Feedback, Suggestions and Stuff... adding to this as I think up more.

Q&A
Love the new Q&A field/tab/page, but there's a bug. If you type a lot into the text field, it scrolls to the right instead of just entering to a new line - if that makes sense. Suggestion: You should be able to allocate a map too (you have champions and items). There should probably also be a limit on how many champions/items you can select.

EDIT: I just noticed I replied as a comment instead of an answer, which is fine, but perhaps there shouldn't be the option to reply directly to the question? I imagine some people may post there as an answer (like I did) and not as an actual answer.

I also noticed that names don't have colours in Q&A. Is this to allow anyone to answer "anonymous of rank"? Would it be beneficial to include whether the users has a high elo (gold etc?) via a badge under their avatar?

Picks & Bans/Scorecard
With the Picks and Bans/Scorecard tools, could you make it so if you don't fill in a field, the field doesn't show up? For example, I may only want to show bans (top row), or I may not want to individually list every player's name. It'd be "prettier" if those fields were left bland/disappeared if not utilised. Another suggestion is disabling the ability to put the same champion multiple times. I know it probably won't happen (who would do that?), but it'd be nice if champions are eliminated from the list after they've been selected.

Wiki
I like the new section of the tab, it makes the wiki more prominent for sure. But I still think it's not a great part of the site yet due to the unprofessionalism of it. The main page is quite ugly - could Mowen, Flash or someone else artistically inclined make some really nice buttons or somesuch for each heading/wiki item? Additionally, we were talking in the Editor forums about trying to add an icon to each wiki page. So Dragon should be something like Teemo - this will inform users that the page actually links somewhere.

Scouts/Featured Guides
Could we possibly inform the public about what is going on here? Just for some clarity. For instance, why were Featured Guides removed from the Builds & Guides tab? Is this due to a possible rework on the Scout status?

Menu Bar
It's getting crowded. The texts is being squished, and I'm at 110% size - it'd be really small at 100%. Could maybe the Facebook/Twitter buttons be shrunk and stacked on top of each other so the other buttons can be enlarged? It just looks cramped to me.

Builds & Guides
The filters go all over the place. This is probably due to my screen being 110%.

Rune/Mastery/Item Planner
Perhaps as you choose each component, it can show you a preview of what it will look like? This is a very unimportant suggestion, just throwing it out there for consideration.

We did discuss the wiki icons a bit. We were thinking a quick easy solution would be just having one icon that represents it's a wiki page, that shows up beside the link like the champs / items / skills. Something like the icon that's beside the link to the Wiki.

I think the option of replying as a comment to questions is fine. You could do that if you somewhat know the answer but are not sure, or I'm sure there could be other reasons. Basically it's meant to be a bit open ended and we'd like to see how you guys will make use of the functionalities. :)

^That's a great compromise, actually.
