      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. PSG are a class team, honestly feel they will win the champions league this season. I hate the champions league now and don't bother watching it anymore, just a competition for the rich and greed. The competition lost all respect years ago when teams that finish 2nd, 3rd and 4th get in, should only be the champions in my opinion.
  2. 733 now sold my mate just got his, number 733. Am a 6 pointer but haven't booked for this or Lithiania, first away games missed in last 3 years. So I will be back down to 5 if we get a play off in November, so hoping its a big allocation then
  3. -------------------------------------McGregor Tierney------------Berra----------------Mulgrew--------------Robertson ---------------------------Brown----------McArthur Fraser--------------------------Armstrong--------------------Snodgrass ------------------------------------Griffiths
  4. Totally unrelated but just saw Europa League draw, that would have been some draw for Aberdeen had they got through Group E: Lyon, Everton, Atalanta, Apollon Limassol
  5. Still waiting as well, thought they would have been posted as they said on Twitter it would be posted in August
  6. Celtic v Astana, hard game, there results are getting better and long trip, going to be a tough one for them.
  7. Bookies have installed John Daly as odds on Fav for the job, Hartley second fav at 10/1
  8. Hope you solve the GK situation soon. What's up with Aaron Hughes did he resign for you's?
  9. What seems to be the problem, my mates a Hearts season ticket holder and he says the performance away to Elgin only winning 1-0 was poor and Saturday against East Fife it was only 2 late goals and a sending off that made the result pass without notice. Don't know if the players aren't playing for Cathro or its the tactics etc. Hope they pick up as I would like to see a strong Hearts / Hibs challenge at the top of the league this season to put pressure on Celtic and Aberdeen.
  10. Cheers, that's good to know, hope Aberdeen get a result tonight for him and go through.
  11. I know the guy in the pictures on the link that has had his head burst open, drinks in the Iron Horse and a member of Westa tartan army that I am a member off. Big Aberdeen fan, hope he's ok.
  12. Sorry just saw this. Was nearly right :>(
  13. What is Killie fans opinion of Dominic Thomas, always thought the boy had real potential and was surprised Motherwell let him go. Done well at QOS on loan last year and there fans thought highly of him too.
  14. lol ahh think so Waghorn jeez lol
