NEW WAGES POLICY EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2014 As of July 1, Wages will actually be deducted for duplicate posts and scrutiny avoiding measures like #Rubicked. Each week, Chief Wages Officer George Elias will tally up which members have incurred penalties and the total will be calculated. All wages will then need to be paid by no later than Saturday December 7, 2014 ahead of the Football Shit Talk Annual Xmas Banters Bonanza. All funds raised will go towards alcohol or midgets for our entertainment. The penalties are as follows: Wages - $1 Salary - $2 Super - $3 Redundancyposted Rubicked- $5 Eliased- $5 Where a post is duplicated The third time something has been posted Fourth time something has been posted $4 Fifth time and beyond something has been Deleting a wages to avoid penalties Waging a Rubicked As new members may be confused by the system, a one-week grace period will be granted when they join FST. If anyone re-joins FST after a period of absence, they will immediately be subject to the policy. Regards, The Regime Wages for Dummies I just posted something in Football Shit Talk and someone commented “wages.” What does this mean? You received a wages comment because you have posted a duplicate or very similar post as to one that was previously posted. But why is it called “wages?” The concept traces its origins back to the Maltese Football Forum which was the inspiration for our dear leaders to form Football Shit Talk. It is said that wages is a reference to deducting players wages on Football Manager for poor performance or behaviour. Does it mean that I actually have to give up my wages? At this stage, no. However due to serial abusers of the wages policy, new penalties are being considered. OK, now they are comment salary on my posts. What does that mean? If they’re commenting salary, it’s because you’ve repeated a post that has already been posted twice before. It means that you are either a new, aloof or distant member of FST – or just a lazy prick. What if I feel like I’ve been incorrectly waged? Clarification can be sought by tagging one of the leaders, Alex Cauchi or Benjamin Godfrey Cauchi. Clarification may also be sought from Chief Wages Officer George Elias or Chief Enforcer Josip Perica. What the fuck is Rubicked? That’s when someone is caught deleting a waged post to avoid scrutiny and penalties. A truly horrendous offence. What if it’s a hot topic that has already been mentioned before? Can I make a new post or should I comment on the original post? If your post is bringing significantly new information to the group then it is OK. What isn’t OK is when you’re regurgitating information that has already been previously posted.
