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

Strictly 2018!

    I do like pie though and I like fishcakes.

    Pie is the best food ever, I could eat it every night.

    I have a very specific eating method too, First I eat the puff pastry top, then I eat the meat, then I mash the gravy up with the shortcrust base. Heaven!

    Fishcakes are good too, especially haddock.

    I enjoy watching a tall man dance in tails, even if he is dad-waltzing :p
    I can cook and sew, make flowers grow.

    Diet cola: I keep telling myself it is slightly healthier than wine, but...._party_ ...wind.

    I sometimes buy pukka pies. I don't eat them like that though but I always do mash with them. I make a killer turkey and ham pie every christmas with the leftovers.

    I get conflicted when I have mash with pie, I need some of the gravy to mix with the mash and worry there won't be enough to mix with the pastry lol. Life in the fast lane eh.

    I've not warmed to Kate at all, not sure why.
