    did anyone manage the upload 15 resources for £30 last month? Having uploaded mine nothing seems to have happened, wondering if there was some small print I've missed?

    They take a while to pay it in afterwards. Think the summer one took 2-3 weeks to be credited.

    A misunderstanding the email says, should have been 15 premium resources (even though the initial email doesn't say that).

    I assumed that and had posted 15 premium resources.

    Hi All - yes I just queried the lack of payment and was told I had not upload 15 resources - On the 17th November I had contacted TES to ask if it was during November (no Reply). Just had a reply to say that I had only uploaded 14 resources from the 7th (even though original email did not say from the 7th) to 30th so did not qualify for the bonus £30. VERY VERY UNIMPRESSED.

    I also just assumed it was premium resources because of the other promotions run. They are doing another one now aren't they?

    Yes £2 a premium resource from the 7th December through to 31st January - unlimited on the amount you can upload.

    Is it not 31st Dec?

    This is the message I got from them - ..."Our current December and January incentive bonus is set at £2.00 per premium resource on this occasion, so there is no limit. You can upload as few or as many as you like and will receive £2 for each one. As there is no limit to the amount you can upload, this is why on this occasion the incentive payment is set to £2 per premium resource".

    You need to click on the normal link to register that you are in and tell them how many (ish) you are going to upload - on that page it states 7th December to 31st January (they have made it clear this time due to the confusion last time). Happy Days we are aiming at uploading 500+

    I still think these are a bad idea of TES' part. The problem is not quantity. The problem is quality. Doing this only encourages people to upload anything they have laying about, regardless of quality.
    I'm not implying that's what people on here do, but I've heard lots of people complain about low quality on TES, but very little complain about poor variety.

    We tend to agree with you Richard its about pride and standards. If someone is not happy about a resource they should complain to TES - who should give them their money back and warn the Author.

    As for us our Teachers and Students LOVE our resources:
    ".Perfect and brilliant...I'm so very pleased to say that they've really enjoyed the topic and more importantly the booklet has for them, according to their feedback made it so much easier to learn..my students refer to your booklet as their Schizophrenia bible..."

    Again we also agree variety is key - today I was creating Christmas quizzes, word-searches, crosswords match makers and unscramble the words for that final weeks motivation before the January Mock Exams. Ho Ho Merry Christmas
