Credit for putting this together goes to EncasedShadow.
[Edit]As there is a problem with forum attachments at the moment please use the given links to see pictures.

Creating threads
If you have a question, search (http://eu.leagueoflegends.com/board/search.php) first make a new thread later. Raising an old thread (Necroing) is better than clutter in my opinion. Note: only raise issues that are relevant to the thread. "Lawlz" or "O.o" will probably get you downvoted

Search Button (http://eu.leagueoflegends.com/board/attachment.php?attachmentid=14&stc=1&d=1274812365)

I also see a lot of people posting links to outside file hosting for pictures. Its nice to save Riot some bandwidth but its also inconvenient and I'm suspicious of links thanks to vampire forum games and rick rolls. I have included a handy pictorial guide below. If you want to postition pictures in a post like I am attach them and use then use the [attach] tags around the id number in the post where you want the picture

Attachment "interface" (http://eu.leagueoflegends.com/board/attachment.php?attachmentid=15&stc=1&d=1274812365)

If you want to create a poll use the create a poll option at the bottom of the create new thread page.
Poll "interface" (http://eu.leagueoflegends.com/board/attachment.php?attachmentid=16&stc=1&d=1274812365)

If you decide later you want to attach a poll to a thread you made use thread tools.
Thread tools (http://eu.leagueoflegends.com/board/attachment.php?attachmentid=17&stc=1&d=1274812365)

Viewing posts and profiles

If you're browsing the forums and see a thread but want a short preview of a thread just scroll over the title.
Thread preview (http://eu.leagueoflegends.com/board/attachment.php?attachmentid=18&stc=1&d=1274812365)

Want to see if someone responded in a thread you posted in? Find a thread you posted in but lost to a wave of threads? You could use advance search on your name, but you can also click your name in a thread and see up to 500 of your past posts.

Also if you don't know what a forum group is you can scroll over the small ? in the upper left corner of their profile and get a short description.

Also borrowing from Jozraels FAQ
[/URL]“What do the different avatars/usergroups represent?”

  • Red-Riot [Featuring different champion avatars]: These are the Developers. They are the most knowledgeable and are the only usergroup to have power over you, the player. They wield the almighty banhammer, so be good for goodness’ sake.
  • Green-Emissari (http://eu.leagueoflegends.com/board/attachment.php?attachmentid=21&stc=1&d=1274812365)es: These players go above and beyond to help the LoL community as a whole prosper as well as assisting new players stand on their feet in this competitive world of LoL. They are active on the forums and promote LoL in various capacities.
  • Blue-Adjudicators (http://eu.leagueoflegends.com/board/attachment.php?attachmentid=22&stc=1&d=1274812365): These players have been involved with LoL since very early in the closed beta where their assistance was invaluable. New Adjudicators acquire this status through especially helpful Test Realm feedback.
  • Orange-Wrenchmen (http://eu.leagueoflegends.com/board/attachment.php?attachmentid=24&stc=1&d=1274812365): These players have invested time on the Help & Support board solving a variety of issues. If your game is making your computer play Justin Biebers music or your screen explodes, these are the avatars you want to be looking at for helpful answers.
  • Purple-Council: (http://www.leagueoflegends.com/board/image.php?u=368&dateline=1257913530)These players advise Riot on the current state of competitive LoL and how to improve it.

I obviously know about Riot having Champion avatars, but my question is if an average user can use a champions portrait as avatar?

EDIT: Can we actually use any avatars at all?

Caps Lock is a button commonly found to the left hand side of letter A on your keyboard. It is used as a permanent Shift button and makes every text you type written in capital letters. It is useful for when you are trying to emphasis something in text without using surplus BB code however entire sentences written out in capital letters, especially online, tend to get your post flagged as a troll post and thus not read.

So, try that again.
