All those threads talking about role-queuing.
Right, so this thread is going to be the go-to source for those threads with the idea of queuing up for a specific role. There's usually 2 or 3 of them on the front page, and a new one pops up daily.
The original poster usually thinks he's the first idiot to think the idea up and rather than using the search feature to find out if he's right about his originality, he just posts the thread.
So, this post will contain a link to every thread suggesting the idea. And every thread I see suggesting the idea will get a link back here. Maybe I can keep this thread bumped enough so that new threads will die more quickly and the discussion will move over here. And that way people will stop having to rehash the same conversation over and over and over and over and over again.

EDIT: This is a link to this thread for my copy & paste purposes: All those threads talking about role-queuing.
Yes, I seriously expect that by the end of this there will be at least 2 posts worth of links to threads started by people who think they're the first person to come up with this idea.
One more reserved post, just to be safe.
Discussion: The current meta is obviously the best way. Creativity can't possibly make a better meta, and the ideas of duo-mids, duo-jungles, and more can't possibly be good. Also, the idea of trolls like queuing as Garen mid (and you can't ban certain champions from certain positions, as some interesting ways have came up), can't possibly exist.
Nope, no flaws.
All right. The 3 posts that are now in the original post are just from the last 24 hours. I only took the posts that were on the front page of Summoner's Rift subforum at the time the thread was created, as I'm giving all of these threads a link back to here, and I really don't see the need to bump threads old enough to have made it to the second page.
But if I know the forums, I know I'll have about 25 links by Thanksgiving.
lol i look forward to this thread XD
And if you guys could help me keep it bumped and keep this thread near the top, it might discourage people from reposting the same idea.
Half the point of the thread is to show all those numb-skulls that YES, YOUR IDEA HAS BEEN POSTED ON THE FORUMS BEFORE. The other half of the point to the thread is to include all the arguments for and against the idea in one condensed location so that people can understand that the debate has happened hundreds of times already and all the pros and cons have already been discussed. We don't need yet another thread to discuss the same dusty old idea just because you weren't around for the first 9 million times we discussed it.
And the consensus every time?
Good idea, possibly great, but Riot and many players value creativity more.
Id say "Why not have 2 queues, one for role picking, one for just whatever" but I feel like increasing queue times for people in the higher ELO's isnt a good idea.
This already exists. It's called queuing with 4 friends.
