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

    Dad still has some issues related to his operation but is recovering well, a few other things have also surfaced and he is getting treatment for them, he is an old man so I do make allowances for that but I still miss our long walks :o
    Thanks for asking :)

    Good morning everyone.

    Hope your dad gets back on his feet soon Duncan and can take you back out again

    I’m sat outside with a coffee and a jug of squash as I’m cooling down after a longish walk.

    It's good to hear he's improving, it will probably be a long job for a full recovery, be patient, he'll get there in the end chienpipi.gif

    Good morning- weather here is pretty pants! It’s been raining heavily overnight. I’m up and getting ready to take kids out anyway though as I sure as heck ain’t staying in all day and getting cabin fever!
    Then I should be home around 2pm is to try and get some admin done and get a bit more organised.

    Morning, looks like a beautiful start to the day. Saw the first balloons of the festival on my way to work, they start earlier every year!
