    Is it a sign of positive change......


    I've noticed now for over a year a gradual drop in usage of this forum since the days of my own IVA 2009-2015.


    Maybe there are other better forums or maybe IVA's are not as popular....


    just a thought

    I think the use of forums in general has fallen off in recent years in favour of Social Media.

    Debt (and Debt Relief) certainly hasn't gone away recently, I'm sorry to say...

    IVAs are actually on the increase, 50% rise over 2 years.

    Have to say use of the debt free wannabe board is always high.

    Once a strategy is decided, people tend to just get on with it, unless they have specific questions to ask.
    I'm a Board Guide on the Debt-Free Wannabe, Credit File And Ratings, and
    Bankruptcy And Living With It, boards. "I volunteer to help get your forum questions answered and keep the forum running smoothly".
    Board guides are not moderators and don't read every post. If you spot an abusive or illegal post then please report it to forumteam@moneysavingexpert.com. Any views are mine and not the official line of MoneySavingExpert.com.

    For free debt advice, contact either : Stepchange, National Debtline, or, CAB.
