Can't really call this a noob mistake, having discovered I make it only a short time ago.
Been working on an auxiliary Enchanting Station, built into the upper floor of a desert temple at the end of my West Road, about 1.5k blocks from home. As always, it's all done legit. Considering the site's limited sugarcane field, cattle pen, and wood stockpile, much time was spent gather needed resources for all those bookshelves. Installed the final bookshelf during this morning's play session. Not an hour later I read that bookshelf requirement has been reduced from 30 (which is how many I installed) to 15! Assuming that's correct, I made twice as many shelves as needed.
There's an obvious excuse for my ignorance. According to the Wiki, the change occurred with MC 1.31. I skipped 1.3x all together, going from 1.25 straight to 1.4x, due to either my texture-pack of choice or my sole mod not having been updated for 1.3x until several days prior to 1.4 release.
No big deal. All those shelves surrounding the bench look mighty fine.
On my first survival world, I had spawned on a semi big island. I just started so I thought everything was super dangerous and I should be extra careful. So I got cobble and iron and all the beginning crap, and I started my first house, in the side of a mountain. I build it to look cool with a huge tower extending up to look for creepers and a bunch of trapdoors over the ground in front of my house that I opened every night to protect against zombies. I had spent my precious iron to make a iron door to enter my base. Then I dug really low under the earth to make my living quarters and put like three trapdoors over the entrance. Then I put anther two iron doors. Then I made a panic room with ANOTHER iron door and a trap door over a deep hole in the ground which I would hop into if mobs penetrated my base. Super unnecessarily safe, right? WRONG! I was adding a new area to my house, and I was interrupted in real life so I left it unfinished. When I came back mobs swarmed my underground cellar. I killed them and left, but they came back. I scouted the whole house to see what was wrong but everything was normal. For a week I went crazy, aghast (Now tat I play Minecraft, that word has whole new meaning.) at how this would happen. Only then did I realize monsters spawn in the dark... and my renovated area had NO torches. Ahh, good ol' newby days...
i don't know which version of minecraft i played in that time but the 3rd or more time i was killed by the "Human" mob which is removed now. I don't really remember which version that was but it might beta or aplha versions. >3>
Definently would be going to the nether the day after I bought the game. I used to have alot of lag so the render distance was on tiny, I thought there was ground below where I jumped, but instead ended up taking a swim in some red water.

I really gotta make a Youtube one of these days...
1.Spending 2 minuets trying too break bedrock.
2.Breaking a zombie spawner to move it to my mob trap and it only spawned pigs. (Before 1.4.2 when spawners dropped.
3.Thinking I was in peaceful mode I got attacked by Kamakazie cave spiders in an abandoned mine.
My first time playing Minecraft was at my friends house during the beta. He had a bunch of diamond gear and other valuables, and let me take over for a bit. I didn't notice the pool of lava until it was too late. Lets just say he wasn't very happy.
The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
My noob experience;
First started playing the game and was on the hunt to find all of the resoucres. I never really looked at the wiki to much except for basic recipes. I was on my last quest for diamonds; but I did not know what the diamonds looked like. I wound finding bedrock. I used a pick axe for a good while; I even made a gold picaxe thinking gold was stronger than iron. My memory doesnt go back that far but Im pretty sure I didnt find out till days later what diamond blocks really looked like.
