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 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.

    I have seen it many times, people are provoked to a response and then the person doing the provoking presses the report button.

    This is more of a comment than an 'irritation' as I feel pretty chilled about it all (maybe it's my thick skin)! :)

    I agree with Colin on this :eek: and hence my silence on occasions when I feel provocation is intended (for what reason I don't know).

    My personal aim has been to be friendly, pleasant and non-confrontational with all forum members .... I come here to relax and have fun, not to squabble .... On certain threads I don't feel welcome and am ignored anyway (either with or without use of the ignore button), always allowing for exceptions of course.

    I watch stuff I recorded on my Sky+ box and watch it 3-6 weeks after its recorded. I see promo clips for tv shows I think oooh I want to watch this. I find out either it's no longer available to download on demand services or first episode to download is episode 3 or 4

    I think he does it on purpose to get payback for the time I drank all of his expensive whisky. He'll be leaving for work and as he reaches the door he'll turn around, like Columbo, and say "oh, there's just one more thing....I ate all the muffins".

    Was that American muffins or English muffins (the sort you toast and eat dripping with butter)?

    Don't know, mildly irritating though isn't it!! Presumably the last one was deleted, as my post count is considerably lower.

    It's still there the last time I checked.
