Here are the official rules of the NotW tradition.

1) Every person can only hold the title once.  If you are the incumbent NotW, make sure you have not chosen anyone else with a Na'vi of the Week badge.

2) The reign of the NotW lasts from Monday 0:00 to Sunday 23:59.  Make the best of it!  Do NOT, under any circumstances, make a NotW post outside your reign.  This includes starting the topic too early and unlocking your thread to post.

3) Duties of the incumbent NotW.

  • Create a new thread within the NotW subforum bearing the title NotW#<number>: <username>, and post your answers using the NotW Template.

  • Choose and notify the succeeding NotW. This should be done ASAP so that if the person selected is not available/willing to participate, there is still time to pick another. The chain must not be broken!

  • Keep your successor's identity secret. Except for you two, none must know it until the time comes for the new NotW to reveal themselves.

  • Come up with an interesting Bonus Question, and remember to ask it from the upcoming NotW.

  • Tell the correct answers to your three True or False statements...

  • ...and lock your thread at the end of your reign.  If you forget to lock it and I or another mod finds out within ½ a week, it will be locked for you.

  • Only if the three True or False statements have not yet been told by the NotW shall the thread remain open.

4) Responsibilities of the NotW-to-be.

  • If you receive a PM, asking you to be the next NotW, reply to it ASAP, so the sender knows you're interested (or not.)

  • Don't assume to be the next NotW until you are explicitly told so by the incumbent NotW!

  • Keep your appointment secret until the time comes to make your first post.

5) There are 20 questions on the list. Some of the current ones may be replaced in the future (you can discuss that here). You have to provide an answer to ALL of the questions on the list. Be sure to check the actual Template (and the Bonus Question) before accepting the title of NotW to avoid surprises.

6) Anyone can post in a NotW thread to interact with the incumbent NotW. Anything NOT related to the NotW is considered off-topic and might be removed.  Also, if a new topic is started and it is not a NotW topic, it is likely to either be removed or moved to the appropriate section (even if that means spam).

7) The tradition works like this: once the old NotW thread is locked and unstickied, no one is to go back and unlock it.  When the new NotW thread is posted with the header of NotW#<number>: <username>, it will be sticked for the week.  The NotW will also be appointed with a Na'vi of the Week badge by an admin/global mod.
