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

    'Catch me up' is supposed to mean 'fill me in on what I have missed' but means the exact opposite. I thought it was another example of Americans ruining the English language, but it was used on the second series of Killing Eve by a Brit! Aargh!

    Super popular. Super delicious. Super hot. Super curious. Super happy.
    Super excited..etc.

    People who use the word 'Super' as an intensifier for adjectives are Super annoying.:cool:

    I understand that some blokes in certian circumstances are annoyed to hear "not tonight; I have a headache", but I've never heard it myself .... :whistle:

    Surely the most annoying (and crass) phrase of the last three years is 'The will of the people'. :mad:
