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've been Money Tipped!
    Found out the reason for the noise upstairs, neighbour has "family" staying for 10 days, so by her own admission (and I assume more than she says) 4 adults and 4 kids in a 2 bedroom property who wake at 8am every day and parents go to bed at midnight!

    Neighbour (the other side) who generally parks his works van so I can't see when I come out of the drive to take Mrs. to work in the morning. The neighbours the other side have mentioned it too.

    he has a £30k car parked on his drive, bought a year ago which he has never driven, and another £30k car outside his house bought 18 months ago, which I have seen him drive 2-3 times. Plus his work van. And he goes to Sainsbury's on the bus.

    Why?

    I feel like I'm supposed to buy a throw to extend the life of my couch, but I'm also worried that it'll make my couch look like it's haunting my living room.
    Nah - get a collection of furry throws in different colours, two big "eyes" and have a large cooperative multi-coloured pet, that doesn't need a walk, a vet or a litter tray... Hide the feet in charity shop slippers (or trainers or whatever no longer loved footwear you can tolerate) and let any visitors boggle?

    Of course, my 'Which Blue Peter presenter are you?' thread is in a different category altogether. :D
    I promise I won't start threads on 'Which newsreader are you?', 'Which historical person are you?', 'Which cake are you?', etc. etc.
