      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'm in the same boat, looking for 2x England end tickets for a couple of mates. Cheers.
  2. ** Takes Bow **
  3. Done the overnighter down to London for the Faddy game in Paris and I will never touch another overnight bus journey again in my life
  4. Is that a threat "inserts real life name in a threatening way himself" 😂😂 The irony is unreal, some character. I would be truly gutted if in years time this guy was outted to be a real person as whoever came up with this online alias is a true Bantersaurus Rex.
  5. BannedAid - Do They Know it's TAMBers Time
  6. ***Breaking News*** Match has been moved to The Emirates to allow LiveAidMcDerrmot to take place at Wembley. More on this breaking news story to follow...
  7. 😂 not a chance this guy is actually real, run a gig to make a little turn for himself and make a "donation". Aye jog on... or get a taxi. Top Character!
  8. Looking for a goalkeeper top from sometime in the 90's in an XL for a fancy dress event. Anyone know where is best to look?
  9. Treated myself to a set of taylormade rsi 1 irons two weeks ago, only been out once since, spent most time on the range. So far so good, really chuffed with them.
  10. Well the butterfly and pig was pish. Hardly a tune heard, over zealous bouncer telling Germans to be quiet whilst allowing scots to sing. Nahhhh, not anymore. Place isn't the same since the corona closed doors.
  11. Had a run in with a hot head today. Hit my drive with a big slice to the right, heading onto the opposite fairway. Group walking up that towards us so I belted out a shout of fore. Literally couldn't have shouted loud enough, they were too busy gabbing away and my ball missed them by inches. Guy comes screaming over, shouting and swearing away pointing his finger claiming I could have broke his leg. Completely out of order, first words out my mouth we're sorry about that, but I did shout. Guy was having none of it though. Really pissed me off, want to make a complaint to the club secretary but never done something like that before, not normally one to complain but the guys attitude was horrendous and I'd hate for him to get away with it and do it again. Any advice on how to handle it?
  12. Absolute scumbags. Not only them but there seemed to be a massive ned presence tonight, before I even got to my seat saw a kilt in handcuffs, then two guys trying to run in the open fire doors, then at the end a full on fisty cuffs square go between a group of Glaswegian neds. That game really brought out the scum of glasgow tonight.
  13. As the title asks, is it ok for a fake Skean dhu to be taken on as hand luggage?
  14. Swap all the knifes and forks over
