Tedster - The Community loses a Giant.

I am deeply saddened to tell you that long time administrator and member of WebmasterWorld, Tedster (Warren "Ted" Ulle) passed away Friday in his sleep with family near.


Ted was a dear friend of this community and everyone involved. He always made time to talk to people regardless of their circumstances. He was one of the most friendly and approacable people in the entire industry. It was for that very reason that he was voted to be awarded the WebmasterWorld lifetime achievement award last year.


While Ted had been sick for quite some time, he never showed it or bothered anyone with it. His strength while facing it, was inspirational and trademark Tedster.


Ted worked for many of the largest brands on the interent today - from HP to eBay - and yet, he always had time to answer a stickymail question, or pop in a thread to send a new user on the right path.


We will miss him dearly.

Not been around here for a while, but just heard the news from a friend. Very sad day and a huge loss to the community. He was a great man with an incredibly balanced knowledge of SEO. He would always chime in on my threads with little golden nuggets.

My thoughts are with his friends and family. x

The news is really a great shock to me. Missing a person like Ted in this industry really reminds me that how far we have come since the start of SEO as till now I've never felt the growing age of our industry. Contribution made to this industry by great persons like Ted is really a matter of inspiration to new entrant like me here. I've gone through many discussions by Ted and tried to digest them for my development. His absence will be felt here forever.

Tedster:
There are few words that can measure up to describe this wonderful man, so hereís my best shot at it.

One of the kindest and generous people you could know!

I met Ted many, many years ago and we spent a great deal of time together, as would allow. I learnt a great deal from Ted, not just about Internet-related matters, but about people, and life in general.

He was a great inspiration to me, and Iím sure he was to many others that he met in person, and online. I know that he enriched my life with his wisdom and insightfulness. Iím certain this was the same to many thousands of others.

I know he has left this world a better place for his presence.

My thoughts go out to his friends an family.

I will miss Ted greatly, but will often think of the wonderful times we had together.

R.I.P. Ted

Tedster was a fixture of the WebmasterWorld community, and one whose posts have always been a beacon of good sense and generosity. I'm going to miss his wisdom a great deal. There's no doubt he made this place, and the web, far better for his influence. R.I.P.

I was sent a link to this post at 2am this morning. I'm not an emotional person, but hearing of Ted's passing brought me to tears. I want to share my story of first meeting Tedster.

It was during one of the lunch breaks. I was sitting alone going over the schedule to see which sessions I wanted to hit next. Tedster sat down right next to me. "You look like a first-timer." I nodded. "We love first timers. Tell me about yourself." We chatted one-on-one for the next 15-20 minutes. I shared my struggles, he shared his that he had in the past and he "showed me the ropes" on how I could get the most from not just PubCon, but from Webmaster World.

"You see, this is not about who can get rich, this is about how you can enrich your life and those around you...and make a little money too." He said with a big smile at the end and elbowing me. He then got serious and told me that when I made it big (he emphasized "when"), it is important to give back. To help those who are just starting out, or those who just need a little help getting over a hump.

Most people who have enjoyed the success I have been fortunate to have would have kept quiet, but not me. I knew my roots. I knew that I was able to attain the level of success because of people like Tedster who took time out of their life to help me. So I've done the same. Paying it forward.

Very sad. Tedster was one of the first people I met via WebmasterWorld, and over the years was a great friend. He was certainly one of the most helpful and generous people I've met, always willing to assist anyone, whether a newbie or seasoned pro.

R.I.P., Ted - you helped and influenced many!

I only interacted with Ted a couple times during my time here, but even in those couple times he was very helpful. Rest in peace, Ted.

Wow... I'm speechless and heartbroken. I was saddened when he told me of his illness at Pubcon last October, but it didn't prepare me for this.

What an inspirational guy Ted was. I will miss the dinners at Pubcon in Vegas with him, hanging out at the Breeze at TI, and the occasional dinner in NYC just hanging out with him.

He has taught us all so much and done so much for the industry as a whole. A legend in his on time... he will truly be missed by all.

Such sad news to find this morning. Tedster's were some of the first posts I read here at WebmasterWorld, and he was among the first I met at my first Pubcon so many years ago. Tedster will be missed.
