      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 single him out as I’ve had to endure the useless feck be absolute pish for 3 of the past 3.5 years and I’m sick fed up of him.
  2. Told you. Another wonderful McLean performance tonight.
  3. A wonderfully constructed post. Outstanding.
  4. I actually quite liked him after that as he was going to support Scotland. He became much more of a dirty wee whank as he got older though
  5. Keith Lasley, in a kilt, pishing in a sink in a pub toilet, prior to a Scotland game.
  6. He fought for a world title in his last fight, 6 months ago...
  7. I'd say playing for a middle of the road Championship team is about as close to the definition of "very average" as you could get.
  8. If McInnes plays our best 11, in the shape they're used to, i reckon we'll win. However, i have visions of him trying to wedge both Rooney and May in the side, Christie either punted out wide or on the bench, Kenny McLean stinking the place out as usual and Louis Moult scoring a double. Will wait until i see the line-ups before placing my bet on 'Well.
  9. Once saw Alan Shearer at York races. His horse then won at 16/1. Went back and gave him a bit of a ribbing about not alerting me to it's chances.
  10. You've clearly not seen us play the last few weeks
  11. I fancy Motherwell to put Aberdeen out the cup tonight. Motherwell almost 4/1 to win in 90 minutes or 9/4 just to qualify.
  12. Oh aye,, Forgot about that. Can't mind his name at all.
  13. Did you work in Homebase, or were you just randomly scouting Homebase for new pals?
  14. Yeah, i don't think it helps them either. It's good for a manager to show a young player that he has faith in him but coming out and saying he's going to be an all time great, after 45 minutes of game time, just puts unnecessary pressure on the guy.
  15. Raiding warehouses and confiscating posters, removing banners from private property, police storming government buildings and the attempt to deny a referendum taking place. A true affront to democracy. A disgrace.
