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

    Well, it's better than "Kulture".
    Always ask yourself one question: What would Gibbs do?

    The only Xander I've ever heard of was a secondary character in Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

    I would maybe call my goose Xander.
    'Xander The Gander' has a certain ring to it ....

    There's also a good actor called Xander Berkeley, he was in 24 and The Walking Dead.
    Unless I say otherwise 'you' means the general you not you specifically.

    I don't like Alexander Armstrong, and I don't think Xander suits him.

    That completely aside, I quite like Xander as a stand-alone name. Don't worry about it being a short version..... several 'accepted' and ordinary names are actually diminuatives or derivations of other names.
    In some languages it is a stand-alone name, anyway.

    Personally, I prefer Xander to Xan, and I like unusual names, but who cares what I or anyone else thinks? It's what you like that counts.

    If you want to call yourself or your child Xander or Xan, go for it!
    It's got a lot of history!

    If you prefer it with a Z, go for that too! I think that how a name looks is as important as how it sounds and what it means.

    So is Grayling, which I think is a lovely name for a girl.
