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!

    Just back in after having Sunday tea with my parents... will have to watch the opening dance at the end.

    What did I miss? Looks like they haven't revealed any results yet - AND I didn't check on DS (because the result hadn't come in by 11.15 pm :rotfl:)


    You have missed nothing, apart from the first dance with same sex couples dancing together, which I am not at all okay with.
    The forest would be very silent if no birds sang except for the birds that sang the best

    Sympathy vote there for Katie. Charles deserves to be in, as do Faye and Giovanni.


    I voted for Katie and yes I suppose it was out of sympathy but I wanted to give her more of a chance.

    Oh, this delay is harsh on them. Bad enough having to wait for the second named pair.

    The format seems different this year.

    Evening. I didn't mind the same sex couples dancing and suppose it's the way Strictly will end up going. Maybe it's a hint of what's to come.

    I voted for Katie, Kate and Ranj so hope they all go through

    Edit : surprised Lee is in the dance off
    You're only young once, but you can be immature forever :D

    I thought Lee was quite good.

    Sounds like my teenage Saturday nights - the boys were only interested in the 'last dance' so for most of the night us girls danced round our handbags ...happy days!

    He deserved it on costume choice alone :rotfl::rotfl::rotfl:

    Joking apart, he wasn't the worst by a very long way, but I know that doesn't count for anything
