55RZ3 The Shark Tank Act
Published in Clark #1 Primary Sources: see [1]

Whereas some ideas are kind of good on paper, but in practice don't work too well and often give undesirable results, and

Whereas Mr Wonderful, from Shark Tank, would describe such ideas as "poo poo on a stick" and would advocate "taking it behind the barn and shooting it", and

Whereas one such idea that was kind of good on paper but doesn't work too well in practice is the Wittenberg is not Talossa Act, a flagship policy of AMP during the 54th Cosa, and

Whereas this Act places an unreasonable burden on both prospective citizens and existing citizens by attempting to force strangers to communicate with each other outside of Wittenberg and requiring people to so within mere days of being introduced to each other; and also the Act cannot actually guarantee that any communication being made is actually anything beyond superficial and only being done to jump through the hoop set out by the Act; and also the possibility exists that the Act could cause Talossa to lose out on gaining excellent citizens who didn't meet that criteria set out in the Act simply because they didnt feel comfortable giving out contact details or adding other Talossans to friends lists on social media within one to fifteen days of meeting them online; and also even if the prior made points don't apply to every case, the Act actually requires existing citizens to care enough about the immigration process to engage with it and a vast majority just do not, and

Whereas the Act may or may not be poo poo on a stick, but at this time it doesn't seem to be working too well, so I think we should be taking it behind the barn and shooting it, so

Therefore be it resolved by the Ziu assembled that 'The Wittenberg is not Talossa Act' is hereby repealed and the changes that Act made to El Lexhatx shall be reversed.

Thus LEX.E.4, which currently reads:

4. An examination period shall begin with the prospective citizen’s first posting to Wittenberg after an introduction by the Interior Minister. At any time at least fifteen days after the beginning of the examination period, any current citizen of Talossa who has corresponded with the prospective citizen at least once using a medium other than Wittenberg (excluding emails from the Interior Ministry) may petition the Secretary of State requesting that a Royal Grant of Citizenship be issued to the prospective citizen. The petition must name the non-Wittenberg medium the petitioner used to correspond with the prospective citizen. If no such petition is laid before the Secretary of State within the first sixty days of the examination period, the examination period shall end, the immigration process for the prospective citizen shall be terminated, and their Wittenberg account shall be disabled. In addition, if a prospective citizen fails to ever make a first posting to Wittenberg within thirty days of their introduction by the Interior Minister then the immigration process for the prospective citizen shall be terminated, and his Wittenberg account shall be disabled. Furthermore, whenever an immigration process is terminated then the Interior Minister shall notify the nation and the prospective citizen of the termination, and shall post a notification to the effect on Wittenberg.

shall be amended to read:

4. An examination period shall begin with the prospective citizen’s first posting to Wittenberg after an introduction by the Interior Minister. At any time at least fifteen days after the beginning of the examination period, any current citizen of Talossa may petition the Secretary of State requesting that a Royal Grant of Citizenship be issued to the prospective citizen. If no such petition is laid before the Secretary of State within the first sixty days of the examination period, the examination period shall end, the immigration process for the prospective citizen shall be terminated, and their Wittenberg account shall be disabled. In addition, if a prospective citizen fails to ever make a first posting to Wittenberg within thirty days of their introduction by the Interior Minister then the immigration process for the prospective citizen shall be terminated, and his Wittenberg account shall be disabled. Furthermore, whenever an immigration process is terminated then the Interior Minister shall notify the nation and the prospective citizen of the termination, and shall post a notification to the effect on Wittenberg.
