    As needananswer said probably all taken by nightworkers, (or the insomniacs) so that will rule me out as well. Really annoying as they are so easy to do & the 5L2S is very handy.


    I have just messaged Kantar and asked them if it would be possible to vary the times the invitations are sent out so that we might all have a chance to be able to do them.


    I will update if/when I receive a reply.

    Hello
    We are sorry that this is the case for you.
    Unfortunately the time that the invites are sent is generated automatically by the system.
    The issue we have is when the invites are being send during the working day everyone is trying to log into their account at the same time which then causes system errors for everyone.
    I am unaware of any changes that are going to be implemented going forward regarding the times that the invites are being sent, however i will pass on your feedback to the relevant team.
    Sorry for any inconvenience caused.


    Perhaps everyone who dislikes the new timing should write in & then perhaps they will think again. At least with the old website the invitations came out at different times of the day so there was more chance of getting one of them.

    Well ive certainly thrown myself into the deep end with this this time , Just rejoined after the 6 month lay off ,,,,,,,,,,,,, had a few email offers to do the correctly delivered , but the thing had vanished before I could get on ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,then one night , both the correctly and unaddressed invitations came through at stupid o'clock , so I put me down for both ,,,and yay got on both ,,then saw the new logging system and thought , oh s***t , don't know what im doing yet ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, plus ive NEVER done the unaddressed before so will have to read the tutorials , got a few letters received , logged them fine , I thought yay , im ok with this new system , I can do it . , then the FIRST letter I had to post ,,,,,,,,,,,, on the system they hadn't added my post box on , and as its stupid oclock in the morning when the mail gets collected , it was too late to go and find the post box ID, so first strike , I missed the first one to post , dumbbbbbb . Anyway have the number now , and managed to add the extra post box easily onto the system so hopefully that part is good now , ill have to hold the letter and post next week , I haven't got a stamp to my name , ( And that's my biggest expense at the moment buying stamps ) so I need to get to grips so they'll keep me on and ill get some stamps to use . At least ill know my way round the new system before im finished lol xx

    You shouldn't be buying stamps! Did you receive a posting pack? That will have the envelopes you need to post with stamps already on them.

    Currently doing Unaddressed survey, received 3 leaflets yesterday. One was on their list the other two weren't so noted them under the Other option. Today they appeared on the list so I put down that they'd arrived yesterday. I don't know if that's right but I can't find an easy way to go back to adjust what you've already told them!

    sorry ive not explained it very well . I meant stamps for me , for my own use , I rely a lot on the stamp books they send us for sending out mail , ( To put on my own letters ( My hobby is penpalling ) and because of the lay off , id completely run out , and stamps are flippin expensive to buy now , I have the stamps on the mail to post for Kantar , and when I received my book of 1st and large letter stamps its like receiving gold to me lol, but im starting from scratch again so don't have many left , don't want them to kick me off

    Hi

    I agree that everyone should contact them.

    So, their system can't cope when panellists log in during the day but works great when a few log in at 1am.

    I also got the Correctly Delivered invite last night after 1am - fortunately I'm a night owl so I grabbed it straightaway. Not sure why they sent me three identical invites though - I think they did that with the last Unaddressed Mail invite as well...

    Same for me. All gone at 5.45am. I have seem some panelists state that the full survey is too much work for too little and so are always not available for full survey but do correctly delivered and unaddressed. Perhaps these surveys should be made available to these panelists only after the opportunity has been offered first to those who also do the full survey and the spaces have not been filled.

    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.

    Anyone want 5 smarts?

    Hi for the Royal Mail survey when gathering data do you have to log in the time the letter arrived at your house or just the date you received the letter?

    Just wandering if I would have to sit in all day waiting for the post man
