Money Savers Arms


Last ooorders!… We’re sorry but for now, due to resources, we need to close the Money Savers Arms including Discussion Time.

It’s not easy to write this. We love the forum, but we also have a job to do to protect it, our users and MoneySavingExpert, and at the moment, with all our resources focused on Coronavirus information, and all the team at home, we don’t feel we have the resources to do a good enough job.

For four months, we’ve been struggling to cope with the huge volumes of messages we’ve been getting from Forumites – many of whom are in desperate and dire straits with their finances. The team have been working all hours to try and keep on top of it. At first we thought it’d be a short sharp spike, but it isn’t, it’s continuing, so we have had some difficult choices to make about prioritisation.

Unfortunately in, and likely because of, these stressful times, the Forum team have also been receiving an increasing number of complaints about posts made on the Money Savers Arms and Discussion Time. The team have done what they can to try and walk the tightrope of balancing all the various interests, but for now we need to draw a line under this and temporarily close this Board, so we can keep the key, MoneySaving boards – where people are supporting each other through this crisis - running smoothly.

We know this board is important to you, but as the MSE stance has been forbearance throughout this crisis, now we ask that of you. We’re sorry. Of course you can post on other boards, but we’d ask you to stick to the subjects of those boards, and not use them as a surrogate Money Savers Arms or Discussion Time. And as always please be kind and friendly to each other, especially any newbies.

Thanks
MSE Forum Team

On the discussion thread people are talking about how they have to work on Christmas day. Maybe sometimes we forget that whilst we are being merry or whatever we are doing that there are others whom keep the country going, silently in the background making sure everything is running for us. So whether it be doctors and nurses, emergency lift engineers, petrol station assistants or any other kind of service, lets all say a big thanks here to let them know we appreciate them. ;D

    Thanks to all working to keep the country ticking over, my daughter is working on Christmas day in a restaurant and my son works in a pub/ nightclub and he has been and will be working every night till 3am except Chritmas day when he will probably just sleep!

    Also a big thanks to all the people who have had to work extra hard to help the rest of us get to Christmas day with everything we need to enjoy ourselves...

    Thank you to all who work over Christmas to keep the country ticking over. May I also add those who volunteer their time on Chrismas Eve and Chrismas Day to work for free in shelters and food halls bringing some Christmas spirit to the homeless and destitute and those who visit Old Peoples Homes and Hospitals over the holiday period to make sure those without families get a visit and a small gift from someone.
