to this project. I'm happy to… Read more
- Hi there Just after some experts opinions of this wiring of my consumer unit (image attached). It was installed by one electrician who installed the attached, they were then meant to other jobs in the property but went AWOL. Anyway, we then hired another electrician who finished off the other jobs but commented that this installation quality was appalling and 'don't pay them other than the materials' He then had to redo a lot of the work on the attached. Just wanted a second opinion… Read more
- I have a servo drive that is rated 10AMP. It then has a second rating refered to as it's Peak current : 30AMP 1) Do you size a MCB using the Peak current rating or the standard rating? 2) Again when choosing a contactor would you go for one closest to it's peak current rating or standard current rating? I am also thinking of chucking in a efi noise reduction line filter if someone could guide me a suitable one . Thanks,
- So, I can’t turn off the board, can’t really turn off circuits except the one I am replacing with an RCBO. It’s all singles in trunking no sheaths to trace back to find the appropriate L and CPC, and obviously, nothing is labelled and they definitely aren’t in the correct neutral terminals. Normally I would link out L&N and bell out neutrals as I pull the neutrals out the bar but that is no good on critical live systems. Anyone got any hacks or tricks? I don’t want to tell them it’s a no… Read more
- I will try to explain this as best as I can, Wired 18 downlights in two rows of 9, The downlights were wired in 3core and earth cable so two switch wires could be used to switch the downlights however the customer wished. It was opted for the lights to be switched in banks of two on alternating switch wires (hope that makes sense) So the problem is ALL the lights turn on regardless of which switch wire is on (with the other off) The lights do seem slightly dimmer on the switch wire that… Read more
- Hello, I am looking to get some din rail terminals what I can put a 500 Ohm Resistor in. In the past I have used ones like in the photo attached, I cant seem to find them online now. Can anyone tell me the correct term to find them on RS or any other supplier. Thanks
- Hi all I am after some advice I have an existing single socket with metal back box and 7 wires 3 earth to one point 2 live and 2 neutral I have a new socket with usb that I want to swap to I put all 3 earths in new face plate and the 2 live and 2 neutral in the correct places Switched trip switch back on and it tripped whole system Any advice would be a big help Thanks Denzo
- I have a customer who lives in a grand old house which suffers from damp. The ground floor sockets (2 different circuits) IR test at around 0.3Mohms L/N-E. This was actually 0.01Mohms but I have already done some fault finding and managed to improve it. Most of the back boxes are very rusted and flaking to bits with moisture inside them. As stated, I have done some improvements to the sockets and boxes but this has only managed to get the IR up to 0.3Mohms (L/N-E). I have looked thoroughly… 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 […]

- 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.
