The distinction between a newbie and a noob must be highly stressed in discussions such as these. A beautiful example of this distinction can be seen in Dikiyoba's first epic play.
Noobs can best be identified as BYE THERE BAD USE OF GRAMMER PUNCTUTATION< SPELLING ;) cAPiTALIZATION and exCESSIVE Emotticons and 133T speak, LOL ROFLMAO!! :D :D :mad: :mad: :eek: :eek: :confused:
lord llama is a pristine example of noobishness.
I plan to write a scholarly essay on the noob/newbie dichotomy at some point, and would be glad to share it with all of you.

I don't think many people would read it. Now get busy and get me a beer.

I don't know how far I've really moved up the ladder, if at all.

Not true, it is a universally established fact that noobs deny their noobishness. By calling himself a noob, Ben is actually declaring that he is not a noob.

This feels like some "oldbies" idea of a joke. Either that he needs to do some major revision in his spelling.
On a different note (higher up the scale) I always felt like I was a oldbie :) until, I wrote my first post.

I'd call MM* a lurking newbie or a new lurker myself. But labels really aren't important, as long as people don't label you an uncontrollable n00b.

And Ben isn't really the ur-noob, or he'd be speaking entirely in capital letters.

MM is a lurker, but you can't really call someone with over a thousand posts and years of presence a newbie.

—Alorael, who also can't think of any ex-mod as a newbie. Except maybe a few very brief disappearing ET mods.

Oh. Secondary account. Dikiyoba still isn't good at picking those out. Even when the name should be a huge tipoff.

Perhaps a list could be constructed to clear the confusion. However, that could also lead to more tension in the community...

Ya, good point. :/

I was overdue for a change anyway. Not like it does anything for my status.

A list would only aggravate the debate between those that were insulted at either being on or left off the list. Also it would depend uon whether this was a list of oldbies or newbies.

I was thinking more like a stamp in the profile. Sort of like the under 21 thing on licenses.

"Under 21 until MM/DD/YYYY"
"Newbie until MM/DD/YYYY"

You know, a talk like a noob topic might be fun. I doubt I have the clout to start one without swift and judicious lockage.

Maybe if you disguised it as your "essay" really well...

Dikiyoba wanted to post a graemlin at the end of the above line to indicate a non-serious suggestion. Sadly, due to graemlin hyperinflation in this topic, Dikiyoba's single graemlin is completely worthless for that purpose.

A list of secondary and tertiary accounts, on the other hand, would be quite useful.

I don't know about that (the essay part, that is). However, something I would like to have is some guide to the 1337 speak, as I can't make any sense of it. I've tried time on time again, and I just don't get it. Why bother using digits that resamble letters, if you can use the letters!? It seems so beautifully stupid to me...

About the beer part: I just discovered 6 beer may be just a bit too much for my own good.

Honestly, I never thought I would reference anyone to Wikipedia. It is your friend.

The mechanism began simply: taking standard text and corrupting it with a dynamic cipher, with only those privy to the cipher understanding what was being conveyed in the ciphertext. Through this, newcomers to a given community were excluded from communication with those who had defined (and continued to evolve) the cipher.[/b]
