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.

    There used to be a rule that if you posted 4 times in a row on a thread it meant that you were officially talking to yourself (ask colin)
    I am naturally gifted but dad did have to get a bigger keyboard for me and I can't switch the puter on as the switch at the wall is guarded and the button on the machine is too small.

    The playing fields are buzzing again today, lots of bees are sampling the nectar and pollen from the clover, buttercups and daisies that have all come through since the field was cut on Monday :)

    Team meeting today was in fact a colleagues quiz with some fiendish complex questions on TV shows across the decades. Wonderful how some of us unwilling to admit to knowledge to teletubbies, but I recognised "Over the hills" as proper to Sharpe. (There will be real work news tomorrow, I'm sure...)
