When Am I No Longer A Noob?

I've been called a noob, nube and have taken my hazing.

I've been a member almost a year now and I was recently insulted by a month old GTer. I don't like randomly calling anyone names but so wanted to label this guy a noob.

When is someone not a noob? Nube?

I defer to the entrenched GTer's for the correct protocol.

You? Never!


j/k - folks seem to readily confuse "newb" as having some sort of correlation to intelligence, experience, etc. Whether you have <10 posts or >10k posts, I find it irrelevant to whether or not a person's opinion is something that I find credible.

I wouldn't worry about it. Besides, you're just a newb...who cares what you think

This place is nothing, go over to ARFCOM where making you feel like a newb is considered a blood sport.

as soon as you quit caring who thinks you're a newb. realize the person slinging insults wraps themselves in a blanket of insecurity. they are showing a strangled cry for help...

that's what dr. phil says, anyway.

Ahh, Grasshopper! You'll no longer be a noob when you can answer the following question;

How long is a battleship, Yes or No?

Good question, I don't like to call names like that, either. I figured I was a noob until I didn't feel like one around here. I don't know how to judge if someone else is still one.
