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

    Good morning :hello:

    Don't you just hate it when you plan to do something early in the day to avoid bad weather later and then the bad weather arrives early :mad:

    In that case I would look at the sky, growl (both dog and man) and shake your fist / paw at the sky! :mad:

    That is pretty much what we did and went anyway.

    Good Morning :hello:

    Dad is going to see the GP again this morning but I am not getting to go, he says that 5 miles is too long a walk for him to try and keep me under control the way he feels just now :(

    GP is stumped and took more blood for tests, looks like a return visit to hospital may be in order to get CT scan, ultrasound and possibly even more tests.
    Starting to look like aunt Ruby's walking services may need to be called on again :(

    Good Morning :hello:

    Just another day of walking my Dad, he can be hard work at times, particularly when he wants to walk in a straight line instead of zig-zagging about to everything that smells nice ;)
