      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. Started to panic at the rate they were flying out at!!! Just bought 592 to 596.
  2. Think it was carlsberg, john smiths and strongbow!
  3. 5 of us did the Escape Lounge at T3 Manchester October 2015 on our trip to Faro. Food was actually quite good and plenty of it. Soup, pies, sausage rolls, sandwiches, salads, biscuits, cakes etc. Tea coffee. Self service to bottled beers, soft drinks. Basic spirits free anything else at a premium!
  4. Just to confirm this is available! To be honest did not expect any takers!! Am going to cancel it tomorrow pm and will get the taxes back which account for 90% of the cost! Obligatory admin fee will cut in to refund!
  5. I may have one return BA flight Glasgow to London City! ( Will know definitely later today) It's leaving Thursday 19:50 back Sunday 19:10!! It's a group booking so no worries about name change etc! Cost £120 now well over £200 open to any sensible offers!! PM me
  6. We don't have any tickets in those green sections for £35! See link below for the areas where we are getting tickets. http://www.supporters.scottishfa.co.uk/england-v-scotland-faqs/
  7. My estimation for where tix are likely to be seated are as follows: £35 ones first few rows behind the goals! £45 either lower tier behind the goals between the goals and corner flag or upper tier more than one third of the way up! £55 either lower level in the corner area or front third of the upper tier! £65 lower tier from corner flag towards half way line!
  8. Leaving at just before 5:15am if any late takers!
  9. Had been wondering why Ryanair had a big gap in their schedules to Vilnius in July and August. Reason is Vilnius airport is scheduled to be closed for almost 5 weeks from mid July to mid August. Hopefully all completed before we go! www.vilnius-airport.lt/en/news/?id=1308353
  10. Sold oot!
  11. But others may not have realised! Hard enough getting reasonable travel (times and prices) sorted without building double headers in!!
  12. Just remember we are at home on Thursday the 5th!!
  13. Just bought 5 Numbers 1014 to 1018!
