Why are new members generally seen as Noobs?

One of the reasons I registered is to post my work, not to ask stupid Questions (expect of this one, sorry for that but I need to get my 10 Posts)

Kind regards Uwe

Noobs are seen as noobs

If you want to share your work.. share it in general section... and report the thread asking to move it to development after you get 10 posts... which you will get in same thread or you can get it by answering questions in Q& A section.. its not like 10 posts is that hard.. it hardly takes 1 hr to get it properly..

You release that the Site is for Developers yes, however 99% of newly registered users are not developers thus this is put in place.
The site is also about helping each other so why not answer some people questions (as if your already a developer im sure there are questions you can answer) help a few people and boom you have more than enough posts

Well if your smart enough to offer work for development you've got to be smart enough to read and understand XDA's simple requests.
Reading the rules is vital if you want good treatment here.

More direct answer...

99.9% of the new user registrations are just that, Noobs. They have absolutely no idea what they are getting in to.

I am sorry for asking this (probably) stupid question. Nevertheless, thanks for your answers.

I would like to apologize

Kind regards, Uwe

You can be a Noob and still know what your doing.
Also think, 99.9% is a bit high on the Noob scale.
