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 wouldn't normally kill them but one of the nests was hanging inside an ottoman type garden storage box where I keep the fence paint. I mean, the cheek of it, preventing me from getting at me paint!

    Anyway, I had no choice but to zap it :(

    And the other nest was in the ground right where my garden joins next door's and she has a builder coming in to re-point the walls of her garage, which is the boundary between the properties. It had to go :(

    I know. Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.

    You could always paint the corpses and mount them on something as an art installation! :D

    Just because your name begins with a 'P' doesn't mean you can add them willy nilly ;)

    Rather than having a bad start of your day, you should focus on other things that can be improved. As you made a wrong thread here, it should not be here as it does not seem to save your money in any way. So just post the related threads.

    This board is called The Money Savers Arms and is the non money saving part of the forum. It's for general chat and lighthearted, non money saving things.

    For money saving tips there are plenty of other boards.

    I think the post was simply a vehicle for the website in their sig.

    Oh really? Well spotted, I didn't notice that, I was more annoyed at a newbie trying to run the board :rotfl:

    Being the PINNACLE OF PEADOM that I am, I am pperfectly entitled to pplace a pp in any pposition that I have a pparticular ppropppppppensity to pperform, so pperhapppps you would not ppersist in ppointing out any supppppperfluous ppeas.

    I could have told you to pppppppp off, but am far too ppppppolite to address you in such a pppejoratve manner.

    Instead, I shall just go humpppph!
