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

    Good morning all :hello:
    Still was a hot walk to work today, not quite as hot as yesterday though. But I had no choice but to walk today as I have just sent my car in to go and be fixed :(

    Good morning from a dull and overcast Riviera by here.

    It started like this yesterday, rained at lunchtime, and then we had a scorcher of an afternoon.
    I married my cousin. I had to...
    I don't have a sister. :D

    Morning all!

    First day of 'A' levels for the last time in the Tucker household as youngest aims for 3 B's to get a place at Southampton to do Adult Nursing.

    Good luck to all the other sproglets doing important exams - Deep breaths, stay calm and do your best!!

    Morning all!

    Came into work this morning to find a duck and her nine babies in the car park. No idea how she got there but as there is a main road right by the office - and a busy one at that - we had to try and catch her. The RSPCA were useless! Got the babies in a box but she would not be caught! IF we can get her we can take her to the canal but there is no way she can get there without crossing busy roads.

    We have currently left it with the chaps from the charity shop next door. I'll see if I can get an update later.

    Ooh Flick! A drama! They might be able to lure mum duck if she hears her chicks cheeping. Perhaps into a store room or garage or something?

    They are tucked under a bush in the wasteland behind our office now. Hopefully they will wait until it's quiet and then try and get back to the canal.
