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

    Haven't even got out of bed yet and I'm irritated.
    -The badly behaved cat peed in the laundry basket so all my summer clothes have had to go back in the wash and I'll have to wear jeans today.

    I washed one of the blankets on my bed (king size!) and hung it over a door to dry. It's big so it did kind of spill over on to the floor - one of the cats has puked on the bit that was on the floor!

    Cat exudate, from one end or t'other, seems to be the theme of this thread! :rotfl:

    Well, I'm annoyed that my Vesuvius thread couldn't be resurrected to take its place, although to be fair, that thread was more for explosive rage than irritation!
    Resurrect the Vesuvius thread too, we can have this one for more minor irritations and that one for proper rage explosions. We can bet on which thread will get locked first :rotfl:

    People who think it's really funny to scare you by rattling the back of your chair when you're completely unaware that they're there.

    Had an answer phone message from my opticians to say that my new glasses are delayed to Tuesday.

    Back at work on reduced hours from tomorrow. No one bothers to inform me of any changes such as new policies, new locations for things in the back etc. Even when I say anything changed?
