It also refers more generally to players who act like newbies even when they are at a high level. The related term twinkish, refers to a MUD that caters to twinks. The term twinkish originated in the mid-1990s as ANSI color became more prevalent in the DikuMUD genre. Games that used large amounts of color were referred to as twinkish. The first known MUD to earn the term as its primary description was Medievia, which was also nicknamed 'Medtheivia' due to its code origin controversy.
