look up any word, like swoll:
 
1.
A person new to a game, concept, or forum. Not to be confused with n00b, a stupid person. Newbies are just new.
Dude, that guy just joined the forum yesterday and is a total newbie to HTML. You should tell him how to get an avatar since he doesn't know.

2.
A person that is new to a game or forum. Not to be confused with n00b, a derogatory term to define either a new user to a game/forum or someone who acts stupidly regardless of account age or time played.
I just joined (insert site) and I don't know what I am doing yet! I hate being a newbie.

Not to be confused by noob, a newbie is a newcomer to anything. Newbies can spell, but they lack in what's new to them. Noobs and newbies are kinda opposites, in a way. Plus, newbies are usually more respectful than noobs.
Newbie: Um, excuse me, TehPro...?

TehPro: Yes?

Newbie: Do you know how to move in this game?

TehPro: Yes, the W, A, S, D keys.

Newbie: Thank you.

TehPro: No problem.

One who has little experience and little skill. Originally a contraction of the phrase "new blood," it is not necessary an insulting term, although the derivative noob is almost always used in a negative sense.
LOL, that newbie's only lvl 6. :P

5.
A term that was developed in Vietnam since 60% of the new recruits died in their first 3 months of service.

The senior soldiers used to name the new recruits "newbies" so that they didn't have to know the real names of the soldiers when they died in the field.
We lost another newbie today Captain.
