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 always feel like that when I'm up early (which is most mornings, lately :( ) but a strong back coffee or three, or four, works wonders :)

    I'm happy to make coffee for everyone, but as I don't drink the stuff myself you take your taste buds in your hands.

    Now if it's tea you are wanting, then I am your man. Unfortunately we only have decaff in the house for medical reasons, but if you drink enough it will keep you awake ... just from all the visits to the loo you will have to make. :D

    I've been trying to increase the amount of water I drink. Plus side, skin looks pretty good. Downside, I seem to have taken up residence in the bathroom, the amount of times I need to go :rotfl::rotfl::rotfl:

    Fruity, if that's the case I'll settle for a pint of best bitter next time you're paying! :D

    Well of course. Beer isn't just for breakfast you know.
