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

    Morning :wave:

    My morning started with a rant at BT (they charged me £96 for something they shouldn't have :mad:) and dropped the car off for more expensive work (3 tyres + a few bits from the last MOT). The day can only get better...I hope! :j

    Oh, yes, and the sun is out soleilfun.gif :cool2:

    Hope your day gets better as it goes along ...

    I suppose the only thing that is good about living around where I do is that we don't have any BT, Virgin, Talk Talk etc to cause problems.

    Much worse ... For internet Karoo (run by Kingston Comms)

    We have no BT lines around here so there is not other internet providers that use BT lines such as Talk Talk etc.

    There is no cable around here either so no Virgin etc.

    We just have a very expensive monopoly that gives rubbish speeds. Well at the moment, they are rolling out fibre to properties rather than fibre to cabinet like BT but its a slow process and where I live isn't on the list to get it yet and that list goes up to the end of 2017 :(

    I'm sorry to break this to you, Colin, but we were all completely nuts WAY before the sun made its long overdue appearance :eek: :p

    Just heard on the TV, speaking about Boris:

    "Can you imagine him in a meeting with Vladimir Putin?"

    :D

    Well, at least he has the right name for it!
