It really depends on what you mean by "understand."
I'm still learning little tricks here and there. For example, pressing F1 takes away all GUIs on screen, and the player's hand or tool. You can fix it by hitting F1 again. I'm still learning redstone, and I consider myself pretty good at it. But, I couldn't tell you what a comparator does if my life depended on it.

I loved him! I started watching him after my first month of the game, and the devastating loss of my first world (Because I was such a noob I didn't know you should or could make a backup copy of your world. Just in case.).
I'm still a noob and probably will be for a long time.
Me too. Even though I learn something new every day, I sometimes learn it the hard way. Like losing my entire Minecraft world saves, because it was all on my great computer, Then the computer died horribly, and the hard drive along with it. The only reason I have a link to the time I started playing a year and a half ago was a saved on a laptop. I had used it for awhile while in bed for a week after an injury. Note to myself for the future: put my save files on a different device, just in case.
It took me about a week. Most of what I've learned were from Youtube videos. I'm still understanding a couple of concepts here and there up until now (how redstone works, where diamonds can usually be found, etc.) but it gets easier the more you play.
I have never been a noob. Well technically I have, but it was months after I discovered Minecraft that I actually was able to buy a card and play it. The time that I didn't have it consisted of SoI, and a low popularity but informative gaming channel. You could say I was addicted and educated at the same time.
