Would be better as "newbie", but I guess not everyone knows the difference in terms. lol
How about "Map Making Tips for Beginner"? Sounds way more formal and it doesn't give me a negative impression of the person who asks for it.
when they call themselves that, it's not meant to be derogatory, only to express that they're not as knowledgeable in that specific field.
Even though a person may not be a noob (as in the "real" meaning of it), but they could feel that way by asking a simple question.
Don't be so sensitive. Mentally replace the term "Noob" with "Beginner" and just write the person off as in-eloquent and move on with your day. Life is too short to take offense to such trifling matters!
I'm not taking offense to it, but I am a bit concerned by it. Meh, maybe I should just mind my own business.
They don't understand the difference between "noob" and "newbie"
