    I give my diary to my mother-in-law - I use an online calendar for appointments etc but she prefers a small physical diary. I would never just throw it out - its not recyclable due to mixed materials. Either donate it to a charity shop, or sometimes there are people on here who haven't got a diary due to not being on the main survey at the moment who would love one.

    I feel a little overworked compared to the past.
    Three items posted last week including a cube. Another three this week. Four items next week including a cube.

    2 cubes in 3 weeks , and 10 items to post in 21 days seems excessive to me.

    3 or 4 items a week isn't overworked. I'm always quite pleased when I am only get three. Don't think I've ever had any less than that all the time I e been doing the panel.

    I usually get 4 a week and if not it is 3.
    I haven't had a cube for a few weeks, which is a shame as it's a nice walk to the post office and I'm happy with the extra payment.

    You usually only receive the diary if you are an active panellist when they are sent.

    I agree a usual week for me is 4 or 5 items normally over 3 or 4 days, I occasionally post on 5 days.

    I've seen some of the diaries on ebay.

    I can get anything from 2-7 items to post - it varies a lot. I have 5 items this week but only had 2 items last week. Averaging no more 2 parcels a month at the moment - don't think they dare send me any more as I complained last year when I got 3 parcels in two weeks to post. The blurb states 1-2 parcels per month so I wouldn't be happy to get more - especially given my nearest post office is up a really long steep hill

    Don't do anything with it until you have checked the online version when its available. That should be available online on Monday I believe

    For the first time I received the diary as I am always rested when it's been posted in the past. A nice surprise. Never received the Xmas stamps and always seem to be training when the Easter sweets sent out so I miss them too. Hey ho....

    Also signed up for CDS - hope it has gone through OK because problem in the town & local villages & internet is almost impossible to use.

    I am not currently on the main survey but received a diary this morning in the post.

    For those who were concerned about their star ratings under Your Contribution - there is an article on the front page of the website that explains why you might not be getting stars if you are using the app. I can't copy and paste it but the upshot is to get full stars for Verified Items you need to:



    a) be using the app to enter your items

    b) be entering your items standing next to your posting location

    c) your phone is connected to the internet whilst you are entering the item

    d) the app has permission to access your location.


    If one or more of these things is not happening then you may not get full stars, or any stars sometimes.


    Hope that helps to explain things - it said to drop them a message if you are having problems.
