Re: Pwns and Noobs

Pwns is a different word for 'owns'. It doesn't really matter which one you use, I think.

A newbie is somebody who's new at a forum, online game etc.
A noob is somebody that's just really bad at something.
N00bs are the same as noobs, but mostly use l33tspeak, and they think they're good.

I think that defines it.

Re: Pwns and Noobs

Pwn means the same thing as owned I belive.

A newb is a new memberr that isn't an idiot.

A n00b is a new member or old member that is an idiot.

Artwork. Why not critique so I can get better, plz :3

Re: Pwns and Noobs

The one time I go to check this place someone is asking about one of my favorite words: pwned.

What it means: Owned.
Where it comes from: Blizzard
Which game: One of the earlier WarCraft games.
How it happened: Blizzard servers were set to display "You owned the other team" when you successfully defeated your opponent in online combat. The 'p' and 'o' keys are next to each other and when the technical support guy keyed in the message he miss typed and it became "pwned". This error was never corrected.

Blizzard is the source for a lot of gaming and online terms. One that may be coming into play is "pulling a leeroy". This is thanks to a fan made World of Warcraft video. If there isn't a thread on that video I shall go make one.

"Your sig... flashes... too much O_o..."
"Sometimes, girls need to be told to be to keep in place. So whenever your arm candy starts to speak without being spoken to, I'd suggest you smack her, and/or verbally abuse her. It's the way Jesus would do things. And I follow Jesus. So, don't be sacreligious, and be sure to hit them whenever you see necessary."

Re: Pwns and Noobs

Well, I've always though they were pretty much interchangeable -- although I do tend to use "noob/n00b" accusingly as opposed to "newb/newbie".

I've also gone on the assumption that "own/pwn" were interchangeable, as the latter simply being a more leet-ish version of the former.

I did not know that about Warcraft. I didn't know about Warcraft, period, until like, a year ago.
