      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. I thought the story was that bus 8 did not turn up in Bratislavia & the folk on that bus did not get to the game or if they did they arranged a taxi, surely the best way to solve this is for them to club togethr & take the party to the small claims court I am sure they would win does not coat to much either
  2. hi mate I ran two buses the cost per head was £11 a skull, I charged 12 quid a skull the excess monies was dontated to TASA, I made no personel gan from my buses ( paid the same as everyone else).
  3. running buses is a nightmare My buses fecked off after they dropped us off they eventually turmed up after the game we had a wait then a couple of false dawnsfor thr second bus but it turned up but I was n the phone to the bus compay kicking up all the time the first bus was filled but no way was i going till the second bus turned up, i it did not i was piling everyone onto one bus, now the buses that left later for the gme was silly it's common sense to get there as early as possible it gives you time to get onto the bus company if one does not turn up but to laugh about it is fecking ridiculous those 50 odd people missed a game they travelled thousands of miles to see it aint a laughing matter
  4. how about this one Ormond, he' was threatining legal action & mod 11 has responded magnificently Board Downtime By Mod11 09/28/2016 We apologise to anyone inconvenienced by the downtime experienced last night - especially to anyone who thought they had been thrown off the board due to threatening legal action. The outage was due to our server providers replacing a faulty component.

      Hey Jock - Not sure whay this is on my 'status page' and don't really know how it all works to be honest!! But, I take it the exchange above relating to a message from Speckyg is a reply to him!?? You said "You are not on my bus you told me you are going with someone else". I take it that this is to speckyg (John and Mary Gillies) and nothing to do with me?? :)
