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

    Good morning rattly timing chains!

    I remember those indicators Pyxis. State of the art they were too! Saved putting your arm out of the window. I never could see the point of signalling 'left' in a RH drive car with your arm!

    Hadn't thought about the doors thing, but makes sense.

    Ooh! Arm signals! I forgot about those! I had to learn those!
    Was tested on them in my test!

    I preferred the circling left turn style to the inside pointing across to the left style.

    I just remember thinking, right! Time to stop then falling asleep with this...

    http://www.pabobo.com/index.php/en/the-whole-range/Produit/41/3/endormir/mimi-bunny.html

    For clarity, it's one of the products we sell and we had to visit the warehouse last week to weigh and measure all the products for WEEE and logistics purposes. The bunny could not be repackaged so I brought it home. It makes a fabulous colour changing lightshow on the ceiling!

    I stopped at a bottle and a half.....

    Morning all, I'm just tired, though I did have a glass of wine last night, to celebrate having a fridge that can actually chill wine again.

    Ah, bless! :D

    Perhaps you could sell it to adults as a cure for insomnia? :D
