      PLEASE READ: TAMB is not closing!   10/12/2017

      Just to provide an update on the future of the Tartan Army Message Board. To be clear the board will not be closing and instead will be staying open and will hopefully go from strength to strength. Who Are We? We are a group of Scotland supporters who have varied skills and expertise, along with experience of  being involved in football and running football message boards. When we heard the TAMB faced closure, we contacted the old team with a detailed plan which involved financing and running the board. After speaking to the old team on a number of occasions they have allowed us to put our plan into action. While speaking to them and going on their experience and that of those before them, we have elected to keep our identity private, however rest assured we have the best intentions for the board and those on it. Our Plans. Our plan will involve a number of stages which we hope will not only keep the board going but help improve and rejuvenate it. Our first step will be to do a bit of a clean-up of the board. This will involve some downtime for a few hours where posting will be disabled. We plan to do this early next week, a full notice will be posted on the board then. Once that is completed we will be upgrading the current board platform, both behind the scenes and hopefully aesthetically too. There will be an ongoing process of board improvements which we hope you, the user will help us with, so you have a board you will enjoy We thank the old board team for all their hard work, dedication and their help during this handover and hope you will all help support our plans going forward.

The TAMB - so what's happening?

Recommended Posts

Browsing various threads in TA Specific, there are a number of posters who seem to be under the impression that the board is still closing down.

Now that the 'play-off bounce' has failed to materialize, are the 'new custodians' (wanky phrase) going to come on to explain how they intend rejuvenate this place, or do they just intend to preside silently over its continued decline? I appreciate they may be on their way back from Slovenia, but it would be good to hear something soon.

End of the campaign almost coincides with the end of the TAMB.

All over folks....time to look ahead to 2020 (although not on this board).

People under estimated Slovenia, yes they were poor at Hampden but they're the typical east european team that don't travel well but are very very tough to beat on their home turf.

Even with little to play for they still have quality players like Illic on the park.

Strachan's lack of subs and taking off a striker immediately after 1-1 are unforgivable though.

He's not the worst Scottish manager ever but two full campaigns now and 4th is the best he can do.

 

Some examples of the posts I mentioned. Folk are just going to drift off, if it's not made clear that there's been a reprieve ...

Wee Strachan's taking it over. Unfortunately, just when things start to go well he'll be changing the structure from threaded to flat and only allowing his pet posters to contribute.

Will you need to be over 6 feet to continue posting? I should be ok but I fear for other regular contributors...

Aye, but your IP address will be tracked to make sure you're posting from down south.

If the people running the board want to cheer themselves up just compare and contrast the reaction you got on here to your announcement versus how the Guardian got on when it launched its twitter appeal for donations. Hilarious reading the responses.

This actually restores some of my faith in people in the UK...

No idea what's up but I had no access to the buttons to post or access my own profile etc the last couple of days. Fortunately I was able to circumvent those problems today. Phart is back up and running with full permissions, I hope the administrator doesn't mind i just sorted it myself :)

I have no idea what most of that means or how it happened.

I'm certainly not aware of any changes having been made to members' statuses.

I'll refer it to Technical.

They did. And it's not really.

Reporting posts isn't restricted to dropping the bad boys in it.

Responsible members have been using the system for years to bring posts to the attention of the shite Moderators.

I appear to have made you happy. That's probably good but leaves me unmoved.

I have no idea what your post means though.
