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 gave up my Saturday to drive nearly 70 miles to a training course yesterday (and 70 miles back). Being full of cold, on the drive there I was hoping it would be worth it.

    And, surprisingly, it actually was. Left feeling so invigorated and enthused that I actually can't wait to go to school tomorrow even though I have a big observation! Seriously great CPD.

    After a bad start to the morning, getting a big hug from youngest son.

    Oh, and finding a chunk of Welsh military brass music, triggering all sorts of happy flashbacks.

    It's just wonderful.

    Seeing it referenced in a thread I feel great envy and think to myself, why couldn't I have thought of that?

    It's a fantastic response and yet so so original, unique in as much as that from memory I don't think anybody else has ever used it before.

    Those with the super sharp, brilliant minds...... congratulate yourselves.

    I only catch bits of simon mayos shows but think he has one of the best radio shows ever. I dont get to hear all the confessions so when Im on holiday abroad I have a listen on the podcast. Always makes me chuckle. :D

    Im smiling tonight as I worked a busy Valentines evening on my normally "dead on a Tuesday night" shift and it was quite enjoyable with almost quadruple the tips. :D

    The one off last night is well worth catching though....some bloke trying to impress on a date in the 1970's showing off his new lighter and ended up burning his nose....

    A certain little lady, running up to me as soon as she saw me yesterday, and giving me a hug and a big (albeit snotty) kiss..:D:A
