Tedster - The Community loses a Giant.

 8:07 pm on Jun 30, 2013 (gmt 0)

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.

Just read the email newsletter from Webmaster World and was devastated to hear the news about Ted.

My latest WW StickyMail was from Ted. I can't say I knew him very well on a personal level, but, in the few interactions I had with him, he was always extremely courteous and helpful.

Ted was a wonderful human being, a true legend who will never be forgotten.

You will be missed. RIP Ted.

I am deeply sorry to hear the news. I leaned so many things from his posts. Rest in peace, Ted.

So sorry to hear. Will truly be missed.

At Webmaster World Orlando, I liked to hangout outside the front doors and Ted was often out there smoking. Watching how he interacted with people I was amazed by him. Most of the SEOs there spooned out information and kept the good stuff to themselves. But standing out there chatting with and watching Ted, it seemed he would happily give all his secrets to anyone who walked up to him just to be helpful. I was in awe because he was so open and his attitude was so unique for that crowd.

So sad, he helped so many of us, R.I.P Tedster

R.I.P Ted, it's a huge loss to the community.


 7:18 am on Jul 9, 2013 (gmt 0)

He was so generous when I asked him so many questions through sticky mail. He was very helpful on all my post. He's a great person. We all miss you, Ted. RIP - I cannot control my cry for him, I am not a girl. But somewhat I feel so saddened for a person whom I never met or never thought he would be over 30.

Sad news. RIP Tedster

May God Bless His Soul. Ted we all miss you. Thanks for being so upfront, frank, outspoken and approachable.

Really feeling bad to miss him :(

A giant indeed. Fare well Tedster.

Sorry to hear, much love to his family and friends.

Thank you Ted for all your help and advice. RIP.

I've only met him face-to-face once but was impressed by his kindness. I'll miss him.

...will miss you Ted!

so very sad to hear this. thoughts and prayers to his family. WebmasterWorld will never be the same.

Sorry to see him go, he was an excellent & unique contributor to this industry. The insights I got from his posts have been very valuable. Condolences to his family & friends.

Very sad news. I spent a lot of time with Ted in London and other venues. Truly a real gentleman as well as a superb expert in what we strive to do here.


 7:58 pm on Jul 9, 2013 (gmt 0)

It was always an honor to have "Tedster" reply to a question. He will truly be missed.


 8:18 pm on Jul 9, 2013 (gmt 0)

While cleaning out my mailbox I found a link to a thread that tedster had responded to. He said in two sentences what would have taken the rest of us three paragraphs.


 12:05 am on Jul 10, 2013 (gmt 0)

I've been away with other business the last year or so... checking in from time to time... but was shocked with the news Tedster had passed! Dang (another word is better) sorry to hear that! Always bright, brilliant and boyish, eager to share his love of machines and code. Helped me a number of times. Condolences to his family and friends, and to all of those here at webmasterworld who benefited just by having shared a thread with him.


 10:09 am on Jul 10, 2013 (gmt 0)

You will be missed Ted. RIP.


 12:49 pm on Jul 10, 2013 (gmt 0)

Ted was a Legend!


 2:46 pm on Jul 10, 2013 (gmt 0)

The kindest, most selfless mod I never met. Happy trails and may your huge cache of most excellent karma light your path...


 8:15 pm on Jul 10, 2013 (gmt 0)

This is sad :*(

Rest In Peace Master Tedster


 10:01 pm on Jul 10, 2013 (gmt 0)

I learned so much from Ted, we had a few good debates. He will be missed here on webmasterworld dearly.


 11:05 pm on Jul 12, 2013 (gmt 0)

Real shock to hear about Ted. Spent many a night talking with Ted in many cities while pubcon was starting up. RIP.


 11:48 am on Jul 14, 2013 (gmt 0)

Ted taught me so much and he was always so kind! I'm very sad to hear of his passing. The community did indeed lose a great man. We were lucky to have known him.

My deepest to condolences go out to you, Brett, and to all his close friends here at WebmasterWorld.


 1:31 pm on Jul 14, 2013 (gmt 0)

So sorry to hear this, and wish I checked in more often to send more timely condolences to friends and family.

I had several one-on-one messages back and forth with Ted... My wife, who never laid eyes on this website, was even saddened by the news after hearing how often I had spoken of the kind man that helped a stranger through so many questions. Never once asking for anything in return.

The industry, and this forum has lost a great advocate and calm voice. He will be missed for sure.
