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 all, looking like another beautiful day. Contemplating a 'barbecue' later with one of those £2 self-contained things which I still have from last summer.

    I've often wondered why there's often a Barbie Queue, but never a Ken Queue.

    Maybe it's because men are from Mars and Women are from Venus.

    Mrs G does a very good barbie impression. I have a picture somewhere. She hates it.

    Found it...

    If you have to queue up to get into a lecture at University, is that a unique?

    Or at a computer fair..... a technique?
    At an art gallery.............a picturesque?
    At a comedy show..........a humoresque!
    At a museum.................a statuesque?
    At a camel market..........an arabesque?
    At a bottom-implant clinic.........a boutique?
    At a meteorologist convention.....a mystique?
    At a coca-cola convention...........a physique?
    At a dissidents' meeting ............an antique?
    At a religious service........a masque?
    At a twins' convention......a bisque?

    And the queue at the Complaints Department........... a pique?
    (Or is that the queue to get into the legumes tent at The Horticultural Show?)

    Morning all! Just!

    They are my nails but with an acrylic overlay. Every year I have them all taken off and a new set of tips put on - so for about 3 month, I do have false nails. After that, they are mine.

    I'm just going to say Hello as it's not morning and not really afternoon either :hello:

    Been busy deadheading plants and painting pots for the garden. Too hot to be outside now so kitchen cleaning it is :eek:

    I was just wondering what the collective noun for swans might be.......it turns out to be a bevy or bank. (Or in flight, a wedge).

    I was disappointed........ I wanted it to be an elegance of swans.



    Good morning, little cygnets!

    Bore da pawb!!


    Spent yesterday doing a few bits around the house & starting a little project using some left over pallet wood.


    Never knew that Pyx, though my favourite animal is called - a group of penguins in the water is called a 'raft' !!!8211; a group of penguins on land is called a 'waddle'.

    Dau enaid ond un taith.
