Following the grand traditions of Geek of the Week and RPG Geek of the Week, the "Video Game Geek of the Week" is here to help us get to know our fellow videogame geeks. Due to the smaller community on VGG, the VGGotW's week lasts longer than a single week: 3 weeks.
The Nomination Process
The current VGGotW informs the VGGotW admin about his choice. At the end of his "week", he introduces the next VGGotW. There are no official qualifications for this honor, other than that the nominee must be somehow active on VGG. Either in the forums, or as a submitter, anything. The nominee is someone that the current VGGotW thinks the rest of the Video Game community should get to know better. The reasoning and choice, beside that one prerequisite, is entirely up to the current VGGotW. However, in an effort to spread the VGGotW honors around please consider the following:
After the admin's approval, which will 'always' be given, if the nominee is in any way active on VGG, the current VGGotW sends a geekmail to the nominee asking if he would accept the honor. This should be done early in the period to give everyone time to prepare for the next week. In addition, if a potential nominee declines, the current VGGotW can quickly choose another nominee. The admin will, only when asked, help in providing a list of possible nominees.
Currently the admin handling the VGGeek of the Week threads is _Kael_.

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 provide the current VGGotW with his or her answers to the following questions:
When finished, this introduction and the responses to the above questions are sent to the current VGGotW. Before their week begins, the nominee should also look over their profile information and make sure it's up-to-date - people will look at a VGGotW's profile.
What is Expected of the VGGotW During His/Her Week?
The main responsibility of the VGGotW is to answer questions, to the best of their ability, from other board members interested in learning more about him or her. Aside from this core responsibility, there are a few other expectations. He or she should:
