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

    Me neither, but apparently you have a few!
    Unlikely to be as cheap as where I'll be, though. ;)
    Did think about uprooting to there at one time, but I quite like Stafford too.
    If WiFi tires of me may buy a place there - wouldn't stay here. :rotfl:

    Yes I know the Lord John but not been in. It looks a bit rough from the outside but will give it a go next time I'm in Stroud.


    Well pancakes and curry tonight - very nice.

    They do vary quite a bit fruittea unfortunately.
    Ours is ok, but some I wouldn't want to go in again.
    A quick visit to the loo can sometimes give you an idea what it'll be like ;)

    I need to get out more instead of spending so much time on here vegetating and getting bored I suppose.

    Rain here today - so on the bus I think. WiFi been shopping on eBay - told her to give Sainsbury's as a drop off point in case I'm not here for delivery, probably better than waiting here for mail of any type that doesn't arrive when you want it, then you get inundated with junk mail that you don't! :rotfl:

    Anyway, moan over, so 'Good Morning and a Happy Wednesday to you all'
