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

    Hi Fruittea, I felt under the weather earlier as well but did a bit of fence repair in the garden with my wife. After that we sat in the sun and enjoyed a lunchtime glass or two of grape juice! I feel ok now, after a nap.

    Visiting my mum soon - sister visiting from Bulgaria and should be staying there a few nights.

    Glad you're feeling better Sleazy. Sometimes it helps you to get out and about. I'm having a lazy pizza for dinner tonight as can't be bothered to do too much.


    Hope Bubbs nose job went well. No doubt she'll let us know as soon as she can.


    Rain predicted for tomorrow but hopefully I'll be able to get out in the garden.


    Have a good evening.

    Just got back - nice to chat with sis and planning to go for a brunch / lunch with her later in the week with WiFi.

    Mum not too bad today - chilly here now though. heating is on again and I've changed into Jim Jams already! Bed @ about 10pm i suppose, no doubt Wifi will have a horror movie to watch.

    When we first wed, she used to say "why do I need a horror movie when I got you"? :eek:. Honoured, I'm sure .... :cool:

    Sitting on my own watching Travelman, with Castor and Pollux nodding off on the curtain pole.

    Mmmm, juicy mango. The best mango juice I have ever had was in Egypt, you practically needed a spoon for it it was so thick, and it was absolutely delicious :D
    What is this life if, full of care, we have no time to stand and stare
