Hmm what is it that defines a newb...oh I know! Its that inscessant use of that damned letter that webster made into a word! Damn you..."u" for you have caused so much havok in sounding the exact same as the word you!
Noobs can't help knowing things. We were all newbies at one time. It's not nice to be so mean to them. They're confused and they think since this is an online forum that they must speak netspeak. They'll learn...some of them.
"Noobs" Are new, that's why people call them "Noobs." It shouldn't be that hard to figure out, that they need a little help. As for me i'm a "noob" I've been on Gaia for about 3 weeks, and I still have no clue whats going on, half the time. xp
1. We have all said that there is a definite difference between a n00b and a newbie. That difference is as follows:
a. A n00b cannot seem to speak English properly.
b. A n00b seems to think that making thousands of posts with nothing more than the word "bump" in the ED is fun.
c. A n00b is a n00b. No matter how long s/he has been a member.
d. A newbie, is still attempting to learn the systemic rules
e. A newbie, while sometimes slipping, will try to post in a coherent manner.
f. A newbie can make on topic posts and will still try to learn from their experience.
2. I was never a n00b. A newbie. . . yes. For the simple fact is that everyone starts sometime. Stupidity (the staple of n00bs the world over) isn't welcomed by the general public.
There is a difference between not understanding and not TRYING to understand. A n00b is someone who does not understand, nor TRIES to do so, and just goes on posting randomly aabout totally unrelated subject or ruining whatever it is that th non-n00bs are doing.
