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've just noticed lots of crocuses and a few primulas under the hedge in the back garden.

    Spring is on the way! And I've dried a load of washing outside. :j

    Son emerging from a maths tutorial smiling, rather than looking stunned or hacked off.
    He's one of the resit-repeat crew & Maths has become a four letter word, so to see him apparently pleased? I may have to deliver on my campaign bribe of new phone if he gets the C this time!

    Guess his "talent" for this subject comes from yourself ....

    ... given that "Maths" is a FIVE letter word :D :rotfl:

    Sorry, as a Brit & trying to eschew Yank terminology, he doesn't study Math, but Maths or Mathematics. We're all fine at spelling & most of us got the Maths O level when we needed it, but the eldest is just stuck on the roundabout, so all help & support is happy news for us.
