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

    Morning everyone :wave:

    So England are out of the Euros, hey we're all out of the Euros, BoJo the clown may be about to take the reins of power...can things get any worse? :(

    Ah well, I'm looking forward to going horse-riding this morning :D I like spending time with animals (whether my kitty cat or my friend's horse) because they don't care what's going on around them, they just care if you've got some food or not - it's a simple, uncomplicated attitude :beer:

    I think you will find that this attitude is not just related to animals ... :beer:

    Good morning all :hello:
    My legs feel even worse today than yesterday :( perhaps going out for some sprints last night was not the best thing to do after a half marathon on Sunday. I appear to have a trapped nerve at the top of my leg now :(
    Gill, for some reason, when I first read this, I thought it was your post, and I was thinking, :huh: Gill doing sprints and running half-marathons? :eek:

    Morning everyone - we have a cold wet morning here and the fleece back on.
    Not feeling very motivated at all.

    There is only me that is daft enough to go out and do speed training the day after a half marathon. I'm just hoping that it gets better quick as I need it to function fully at the weekend or my running in the lake district may not be the best.
