Professional Electrician These are nearly always for the Professional Electrician. And their fellow peers of course. To share electrical advice at a more skilled electrician-style guy or gal. That's not to say some budding sparkys may have some exceptions and limited access. Most of all - it's a professional electrician who is found hanging around in these question and answer forums.

Electrical Videos; Please add all the videos you have to the forum

We've had our Electrical Videos section running for a while now and we proudly host a massive 4 videos. Whaaaat? Only 4?!?!​

Apparently so. Just the 4 then. The rest being embedded.

Electrical Videos | Electricians Forums Videos

Uploaded media: 4
Embedded media: 116
Comments: 62

Wondering if we can all give this a bit of a nudge and add all and any electrical videos you have on your devices. Perhaps you have already added them to YouTube or some other media site and can simply quickly embed them to our forum so our members can comment on them without needing to be registered to the existing host etc.

Also, the new forum software has an awesome layout for the videos and comments. The developers are really working hard on this area of the forums as every single device that's viewing forums these days is also a video camera.

How to add an electrical video to the forum​

To add an electrical video to the forum simple visit the Video area, and click "Add Media".

Hoping we can double our 4 videos this month lol :D

Will see eh?

Minimise Forum Categories That Bore You

turn-categories-on-off.PNG

There's now a toggle in each main orange forum category, click it, it'll minimise all forums within it for you.

You can always toggle back if you want to look for a forum you think might be in one.

This will NOT hide the posts from Whats New tab etc. It just literally lets your browse the forum homepage quicker.

There are some forums that are setup for SEO and whatnot, that just don't warrant keeping really and I'll soon shift them around a bit and confuse you all again but until then, toggle them. :)

Cheeeeeeers.

P.S. Some more update information coming soon, but they are already in action so you might see them yourself from time to time. ;)

ElectriciansForums.net Advertisements Have Been Reduced, And Will Be Reduced Moreso Soon

As always, you can either remove all Google ads and sponsors ads by subscribing to the forum: Subscribe to ElectriciansForums.net and Get No Ads! - https://www.electriciansforums.net/threads/subscribe-to-electriciansforums-net-and-get-no-ads.176537/

You can also use ad-blockers. That's fine with me.

Another way before today was to ensure your post quality was awesome, and you'd automatically get stuck in the Esteemed Member group, which had about 75% less ads than everybody else (it should have been nearer 90% less but I'd screwed something up - sorry about that!).

Though from today, those with X amount of posts should get no Google ads. The X is a figure that today right now is set at 1000 posts. So the day a person hits 1000 posts, all Google ads should go. Esteemed also, even if less than 1000 posts.

And that figure will change as I run testing on revenue. There will be a sweet spot somewhere around the 450 mark I'm guessing but I'd not want to remove ads for people then back down on that and stick some back again. That'd annoy you even more than having them but getting used to them.

So I'll give it a few days then make it 900, then give it a few and make it 800, and so on. And then eventually end up with a sweet spot for this forum where I make some money for food and rent, I'll never be a millionaire, but I also wont annoy people.

Even I hate Ads. Yet my whole revenue comes from them. So needs must. :D

Sponsors ads will always be knocking around. Their posts knock around even if you subscribe ( though most of their ads go, sidebar ones etc ).

But you need to support those guys like they support this forum because without them, we wouldn't be here at all.

The forum looks ace when you're a subscriber - Subscribe to ElectriciansForums.net and Get No Ads! - https://www.electriciansforums.net/threads/subscribe-to-electriciansforums-net-and-get-no-ads.176537/ - here is the link again. You literally browse just the forum as if it doesn't have any funding source and it's somehow massive and has huge running costs, but your small annual or monthly payment covers your portion of the costs.

But the forum looks really nice with no ads at all. Unfortunately I browse with no Google ads (that's a Google violation for account owners) but all sponsors ads, so that I can check for things going wrong with them and move them around when they're not loading at the right size or speed etc etc.

Thanks to all users for hanging in there. I know you've moaned a bit but I know you've also understood that at this time, it was just needed. Used to be if you logged in, no Google ads, even if you never posted. Can't see them days coming back. But I can keep lowering the X count as long as I've got food on the table. :)

Thanks again guys and gals.

Dan, Lou and my Daughter - who all ate because of your patience. :)

Install Electricians Forums App!!!!!!

Screenshot_20201008-143021_Chrome.jpg
On a mobile device click the menu then click install app.

Done.

You get push notifications amongst other things.

Its a progressive web app not an app available in an app store. That just means its web-based and uses our hosting rather than Google or apples.

But its largely basically an app.
