      TAMB CLOSURE ANNOUNCEMENT   09/06/2017

      Following diminishing numbers of visitors to TAMB and the subsequent reduction in TAMB income, it is the intention for TAMB to close definitively from 1st November 2017. TAMB can no longer generate enough advertising revenue to cover the costs of around £300/month to pay for the dedicated server that hosts the TAMB software.  The dedicated server is also older equipment and no longer maintainable, so at some point it would be necessary to migrate the TAMB to a new cloud-based platform. This is quite a large job and would take some time to do. We feel it wouldn't be a worthwhile task given the reduction in traffic and usage of TAMB.  It is the opinion of the TAMB Team that the days of messageboards have largely gone, being overtaken by other platforms. Thank you to all users of the TAMB over the years, and we look forward to seeing you on some other online forums in the future. Since announcing the closure, a number of questions have been asked.

      This is not a "boot in the arse" to Board members to increase traffic.

      It’s worth pointing out to any people wanting to take on the TAMB that they will quickly outstrip any “free” message board system. That’s what happened with the pre-2003 TAMB and also happened during the “current TAMB” in 2003 – 2004. 
      It’s all about the number of concurrent users online. At a point yesterday there were about 150 users online – Invision would be charging $130 per month for that. (https://invisioncommunity.com/buy)

      We would be prepared to do a handover of the domain names that we currently hold to non-profit making group who seriously wants to organise a new TAMB and has the skills and numbers to do it. This would not include existing software or server. We are especially keen that the platform or the name do not fall into the hands of what we can only call bawbags. We need not mention names, but I'm sure members can think of a few. Any new group would have to start from scratch and give TAMB a complete bottom up ‘makeover’ and make themselves financially viable.   We have a couple of people who are willing to offer advice to any serious players.

      Further to the Closure Announcement   09/07/2017

  1. Nah, seriously it doesn't. Well, it may some. He couldn't cut it, he moved on and is doing well. Happens often. Morelos is better.
  2. Aye, so he will get at least 1 chance to look the part
  3. Looks like it may well be against Griffiths and Sinclair, before Moult.
  4. There was an image of a ship next to it, or it might have been a video. So its def there. It didn't seem that tall in the picture, so not sure why an Ark was required.
  5. Ice wall I think was the answer, but could be wrong.
  6. Alves oot. Will change my 1-4 to a 1-5.
  7. I was impressed with them tonight. Chalk and cheese from last season.
  8. The latest from the SPFL. The SPFL Board is disappointed in the Scottish FA’s decision not to participate in an independent review. The SPFL Board still believes that an independent review, promoted jointly by the Scottish FA and SPFL, would have resulted in a better understanding of the procedures and processes adopted by football’s governing bodies. Such a review would also have enabled any lessons learned to be implemented for the future benefit of the game in Scotland. SPFL Chairman Murdoch MacLennan commented: “The SPFL Board has been clear that any meaningful review would have had to be carried out in association with the Scottish FA and with the full and active co-operation of both organisations. "The SPFL Board has therefore concluded that it cannot, by itself, take forward an effective independent review."
  9. When is the draw for the semi's? is it after the game tonight?
  10. I have a sneaking feeling too. But if I was to put money on it, would put it on Aberdeen.
  11. You answered your own question on point 1. My advice to Pedro, as a starting point, would be to listen to McCoist, then do something totally different, then build on that.
