look up any word, like wcw:
 
1.
A term used to describe a inexperienced gamer/person/etc. Unlike a noob, a newb is someone who actually wants to get better.
Leet Player: Why is he just looking at the wall?
Other Player: I think hes a newb.

2.
Someone who is new to the activity that they are currently partaking in. Very often this term is used pertaining to computer games. Contrary to popular belief, a newb and a n00b are not the same thing, as a newb can and will get better where as a n00b will partake in activites meant mainly to aggrivate other players.

newbs deserve a chance to grow and become better.
As a noun.
"You jump with the space bar, don't be such a newb"
"Obviously, this item is better... newb."
"Since your just a newb, i'll help you out."

Unlike the term noob, newb is a less offensive term which is used to describe someone new to an online community.

A newb, not to be confused with "Noob" or N00b", this word only means that this person who plays a game of any sort isn't that good at the game, but would like to become better at this game, not act childish and call everyone else "Noobs".
Someone who could be ranked as a novice in a game such as Halo or Halo 2, would like to become a better player and get a rank of apprentice, or Distinguished, surpassing the rank of a newb.

Evolving from the word New-byers, meaning new passing byers in town, this changed to newbie, the shortened form of this is newb.

A newb is a word used over the internet many times, usually meaning new to a subject/topic, usually a game.

A noob was evolved through the uneducated side of games played by usually children, runescape for example, where children didn't know the exact spelling of newb and changed it to noob.

Newb and noob shouldn't be confused however, newb is a new person to a game but wants to become better and be like the higher levels in a game. A noob is a new player who tends to be aggrovating and will usually spam, beg, or find any other way to annoy other players.

As not many people like those kind (noobs), the term has become something over the internet to become offensive.
High level: Hi
Newb:Hi, I'm a newb can you please tell me where to find an item for this quest?
High level:Sure, it's just over here:)
Newb:Thankyou:)

sometimes spelt newbie, A newb is a player new to a game. Inexperienced and occassionally frustratingly so. However, due to them being a newb, they should be treated with patience because everyone was new once. Very different to a n00b, who desire to create problems for all other players
Player 1: "Hey, I'm a newb and I'm a bit lost can you show me how to change weapons?"
Player 2: "No problem, you do this...."
The correct treatment of a newb
