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

    I have no idea of the manufacturer :o

    I have looked for the parts online but with no luck.

    It's quite old as well, definitely seen better days. I will make do with the curtain :)

    What's the problem with the door?

    If it's the seals, I know of a place.

    No, not seals, clips. Clips that keep the door attached to the screen part (sliding door). Clips are completely borked and the track they clip in to is also not well.

    Trump for saying that there would be less bloodshed in London if they allowed guns and banned knives instead :mad:

    Time that we banned Trump and did not allow him into the country without a certificate of sanity that he did not write himself.

    I can't find an option to report posters rather than just specific posts.

    Glad it's not just me.

    Is it possible Telly Graph/Frank Gardener, Miniminter and their ilk are making money by starting inane threads?

    If you do a search on the thread titles, the same threads and opening posts are all over other internet forums, usually started a few minutes apart.

    We need to tie your hands up.

    Now, what sort of thing could we use to do that? :think:
