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.

I met Ted for the first time Sunday afternoon at the first Vegas PubCon. Later around midnight I saw him on the patio outside the bar at the Marriott chatting with a few admins and he offered me a chair. I was in awe of the brilliance of this man and picked his brain for hours with a few others. We finally called it a night at 4 am. Finding where Tedster was holding court at Pubcon became my #1 priority everytime after that.

I cannot begin to explain how much I have learned from Ted, and how appreciative I am for all the help and advice he has given me over the years.

Ted's calm and humble, but overwhelmingly influential stature in the community is as Suggarae said,

The fountain of knowledge he shared and his dedication to being an admin here helped to shape and mold some of the best SEOs I know



Rest in peace, Ted.

These are truly sad news! Ted was an amazing guy! His contributions, knowledge, attitude, and personality were one-of-a-kind. I always had utmost respect for him and have learned a lot from him over the years.

Ted, you will be missed. But your legacy will live on forever.

As I tweeted yesterday, Ted was such a modest man. Always there to chat, even with someone like myself who clearly wasn't in his league. A very, very knowledgeable man who will be missed by many. I hope WebmasterWorld and/or Pubcon will find a way to honor Ted.

I had the privilege of knowing Ted for many years. On the many occasions I was fortunate enough to get to speak at PubCon over the years, he would always make a point of saying hi and sharing his thoughts on current SEO topics. He was, absolutely, a genuinely nice person to know. And as many have already pointed out, a mine of information on SEO and all things webmastery. He will be sadly missed.

He will be sorely missed -- one of few voices of reason re Google changes in a world of unproven theories.

He was one of the nicest people I've ever met.
I always enjoyed talking to him and am sad to think I won't have that chance again.

Godspeed Tedster.

Although I never met you, I feel like I have lost a longtime friend.

I know I am not the only one who feels this way.

What awful news.

I didn't know Ted beyond what he posted on this site, but I was always so impressed by his kindness and his willingness to help anybody he could.

It takes a special kind of person to do what he did, the way that he did it. Even when people may have deserved to be treated with disdain, he treated them with patience, class, and respect. It takes someone who is a legitimately good and decent person to do that.

Ted will be sorely missed. I had the pleasure of meeting him at several pubcons.

The first being Orlando and the last being Boston.

His ability to explain things and patience when dealing with perpetual newbies like me was unparalleled.

Some of his posts are required reading for both me and my colleagues - when we start new sites, when we mess up old sites and in general when we feel we've strayed and need to get back to best practices.

He will be missed by many.

RIP Tedster! Deepest condolences to the family.

Ted was one of the reason for asking questions at WebmasterWorld, he always answered me in detail and I always valued his input. We had so many inmails shared. Its a big shock ...

Always appreciated you Tedster. May his soul rest in peace.

I can't believe it, Tedster is no more? I always thought he was a superhuman, someone who had countless hours a day, not 24 like us mortals. He was the first one to answer a new thread. If there were threads with 2 posts, the second one had to be Ted's. I even started doubting he might have people doing the posts for him. All that while he was an active SEO himself? Such a man can't die. You live forever Ted. RIP

So sad to hear - condolences to his family. And such a loss to the SEO community. Ted was one of the most tireless, knowledgeable, and thoughtful members of our community.

Whenever there was a *really* long thread on WebmasterWorld, and I just wanted to get to the core of the issue without having to read every post, I'd just skip to wherever tedster had commented, and knew I was getting the good stuff.

This is so sad and hard to believe. Ted's been such a long time and generous member of WW that you would never think something like this could be possible.

Very sad news.

I never had the pleasure of meeting Ted, but I'd always look out for his name when scanning a thread - his contributions were always worth reading thoroughly.

A big loss to our community.

Tedster was a truly selfless individual and made me more appreciative of the world to know that such people were around.

I'll deeply miss him.
