The n00b title is an important forum tradition that serves a critical maintenance function.

In any group of people, there are those who are aware of the larger context, and who speak up when they have something of interest to the larger group (we'll call them 'signal'); and then there are those who are oblivious and will keep right on replying compulsively, long after they've run out of anything to say (we'll call them 'noise'). There's a value to the 'noise' group, since their non-statements can keep the engine of conversation running, acting as a carrier wave for the 'signal' contributors to keep contributing content - but this value is completely dependent on keeping the signal-to-noise ratio above a certain level.

Once a n00b starts replying to another n00b, it's just a never-ending infinite loop of noise. Neither of them is able to stop replying. Therefore the n00b banner was invented.

Thanks to this banner, I don't even have to read the content of the posts anymore; I just look for two red banners in a row and my thumb comes down on the ban button almost by itself. It's super efficient! Infinite loop solved!

Things i remember about Maverik who has posted 392 times:

6. he is from Denmark
7. he likes Mandalorians
8. hasn't posted any Lego

Most of this i learned from the introductionary post in the "New people" forum. That's a lot of noise.
Edit: a lot of reiterative noise

He posted a few figs in overwatch's contest, so he has posted Lego before.
