      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. Hard to believe it's been 19 years since it happened. Incredible how time flies.
  2. hot stuff "did you fvck any kids Leon?" "no of course not. I just strangled them and ate them" fanny made of plasticine
  3. For me, it was the lack of gossip and celebrity horoscopes what led to me not coming on here so much. But when Admin got rid of page 3 it done me in. I needed my 6 day daily dose of fake t!ts in the morning to explain my day. When they got rid of that and gave a Wednesday column to that barren big German lesbian witch Nicola Sturgeon I just thought fvck that. So I didint come back. If the Tamb wants us back we need more football tips, endless chat about post-transfer window big money signing rumours,and a crudely drawn cartoon about a sex crazed married blonde couple with a really boring life that muse about their neighbours, his job and her shopping habits while he fists her cvnt and pisses on her face.
  4. I'm DAFC. We'll pay off our Tambing debts, get HBOS to wipe out 92 per cent of rest of the load we owe and then shaft the local creditors like hairdressers and coke dealers who chucked us 70 grand for "entertainment" Then we'll struggle for a few years in the dark web and eventually get back to being searchable on Bing with the prospect of being Googleable within the next 3 years.
  5. What are other Tambers doing to celebrate the foiling of Guy Fawkes plot this year? Lets all post about our plans and meet on here the day after to post our photos and memories of this years special 212th anniversary.
  6. 1st November? I read that announcement wrang. I thought it wis the 1st October. Fvcks sake - we've goat 2 months min. It's no like the Rangers. "the Tamb survived, the Rangers died, the Tamb survived, the Rangers died..."
  7. cos ye dinnae say "arithemicsately" unless ye've goat a lisp. don't see why it bug you
  8. Aye, that's awfy sad. 51 is no age at all.
  9. aw shucks Ally Life goes on even if the Tamb disnae. And you can always follow me on twitter where I never fvcking post either
  10. This was something that me and Dave in London knocked up through the Tamb https://soundcloud.com/projectseven/woolly-secova-and-projectseven
  11. Geldof's a nawbag wi nae talent. I'm Midge Ure
  12. Actually, my favourite tambers are all those who bought or streamed by album "One" by secova available from many music outlets such as https://www.amazon.co.uk/One-Secova/dp/B06XX6HWY9/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1504902579&sr=8-1&keywords=secova+one https://www.amazon.com/One-Secova/dp/B06XWX18Y9 https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/one/id1220693469 Thanks but honestly, i would prefer that you buy it or stream it on Apple music rather than Spotify as they pay $0.001 per stream which is pretty pish. But then the album's pish so it all balances out
