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

    Doubt you guys could cope with me and my three ladies though :rotfl::rotfl:
    I have never had to cope with more than one lady dog at a time but what a way to go ;) :rotfl:
    We met Roxy last night and dad had his hands full keeping me off her, she normally teases me then runs away but she was a bit subdued last night and after some play she let me get on top but dad noticed :(

    Good morning all and one. It's a dull and damp day by here today.
    Although it's not raining at the moment the grass is long and wet so we are having to dry Ellie's feets when she comes inside.
    I married my cousin. I had to...
    I don't have a sister. :D

    Dads are boring like that. So are mums when their companions find some fox poo. Unbelievable, isn't it?

    We have a plethora of fox poo if anyone is suffering from a shortage.

    Our Ellie actually prefers to eat cat poo but Auntie/MiL's poodle will eat fox, cat, and even her own poo if you let her. :eek:

    Fruity it was okay for us yesterday, but today has been ridiculous with strong winds and very blustery showers!

    Savvy, I can't get my head around the conversations either - that's why I've kept quiet! :cool:

    So quiet in this pub :(
    It's a wonder that it stays open.

    Good morning all and one.

    It is dull and overcast by here on the Riviera today.

    I have a predicament. I oiled my Aunty/MiL's wooden kitchen worktop but it hasn't dried. Whatever are we to do?

    Stay out of the kitchen :)


    A good excuse to go out for the day, I'm sure that a run in the country followed by a bar lunch somewhere nice would go down a treat with all :T
