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've been Money Tipped!
    The men who don't exist are noisy again upstairs, I guess the row of cars that pulled up and large group of people that got out of them with screaming kids don't exist either (the neighbour don't forget told me she was single, had no male friends ever visit, her babysitter was always alone in house, and her kids never run around and just use tablet and phones in bedroom)


    Heard one kid scream and cry, another stomp about energetically whilst making heavy breathing/excited sounds, men laughing then clapping their hands.


    Oh and that dog that is an angel has been barking non stop for over 5 minutes and heard a female scream at it.

    I keep track of accounts on Microsoft Money.
    Just had a look and I haven't reconciled my main current account with Bank Statements since the end on November ... Job for a rainy day probably methinks.

    I still can't work out why my avatar moves in time to whatever music I have playing! It's creepy. At the moment, I'm listening to Zorba The Greek and Skelly is moving in harmony ..... :eek:

    Are you playing the music on the same device?




    I've just tried a n Amen Corner number, and it wasn't really dancing in time to that.

    Maybe it's just your perception of it?

    Yes ... do you think that's the reason?

    It can't be the reason, because the tune I played was on my iPad, too.






    Edit. No.... just tried Choo Choo Ch'Boogie, and it's not in time with that, either.

    I think it's just the way you're seeing it.
