    Merge this board with Pensions board? 15th Oct 18 at 1:53 PM
    Hi folks

    A suggestion has been made on the Site Feedback board that we close this sub-board down and move auto enrolment threads over to the Pensions board.

    We want people posting on here to have the biggest change of getting a reply. If that's more likely to happen on the Pensions board we're happy to do that.

    Let us now what you think
    Could you do with a Money Makeover?

    Absolutely yes to merging it.

    Posts in this subforum usually get missed by the regulars. Plus, when they do get seen, people are frequently told to repost in the main pension section.

    The auto-enrolment section is a bit of a ghost town.

    Yes this sub-board is pointless.

    Same for the ISA sub-board within Savings and Investments which gets a bit more traffic.

    Yes, please. This board doesn't get enough attention from the forum members, therefore it should get merged into the parent board which has more posts and visitors.

    I think this suggestion has come up a few times before in comments, and is worth doing IMO

    Great idea to merge them. Nobody looks at the auto enrolment board

    I'm more concerned about how long such requests have taken to be actually noticed and processed.

    Another yes to merging from me.

    As I see it this sub-board is rarely used, and even when it is the questions aren'talway related to auto-enrollment.

    I agree that it should be merged with the main board

    Somewhat telling that this is the longest thread here...

    Just chased the decision in the associated site feedback thread.

    Two months later there are now nine threads higher than this one on the forum index - or an average of one thread being posted on per week.

    I'm sure that the main pension forum could cope with the extra traffic, so maybe time to go ahead and merge them?

    Interestingly, I only came on to the sub forum to agree because this post caught my eye (4 days after the previous post). Actually I never clicked on the forum,just clicked on the post link.

    If it helps....I agree.
