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..It's the missus, she's an avid Fan of 'The Wizard of Oz'. It's kind of an annual pilgrimage. After the Tin Mine I take her to the Zoo to visit the Lions.:beer:

    Had severe insomnia this week so I am off for the longest walk today. That I can manage :D
    Light travels faster than sound.

    This is why some people seem as bright until you hear them.

    Morning all. Lots of aching muscles this morning after yesterday's strenuous outdoors spring cleaning ... scrubbed the patio, cleaned up the garden furniture, gathered fallen leaves, swept the walkways and hosed down the walls and windows.


    Forecast looks quite good so I'm planning a lazy day just pottering around the garden doing some light pruning. :)

    You not got a karcher Dave?

    No Colin, can't really justify one for the little use it would get. I simply used the good old fashioned method of applying buckets of water with washing up liquid and bleach (to kill algae) and then the Armstrong method with a stiff broom to scrub it all. Then followed up with the hosepipe and a pistol attachment which can deliver quite a forceful jet as we have high mains pressure here.

    It did a pretty good job too.

    I've got a pressure washer but it makes soooooo much mess I usually end up doing it with a hose and a broom. It uses tons of water too which isn't good when you're on a meter.

    Much easier with a patio cleaner attachment. I got mine at Aldi
