A "noob" is a person who is new or inexperienced in a subject, usually an online game. Noobs are usually annoying and excessively stupid. Do not confuse noobs with newbs, who are inexperienced players that tend to be more mature and strive to become better.

XDA is about developing and is for developers. Any user that recognizes that will gain the most benefit from this site


 
This is and always will be a site for developers, pure and simple. Without them we are nothing, without them there would be no reason for XDA Developers to exist; we should never ever forget that. Without them this place would not be called XDA-Developers but something else, e.g Mobile Phone User Support Services For Ungrateful Nerds.

Previous devices: HTC: Treo 650 - Excalibur - Diamond - Diamond 2 - Maple - HD2 - Rhodium - Desire Z - Desire HD - Vivid - Sensation - One V - One X - Titan II - One X+ - DNA - Butterfly

What a fantastic definition... you should definitely consider putting together maybe something along the lines of an android based user help guide or even just a help guide with common terms, abbreviations, slang etc... ... i would definitely buy it

Tho it has been lost over the course of time, noob is actually derived from newbie.

What? It definitely takes more experience playing xbox than on a regular pc. Its alot harder to play a fast firstperson shooter game on any console. Everybody plays computer
