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

    I mostly stick to three topics on FB, steampunk, dinosaurs and how to kill people. Thankfully the people on my friend list also tend to stick to the same topics too. I can't be doing with all the boring small talk life stuff.

    There is some great stuff on Facebook but also some awful, awful trash!

    One of my pet hates is generic sad/sick person with the caption 1 like = 1 prayer or share if you have a heart or some other equally execrable comment. And people share this rubbish!

    And other ones that show a video of some sort - that actually sounds quite interesting - but written up as She Found An Old T-Shirt In Her Drawers - What Happened At 1.57 Had Me Gasping.

    DIE! DIE! DIE!

    But there are some great pages too - I F***ing Love Science is a good page.

    And the malamute thing I could watch over and over again!

    Well, I'm trying not to put stuff on like that annoying carp. This is just stuff that's on my feed that I thought maybe some non Facebookers might enjoy.

    I'm not sure whether non Facebookers can access something in a link to FB if they haven't got an account. So this stuff is also on Youtube and other places.

    If anyone finds anything interesting, strange, weird, cute etc and the link isn't to FB, please feel free to stick it in here :)
