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.

  • When our dog stayed at the kennels for the first time and came home with a high pitched bark for two days, I think she was imitating the dog in the next kennel!

    My team on a goalfest yesterday. I'd like to think that Harry isn't a long term fallout of the win.

    I take my 96 year old mother out shopping every week. We frequently lose each other. My mother was standing looking lost. A young male assistant asked her if she was Ok. She responded she had lost her daughter. He replied - no problem - I will get you another daughter online!!!!!!!!! My mother replied no thank you - one is enough!!!!

    The latest from Kellyanne Conway: “Surveillance could be conducted with microwaves that turn into cameras. We know this is a fact of modern life.”

    Yep, transformer microwave cameras, just a fact of modern life.

    Combine that with Sean Spicer explaining how when Trump said "Wiretapping" in his Tweet he did not actually mean Wire Tapping. The regime is almost beyond parody now......

    Going through kitbags of old clothes & finding I now have a smart pair of trousers for every day of the week. And an assortment of shirts, a lot of which are nice brands!
    This diet malarkey is paying off. Not having to go clothes shopping is a massive bonus!
