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

    Between the stuff going on on here, the heat and some IRL stuff, I've not been doing very well lately (probably obvious from the amount of irritations I was getting through in a day :p ). Because I'm so anxious, pretty much everything irritates me, so I'll narrow it down to a couple:

    One of my neighbours must have a car with approximately 39 doors--either that or they're incredibly forgetful and have to keep opening and slamming their doors until they've remembered to get eveything out.

    I think I'm going to have to get rid of one of my bookcases because of space constraints. Our landing is just too small to allow me to manoeuvre it into another room, so it'll have to go out instead. I'm irritated because a) I'm going to have to have my paperbacks double-deep, which I hate, and b) I love my bookcases (even if they are cheap IKEA things) and I'm getting weirdly upset about getting rid of one.
    If they were flatpack jobs, why not dismantle it, wholly or partly, and re-assemble it in the room?

    What that made up one that was never me, but another user pretending it was me.:(
    That was VERY irritating.

    I never thought I would hear myself say this but can we keep it civil in here and not respond to provocation....it would be a shame to lose the thread and potentially some posters

    I did consider it, but cheap MDF stuff never quite goes back together properly and I suspect it'll end up wobbly (which isn't safe for a 2m tall bookcase).

    You might find you only need to tap off the backing board, and loosen the screws/bolts a bit, then you might Be able to wiggle it into the room, as it won't be so rigid.

    Those two-metre ones usually have a tape for securing the bookcase to the wall, for safety.

    I agree colin. I'm going to use the ignore button for the first time in nearly 10 years of being a member of this site.
