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

    FOR MONTHS! Hence the desperate vet visit. I joke about it now, but I did feel sorry for her. If a human is feeling that way inclined they have ways of attending to it, but this poor wee creature had the perpetual horn and no relief.
    I don't think I've ever actually witnessed a cat in heat, mine have all been male and I've got them in for the chop the second their balls are big enough.
    Do they just mope around feeling sorry for themselves and watching bridget jones diary and drinking rose?

    I wish! Rocket basically wanders round the house trilling and yowling - especially at night. She is massively affectionate - especially at night and early morning.

    People who haven't mastered the art of bagging shopping when using a self-service till.

    1 Bag on output side
    2 Scan item and put item in bag
    3 Pay
    4 Pick up bag full of items

    Why do some people scan the items and pile them up and then decide to spend 5 minutes bagging and holding up anyone else wanting to use the till?

    (OK I know there's steps missing above 1a tell till you are using your own bag 1b Unexpected Item in Bagging Area 1c Swear under your breath 1d Wait for assistant to confirm to the till that it really is a bag)

    :eek: I can't imagine why she was let out of the house the first time!

    Rocket is kept very firmly indoors at the moment! She is tiny but damn she's loud!

    She just never considered the possibility that a cat that young could end up with a selection of (very cute) buns in the oven.

    ^This, plus she would "present herself" to the other (de-balled) cat, the dog, humans, furniture, thin frickin' air...raging nympho, basically.

    Oh yes - I forgot about the "presenting" bit!

    Moose even stood over her, grabbing her neck with his mouth! :eek:

  • Fed up with those """""" neighbours and their excuses, after being fobbed off so long I got council involved and got a cheeky note through my door stating they are having a party tonight AS IS THEIR RIGHT TO DO SO.

    So decided to blast my music out and see how THEY like it.

    Its all thats stopping me just thumping them.

    I didn't realise cats would be a great choice to join the Tory party....

    My internet cut out when I was in the middle of typing an important email. The save draft thing has only saved the first of three paragraphs (I assume the 'net cut-off while I was typing and I didn't notice), so now I need to remember what I typed.

    That's never happene
