Most of the people that hates newbs is bacause they act like noobs or they think they will be one or they have fun teasing them (note I don't do anyone of the options)

Maybe people flame them because half of the newbies can't take the time to use proper grammar and make an intelligent post to support their argument :rolleyes:.

Usually people don't hate all newbs, people just hate newbs that don't listen to the rules or know what proper grammer is. They're right in plain view yet many don't even read them. There's NO excuse for that.

Newbie racism?

Being a newbie isnt a race 8D

Being racist is being against a certain race. Not a group of people.
This should be called "Newbie Prejudicing".
-----------
Anyway, people aren't flaming newbies. A rule was made months ago against doing this. The most common case is that a newb does something against the rules, and then experienced members tell them that they're doing something wrong.

It's not "Newbie Racism" :P As Shining Mew said...It's not a race 8D. :P

Rather, it's more of "Newbie Frustration." More and more mods have had their share with random newbs and n00bs for a long time. Each time they seen to get one to either mature or go away, anohter one comes, and they bring their friends and the nightmare starts over again. :P

It's really common on most forums, and it takes a lot to show that you're not a "newb" or "n00b." :P

Noone has a problem with "newbs" making mistakes, just "n00bs." These two internet slang terms have entirely different meanings.
A "newb" or "newbie" is someone who is new to a forum, they are expected to make mistakes and are most of the time exempt from the stereotypes levied at "n00bs."
"N00bs" however are an entirely different set of people, they make grammatical errors flout the rules and refuse to accept help from more experienced members and those who know the workings of forums.
"N00bs" are subjected to what you percieve as "newbie rasicm" as they are often very annoying people.

An outbreak of

"Newbism"


What do we do??????

But it's pretty pathetic to pick on new people. Also it's really low. We were all newbies once...

Jynxo says in his sig that every time a n00b posts, a baby Phanpy cries! As a mod, shouldn't he be encouraging new people to come to the forum, and not making it seem like a crime for them to post here?

No offense Jynxo, but it's the truth! Quite a few newbs have already posted saying that they don't like it!

n00b =/= newb.

How many times must this be said?

People don't hate newbies at all, in fact, there is an adoption thread where new members can learn the ropes. n00bs on the other hand, are hated. This is because they post things like this. Learn Internets.

On another note, to be a newbie is to not to belong to a race, ergo, it isn't racism, prejudice is the word darling. Learn English.

Well, seeing that, I have to agree. way 2 g0 Josh! ell oh ell!

WTF? o_O

ANYWAYS, people don't "tease" newbies (lol. e-teasing). The fact that anyone would do anything negative to a person just because they're new is just....weird. I'm sure the majority of people here couldn't give a crap about new people. It's the idiots that refuse to attempt to type somewhat well while using 80 pokemon smilies per post (the first and last of which ALWAYS being the damned Dark Lugia smilie) that we have a problem with. ;/

Lol. "Racism". I almost laughed myself into a coma after reading that. Especially when the thread title is spelled "Neewbie Racism". o_o

Actually, no I wasn't.

If you actually took the time to READ through this thread--which you clearly didn't--you'd have seen that newbs =/= n00bs.

Since you seem to be...erm...not the brightest bulb, I'll break that down. Newbies and n00bs are NOT the same thing.

It doesn't help that whenever a newbie is warned for breaking a rule, they complain and say they are being picked on for being new.

"I'm new, I didn't realise"

No excuse. If you overdose on painkillers you don't say "I've never taken pills before, I didn't realise." you read the intrustions. Same goes here. If people think they are being picked on for being new, it's probably their own fault.

Well, people seem like they're being OK. Although there are some things that aren't in the rules, but are still frowned upon. Sometimes they don't know not to do those things.

And yeah, one of the most important Internet things is to learn is that newbie=/=n00b. I heard somewhere that one of the best ways to tell a newbie from a n00b is that if they do something wrong, and they apologise and say they'll try to do better, they're probably a newbie. However, if they lash out and call people names, and don't take the advice, they're probably a n00b.

Noob is meant as an offensive term towards someone who is not nessicarily new, and quite often is directed at someone that is |somewhat| experienced but at the same time stupid/disruptive and/or totally incapable of learning.
A noob is almost always someone who thinks they're cool but obviously aren't. Also used in 1337speak.
see also: n00b, nub, ch00b, n00bo, n00blet.

Newb is not meant to be offensive. newb merely states that the person in question is new to the game/board/whatever.
Noob -
Ralph: OMG I IS THE BEST!11!!one1!!! YUO ALL SUK!11! LOL!
Fred: noob.
Daniel: go home n00b...

Newb -
Sam: Guys, anyone know where |x| is?
Daniel: Sure, Its somewhere over near |y|.

Simple as that. nOObs are just arragont while newbies just need some guidance. No one here is really prejudice against newbies. They just get angered at them if they act like an a*s.

this is why I advise that people who just registered on the boards to lurk for a week or so before posting anything. Then they can understand how the forum works without having to be ridiculed by people.

Most of the newbies that I know and/or have seen, that lurked the forum for a week or two, have turned out to be great additions to the community. those who jump right it, and think that they are 1337 because they have a 25% full pokedex and/or a Mewtwo caught in an ultraball turn out to be n00bs.

Part of what makes SPPf nice is the fact that a postcount isn't shown, because in other forums, people are judged to be newbs based solely on this. Here, you're judged by what you post.

Here a person is a n00b for acting like one. A persons status is judged by their posting habits, and that's how it should be.

Here, you don't have to worry about being a n00b if you just follow the rules, which isn't a tall order.

Hypocrite (sp?) and judgemental seem to happen alot really, I am not that judgemental (Okay sometimes and sometimes a Hypocrite, aleast I can admit it), like if a newbie makes one small mistake he/she is automactially assumed as a Noob.

I am a newb (sort of) I joined in the summer holidays and I am only a Cascade trainer (I think) and I really enjoy these forums.My definition of a n00b is someone who teaches their Smeargle this moveset.
Smeargle
Black belt
Hyper beam
Hydro cannan(spelling)
Frenzy plant
Blast burn
This is a n00b's dream moveset. OR
Charizard
Mystic Water
Blast burn
Overheat
Fire blast
Ember
These are very annoying people but I would never tease them about it.
I was once battlind someone on netbattle an I was using Flareon against a Skarmory. The Skarmory was doing the Spikes/Roar combo so I thought that if I switched to meganium then the Skarmory would Roar me back to my Flareon because If there was anyone I did not want to have to battle a Skarmory with it would be my Meganium or I could have made my Meganium use ingrain. Leech seed and then my Meganium could keep on healing itself. Anyways, I was getting watched by about 8 spectators on Netbattle doing this and then i was ridiculed on netbattle for the next fortnight as the guy who switches a Meganium into a Skarmory. I really hated it and I would never want to do it to anyone else.

actually, not all n00bs are new people. It certainly looks like it evolved from a term for newbies, majorities of which were likely rather annoying back in the day when 133t hacker slang was first being used. But nowadays, the term "n00b" refers to just about anyone who's an annoying poster, be it a rookie or veteran.
