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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
