    Coming to the end of my current six months on the live panel and it has been the easiest I have ever had. An average of only 2-3 to mail each week and in the whole six months only 2 trips to the post office with a cube. I am not complaining realy, but being retired in my late 70s it gets me out of the house when I have reason to go to the mail box and must admit in poor weather conditions I sometimes stay home when I have no mail to post.

    Managed to sign up for the unaddressed survey for the first time - any tips form seasoned surveyers, what do I need to keep. All advice welcome.

    Keep items that arrive in the week before your round starts in case they arrive earlier than expected. (Very unlikely, I'd say.) You'll then be able to record correct day of delivery if they have been received early.

    Be aware that online they will present you with options of leaflets which are not delivered so don't think every tile is genuine. You'll just have to confirm in due course that it has not been received.

    You can put things into your recycle container once you have recorded them - but you may like to keep the "Other" items (ie those not pictured and which were probably put through your letterbox by someone other than Royal Mail) just in case they were delivered early until the end of the survey.

    Thanks I was going to phone them in the morning but I will give it a bit longer. Perhaps they are late sending them out.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.

    I,ve never had a diary despite being a very regular panelist . Frankly I'd find an additional supply of stamps more useful, perhaps some second class ones which could be used for Christmas cards or non urgent mailings.

    Wonder if anyone can help me!

    A member of staff has left work recently to move to another job and we have found they are getting a number of letters and packages with a sealed plastic pack in containing a small chip and a battery. I think it might be something to do with what you are all talking about on here! I has a sticker on it with a barcode and the words Royal Mail Domestic along with a couple of codes.

    Is this the thing you are all talking about, and if so, what on earth do I do with them! I have just got three through!

    If you can't make contact, suggest you phone Kantar RMS on 0800 015 3150 to advise them of the situation.
    I am surprised that she was having them delivered to her work address as a personal panellist as they do have business panellists as well.
