Does anyone else get annoyed by people constantly calling others noobs (not on this website, just everywhere) i mean we all were new at whatever you were doing at some point in your life, but people just seem to like feeling more powerful than the others. do you guys get annoyed by this too, it seems like im the only one

I hate that word and I hate it when people call other people that. If someone knows less than you, don't make fun of them, help them out.

I don't especially like any of this slang, but then I'm wildly out of touch.

I hate noob, pwn, 'hardcore', the misuse of 'FTW' (doesn't stand for 'For The Win' and I hate that some idiots decided to change that), etc...

No need, we were all noobs once.
Except for me of course, I was born h-core!

I saw a license plate a few years ago: STFUN00BThat was probably the only time I actually laughed at that kind of lingo.

I don't like the word 'noob', but I have been known to type 'pwn' and 'ftw'. Dunno why, I just absorbed it from teh interwebz... I'm doin' it again...

To those who dislike the term hardcore. I refer to myself as h-core often. I picked up that phrase whilst playing Animal Crossing.

Doesn't really bother me. But then again, I 'm not a noob.

It's ok if used sparingly and in a joking manner, I think. I do hate playing like a n00b in games that I want to be good at though.

A little off from the n00b subject but back to the interweb slang...walk up to a 1%'er and ask them if ftw means for the win and see if you return home with your teeth...I'm just saying, it'll be an interesting experiment.

That kind of talk is one of the reasons NintendoLife is just about the only gaming site / forum I can tolerate.

@J Bitties: What's a 1%'er??? And are you talking about '**** the world' or something else? I'm confused!
15. Posted: Thu 27th Aug 2009 18:32 BST
its a difference between n00bs and newbs. Newbs are those that are new to a thing and might not be to good and maybe needs some help N00bs are people that acts like a-holes. They constantly whines about how bad the game is and that they died because of lag and stuff like that.

I do not like the word n00b at all. It should be banned from being used on Nintendo Life.

A 1%'er is a reference to motorcycle clubs. Back in the 70's when the feds started to identify them, they said 99% of Motorcycle Clubs (MC) are law abiding citizens while 1% choose not too...or something along those lines. So now, most of them where a 1% patch to identify themselves...well, that and numerous other tags (Identifying region and MC they belong to, etc.), one, for example, is the "FTW" because it's ALWAYS stood for F The World until the interweb gave it its tragically lame meaning of 'For The Win".

Off topic re. 1%'ers, I watched back-to-back-to-back History Channel episodes on Motorcycle Clubs a couple of weeks ago and learned a lot about these dudes. Funny, I never gave a wet slap about MCs and still don't, but like most series on that channel, it was done so well it was tough to turn off. History Channel FTW.

@J Bitties: It's not tragic, far from it. Being in a *** motorcycle club is though. I think I know which definition will be most remembered in 100yrs. But thanks for educating me.
For the world, **** the win!

LOL...well played We have three MC's in my local area, two national and one local, and as a kid, i knew of them but was always curious as to what everything meant. It's also a great way to identify which bars not to go into.
