    A good way to alert yourself and those around you of a possible n00b nearby is to look at their name. Many n00bs often choose the cliche, overused names based off of their favorite anime or game such and Dragonball Z, Yu-gi-OH, Inuyasha and the Final Fantasy series. These names are often horribly mispelled due to the fact that the original names are quickly taken.

    Do note that this isn't a sure-fire way to identify a n00b before interacting with them. This is simply a good way to know to approach with caution as there is a high possibility that that player may be a part of the n00b species.

    Heehee, I loved this guide on Alla, thank you for reposting it here! ^_^
    I have meet some players with character names.

    I have helps some excellent players starting out. Then later they so surpassed me cause I'm a sometimes player not a constant player, or maybe I'm just bad at the game.

    A Former One, and still might be

    I was a Noob once or maybe I was a Newb, but I made several Noob Mistakes.

    1.) I was partying in the dunes and trying to figure out how my Macros worked and uded a Range Atatck and got my party killed.

    2.) I was trying to do a RDM/THF combo and I healed a new player trying to be nice and then he wouldn't leave me alone. Asking for gil. Instead of giving it to him, I partyed with him so he coul get it him self.

    The next day as soon as I got on, he started chatting with me, wanting more help. I formed a party with him and a friend of mine. Then quicky logged and went to the amusment park, leaving my friend stuck with him (Bad I know, but I needed an escape)

    Well aperntly he was invited to my LS, so now not only does he bug me, but all others too, he was eventually kicked from LS and another too I found out. His reputaion is well know on my sevever. All because I decied to heal him.

    Just head to the Fan Works section and you'll find it stickied at the top.

    I'm going to post the old episodes up to 12 at random and then write more as time permits.
