    Just out of interest - was it the new 2017 one (8 stamps - Droids and Aliens) or a leftover 2015 one (12 stamps plus minisheet). I got the latter this summer - I would have thought there wouldn't be many of these as leftovers.

    I’ve been struggling to log in all evening. Still haven’t been managed to. I’m guessing they’ve got some sort of problem.

    I received the Christmas stamps this morning too. This is my first stint on this survey although I have been doing the unaddressed for years. Are the Christmas stamps an extra or is this the December stamps issue?


    I am coming to the end of my six months, started mid June. I am presuming the presentation stamps at the end of the 6 months will come too. Is this correct and do they notify me when it is ending?


    Thanks

I think the Christmas stamps go to everyone who is active on the main survey at the moment, can't say for sure as my 6 month stint usually ends in November(ish). The 6 months tends to be more approximate than accurate

    If you offer it on here, someone will probably be able to use it as sometimes posters do not receive the diary. Personally I find it useful.


    Alternatively why not give it to a charity shop.

    I got the diary the first three (I think) years then missed out last year, I assume because I was still on training. Like Skinster says - I find it handy to track what's due, missing and any oddities. Especially when reporting the oddities seems to be a bit of a black hole.


    I had the "Resolve a Query" lit up today, to tell me that an item had been reported as arriving on the same day as I had posted it and was I sure I posted on the right day. Well, I was sure until they asked! So I presume the receiving poster got their days confused when they logged it.


    Last week, I posted a Medium Brown to an address about 3 miles away. This week I'm sending a Medium White to the same person! Wonder if that's just random or someone is actually trying to find out if there's a problem in the local system?

    I am nearing the end of my first stint with them. If I am invited back for any more, do my registered post boxes clear from my acount. I don't like using the ones that I would rarely use in case I run out as it seems You are only allowed 10 but I could risk it as I am near the end if they clear.

    No everything is still there if you're invited back. I've trimmed my posting methods down, got rid of the ones I've used once.

    Thanks I did not think that I could delete them. I will have another look.


    Just looked and the reserve ones do not count in my list of 10 so that's great.

    I have an item to post today but upon checking which SMART to put in it gives me the same one as the one that went in fridays post. Do I just use another one?
