      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. Not in the theme parks but Orlando Ale House on International Drive show all the games, I will be there watching games.
  2. Not sure about boxes but I've got a Sony smart TV which runs on android software platform which enables you to download the Kodi app which runs great. Only a few TVs manufactures run with android so choose choose your TVs wisely if you want to down this route.
  3. Zgemma boxes almost dead as well. Only get Discovery, BT sports, some cartoons and FTA channels.
  4. Thanks EddardStark cashed out at £101.
  5. Pre-match gig cost £12 not £20.
  6. Saturday 5th November
  7. Will also post out recorded delivery if required.
  8. First class rail ticket for sale, leaving Dundee 11.07am to Kings Cross on 10th November and returning to Dundee leaving 10.00am on 12th November. Face value £60. Could possibly deliver Tayside area.
  9. Thank you, Dundee/Kings Cross return first class £60.
  10. What if you haven't taken a flight between Edinburgh and London do you just make it up and hope they give you a special code.
  11. I've been in for a QP v Arbroath game years ago but not hospitality on offer rather board members meeting others etc. Got drinks from a can bar, it was quite big, think this was when south stand was getting done up.
  12. Thanks for replays, now using Ryanair app with smartphone boarding pass. Thanks again.
  13. Going to Majorca as independent travellers for a weeks holiday on Sunday, got outward boarding passes printed out without booking a seat but to print out return boarding pass you need to book a seat at £10 allowing you to print out your return boarding pass at home. If you don't book a seat Ryanair only allow you you print out return boarding pass 7 days and 2 hours before return flight forcing you to reserve a seat at £10. What's the best way to print out boarding pass whilst abroad, find an Internet cafe and print out yourselves or is there another way. Thanks in advance Greig.
  14. Stopped buying the Dundee Courier months ago, too much anti SNP bile for me.
