I deffine noob as a new beginner to anything.  This can be a game, school subject, or anything else.


I thought that would be a newbie, not a noob.  However, you can believe whatever you want.


Yeah, my vocab isn't too great, so newbie and noob is the same thing to me.


Well that actually does make sense.  I mean, a newbie is a beginner which means he'll probably act like a noob.  I never thought of it that way before.  Thanks man!


I really didn't do anything, but cool.


Yeah you did.  You made me think of the difference between a noob and newbie in a totally different way.

I'm just kidding, a noob is a person new to something.

A noob can be anyone, no matter how long they have been playing the game, studying the subject, or how long they have been a member at a certian place. To act like a noob, in my opinion, is to show total disregard for order. And make yourself appear less than what you really are.

Newbie
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from Noob)
Jump to: navigation, search
 
A newbie is a newcomer to a particular field, the term being commonly used on the Internet, where it might refer to new, inexperienced, or ignorant users of a game, a newsgroup, an operating system or the Internet itself. In many cases more experienced/knowledgeable people use it in purposes of negative reinforcement, urging "newbies" to learn more about the field or area in question. A newbie is also labeled as such if they are polite when asking questions about the game where as noobs are impolite and believe that the more advanced players are themselves, noobs.

This is demonstrated in the webcomic Ctrl+Alt+Del, where visual examples show the clearly defined difference between newbies and noobs.

Variant spellings, such as newb, nub, nublet, noob, nooblet, foob, froob, nubzors, nubcake, nub-nub, raw nub, noobtard, noobstain, nubumb, dumbnub, and, in Leetspeak, n00b', t3h n00bzorz, n00b3h, and ch00b are numerous and common in Internet use. The term newb itself is usually used to refer to a person who is new to the field in question, whereas noob is used as an insult. For example, in the internet show Pure Pwnage, the main character regularly says, "I pwn noobs," in this case, meaning he beats people of lower skill than himself.

Looks like the original question was answered, and there really isn't anywhere else for the conversation to continue.

On a side note, the response "You" really isn't necessary. The poster was asking a legitimate questions, let's please show each other a bit more respect
