A 'n00b' is a player that
is new to a game, website forum or software application.
It is a word
most commonly used
now by testicularly challenged 13 year old gamers, it was originaly derived from 'newbies' or 'newbs'. Later becoming
'n00b' in the fields of counterstrike 1.6 and the like.
Although now considered a word
to be used
newbies themselves, originaly it was neither insulting or derogatry. Instead it was used
to inform others that
You, or another
person, were relatively inexperienced in a certain area.
