TES:MOOT

A Moot is a monthly meeting between users meant to efficiently discuss and vote on topics of importance. All TESWikians are invited to attend. Don't hesitate to voice your opinion when asked; every voice counts! The moot is generally an informal, "open floor"-type event, where anyone can talk about things on their mind, but it's a very good idea to write down what you'll be talking about in advance here.

Participation[]

The Moot is open to participation from all users!

Our Chat Rules do apply. Members must be "Verified" on Discord to participate, and interfering with Moot may result in a kick. While not a requirement, if you want to bring up a topic, it is highly encouraged that you sign your name below.

If you're not presenting, you shouldn't sign your name and may join any time. While this is meant to be a fun and informative event, participants are expected to act respectful and be patient. As such, interrupting those presenting a topic isn't allowed—your time to speak will come.

Timezones[]

The Moots are always scheduled for the first Saturday of every month, at 8 PM Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). To avoid confusion, check here which timezone your country belongs to.

Positions[]

Leader[]

An organizational position usually given to the most senior staff member present.

  1. The Moot Leader is responsible for officially starting and ending the Moot, providing summaries for each topic prior to a vote, counting the votes, and moving the group forward between topics.

Presenter[]

One of the people who is suggesting something.

  1. Presenters usually speak in the order they are signed up for below.
  2. An ideal presentation includes a relatively brief explanation of their proposal along with any relevant additional information. When they're finished, they will let everyone know and discussion and voting will begin.
  3. The Presenter should try to be as clear and grammatically correct as possible. Respect for others is extremely important while trying to get their point across. They may argue for or against a point, or maintain neutrality and let others decide. The Presenter may discuss the topic with everyone else and cast a vote when voting occurs.

Spectator[]

A regular user watching and/or voting in the Moot.

  • Anyone can attend the Moot without signing their name. All votes count, as do all opinions. No opinion counts any more or less than any other opinion. Anyone who purposely creates tension may be kicked.

Moot procedure[]

  1. Opening Time: Presenters should try to be online in the Discord server at this time no matter their order. Around five minutes should be given to wait for latecomers before the actual meeting begins.
  2. Beginning of the meeting: Once everyone is satisfied with the number of audience members, the first Presenter will speak about their topic.
  3. The Presenter goes: The user will give their opening statements, present their case, and then rest their case.
  4. Discussion: Once the Presenter is finished, they will ask those attending to discuss their ideas in a civil manner.
  5. Voting: Everyone will get a say in the topic and if it is evident via votes that two-thirds are in agreement, the results will be tallied by the Moot Leader and the moot will continue. If the topic is highly controversial, a separate consensus can be created in the forum. To vote, respond with either :support: – in favor of the proposal – :oppose: against the proposal – or :enutral: – neither in favor or against the motion. One can withdraw their vote if one wishes, and choosing not to vote is also allowed.
  6. End of the Discussion: After a decision is reached, the next Presenter(s) will repeat the same process until they are all finished. Once all discussions have been closed, the meeting will come to an end.

Quorum[]

In order for a moot to be able to conduct its business, there must be no fewer than four people present at any given time, and at least one person must be a staff member. If there are fewer than four people or there are no staff members present, the moot cannot begin. If at any time during a moot there is no longer a quorum present, the moot cannot proceed until a quorum is re-established. The moot may, at any time during a meeting, vote to change the quorum number for all future meetings. The Moot Leader is responsible for ensuring that there is a quorum present at all times during a meeting of the moot.

Voting[]

For a vote to pass, two-thirds of all votes made must be in support of the proposal. If fewer than two-thirds support the proposal, the vote is considered to be defeated. When determining the proportion of votes, half of the neutral votes are taken as being in support of the proposal and the other half are taken as being opposed. For example, a vote of 6-8-1 is calculated as being equivalent to 10-0-5. The Moot Leader is responsible for tallying and reporting the votes.

Sign-up[]

Please sign up to present at the moot here: edit the "Current Moot Topics" section and sign your signature. For example:

  • Redo style and formatting policy for quest walkthroughs —WikiEditor4Life (talk) 00:02, 24 June 2022 (UTC)

To avoid stretching out the moots for too long, users may present 2–3 topics per moot. If a meeting is already pretty full, it is advisable to try your luck with the next one. When signing your name, please check to see if someone is already covering the topic you want to introduce to the Moot.

Current Moot Topics[]

To prevent confusion, topics will be presented based on the order they are added to this page.

  • Replace "Interactions" header with "Quests" on character articles. Ashley (talk) 15:33, 4 June 2024 (UTC)
  • Review and simplify {{ESOGold}} and {{ESOExp}} for Online quests. Grey Fox (talk) 06:34, 7 June 2024 (UTC)
  • Discuss the {{ALLPLAT}} template and its current usage when not using a game parameter; replace its usage with the three platforms it represents, then consider what else the template could do. Ottoman Hold Message Me My Action 14:24:09 June 07, 2024
  • Establish formatting and page status for Online achievements. Grey Fox (talk) 07:00, 8 June 2024 (UTC)

Log[]

For a searchable archive of all moot summaries, see The Elder Scrolls Wiki:Moot/Archive.

The Moots will be logged for the sake of convenience. In case the outcome of a previous Moot is disputed, the log will be here to resolve the issue.

Old chat logs containing moots can be accessed from the list on KINMUNE's profile. Newer Discord logs can be accessed on the Discord server itself. Some log summaries can also be found in weekly updates.

Notes[]

  • All items agreed on will be added to the Moot tasklist; this will allow us to keep track of what we have left to do so we do not forget to do anything.
  • Most Summaries can also be found in our Weekly Updates.
  • If a decision is made in the moot, and a user later wishes to reverse or significantly revise that decision, they may only do so after one year has passed to prevent overly-frequent policy changes. They may do this in a later moot or through a Consensus Track thread.
