Wiki Anti-Vandalism Act

1. Clause 8 is added to Section 1 of the Consolidated Criminal Justice Act: "Vandalism of the AtlasWiki, defined as repeatedly altering an article to include inaccurate or irrelevant information of any sort, after it has been corrected at least once."

Just asking, did we had any examples of such vandalism recently?

Yes, it's been going on for months. The official color of the Populares, as adopted at our convention, is emerald. Antonio V has been relentlessly vandalizing our party's page and changing the color to this ugly powder blue color that is not emerald. I'm tired of having to go on there every single day to fix it and change it back.

This childish vandalism has got to stop. I'm not going to the JCP wiki page and changing your party's color to whatever I want it to be; I would expect the same respect in return.

The CCJA says that "Maliciously editing the AtlasWiki to remove legitimate content or create off-topic pages" is illegal, but for some reason nothing has been done about this situation by any AG, so perhaps the law has to be made clearer.

The Attorney General is not spending his entire life looking at every wiki page in search for violations. Actually, the Attorney General is staying away from pages of other parties than his in order to avoid any partisian fight over editions.

The Attorney General would surely appreciate being personally informed about a crime taking place. Otherwise, the Attorney General is not going to, beside having RL acitvities, to spend his entire, plus some extra, time, monotoring wikipedia.

Antonio, I don't know what is officially adopted Populares color, but if what Libertas is telling is truth and I'm still in office when notified that happened again, I'll use CCJA.

I would maybe consider what other criminal offenses we have in Atlasia and think about whether the sentences outlined here are really in line with the others. I mean, being convicted of voter fraud under the CCJA can result in 3-month voting bans, as there is no minimum.

If anyone is willing to make this a greater reform here, I would suggest adding these two things to the CCJA and then mandating mandatory minimum sentences for ALL offenses in the CCJA. I don't think that would be unreasonable.

Thank you for those information.

Franzl, the CCJA needs a reform from a long time.

Since there's been a lot of talks about reforming the Vice Presidency, I shall officially present my idea, I voiced earlier:

Active Vice Presidency Amendment

1. Vice President's function as President of the Senate shall be abolished.
2. The position of President pro tempore of the Senate shall be transferred to President of the Senate.
3. President shall be required to appoint the Vice President as one of the cabinet officials (namely Secretary of External Affairs, Secretary of Internal Affairs, Secretary of Federal Elections, Attorney General, Registrar General or Moderator General), in addition to his elected position.
4. President shall be allowed to remove the Vice President from a cabinet post, as long as he shall offer him another.

Privacy Protection Act

FL 36-11 is hereby repealed.

You mean repealing law decriminalizing posting PMs or chat logs?

I tried it once, because I believed it's illogical to allow something that is illegal under forum rules. But opposition was too strong for me to pass this.

The Recall of Senators Amendment.
Article I, Section 4 of the Constitution is hereby amending to include:

8: If 30% of a Senator's constituency signs a petition to recall their Senator(s) then the Secretary of Federal Elections shall open a voting booth for the recall election exactly two weeks after the petition obtains the needed amount of signatures. The recall elections shall follow the same procedures as the the general elections for each class of Senators. If the Secretary of Federal elections declares a recall election is to be held, any eligible citizen may declare their intention to be on the ballot up to 48 hours before the booth is open. Should the Senator(s) be recalled, the certified winner(s) of the election may swear in to take their seat in the senate as immediately.   

My two cents:

While I'm not opposing the very idea of allowing recalls (actually, it can be a fun Tongue), I'd take it cautiously, like limiting this one to regional Senators only, to see whether recall stuff works, and then eventually expand.
