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.

That's a fantastic catch! I wonder if it was intentional when the Classic map was first created long, long ago to leave that connection out or not. The Classic map was a revamp of Classic Shapes, which was a replacement for the original Classic map (but that was before my time) =).

copyright issues? I doubt they would fail to see the real connections from the original game or forget about them... maybe to be safer they needed a little modification on the map itself, not just changing regions to capitals..

Well that's because Men have been Pussified. It's about as much of a slur as douchebag. It's only offensive if it's not true.
