    That's unusual. Never heard of them phoning anybody to request them to participate. Perhaps they're really short of panelists in your area?your

    Perhaps someone has unexpectedly dropped out so they need to fill the place quickly so they get the right amount of data.

    Survey letters delivered to neighbour
    My neighbour has given me two survey letters that were posted through his letter box. They were letters which would have gone through my letter box, not parcels, and no card left for me.

    Looks like TNS doesn't want to know about wrongly delivered mail on the full survey as there is no option to record this. I would have thought this should be in the remit of the survey as it is important that the postman delivers to the correct house. Otherwise the full survey is missing the final part of the service. Poor survey design.

    A test item was dropped through my letterbox by a neighbour who’d received it by mistake.
    How do I log this?

    You should log the date of receipt as 'unsure' because the item wasn't delivered to you by Royal Mail, even if your neighbour tells you when it was delivered to his address. You will still be able to enter all other information.

    I got the email but no invite. I've just sent a message to TNS telling them I want to stop doing the survey. There are too many cubes these days and I never get lucky with the Correctly delivered survey or the unaddressed.

    I haven't been able to go to the post office to send a cube because the road was being re-laid with tarmac so I couldn't park. I wrote to them in advance telling them the item would be delayed and I've had five messages from them asking me to send it. I've had enough. I'll miss the stamps but not the hassle. It was fun six years ago when I started but it's not any more.

    Have to agree it is certainly no fun now.
    In the last three weeks I have had 3 cubes and one box to post.
    I think it says 1 a month!!

    I have been saying this for a long time. We should boycott this until they stop the cubes and large items. They should be seperate for those who have too much time on their hands. They should also be better rewarded. They are exploiting us and deep down you know they are. #drop the cubes, comprendre.

    Hello. I’m new. Been training for four weeks, fifth week this week. Got my presentation pack and smarts for starting next week. Luckily I pass a post office and two post boxes every day. I was on waiting list for three years. A year ago I joined Kantar and photograph my post one week a months and then update it for the following three weeks. Does anyone else do that too? Finally, I got invited to do correctly delivered and this starts this week too!

    Any tips, I have read the FAQS but anything else I need to know?

    It sounds a good idea so that TNS can see the post codes that we have to try and decipher, or the marker pen that's been used to cancel the stamp. Or even the number of items we receive with the stamps unmarked so they could easily be reused.
