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

Strictly 2018!

    This will be interesting on Saturday night. As Sean was massively over scored on Saturday his scores will probably drop and depending on the public vote he could be in danger of going anyway.

    Ok, so Seann and Katya on ITT just now...
    Not sure what to make of it tbh, but it certainly made uncomfortable viewing.
    Zoe Ball appeared quite uncomfortable as well.

    The BBC probably chose her show to put them on to speak about it given that Zoe did very much the same thing when still married to Norman.

    wasn't that at the wrap party one year?
    Mortgage free as of 10/02/2015. Every brick and blade of grass belongs to meeeee. :j

    The (now ex-) girlfriend breaks the silence on ...

    The husband breaks the silence on ...

    The chief judge breaks the silence ...

    Errrm ...

    We both thought his and Katya's dance was way overscored. Apart from all the slow, bendy torso stuff, there were no real paso dance steps from him, and the TV cameras spent a long time on Katya when she was doing correct paso steps.

    I've wondered about a few marriages of convenience on the show.

    Yes I have always thought that.

    Needing to stay in the country to carry on working?

    Arlene Phillips has made reference to the Katya and Neil Jones having an open relationship.


    'Alluding to a deal they might have, the star - who has known Katya and Neil for years - said on Lorraine: “We all love Neil and Katya, there is a togetherness, in truth who knows what their relationship [is like]?

    “I know many people who have open relationships and we know nothing about Seann’s relationship with his girlfriend.” '

    That's why Neil has been very relaxed about the whole situation. With their open relationship they are both free to see other men.

    I agree, but Katya's 'solo' was when Seann was being connected to the flying harness - that was explained in the VT before their dance, Seann said that someone would rush on and connect the harness to the wires while Katya distracted the audience by dancing across the dance floor away from him, and Katya said that if their was a hitch with the wires she would have to just keep going until it was sorted
