Do we really need "new contributor" messages for Stack Exchange staff?
I think it's useful, being a regular it's easy to forget that it likely took years to understand SE's functionalities, etiquette, etc... The only way for a new staff member to be affluent in all the skills you can develop in using the site is if they were recruited from within the community.
And I kind of think it's funny to get a system warning saying: "This staff member is still a newbie" :P LOL
