RZ17 - The Wittenberg Transition Act

The Wittenberg Transition Act

Whereas a series of forums owned by private individuals, going by the generic name of "Wittenberg", have been one of the central forums of Talossanity since 1997, and whereas "Witt" is often the public face of our country, and

Whereas Witt is an internet forum, and while Talossans are the most extraordinary people on the Earth, sometimes things can get out of hand, and we do need a small group of people empowered to bring it back in hand, and

Whereas it's probably no longer a good idea to split up the increasingly-quiet Witt into other boards, and

Whereas basically we just want pretty obvious and common-sense moderation, but done under the rule of law, and whereas el Lexhatx makes common reference to Wittenberg, but nowhere defines what it actually is,

THEREFORE the Ziu hereby deletes Title J of el Lexhatx in its entirety, replacing it with the following:

TITLE J: Wittenberg

1. The Chancery shall be responsible for providing an official internet message board or forum, hosted on Talossa.com or another official website of the kingdom as described in Lexh. D.2.10 for the express use of the Civil Service, the Government, or provincial business. The Secretary of State or their designated representative within the Chancery shall make all reasonable effort to maintain and make available this board for all offices of the Civil Service, Government, or provinces that so request. The Secretary of State shall have ultimate discretion in the question of infrastructure, although they are highly advised to take the wishes of officials into account in their decision-making. Other boards shall be provided for socialization at the discretion of the Secretary of State or their designated representative.

2. Each officeholder or head of agency shall be responsible for monitoring any boards provided for their use, and reporting any problems to the Chancery as needed. The Secretary of State or their designated representative(s) shall act to maintain a minimum level of acceptable behavior on these boards when such action is requested whensoever their own judgment directs that it is necessary. This behavior is not defined in specifics, but shall include generally treating others in a manner that respects Talossa as a community.

3. This board shall include the necessary infrastructure to allow the Ziu to fulfill its functions, including proposing, debating, and considering bills and the posing of Terpelaziuns. This board will also provide a place for citizens to register their votes in elections. This board shall be known as "Wittenberg," and it will be considered the property of the nation as a whole.

FURTHERMORE, until such a time as the Chancery officially certifies the new official board as ready for occupancy, "Wittenberg" shall be taken to mean the forum at talossa.proboards.comwhich currently goes by that name.

FURTHERMORE, Lex.D.2.10.3 shall be amended to read as below:

The Ministry of Stuff shall be responsible for managing and making available the content of the publicly-readable Internet presence of the Kingdom, excluding those websites under the jurisdiction of other entities of the Kingdom as described elsewhere in el Lexhatx.

FURTHERMORE, 47RZ22 and 48RZ24 are hereby repealed.
