      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

About Return of Yermaw

  1. an I think you'll find Hatton now lives in Falkirk
  2. I know. It is a typical Tory trait - you don't give a feck about the circumstances of others until it impacts on you (and throw direct family in there also). Ruth Davidson made some utterances about the DUP's attitude towards LGBT folks (before of course firmly toeing the party line); telling however to see her initial reaction to a Tory position which adversely impacted on her for once. She is fine with thousands of other poor bastards being adversely impacted by disability or benefit cuts..........
  3. were you not calling someone a bed wetter on another thread?
  4. In town, I go for Brewdog, the 13th Note, Ad Lib, the Press Bar and The Admiral. If you count Charing Cross as in town then Chinaskis and Liberte/Black Sparrow are also pretty decent. then before you know it you are in Woodlands so would head to West or better still, Inn Deep. Drygate on/just off Duke Street is a great place to meet ahead of any football - suppose if across the M8 is no longer city centre then across High St doesn't count either but worth the wee trek.......
  5. which is what most reasonably minded people would also think with that comparison.........
  6. he doesn't seem to be disputing the fact Rangers cheated. he is talking about the knock on effect that cheating has had on other Scottish clubs in their (fair) attempts to try and compete with Rangers and how some clubs may still be suffering the ill effects of that mad spending period......
  7. with the notable exception of King Barry of Bannan.
  8. aye, holding on to a key asset in order to help secure promotion - the overriding priority for the club - and then on achieving that looking to get a substantive sum for him going into the last year of his contract.........
  9. Dan Cake bitter and angry. Chin up - only a few months till the EPL starts.....
  10. You are possibly interpreting things through your own priorities in life. for the majority of people money is indeed the sole driver whether they are rich or poor - however in some cases, and this might be difficult to comprehend for those solely driven by money, other factors can come into play..........
  11. Ten midfielders remain against the following striking "options": Forwards Leigh Griffiths (Celtic) Chris Martin (Derby County) Steven Naismith (Norwich City) Jesus.
  12. keep that schtum or Strachan will be calling up all their Scottish players for the next squad.........
  13. interested to see how McGinn and Cummings perform today.........
  14. we need a Davis Cup event or jubilee type street parties. thats what we need.
