IIRC, MissA's Diary of a Benefit Claimant closed recently on 1000 posts.
With respect, I really do think that Benefits should stand alone.
Money and Legal may well cover house transactions, bereavement, estrangement, wills, all sorts of very valid issues.
It was my experience that the Benefits attracted so much targetted advice, much based on personal experience or background training.
This was able to reach readers quickly and simply without having to wade through so many other issues.
The forum only came into existence in October 2021.
Was it really so poorly used?
I worry that posters needing help, often very quickly, may fall by the wayside before being spotted by someone who has the appropriate advice.
What do others think?
I would ask FN to please re-instate the stand-alone forum.
