I would totally wait in longer queues for this.

The odds of the happening are pretty slim. And like I said, If you get reported for trolling in the promotional match. There needs to be some discipline.

Many, many people play this game.

At the very least, the queue could take extra time to search for people who are playing promotion matches, and if it takes too long it could just queue you with as many promotion players as possible and fill in the rest with non.

I said that about the duo queue. Just as many promotional people as possible.

hour+ promotional match ques are fine with you? Look at ur division. How many people got to promotional matches? Yes there are a lot of divisions, but there are also lots of time zones/time frames when some people can play.

The amount of people that play this game is ridiculous. And with this idea implemented into the system. More people would actually care to get a promotional match.

I've been suggesting this idea previosly in some thread. It should be a separate queue for promos, but it shouldn't prevent you from playing ranked.
When you are ready to go for promos (got to 100 LP) you get a chckbox when selecting ranked to play promo match. If the box is checked you can't go duo. After all promo match is a real evaluation of your personal skills (general skills, teamplay, cooperation and so on). You can't go to a next level just because your diamond friend DUO'd with you. The fact that you've gone for promos could as well have so loved by riot decision making idea - it should cost LP. Like you pay LPs for being allowed to compete for next division. If you fail - well you have to go through your division once again.
You still have the option to go grind more LPs in your current division and not play promos. This will as well increase your MMR and caould make advancing through low divisions faster as you will get more LP per win.
Chosing to get more LP than needed is a safe strategy cuz if you lose your promos you can go for your next faster, but if you win - all your insurance LPs are lost. Like you don't get any money from your car insurance if you don't damage it.
This is some sort of a complex idea that is not a hotfix or one-day implmentation. This is a major change to how leagues work. And about those diamond and platinum promos (sveral day queue issue) - well it shouldn't be that easy anyway. You still have option to play ranked and i don't actualy think that there are so few platinum and diamond players out there that you won't have 10 ppl trying to advance at once. You could as well be paired for higher lvl promos if your MMR suggests you're that good (matched to players of div5-div4 promos while queing to league promo).
In fact chalenger teir works almost the same now. You can't get there untill you prove that you're better than someone already there.
There could as well be a counter of how many players are ready for promos in your group so you could estimate how long the queue will take.

After all the whole idea of making promos almost separate queue matches the play-off-style play when you go for promos. It's like no matter how good you were during regular season if you lose your first playoff
