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

    Golly gosh and gumdrops!

    They are making a whole new Star Trek series!

    I only found out today when the death of Anton Yelchin highlighted that fact.
    He was playing the new Chekhov character.

    Very sad fatal accident. :(


    With regards to the new series, it's always a mixture of excitement and trepidation! Mind you, there's a Roddenberry who is an executive producer, so hopefully it will stay true to the franchise ethos.

    Watch this space!

    (Am really worried that Sky will snatch it up for UK viewing. I don't have Sky! :eek::eek: That would be a calamity, if it's not on Freeview! :(

    Yes! Funnily enough, the sun came out not long after I posted that, and then I was fine!

    It was sooooooo chilly earlier on, though!

    Morning all :hello:

    Looks like a nice, sunny day here, for a change :)

    Morning Everyone. I managed to see the Moon when it was rising. It looked pretty impressive before it went into some clouds. Seems not to bad a day here!
