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

    Someone's easily pleased.:p

    What made me smile within the last few days:
    - On Monday, I asked for a non-emergency GP appointment. I was seen yesterday. Came out and asked for another appointment and got that for this morning.
    - Now changed medication; so hopefully won't be feeling hungry all the time. Just got to remember to take it 3 times a day now.
    - Won DLA tribunal. Was told some very interesting things about colour blindess. Can't remember what they were now. :p

    Still.
    I was at Meadow Lane on Sunday watching Notts Rugby play Ealing. I still giggle at some of the startled looks on the faces of the lads warming up in an otherwise quiet stadium when the roar came from the City Ground :D

    Today what made me smile- finding out that my beloved Notts Rugby have been saved from administration by a management buy out with guaranteed funding for the next 3 years. :T

    And selling my necklace unexpectedly on Buy it Now on EBay for a much needed tenner. :)

    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort
