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

    Stuff that turns up in your house and you have no idea where it came from.

    Yesterday it was a fork in a design/pattern I have never seen before. It was just sitting there in the fork pot. Pretending it’s been hanging out with all the other forks for years.
    Where has it come from?!

    Ask it but be prepared for a Forky Tail :eek:

    To be fair to the driver I think the fact it was partially his fault made him make a daft choice of dumping me in the middle of some Nast traffic he knew after the light as it was an express bus I would have ended up miles away, he did not really have time to refund the money, it was not a pleasant situation though :eek:

    Edit: Not sure where the Fairy Lights quote came from :cool: be nice if she returned to these parts though

    I've been wondering a lot recently where she is.


    That quote.... that's the very first post on this thread.

    I might have caught it when scrolling, I think she does log on occasionally but does not come to these parts, maybe a little blackbird could persuade her :cool:

    I get that since I stopped wearing specs.
    So much that I can see freckles on my nose that I was not aware of before and my eyes seem to get drawn to them, I worry that I will go cross-eyed :eek:

    My irritation for this morning is that I can't think of where to go on our long walk today, I have nothing specific to do.

    Yeah there is not much work in here at the moment as well, I am thinking what I can do today as well..I am also wondering why my ip is blocked at home again :cool: I did think at one point I might have been banned for posting a rude Postman Pat video yesterday :rotfl:

    Painful spasms in my left hand probably caused by having it in an awkward position all morning yesterday.
