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

    My neighbour has just brought me a bunch of flowers round to say thank you...She's been dog sitting a new puppy for her son for a couple of weeks, so I've been seeing to her cat.:)
    Everyone you meet may be fighting a battle you know nothing about.

    Have just done my Sat shift at work (busy restaurant) and now have a whole week off wtih no plans but a couple of social get togethers.

    Got home to find letter from hospital after my breast screening last week and everything is ok :beer:
    Walk 2000 miles in 2017....1780.35 miles
    Walk 2018 miles in 2018...1939.71 miles
    Walk 2019 miles in 2019.....2,038.97 miles :j
    Walk 2020 miles in 2020......717.71 miles
    Make £2020 in 2020.......£613.15
  • Similar to the bounder who used to bluster his tales of watching sport on ITV, I'll repeat my stance.

    Back Italy in the rugby pre game, this time £20 at 129/1, lay them off during the game , this time £100 at 25/1. On this occasion , nice easy £80'ish profit, pays for a night out .

    Well done England and lots of respect to Italy, did yourselves proud.
