      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.

      Further to the Closure Announcement   09/07/2017

  1. I'm not on the board anymore but from time to time I have a look at things without signing in.

    Just to let you know that not everyone disagrees with you or rejects your beliefs.

    Good fighting the good fight, and it's a laugh to see you run rings round them !

    Stand Free,

    Kenny

      Much appreciated my Friend!

      Sorry that you aren't on the board, but I do look forward to the day we meet!

      (Have you thought about coming over to AFC Chat? Posters of your calibre are hard to come by.)

      Best wishes, Kenny.

      Hi Scotty,

      I'm actually using Pie & Bovril these days (although not posting nearly as much)...there's a much larger number of posters and a really good mix from all clubs, so it's much more difficult to play the man rather than the ball than it is on the TA board. 

      My user name is 'Bob Mahelp'. Pop in sometime, there are plenty of Dandies there !

      Cheers !

      Kenny

      Thank you for that 'heads up'.

      (I'm definitely a magnet for those who like to play the man. lol )

  2. Hi there Scotty...you OK mate ?

  3. Just shout my name out. That's how I'm known as. I don't hide behind various cowards usernames.
  4. Nothing against spotty faced, ginger headed warriors in general. Only the cowards that think that the internet gives them anonymity to fire out abuse any way they want.
  5. I'm sure you will be, ya wee fuqking coward.
  6. By the way. I'll be in the Clockwork from 11.00 next Saturday. Pop in. I'll sure I'll recognise you as a spotty face, ginger headed internet warrior. Remember and bring yer mum.
  7. Sorry Brendan. What school are you at so that I come along and have a ride at yer mum while you're out, you pathetic wee khqunt ? After that I'll meet you anytime ya wee tit. Just PM me
  8. Agreed. She's a awful looking woman though, even for a complete bitch.
  9. Horiffically ugly Tory witch with teeth that would make Neil Lennon shudder. Why has nobody pointed this out before ?
  10. Of course it will. The Tories want an Ulster-lite Scotland where anyone who hates the SNP will vote for them because they hate the SNP as well. Have the braindead fishermen in the north-east realised yet that it's not the fault of the EU/SNP that they simply can't go out and fish to their hearts content ?
  11. I've got no doubt at all that the same utterly bizarre rules that allow popcorn teeth to sign Ambrose as a...cough....'emergency loan' despite having by far the biggest squad in the division and having at least 3 centre backs available, will allow Celtic to appeal Brown's stick on red card and allow him to play in the semi final. No that it'll matter a f*ck.
  12. I just miss popcorn teeth still being Celtic manager. That would have been hilarious the day....
  13. Cannae beat a team of teuchters fae the smallest town in the Highlands. Rogers looks like a man under pressure with his paranoid, ranting interview. Thank God it wisnae a big European game against a team from Gibraltar.
  14. Hilarious last couple of minutes....
  15. http://www.heraldscotland.com/opinion/15226407.Some_home_truths_on_Ruth_and_the_still_toxic_Tory_party/?ref=mr&lp=1 About time some home truths were printed about Davidson. People need to see what kind of politician she really is. In the meantime, The Scotsman (sic) has led in their online edition with around 7 or 8 anti-SNP stories in the last day and a half.
