    Newbs/Noobs/Noobies

    I've been seeing and observing one person calling another "noob". Typically the guy with the higher number of posts feels it's his duty to let the one newer to the site know his unfamiliarity with "the works". Sometimes I agree and think that they are a noob, but first let's figure out what these people are implying by the term noob.

    Noob - Implies that a person made a foolish and ignorant action or a verbal gesture with little knowledge of a constant systematic process.

    In certain cases this is true. Let's say your playing the game Battlefield 2 and several people are in a car and the driver drives off a cliff killing everyone. That deserves the term noob. Making a forum that someone doesn't appreciate deserves terms such as, idiot, twat, whore, cumrag, and ext. What ever you may find to your liking. A person cannot be a noob at discussing a topic with a group of people. Unless they live in a cave and just got roadrunner for the first time. Some people forget this but these new people to Wii chat have been having conversation there whole life. They are not new at it at all. So try to grow up a bit.

    Maybe a thread for site feedback as its not wii related.

    'Newb' is just slang for new person in my opinion and the other term 'noob' is just a foolish person who is immature.

    We shouldnt call new members noobs, it is inappropriate and is flaming.

    I agree with you. I completely hate using the word "n00b", so I avoid it at all costs. But yeah, there are too many people who address others using that word, which I think is rude and impolite.

    No I think he's talking about me being the person called a noob in the ridley thread in the brawl forum.

    It might be me, he posted in that thread.

    And are you trying to be funny by calling me a noob or are you serious?

    wreked is referring to me and i never called him a noob.....and you were being pretty ignorant, i just made two completly valid points and you were hardcore close-minded about it and used the completly retarded interweb slang word "failed." which i hate, plus i was 90% asleep, i am sorry, usually i don't tend to act like that, but please don't make a thread open for discussion and than act so close-minded about it


    the mario that's roomed with mush
