      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.

  1. My favourite vid ever, brings a tear to the eye even 10 years later.. if only..
  2. Never liked it anyway. Full of knts.
  3. Or San Marino...
  4. Off sales prohibited in Lithuania tomorrow due to schools going back so stock up the day! Bars etc open as usual tho...
  5. You have to be absolutely mad not to want Gordon as keeper.
  6. Particularly unimpressed with this, HOWEVER, my hope is that this is a move by Ann. The last few years, the Cathro "experiment", the playing staff that have been brought in, the billions of coaches we seem to have, our abysmal form and pathetic league position, this has all cost money and lots of it. I'm hoping that this is CL finally being made accountable for it, "if" he fails, he's out. If this IS the case then I'm delighted. The WORST case scenario is that he fails miserably and is kept on as a Director and we are just going absolutely nowhere. At all.
  7. Totally agree, his delivery from corners is outstanding. Has to start.
  8. As it says, unfortunately not together but both in with us lot in RE. Happy to sell separately. PDF will be emailed. Cheers
  9. Id like to think that a professional footballer could play on any fitba park.
  10. That'd work for me, then we could sack the Knt
  11. Went to see the first one with David Davies as his guest, was good, Salmond is naturally funny although a fee bit of his script were a little uncomfortable. I believe they're all being filmed.
  12. VERY talented Fifer
  13. Got 2 tickets next te eachother available. Section RE amongst the rest of us! Face value! PM if interested
