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 watched it just now on catch up. It's become very far fetched, both with Dom
    being Ange's son and Freida treating umpteen people in the basement.
    I started watching Holby from the first episode as I was a latecomer but not really enjoying it and the unwatched episodes are mounting up. Think I might knock it on the head and just stick to the new ones.




    :eek::eek::eek:

    I'm in America so missed last two episodes.

    Plots sounding worthy of Eastenders. :)

    I agree, would Ange have been allowed to see the person her baby went to if she was only 14 when it happened! Freida gone again.

    I wonder if Dom will be taking a break from work now?


    So Zosia is lying about the age of the baby?


    I don't know why but Donna irritates me in every episode she's in.

    Back now. And loads of stuff to catch up with. I'm wondering whether to bother with Holby. I'll probably tune in soon enough.

    Out next Tuesday evening, anyway.

    So tired yesthat we just managed to catch up with the final episode of Shetland. Got Baptiste to watch tonight, then - priority- the first episode of Line of Duty.

    Where's Lofty ? No face timing him or texts ?
    Zosia, never thought about age, knew she was hiding something.
    As for Donna... Where's the sideline gone? No mention of Botox lately

    Welcome back. I've not heard of any of your programs. I struggle to catch up with Corrie, Holby, Casualty, Call the Midwife, a Yorkshire Vet . Vera has been deleted, the episodes were too long.

    Looks like we've all forgotten to comment on the latest or maybe not watched?

    Gory surgery scenes on Holby this week. I can't believe that anyone pregnant falling down a flight of stairs would pretend they were ok straight after.

    And would Charlie really get David into trouble to the point he was asked to leave just to cover up for Duffy? I wouldn't have thought his character would have done that.

    There was a bit of a crossover in Casualty with Fletch.

    Looks like Zosia is off to meet Ollie. And Casualty has Charlie too protective as you say, not his usual self. Now the secret is out.
    I'm still watching old Holby but lagging behind. Some interesting characters in it but some are a bit wooden. The by pass machine looked like one of those tubs you get popcorn in

    I was wondering about Lofty, but I remember something about taking his grandmother on a trip of her lifetime.

    I'm foolishly happy that Zosia's baby is from a visit to Ollie.

    How do you think Dom's sister is going to find out about him? I wonder if there will be a medical drama and a need for someone to own up they are related?
