Why, Legacy writers? Whyyyyyyy?! --Thetoastman 06:06, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

  • Too late. Besides, what else would they call him? -- Riffsyphon1024 06:09, 23 November 2006 (UTC)
    • I don't know... some derivation of 'youngling'? How about 'yoog'? --Thetoastman 06:13, 23 November 2006 (UTC)
      • I'm fine with noob. lol — beeurd talk 22:19, 23 November 2006 (UTC)
  • It just rolls off the tongue like cactus in the Star Wars universe, doesn't it. --QX100 10:52, 24 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Actually, if I remember right, in Hayden Blackman's original Manual to Star Wars: Galaxies "Noob" is mentioned as being a Gungan term that had spread to more widespread use. Basilisk 04:06, 28 November 2006 (UTC)
    • That's "newbies" not n00b. MOF I have the manual within arm's grasp. DAWUSS 02:45, 29 November 2006 (UTC)
      • Well, it sounds related, and has a similar meaning, so I'll make a minor note of it. --Thetoastman 07:27, 30 November 2006 (UTC)

Wierd Edit

Apparently, both Rune Haako and I edited at 1:48. In the history his appears before mine, but when you compare versions, his is after mine. What's more, his edit doesn't appear in the aricle, yet it does when I go to the edit page. What happened? Unsigned comment by Darth Oblivion (talk • contribs).

  • Wikia's being screwy. Similar things have happened to me, and I've been intending to ask about it on their IRC channel. -- I need a name (Complain here) 13:15, 5 December 2006 (UTC)

So, with the current trend... Edit

...any estimates on how long it's going to be exactly until we have the entire Wikipedia article on 'noob' in the Behind the scenes section? --Thetoastman 03:42, 11 December 2006 (UTC)

Template Edit

  • Why not put it. The template simply says nickname. It says nothing about a person's name.--Herbsewell 23:28, 13 December 2006 (UTC)
  • The template is aimed at things like people like Pinky who probably had a real name but we don't know it. While "noob" would be a nickname, it is not a nickname for another word. It's actually what they called people. While the template is literally correct in that "The title of this article is a nickname," it would be incorrect in that the "subject that lacks an official name, and is known only by its nickname," since it IS official canon. Therefore, the template would be incorrect. Maybe we should create a "slang" template as it would be more accurate. Wildyoda 23:35, 13 December 2006 (UTC)
    • Well it's both slang and a nickname.--Herbsewell 23:38, 13 December 2006 (UTC)
      • Why is is still up there?--Herbsewell 23:41, 13 December 2006 (UTC)
        • Huh? Oh, and Wildyoda is correct. --Imp 23:43, 13 December 2006 (UTC)
          • I only saw it as slang and nothing more. -- Riffsyphon1024 23:44, 13 December 2006 (UTC)
            • It's both a nickname used by stormtroopers and slang because, it is a common word.--Herbsewell 23:47, 13 December 2006 (UTC)
              • Yes, you are correct. It IS a nickname. But the template does not relate to nicknames as such. Compare the Pinky article I referenced earlier to this. The nickname template as it is written is simply not valid for this article. Wildyoda 23:50, 13 December 2006 (UTC)
                • Well it's there...--Herbsewell 23:52, 13 December 2006 (UTC)
                  • If you're still seeing the template, you might have to empty your cache.--Lord OblivionSith holocronSith Emblem 23:54, 13 December 2006 (UTC)
                    • I did. I even tried it on two computers. I also saw it on two different browsers.--Herbsewell 23:56, 13 December 2006 (UTC)
                    • Same thing for me, I don't know what's up with it. Does it have something to do with the category down at the bottom or is the software just coninuing it's habbit of being screwy today? Whoops, forgot to sign in earlier. --User:Wildyoda
                      • The software has been rather screwy lately.--Lord OblivionSith holocronSith Emblem 01:09, 14 December 2006 (UTC)
                        • I think I fixed it somehow.


  • The term newbie is used in Vector Prime at least twice. 15:09, 10 February 2007 (UTC)
