      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. And I went to my bed coz I was emotionally exhausted
  2. There's a staaaaarman Flying down the right.. His name is Jamesy Forrest And he is phukin $h1te
  3. Lamia is well aware of how handsome I am.
  4. Ormond said you were bonnie. I'm no sure he's fussy mind. Don't agree about Mindi. Burds with green faces have always been putty in my hands!
  5. Ooops! I meant I'm a pure staunner!! Naw seriously, I'm no like my big Sis. I don't go flashing my wares all over the tinterweb. I'm shy!
  6. After all the compliments TDYER63 has been getting on this thread, I would just like to point out that good looks run in the family. I'm a pure stunner. Jyst sayin..... PS - And I'm younger than her.
  7. I'm not being rude TL but if you hadn't heard of Lewis Morgan until today, you're not that up on Scottish football (or to this thread) Ceudmilefailte, yes mate, he's ALWAYS this good!! Great to see Stevie MAllan getting a goal too.
  8. Cheers mate. I found it eventually.
  9. Can't see it on there
  10. Your description above covers off the Lithuania game but not last night. I think he only beat his man about twice the whole night and when you say he was "unlucky" not to score, are you talking about towards the end when he was clean through and showed an extreme lack of composure by ballooning the ball over the bar? That's not unlucky in my book. It was just crap. Also as Parklife stated earlier, he was hugely frustrating in terms of how often he gave the ball away.
  11. Erm.... Playing your last game when you're 4 points clear at the top of the section. Playing your second last game when you're more than 6 points off qualification. Shall I go on?
  12. He was as bad against Malta as he was good against Lithuania. So my jury remains out. I was very pleasantly surprised with his performance against Lithuania, but he was absolutely honking last night.
  13. Agree with this. It was very obvious tonight that he was not in his favoured position. Offered very little in an atracking sense in comparison to when he plays on the left.
  14. That was putrid.
  15. Surely that one HAS to be a piss take.
