A newbie is any newcomer to the PPC, either a Boarder or an agent.

When a newbie is introduced on the Board, he or she will be welcomed by enthusiastic PPCers who will shower that person with virtual gifts, such as plushies and bumper stickers. Before engaging in PPC activities, newbies are encouraged (by which we mean required) to read Da Rules, and before writing PPC stories, they must get Permission. Aside from that, there is no formal initiation for new Board members, although for new agents, there are certain initiation rites.
