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.
    Had son had his way I'd be driving around Manchester looking for a McDonalds about now but when I demanded to know exactly where his theory test was, it turned out to be at 9 am am (hah!) three days ago.
    Son has re-booked, & I woke early & then went back to sleep. Not a habit I dare indulge too far but great fun when I can.

    Hello :hello:

    Dad should have worn gloves this morning - yes it was that cold :eek:

    It was fairly fresh here, probably not as cold as there but cold enough to make me think I need to put a pair of gloves in my jacket pocket now, winter is coming :(

    Morning all :hello:

    Despite the temperature it looks to be a half decent day out there so yet more gardening today jardinage0.gif

    Good Morning :hello:

    So glad that housework is not compulsory around here ;)

    Dad is going out soon for his thrice weekly injection, I hope it starts to work soon so that he gets well enough to take me rather than the car :o
