    Hi all,
    I apoke to the Rm survey team this afternoon as I got no reply to my emails and they've said that fully active participants will start receiving their diaries from next week so well done those that already have them! For others like myself where your stint is coming to an end this month we are now considered 'Active dormant' and won't get them automatically!! Apparently we are not considered fully active even if we are still posting and receiving until the end of the month
    I was advised to check back on Mon Jan 8th 2018 and if there are any left or returned they will distribute them to active dormant participants.

    Got my diary today. They are actually a really nice quality diary so it is a shame to waste it. I'll be taking it to the charity shop as per another posters suggestion.

    I emailed them about the presentation packs. They replied to check about the one when I started if I had recieved it or not; I hadn't. But also said that they were not sending out Christmas presentation packs this year!!!
    I think that I will call it a day when this term finishes.

    I received my diary and christmas stamps the week of Christmas, however I have been told that my stint will end next week. It said I could reapply in 6 months time though?
    However Im guessing that is dependant on vacancies in my area though, and not automatic - do you need to reapply again as newbie?
    Always on the lookout for a great deal, bargain or offer...

    As Runnerduck said you do sometimes receive another email almost immediately asking you if you want to contine if they are short of participants in your area.
    If not, you will receive another email usually in about 6 months asking you if you want to restart - no need for you to re-register on the site. Be aware however, that the rest period does vary and some posters have had much longer rest periods.


    If you are registered to do the Unaddressed and Correctly Delivered surveys you can continue with those while "resting".

    Thank you for that (about the diary), I was hoping to get a diary, but my two weeks' training ran up until Christmas, so I guess I missed out. I'll try my luck with an e-mail.

    I prepared this week's items last week, but I've input the SMART info wrong and now can't change it.

    Should I email TNS to tell them? I was thinking it might get sorted out when the receiving panelist logs the item with the actual SMART code.

    It's just that when I go on to say that I posted the item and it asks if I put a certain SMART with an item and I didn't, it only gives me a choice of 2 SMARTs that aren't used, or to select "none added". I tried to select "none added" but that doesn't work and it doesn't allow me to say that I sent the item.

    They usually take ages to respond so thought I might get a quicker reply on here from panelists more experienced than I.

    Simple answer.....open the envelopes and put the correct ones in. Then reseal the envelopes (with evo-stik if you have it). I have done this before without any probs.
