      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. Is this another one that has been invited
  2. Reevesy,you couldn't have Zico more wrong if you tried. In fact you've probably been in his company on more than one occasion 👍🏻
  3. That explains it then, saw you outside chatting to my pals 👍🏻
  4. Did I not see you picking up in Lithuania?
  5. I know people who picked up in Lithuania who haven't been selected and folk who never who have, so just looks like bad luck - or they don't like you 😂😂😂
  6. Apparently the emails are out, stating you've been selected for pick up ................. in Lithuania 🙈🙈🙈
  7. Cheers, I'll look into that
  8. Is anyone heading from Ljubljana to Trieste Airport for the Monday evening flight back to Stansted? Just had a look at transfers & it looks like the flixbus only goes to the town centre which is a good bit from the airport (another hour on a bus), does anyone know of an easier way to do it (other than an expensive private transfer)?
  9. I'll be honest Mindi, I thought it was you Sorry
  10. I've been to the premier league in Glasgow a few times, it was hellish in the SECC but is far better in the Hydro (more space so people not banging chairs into each other) also been to Braehead a couple of times for different events & as sbcmfc says there is far less of a ned element there. I was at the World Championship semi-finals & final in London last year & that was fantastic, I'd never realised how small the venue/crowd is at the worlds
  11. Great to see the name again & hear you're doing well As for the bit in bold, I'm shocked - I thought you never liked the mods With the rest of the post, it sounds very much like you are really just a more intelligent @Scunnered
  12. But how can someone who steps completely out of line be banned if they have paid for a service?
  13. Unfortunately in Lithuania, I never realised it was Kev I was talking to
