      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. What do you use for bait? How long is your rod? 🎣👅
  2. Usually put on a 5 or 6 game accumulator and always cash out if it gets to my cash out amount. If it is due to pay out over £300 for my tenner then I settle for £80, never had one that would have gave me full amount. I also bet in play with around 20 mins to go or less, I was being really greedy the other day and watched PSG come in from 1/12 to 20/21 and had £30 but would not put it on till it went to evens, bassas went and scored...
  3. Wish I could put a YouTube video of the End by the doors
  4. Nah mate, a wee mole stuck his heid up, never touched the Rangers player🐀🙈
  5. Could have passed it to his goalie or put it out the park, guy took good advantage of the situation.
  6. Being a Rangers fan first and a very poor gambler second I stupidly put £20 on Motherwell and Aberdeen respectively to win the game when both were drawing at 80 mins..surely...surely one would win..nope, both shite ps, I also had £20 on Liverpool with 5 mins to go.....also, shite. Thank feck Barcelona got me on an even keel...phew
  7. I'm fairly hopeful...6 nil PSG, Neymar 4 and Brown to get sent off
  8. Canny wait for the Red Nose Day thread so I can be completely obnoxious to all you people who may support it. Rangers chose to make a celebration of the armed forces, whether anyone feels it is OTT or justified is their own opinion, just a shame it is expressed in such a crass way by some to provoke reaction. Time this thread was moved to the "What went wrong with the TAMB" section
  9. Hope you texted it to SCOT03 70070
  10. Shop window, be the next £30m player to whank over all season, Hope Liverpool, Chelsea, Barcelona are all standing in line with their cheque books open, maybe get a discount 2 for 1 with Dembele.... yes, I'm jealous
  11. Canny disagree with any of this except the bit I fixed for you. Why do you even bother about commenting on it ?
  12. So wars for land borders are ok but wars for religious belief were so out of order (canny believe I'm sticking up for religion mind you). Was the scarf Red white and blue by any chance?
  13. Good post my man...I however get the feeling this is quite a few peoples social life and expect the sales of Prozac to shoot through the roof.
  14. I'm defending it because just like your statement says, it was one side versus another side and maybe the soldier in question has beliefs it is his right to wear such a scarf with pride. Dont be too offended if it is not your belief. This is why we live in a democracy.
  15. Might have Neil McCant to play golf with soon.
