    Posting times
    Has anyone else noticed recently that posting times seem to be before last collection for all items rather than either before miday, after miday or before last collection as previously

    Still collected by RM. Just not a sturdy due to more secure indoor location.

When I worked at King's College Hospital; there was one in the front entrance that was marked as such and collected once a day around 5pm. These presumably wouldn't have a number and information sheet (so you couldn't log it with TNS) but the local collection office would have it listed on a round somewhere.

    They sent me a smart as they could tell from their records that I am running low. Maybe the reason for this is that I finished my stint weeks ago.

    I received a card from Royal Mail saying they had an item of mail for me with insufficient postage on it. I had to send the card back with £2 worth of stamps and they would send me my letter. I did this and received a test item so I contacted TMS asking for £2 refund. They told me that I should have contacted them before sending my own stamps to get the item - I'm wondering how I could have possibly known it was a test item as it could easily have been personal post addressed to me. Most odd!

    They said they are going to send me some stamps to reimburse me.

    Received a test letter today, which is rather strange as it's a Sunday of a holiday weekend.

    Looked outside but couldn't see a Postman so I assume it was misdelivered yesterday to someone who then put it through my door.

    Just logged it and of course the site queried the date as being a Sunday, don't worry Kantar, I'm as confused as you!

    Anyone else not too keen on the fact that receivers' Christian names are now being revealed to the sender and not just first initial anymore? It's only online and not on the printed sheets/labels

    I like the new system but some people prefer the old one. Now it's settled down a bit it's not too bad. Welcome back Moll. I'm still waiting for my 6 month break, they keep telling me it's due but then they keep sending me items to post LOL.

    I've lost track. This current long posting wave seems to have gone on for ever and I,ve just received another batch of five items to post. It may be that a lot of people have dropped out, either because posting the cubes is becom8ng increasingly difficult to fit 8nto their routine or they have lots of blank spaces th eu can't fill in certain areas so the rest of us have to make up the slack for them to have sufficient numbers to justify their regulatory returns for efficiency I itoeing purposes.

    I know the cubes are necessary so their parcel delivery performance can be equally measured but to be honest I'm beginning to find that part of the survey an increasing chore, not to mention the fact that I,m sure the person in the post office now knows what I'm doing so I'm probably marked down is their book as one of the "snitchers"

    As I live in a small place I only have one PO I can go too & I feel I stick out like a sore thumb with them.

    I finished retraining two weeks ago and am now on hold waiting to go back on the main survey. Usually that means I get my first real posting pack within a couple of weeks but nothing so far - wonder if they are having issues with switching participants around after their 6 month(ish) stint? Given some people seem to have been kept on the main survey for longer than usual...
