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, first thing I did when I got in to the office at 6.45 was open all the windows and get a draft flowing.

    I have been outside soaking up the sun for most of the day while dad has been inside trying to keep cool.

    Morning all WFH today - which will be a challenge as we have a house full

    Luckily we have a new paddling pool so that should keep the kids quiet (and yes you correctly recall they are all 18+ so that was unexpected but also self funded)

    A paddling pool full costs £3 - who knew - I did check.
    I think I saw you in an ice-cream parlour/Drinking milk shakes cold & long/Smiling & waving & looking so fine

    Morning, just arrived at work for the second time, as the first time I forgot my letter from the hospital with the barcode I need to check in for my appointment later, so I had to go home and get it (20 mile round trip). Sigh.

    Good Morning :hello:

    Hope dad is better today as I hardly saw him all day yesterday, some kind of heatstroke was affecting him and he did not go much further than from bed to toilet all day :o
