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

    Us too usually. I'm often at the gym by 6. ;)

    Didn't sleep too well because we forgot to shut the bedroom window after airing the room. I'm a light sleeper and the wildlife around here is noisy. I think my new neighbours must keep exotic birds or something. It's like sleeping in the tropics with lots of screeches and squawks from dawn. Added to night time noisy owls, fighting cats and God knows what else, a lie in was inevitable.

    We had a lie-in too. Rudely awoken at 9 by a knock at the door. Neighbour returning some tools I'd lent him. Apprarently, he was rather bashful and profusely apologetic when confronted by my bleary eyed wife dressed only in her summer weight dressing gown.

    Total negligence I would say ...

    There is a tenuous link. My wife's great aunt was the first female cabinet minister.

    Almost. She drives herself there. I slob it in the passenger seat with my iPad and an insulated mug of coffee. :D

    I'm not naturally a morning person.

    I have problems just trying to be a person, morning or otherwise!
