Why do I hate the “noob” word? Some people might misinterpret someone called “noob” as being stupid. Let me clarify its meaning: noob means newbie, people! And that means, you are basically somewhat new to something. Being noob is not the same as being not knowledgeable about all things. I won’t let anyone call me a “noob” anymore. try me. dare me. make my day…

I just don’t get it. I didn’t say “you’re a noob” to anyone. But I am called a noob?! Grrr….

I wanted to blog about my observation on different urls of users’
personalized/start page in webapps. Now, We all know that the
reason for this is very self-explanatory and basic: to make the user’s
personalized page easier for all of us to remember.

I prefer in url format in users’ personalized page is just by appending
the username of your registered users in your web app. Examples of sites
are delicious, twitter. Other sites use “subdomains” to
identify a user and display their profile. Examples are friendster, Sulit.

Some sites ask users to provide keywords, or tags to customize their own
personalized page to replace system generated urls. In,
you may optionally customize your own personalized page to replace some sort
of system generated UUID or something.
