So there you have it! You were just called a noob because you died because a server mod accidentally smited you! There are many tempting reasons to call a person a noob, but think twice before you do!


My Experiences of Being Called a Noob

I don't know why everybody picks on me, is it because I started in 1.1 official release, is it because I hate PvP and fighting mobs? Well my friends call me a noob for the following reasons:
  • I play creative
  • I have only been playing for 1 year
  • I hate fighting mobs, so play in easy
  • I like using mods like TMI
  • I play Pocket Edition

There are many, many more reasons why someone can be called a noob! It is even worse when the person is very skilled and absolutely loves playing Minecraft. I have been teased numerous times for having a laggy computer and playing more creative than survival. I like adventure maps, but suck at parkour, but I like writing books and designing servers!


What Exactly is a Noob?

A noob mostly refers to a player who has been playing the game for a short amount of time. By a short amount, these means 1 month tops. Not 2, not 1 and a half. Think about how long you have been playing Minecraft, and your best friend coming up and calling you a noob! You wouldn't like it, would you? Even if they are better at the game than you, they do not have the right to call you a noob!


How Can I Deal With it?

Calling people noob is teasing. Teasing over and over again is bullying. So if people keep calling you noob for everything you do in MC, then they are bullying you! You can deal with it by
  1. Ignoring them, they will soon stop
  2. Showing your best talent in MC that no one else can do
  3. Tell someone about it

So they call you a noob, you don't call them a noob, what is wrong with those people?! Name calling should be taken like any other types of bullying!


If Nobody is a Noob, Then Why do They Exist?

I'll tell you one very important thing: You are not the noob, even if this is your first day, even if you can't play, even if people call you noob and you admit it. The real noob is the person who calls you a noob. That's right! One reason why people are called noobs is because the bully is jealous of the skills the 'noob' has. So everytime you call someone else a noob, they won't be the noob, you will be the noob!


In Conclusion

People hate being called noob. Bad people like calling people noob. Whether it is in Minecraft or not, you should not call people noob, say they suck etc. etc. because it hurts their feelings, and makes them feel down! Actually, if you like, print out this blog and show it to all of your friends who call you a noob, because name calling is not on!

Hmm theres a difference between newb and noob.
Just a lil sentence is incorrect.
A noob is somebody who played for a long time, but didn't have much experience with it. For example, a noob of shading,
A newb is a NEWb NEW, person to whatever game, project, or subject. You might have to change it a lil. Just saying. I think this blog is right though!

Remember back when roblox was popular that everyone called people noobs as an insult and then you reminded them it meant new person and they felt like an idiot? Yeah. :3

I've been playing for 3 years now, before the original release, and people call me a noob when I do things. I guess building things in an inefficient way is being a noob? Well, maybe, but I get the job done... ._.

Listen, there is a difference between a "newb", and a "noob". A "newb" is what you describe. A "noob", on the other hand, is someone who, even after playing for at least a year (or something), just outright sucks, or cannot do something that is painfully obvious (example: the people in the Snuggie commercials are noobs at using blankets.) Now, I've had moments like this, but I've quickly gotten out of them by asking "I AM A NOOB HOW DO I X" (Now just add stupid NoCaps plugin for end result!) Another player then tells me how to do the thing. Sorry, just had to get that out.

What I do:
  • Tell them that everyone has been a noob before, even you.
  • Tell them to bug off.
  • move on with my life
If your friend is calling you a name, then they don't deserve to have you as a friend.

I agree with most of this, but if Notch called somone a noob who had been on minecraft for 10 minutes, how would make notch a noob? See the only problem is that your saying the people that are called noobs are more experianced that the people calling them noobs. I mean if you saw a guy with full diamond tools and armour why would you call them a noob? Yes you would be angry but you woudn't say "your a noob because you have full diamond stuff". You would probably call them a hacker or a cheater not a noob. If you see somone trying to mine bedrock, you call them a noob and you have full armour, how does that make YOU a noob?

I still think if you build a dirt house in MC your a noob
If you dont know how to craft things and refuse to learn(I have a friend who does this) your a noob
And finally if you refuse to play survival your a part noob... cus creative is fun but you should still at least do survival.

Noob means Newbie. Noob in the gaming community means new or inexperienced gamer. What if... a person had been playing Minecraft for three years. He wanted to build a shelter and be quick and resourceful about it so he chooses dirt. Because he saved time on building his house, he was able to find food, materials, and mine many ores. BOOM!

I agree with your second point but you are not a noob if you play creative instead of survival... Have you seen those huge-ass epic maps that will make you shit pixelated bricks? Yeah, well those weren't built in survival buddy. You wouldn't call the creator of one of those maps a noob.

ONE
more point: It's YOU'RE not YOUR FFS!

Also nice blog Whoever :)

Who the frick takes so much offense at a joke!? This is why America will crumble. The kids here will murder themselves because they can't suck it up. It is just noob. I have been bullied many times and never reported it. The bullies are good friends with me, and we get along. I am friends with the outcastes, and basically everyone. It isn't that hard. You just want attention if you feel like the word noob is that offensive. get over it. It's that simple. *Shakes head* *sigh*; extroverts.

There's a few bits of this I can relate to. I started playing 1.7.3, before the hunger bar existed. The hunger bar completely ruined survival for me. I hate pvp as well. The amount of PvP servers have sky rocketed since I started playing. (The following has nothing to do with the blog) When I used to join Classic servers, I was watched like a hawk. Diamond for you.
