The moot is a monthly meeting in the #moot channel on the Discord server where we keep each other updated, and is open to everyone!

A Moot is a monthly meeting between users meant to efficiently discuss and vote on topics of importance. All SiIva Wiki editors 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 name "moot" is taken from The Elder Scrolls Wiki's moot.

Participation

The Moot is open to participation from all users!

Our User conduct rules do apply, so 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 at 4 PM Pacific Time on the first Saturday of each month; days will be announced in advance.

Different 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 ten 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's evident via votes that roughly two-thirds are in agreement, the results will be tallied 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.
  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.

Sign-up

Attendance

Here is a list of different positions to sign up for. If you want to present a topic, simply edit this next section and sign your signature. We take constant record here, so we will know if a name is where it shouldn't be or isn't there at all.

Presenter

Those wanting to introduce a topic to the Moot will put do like so: Signature – Topic A new bullet will separate different Presenters from one another. For example:

  • Bob – Moot stuff
  • Jerry – Moot Stuff

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.

  • pokemonfreak777 - Discuss thresholds/criteria for memes/frequently ripped tracks/anything else that might need it (may need multiple meetings)
  • Mick - Memenav vs MusicMemes
  • pokemonfreak777 - miscellaneous topics about what to do about pages in certain special page categories (uncategorized/unused/unorganized/wanted categories)

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.
