I am nominating The_Bishop for his post:

I'm pretty new at Conquer Club.

This map is wonderful, really. But this is not exactly the classic World map.
The connection Kamchatcka - Mongolia (in this case Magadan - Manila) is missing.

Is it intentional or mistaken?
Let me know your point please

I second The_Bishop. But I contest your use of the word "noob." That generally implies some amount of stupidity or incompetence. I recommend you change it to "Newb of the Year Award."

Sure. I've always used them interchangeably, but if there is a distinction, I don't want to use the offensive one.

I don't know if anyone can contest the man who discovered the classic map mistake from obtaining the newbie of the year award.

Newb in this context refers to "new player".

Am I the only one that realizes that newb isn't an insult if it's true? Calling someone who started playing yesterday a noob is not an insult. Conversely, if someone is a newb in the insult sense, then they are by definition not actually a newb, and don't qualify for nominations here.

Nobody noticed it. It can be about anything. As long as a player is a) new, which I take to mean joined since Oct 2011 and either b) contributed to the site in a meaningful way or c) is an amazing player.

We are not making fun of the bishop. We are saying he is a great player.

I've played a few online games in my day and noob is not a nice word, even if you've just started. It's generally considered a slur.
