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

    Little boys! :D

    Just face-timed the family in the USA. The 5year old sang What a Wonderful Life all the way through, complete with actions. Soooo sweet!

    Then they showed us how their paper aeroplanes flew, only for big brother to stamp on the 3year old's plane!

    I shouldn't have but I smiled today when my dog banged his head on a lampost while he was looking over his shoulder at another dog we had just passed :)

    Been there, done that, got the T-shirt :D

    On the same train of thought .....

    ... remembering my first Great Dane passing through doorways until he really got the hang of it.

    Akin to White Van Man in his Transit but forgetting that he had left that vehicle at home and was actually out in an articulated lorry over 50ft long.

    Nose through, eyes through, ears through , TURN :eek:

    Fact that his shoulder blades are still in the room that he's leaving ... :rotfl:
