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.
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.
The Moots are always scheduled for the first Saturday of every month, at 8 PM Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). To avoid confusion, the different time zones have been provided.

Note: UTC does not have Daylight Savings Time so it stays the same all year round. If your country uses DDST the time will be an hour (or a half hour) later than it is stated in the timezone slot.
You can usually tell a Daylight Savings Time (summer time) apart from a standard time (winter time) depending on the letter used in the acronym: either "D" or "S." For instance, US Eastern time is either EDT (daylight savings) or EST (standard). Please note that some timezones have the same name both in winter and in summer time.
All summer timezone names are marked with a reference. Check here which timezone your country belongs to.

An organizational position usually given to the most senior staff member present.
- 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.
One of the people who is suggesting something.
- Presenters usually speak in the order they are signed up for below.
- 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.
- 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.
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.
- 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.
- Beginning of the meeting: Once everyone is satisfied with the number of audience members, the first Presenter will speak about their topic.
- The Presenter goes: The user will give their opening statements, present their case, and then rest their case.
- Discussion: Once the Presenter is finished, they will ask those attending to discuss their ideas in a civil manner.
- Voting: Everyone will get a say in the topic and if it's evident via votes that roughly 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 (yes)—support for the proposal—or (no)—opposing the proposal. One can withdraw their vote if one wishes, and remaining neutral is also allowed.
- 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.
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.
- Change moot procedure to allow revisits of old decisions if a certain amount of time has passed, and if support is suitably high —Atvelonis (talk) 16:36, 18 July 2022 (UTC)
- Revisit our H3 policy for interactions/quests to improve space usage —Atvelonis (talk) 16:36, 18 July 2022 (UTC)
- 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.

- 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 through a Consensus Track thread to prevent overly-frequent policy changes.
This reference is added after all the timezone names that are Daylight Saving Time timezones aka summer ones. If your country uses DST please make sure you check the summer one. If you add a summer timezone remember to add this reference.
