A solution to the salary thread problem

How about a new subforum, where such threads can be moved to. As a bit of preliminary work, search for all such threads, and move them to the Salary Question forum, so any new questions will have a bit of company.

This would prevent the vicious flaming of newbies, and the consternation of veterans.

If there are other frequently recurring topics, then widen the scope of the new forum to "FAQ", and use it to put any questions about brown sugar, salary etc. that aren't really new. This is what we've done in one of the forums I moderate. You could create a new button for "one-click to FAQ forum", to ease the workload.

Thats not a bad idea actually. All salary topics in one forum with preferably an ignore button :P

Re: A solution to the salary thread problem

I do not know how central europe sees the cost/salary problem.

For example i know (for experience) in England/US a meal is just a sandwich.

If you stay 1 week in Portugal you are hitted with how ignorant are the ones ignoring how life is different in each country.

I think it is normal and it is a duty for a country that relies on foreigners or specialized workforce to sustain its GDP.

I think that should be a section explaining the rent, the typical meal and so on for nobody having problems with salaries.

One example: soup, 3 course meals, desert and drink at lunch in Portugal is 5 euros/7 swiss francs.

For many, this is a fancy meal. However in Brasil or Portugal this is the normal for 90%.

When i read that you can lunch for 5 francs you refering for a sandwich that costs 1 euro.

I think not a section about salaries but a glossary should be needed.

My 2 cents.

Good idea. Just call it 'Salary questions'
I can set my homepage to it.

Re: A solution to the salary thread problem

Not a bad idea but on the second thought where would charm of consternation and bashing have gone to? Sometimes it's nice to see those $000 figures popping out of nowhere which reminds us what the bargaining figures should we bear in mind on the next interview
