The RPG Geek of the Week is the spin-off from the ever popular Geek of the Week as instituted on BoardGameGeek in 2005. The GotW's week is now a month in duration from Sunday through Saturday (Sunday is the Switchover day).
The Nomination Process
The current RPG GotW alone chooses and introduces the next RPG GotW. There are no official qualifications for this honor. The nominee is simply someone that the current GotW thinks the rest of the RPG Geek community should get to know better. The reasoning and choice is entirely up to the current RPG GotW. However, in an effort to spread the RPG GotW honors around, please consider the following:
The current RPG GotW sends a geekmail to a potential nominee asking if they would accept the honor. This should be done early in the month to give everyone time to prepare for the next month. In addition, if a potential nominee declines, the current RPG GotW can quickly contact another nominee.

The nominee needs to write a brief introduction of him or herself. The contents and length of this introduction is entirely up to the nominee, but should focus to some extent on their gaming career and interests. Some honorees have written only a brief paragraph, others have written several paragraphs that go into great detail. In addition, the nominee should compose three statements - two of which are truthful, and one a lie. Then, at the end of his or her RPG GotW month, he or she reveals which statement was a lie. When finished, this introduction is sent to the current RPG GotW. Before their month begins, the nominee should also look over their profile information and make sure it's up-to-date - people will look at a GotW's profile.
What is Expected of the RPG GotW During His/Her Month?
The main responsibility of the GotW is to answer questions, to the best of their ability, from other users interested in learning more about him or her. Aside from this core responsibility, there are a few other expectations. He or she should:
