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 never knew Ted personally but whenever I came to WebmasterWorld and found a post by him it was like spending time with an old friend. Courteous, thoughful, articulate and someone who had my best interests at heart.

A very rare treasure and one that I feel privileged to have had as a mentor for all these years.

RIP Tedster.
I came to WW after gap of few days and was shocked to see this post. It was like knowing a very close friend passed away, only difference was we never met.

You were one of the main reason I used to regularly visit this forum. Always looked at you as a guide, philosopher, old friend who was never afraid to post his frank and true opinions.

Its really a personal loss for me, though I have never met you.
Actually this is the first time I have seen your photo in this post.
But You were THE person I always looked forward to reading.

Your posts especially about the search engines were too good and I always took your advice very seriously (even though many times personally I did not agree with you.) and got benefited out of it.
My condolences to the Tedster's family.

Thanks
Rajiv

Ted was outstanding as a community contributor, a mentor, and an industry icon. I learned a lot from him and he's largely the reason I became a moderator here. His wit and easy laugh brought many people into the WebmasterWorld community and his deep knowledge of the industry helped raise the bar.

Ted, I am sad to lose you and wish you peace.

I hope his family reads this.

I have been in the web industry for 11 years now, a member of this forum for almost as long.

I have agreed with Ted, I have disagreed with Ted, but I have always respected what he had to say.

Many of the ways I do things now have been based on his advise. I have even come to his side of thinking on a few issues and he never forced me there.

I am better at what I do as a direct result of having contact with Ted through WebmasterWorld.

Thanks for all you did for me Ted... R.I.P.

I asked Tedster 11 years ago for some advice on a domain name dilemma via a sticky mail. He gave me some great advice, the domain name became a website that changed my life and many others.

Ted's fantastic advice and friendly manner have made the world a better place.

So sad to hear this. I've spoken to him in cities across the country, mostly at PubCons, and he always had time to talk to me.

What a great loss. My most sincere condolences to his loved ones.

Having met and spoken at length with Ted several times at Webmasterworld conferences, he was the last person to PM before I liquidated my online portfolio too relax for a few years, he was an amazing person the world will feel his passing.

I almost always found a chance to talk with Ted at Pubcon over the years and was always impressed with his insight, knowledge and friendliness. That doesn't even touch his incredible contributions online. He will definitely be missed.

Saddened to hear about Tedster.

Only good memories; he was knowledgable, helpful, always reasonable, and had a great snese of humour.

When I was active here, Tedster was one authority I always respected, and one I always heeded.

Thanks, Tedster, for everything. You will be missed.

Aww man, this is very sad news. In a long thread, the best tactic was always to scroll and see if there was a Tedster post.

Thanks Tedster, your intelligence, insight and generosity were a great combination to exemplify what an outstanding net citizen looks like.

My condolences to his family and friends, I only knew of him through webmasterworld but he was always so smart, kind, helpful, and sometimes poetic in his posts. He helped me several times over the years with my websites.

RIP Ted, I was happy to know you.

Ted was as sharp as they come obviously ( and respected by all) but what I will remember most about him is laughing when we dined together or just chatting about life while sharing a pop. A big mind but a bigger person.

RIP Ted.

Although I can't remember the last time I logged in here, I'll never forget Tedster; his generosity of time, his technical knowledge and his 'netiquette' wisdom were all invaluable gifts
