      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

  1. When will hearts return to their stadium?
  2. Hi, we are driving to Ljulbjana from France, and we can take 2 people in Venice airport. We will be there near 22:00 on the friday night. 15€/person. Let me knowif you're interested. Vince.
  3. Nice website in English. why is it not written in Slovenian if they don't want Scottish supporters in the home end?
  4. So, everybody on 5 points are guaranteed a ticket now? thanks.
  5. We are driving from France on friday night and going via Venice. We will be there near 4:00 (saturday morning). we can drive 2 people in Ljulbjana for 15€ each. We return on monday (leave Ljulbjana near 12:00). Same price.
  6. Any news about home end tickets? Can't find something on Slovenian federation website
  7. Hi, when do the SSC tickets go on sale? Thanks for your help.
  8. I usually go when it opens (12:00 or something like these) to avoid a big queue later on the day, especially just before the game...
  9. I live one hour from Basel. I agree that it would be better to go to Freiburg. Nice town, nice market Christmas, not too big so you can make the most of it by walking. Colmar in France is wonderful too. Edit: What's the problem with Rothaus beer? It's not that bad!!!
  10. This is a bigger problem than Strachan remaining... http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-scotland-37989247
  11. And what about "fans" telling people to stop waving flags because they can't see the game?????
  12. As i said in another thread. It needs to be well organised to have a real impact. I saw some great ideas here. It's not only a half empty Hampden, it's to show that the fans are here but want a whole change in Scottish football.
  13. Boycott (or any other ideas to show our belief) is a idea which just needs to be seriously organised to have a real impact.
  14. Brown and McArthur would be a great partnership for ou defensive mildfield.
  15. Agree that Naismith should be in our starting 11. Just behind the striker (everybody except Martin). GK RB FB FB LB Burke CM CM Anya Naismith Striker
