"I apologize if this thread is in the wrong section, if so, please move it somewhere that is suitable"

I only have 4 tips for you finding diamonds... sorry about that..

My tips work for me, but I don't know if it works for you xD
I did not copy this tips from anywhere, I made it,

Okay, while following my tips, i found a total number of 56 diamonds. Here it goes!

Things needed: 4-5 Iron Pickaxes, A Bucket of Water (Incase if you fall into lava), Full Stack of torches, Flint and steel (For Bombing xD) and    :tnt: Tnts!

   :Diamond:  We all know that Diamonds can be found on layer 16 and below.  :Diamond:

                                      
1)   :Lava: You can mostly find diamonds near lava.  :Lava:

2)   :log:  Make sure you mine a big shaft/tunnel :log:

3)   :ironore: And the most greatest tip (for me) is that Diamonds can be found among other ores! So make sure you mine above, under left and right the ores  :ironore:

4)  :tnt: If this tip doesn't work, then try BLOWING  UP!! the place with tnts. But make sure you place the tnt in the correct place. Trust your instinct :)  :tnt: (Not so good tip :( )

I Hope you like my tips!

If it works, you might wanna give me a green plus right in the bottom right corner :)

Happy Mining :D

Tips from other fellow people :D (Give them a green plus if it works) :D

Make sure to mine on level 12. It is totally stuffed with ores.

Tnt removes most of the drops, so you just end up with a hole. Basically if you're using Tnt, you're losing potential diamonds.

The best tip for finding diamonds is, dum dum dum duuum! Branch Mining.

I've only made one serious branch mine so far, but I found... I think it was about 15 diamonds fairly quickly. I also found a ton of redstone, iron, coal, gold and lapis. What it does is that instead of making a big hole to find ore, you make tunnels quite close to eachother to eliminate almost every possibility that ore will not be visible in at least one tunnel. Works like a charm, it's structured and it looks good.

Happy mining  :)

Not sure if it still works. But you can use Ladders as sort of a way to get up higher places. - - Quoted from a post by Unit7 :P

Diamonds are scattered randomly near the bottom of the world. It doesn't have any connection with other ore or lava, those just happen to form at the same depth. The only tip there is, is that you should mine around level 12 or so.

These are quite bad tips.
Using TNT destroys several diamonds. Mining level 12 won't do anything, the diamonds are spread out over levels 0-16, not on one specifically, although they CAN be, if you're "lucky".
It's possible that there are more diamonds close to lava and other ores, but I don't think I've heard it anywhere else. Source?

The best tip for finding diamonds is, dum dum dum duuum! Branch Mining.
Follow this tutorial:

Not every Diamond is Diamond, so try not to get excited too much. You may be mining and stumble into a pit of lava, and see an eerie blue glow, and mistake it for diamonds. You ran to it, only to find you are swmming on lava. You come back to try to reach your precious Diamonds again, only to find it was Lapis Lazuli. Remember, if you see any blue ore, inspect closely to see if it's true diamonds, or it is just Lapis Lazuli. Diamonds have a more turquoise color Posted Image, while Lapis Lazuli haves a more sea-blue color Posted Image.
