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

    Thanks tweets, just put the oven on to cook brunch grub for the rest of the week - quorn sausages, hash Brown's which I'll have with egg every day. Wetherspoons will be coffee only if I go there. Plus piggies for WiFi and a mushroom pizza for me tonight, plus boiled potatoes.

    Marmie - sorted your bathroom planning out? Don't forget rugby starts on Friday ... :j

    Glad you made it home safely without incident and walking too. I bet you were frozen. We had 5 minutes of heavy snow at lunchtime and had a few flurries an hour or so ago. It's definitely not going to come to anything in this area, although I can see lots of snow on fells near us from the bedroom window. I'm just hoping it's not too hard a frost overnight as the ground is very wet.

    I was frozen so was fur hood on my parka .

    I have had a bath and have warmed up got me jimmies and dressing gown on .

    Hope you don't get it awful stuff.

    Walked just short 15,000 steps today so that's good.

    I am getting there........Just a few things left to decide on and then I can start to order bits and get on.....Its going to be more of a wetroom.... I have a bath in the upstairs bathroom but I don't use it. The boy had a bath in it once, but I think he prefers to shower with me..:D

    They're a right soggy mess those fur hoods when they're drenched. Somehow they always seem to dry out and look OK though.


    You sound as though you're lovely and cosy now. I hope you don't get much more snow tonight. If you do, school may be closed tomorrow and you can stay indoors all snuggly wuggly.
