    It disappeared, MLE007, just like the last one in July. Maybe six months is its lifespan... Or maybe this part of the board is the online equivalent of the Bermuda Triangle, who knows?

    Quite a few established threads in various parts of the forum seem to be disappearing of late.

    It is claimed that accidental hitting of the SPAM button is to blame in at least some cases - very weird that they are not brought back though if its an accident and problem with the system.

    Spooky! It's gone again. I've not noticed a lot of spam on it so not sure why this thread disappears when some others don't.

    I've only had the one today that is intended for couples - I guess they have explicitly set it up that way so they get two halves of a couple and can put the results together.

    Unfortunately itís happened in other areas of the forum too, very annoying indeed. But following legal advice MSE now have policy of not restoring threads lost in this way because they are then deemed to be the publisher, and therefore liable for its entire content.

    Circle surprise
    I've been using Circle to cash out for a while, suddenly asks me for address and DOB before allowing withdrawal (done), then still won't allow and now asking for photo-ID!

    Anyone else had this?

    I believe this was mentioned on the previous thread, which I know does not help you now. If this happens to me, I will have to ask PA to reverse the payment so I can cash out via PayPal as I have no such I.D. and fail to see any need for it.

    I think Circle were inundated with UK customers when PP began charging fees and failed to realise this made them subject to UK law. They then seemed to go in for a load of frantic back-tracking as I, for one, received a deluge of T's & C's which were not advised at the time of signing up.

    Sorry I can be of no more help.

    Not yet; as I implied, dreading it. Have you tried contacting Circle? I have found them quite helpful in the past. Had a hell of a time actually signing up, being technologically challenged, as I am... At least my shame is on the previous thread.

    Seem to be stuck with the following message on the front screen for the site:

    We have made changes to how you request cashouts.
    You now need to make sure that your cashout email and preferred payment methods are set.
    You will also need to make sure that your cashout email and account are verified
    Your cashout email will automatically be used when you request a cashout.


    It constantly asks me to confirm:

    Please check that you have sufficient funds, your account is not on hold and that you have verified your account and cashout email.

    But at the same time it confirms my account is not on hold. If I indulge their request, I get an email requesting me to confirm my details. Even after confirming, the situation doesn't change.

    Also, haven't had a survey in over a week.

    Raffers, have you tried clicking on the Studies header at the top of your screen? The start a study button is no more; we now have to use the header instead, if that is your issue. HTH.
