Should we delete, or make an entry explaining the slang word as a back-formation of 'newbie'? Blockinblox - talk 14:24, 4 March 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Either rewrite or delete and salt it. I could go either way on it (as long as I am not the one who has to rewrite :) ). Either way, I just don't want it showing up on the uncats list so I tagged it with its cats just in case. -- Creol(talk) 14:40, 4 March 2007 (UTC)[reply]
Redirect it to newbie or new person or newcomer. In newbie, the page is redirected to internet slang. Maybe this page can be redirected to internet slang as well. Coffsneeze 19:59, 3 May 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Why is the title "Newbie" while the bold heading is "Noob"? — Preceding unsigned comment added by [[User:67.80.27.38 (talk)|67.80.27.38 (talk)]] ([[User talk:67.80.27.38 (talk)#top|talk]] • [[Special:Contributions/67.80.27.38 (talk)|contribs]])

nOOb isn't a universal term. Like calling John Lennon "pop" doesn't mean his name is "pop" right? So, when we write things, we want it to be the right term. And, in dictionaries, there's no "noob", but there's "newbie". Reverter (talk) 19:53, 11 May 2011 (UTC)[reply]

I thought it stood for "New Beginner"[change source]
