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

    I remember when I left I did say the stains I got on the old one could be washed out with an effective detergent. Still, at £20, why bother?

    I just ordered an electric hand-held massager. It should come tomorrow or the next day. There's no medical need here - we just thought it might be Interesting.

  • Sounds nice. :D I've never been a "proper" student. I feel I've missed out now. :eek:



    It's a book called "Random Acts of Kindness" by Danny Wallace. It's been going around loads of MSErs for a while. When they're done with it, they send it to another person. I would be honoured to send it to you when I've finished with it? :)

    ooooh! yes please. Sounds like my kind of book. I think I've read a few quotes from it in other books. I'll PM you my address if you want?
    That's what I should do with the new one as well - no more ironing :D
    Yeah, but then you'll look like a bag lady. :D

    Sure. That'd be great. :) The book is really inspiring. It has things in that you wouldn't even think of doing before reading it. It's awesome. Think I'm going to buy myself a permanent copy too. :D
    I've only just got it so it might take me a while to send. I hope that's okay. :)

    Thank you my darling for not revealing my incontinence.
    I wonder why it is, that young men are always cautioned against bad girls. Anyone can handle a bad girl. It's the good girls men should be warned against.-David Niven

    A swimming hat and a keyring for DS2, yesterday.
  • What book is this? It sounds like something I might be interested in judging by LM's response. PM title if you want.

    Last thing I bought was a dog behaviour class at £30.

    It was from a thread I started and subsequently got pulled by the mods...Random Acts of Kindness

    it has absolutely nothing to do with submissive men and yellow marigolds....sorry Scammo :p;)
