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

    Am annoyed because I got a pizza out of the freezer to defrost this morning (not one you can cook from frozen) and forgot I already had three convenience meals in the fridge. :mad:

    I had a couple of things to buy in WH Smith's last week, so while I was in there, I had a look round, and ended up buying three gadgety things as well.

    When I got home, removed the gadgety things from the Fort Knox packaging, they all turned out to be useless pieces of cheap carp.
    About £20 down the drain. :(

    Bloody Tesco :mad:

    Last time I went (fortnight ago) I bought a pack of hedgehog food. Today they had none on the shelves so I asked an assistant and she said it had been "withdrawn from sale due to the space being needed for the dog and cat Christmas stockings" :mad:

    So that meant an unscheduled diversion to Pets at Home where they did at least have some on the shelves, even though the price would seem to suggest it's gold plated :cool:

    This unscheduled diversion....the A4 was down to 1 lane while they do yet more road works causing a massive jam that stretched back a couple of miles so took ages to get there and back, that has made me very late getting home and now I can't be arsed to take the dog out :o

    And another thing, if my neighbours don't cut their grass soon there will be an unexpected bonfire when I set fire to it all :cool:
