1) League of Legends is a diverse game; what I know will be different from what you know, so let's share!
2) Quoting directly from a guide is appreciated, don't forget to link back to the guide in order to give the author some exposure.
3) If your tip is fabulous, it'll be featured in this post!

Post your tips, tricks, advice and know-how here. There have been countless "help me" or "I'm new" threads. I want to consolidate every single useful tip possible here, in order to give people who are new or wanting to climb elo a place to read up on words of wisdom that have helped others improve their gameplay. So, if you have ever come across a piece of wisdom so profound that it has changed the way you play League of Legends, share it with us! :)

Lastly, keep it short and sweet!

If you want to farm safely when one of your inhibitors is destroyed, you can farm the small creeps and leave the super minions alive and they will push close to your base. This allows you to farm from the safety of your base and denies the enemy team a lot of farm.

Since this is aimed at new players, and as it hasn't been mentioned yet, always last hit. Don't stand there endlessly hitting the enemy creeps, aim to only kill them when they're really low HP. Hitting the creeps endlessly pushes the lane, making it easier to be ganked from opposing players.

Remember to take the enemy Nexus.

If the enemy is not on the map, and you have limited vision, avoid face-checking brushes if possible. If you have abilities like Glitterlance or Mystic Shot which have a noise indicator to help you determine whether enemies are in the brush or not, use it!

Always write timers in chat. There's no way you'll remember all of them. It's really useful to know when a buff will spawn, so you can be there in time, at least before the enemy jungler will steal your team's buff.
This also works for Dragon and Baron, it's really helpful to know when to back off from a push and quickly grab a free amount of gold for your whole team.
It even helps with warding - there's no real use of warding the Dragon when it's just been taken.

I really like this thread idea.
Don't really have any tips off the top of my head, but I'll make sure to keep this thread in mind next time I see something! :D

Pay attention to your surroundings. There's a bunch of skills with particles visible, even if the champion isn't such as Deceive or Heightened Senses.

I heard this once before can't remember where or from who but it has improved my game immensely

"League of Legends is not about knowing what you can do to your opponents, but what your opponents can do to you"

like Annie for example when there is a whirlwind animation around her, her next ability has a 100% chance of stunning the next thing she hits knowing that she can do that to you may save your life.

League of Legends isn't about who has the most kills or makes the most plays, it is about who makes the least mistakes.

1. Don't be greedy, this is for the weak because you can easily get ambushed or fall in a trap when you are trying to get an "easy kill".

2. Map awareness, always pay attention to the map so you can prevent yourself from getting ganked or overextended in the worst moment.

3. Always stay with your team, it doesn't matter how fed you are you just can't be around the map 1 v 5ing the enemy team so instead of that be a leader and learn how to communicate and coordinate with your team.
Gave you a good laugh or helped? rep+ so i can know ;)

Thanks to TinyStar, Jhoi, Xiaowi, Virus, Bard and Arcana(eww)...for my signatures!

Elohell is like Irelia's stun: if your real level is equal or lower than the level you are in, you're STUNNED there forever. If your actual level is higher than the level you are in, you're just SLOWED in your way up.

When a tower goes down it is imperative to ward the nearby entrances to the jungle. The amount of map control gained/lost by a tower going down is truly immense if you can capitalize on it. Make sure to ward the nearest buff and try to catch out your opponents. This applies for both your jungle and theirs, depending on which tower went down.
