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

    Savvy, thanks for the information about the aid/developmental aid.

    I have to say you lost me when you was talking about Boris/Daily Mail. I never believe anything that is wrote in the Daily Mail... on point of principle :D

    If I am in the dentist's waiting room - which is the only time I really encounter the Mail these days - I find it impossible to read much of the Mail, it makes me so angry! Such biased, twisted articles. Their reporting over the Christchurch shooting earlier this year made me avoid their website for a while. I don't go there unless an article comes up relevant on a search.

    It's not just political parties with their deflection. Here is ITV's changing of the topic and avoidance of the Jeremy Kyle Show issues:

    Which means you believe some of them, it must do logically - and if what you say is true, that's a fact as well.

    oh god do not get me on the Jeremy Kyle show, I once spent a full weekend searching through all the shows trying to find a specific episode (work related)....I needed therapy afterwards!
