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

    The scavengers grabbing everything and barging people out of the way around the whoopsie section in Asda. Never seen anything like it before. One staff member found it great entertainment and was just stood there laughing while their colleague struggled to stay on his feet while reducing stuff.

    My brain won't shut up. I'm starting to wish I hadn't started looking into moving out, because my brain won't focus on anything else. The things I would do for a decent night's sleep...

    Just an idea. Try doing something that can require thought as it may distract you from the issue.

    Too much to mention today.....
  • I still have a headache. I am pretty sure it's a sinus infection now.

    I have not been well since having flu back in early Jan - really, really getting fed up now.

    Says it all! :(
    Grrrrr x 3

    Just realised this isn't the three word thread, so best make it Grrrrr x 100! :rotfl:
  • Had to miss college today, been in severe chest pain from the noise, slept 13 hours in the end and only woken by one of the other neighbours (a junkie) ringing my buzzer demanding to get in, really hate where im staying now.

    Then got call from the council stating the neighbour has refused mediation, can't give me exact reasons but says theres no chance now of its happening.

    I assume neighbour has gotten upset at me not liking the fact she had a party to 5am last weekend and having over a dozen kids in her flat running about on laminate and a barking dog last night till 10pm!

    Somehow SHES the victim.

    the fact that you cant buy tracksuit bottoms to fit people under 7ft tall. even alot of the kids range are far too long. we just want some for hanging around the house in.

    I keep seeing all these FB posts from Christians about boycotting eggs that don't say Easter. Did I miss the bit in the Bible where Jesus squatted down and laid a chocolate egg?

    The really funny bit is that the egg business was stolen from the Pagans and adapted to symbalise the rolling away of the stone.

    Anyway it wasn't jesus that laid the chocolate egg it was the easter bunny :rotfl:

    I'm about 5'7" and I have short legs (relative to my body, I mean, they're not 10cm long). I bought trackie bottoms for exactly that reason and the length's fine. Got them from Amazon. (They look long on one of the photos, but they're not that long on me, especially not after they've been washed and tumbledried.)



    Yup. Isn't Easter a variation on the name of the Pagan holiday as well?

    I should have said we need a larger waist which makes it harder. Small might fit length wise but wouldnt waist wise.
