      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. The guy I was referring to, along with several others, turned fitba mad into another version of follow follow or Hun media. I'll stick with my opinion of him if it's all the same to yourself.
  2. I haven't, no. I'm guessing the guy who wants me hung, drawn and quartered has though.
  3. I'd love to see you hung, drawn and quartered for that attempt at writing in English ya fuking peasant.
  4. Hopefully any new board isn't littered with offended wee gimps like you.
  5. I think the award is actually for best fan moment and we're nominated for the full stadium display against Hearts on the last day of the season, when 67 in the heat of Lisbon was getting belted out. Unforgettable.
  6. Getting banned from fitba mad cos it's full of stinking hun cvnts like tartan scone 1314
  7. I know that obviously lol. I just mean in general. The guy's behaviour is truly bizzare.
  8. Mate what the fuk are you all about man? I really don't understand what your end game is with all your internet shite. Is it just a case of any kind of attention being better than none at all? You seem to be going out your way to make every dislike you. I really think you need help.
  9. What happened to that boy from York who used to post? Can't remember his username but me and @Parklife met him in London after the Brazil friendly.
  10. Met the boy who plays Lip in Shameless in London when we were down playing Fulham in Gordon Strachan's first game in charge. Also met that Leilani burd who poses for page 3 at the game. So to answer your question, I haven't actually met any celebrities.
  11. Aye that's the very one mate
  12. If I'm thinking of the same song then Celtic (ironically) have a version. "I'm coming home Glasgow Celtic, I'm coming to you" etc We always sing it on away days and replace "Glasgow Celtic" with "Bonnie Scotland" but nobody joins in.
  13. And what are you adding to the songbook ya weapon?
  14. How is he "clearly not good enough" out of interest?
  15. Mate I said the same, all these pricks on Facebook talking about their spending power have zero self awareness. We took a tanking off a far superior team. Shit happens
