    Just had the email to say my current stint is coming to an end. Quite surprised, as it only started in July. Anyone else being finished early?

    According to the Dashboard:
    December stamp incentives are being included in the packs we're sending out later this week with items for posting in week commencing 29th September.
    I presume they mean 29th October. In previous years this has included a booklet of Christmas stamps - but as this year's design isn't out until November will they give us last years? Or not bother...

    Meanwhile I had two problems with incoming items yesterday. One Small White had been through the system twice - it had two overlaid postmarks for 10th and 11th. Another had a 2nd class - but the insert specified 1st class. Which the web page queried when I logged it. Just waiting for an "Are you sure?" message now...

    I assumed the criteria is that you are not employed by RM. However if you were successful in being selected you would need to keep this secret from your other half.

    Does anyone know if you can get pop ups on the app?

    I've had a message to say that there should be a pop up with a couple of questions about the correctly delivered. Except there isn't. And I vaguely remember it only showing up on the laptop last time.
    What is everyone else finding?

    I think you will find it isn't really a "pop up" in the way most of us understand the phrase. TNS have a different language.

    Just had an invite back on to the main survey...it's only been 3 months since the last stint finished (and that was a double one). I have politely declined as way too soon for me!
