    Benefits and Tax Credits forum Sticky 25th Aug 18 at 4:05 PM
    The second post in the work and Benefits forum is a sticky with useful links. Unfortunately it is now very old and many of the links are missing or incorrect. I suggest it may be time for the post to be unstickied and retired. Obviously if someone wants to update it that would be great (but I am not volunteering).

    I was asked by a number of people when I was BG about updating that sticky and was getting down to work on it when MSE dispensed of my services. But I agree the sticky is way out of date and needs updating with regards especially to Universal Credit, calcotti it might be worth messaging one of the remaining BG's over there with your suggestion failing that MSE towers.

    It may also be time to update the name of the forum, since tax credits are being phased out. Plus, tax credits are benefits, so it's redundant, and it seems to be confusing people looking for help with their taxes.

    Thanks folks. Could you get in touch with a current board guide on that board about the sticky?

    We'll take a look and make a decision on the board name internally in MSE Towers.

    Thank you!

    Our Editorial team is waiting to hear back from HMRC for a date tax credits will be fully closed to new sign-ups. We'll take another look at this when we have more information.

    Thanks, but even if tax credits were continuing, the name would still be redundant. It's like having a forum called "fruit and apples". Isn't that the sort of thing that's meant to make editors itch?

    Or is the name designed to appeal to those who think that tax credits aren't really benefits, so they're not like those awful scrounging types on the other benefits?
