Smugshot: Win a camera in our travel photo competition Rate your child's school report Crusaders conundrum - what went wrong? How has breast cancer affected your life? What did you think of 2015 Budget? Should we teach religion in schools? What next after Campbell Live? What does it mean to you to be a New Zealander? Is it time to vote reality TV off? How do you manage savings?

For whatever reason, we seem to think of living in substandard flats as a rite of passage. If you haven't stuffed a window frame with newspaper to stop it rattling, you haven't really lived.

We want to hear your worst flatting horror stories. Indoor rain, load-bearing mould, unhinged landlords and frightening flatmates - we want it all. 

Whether it was years ago in your Scarfie days, or you're still living it, let us know just how bad it was, and send us the pictures to prove it.

Was it character building, or would you prefer to have spent those years in the warmth and dry? 

Do you have some tips for people still flatting on how they can make the best of a bad situation?
