Setting a target week rather than a specific date is probably sufficient
granularity.

Clearly it can't be binding, but I'm sure most people would take a
pledge to deliver seriously.

It would also give advance notice of forthcoming subjects, which in
itself may inspire others.

Hi Beeza,

Actually I am not involved in planning the schedule in any way (outside
of my own shows, or advising on when to release). Anyone can pick any
day the like from the schedule. People delivering a lot of shows tend to
space them out on a Fortnightly basis, and that leaves a nice amount of
free slots for the newcomers.

Your idea of a specific day is interesting and you might not remember
but back in the early days of TWaTech, there was a concept that each
host would submit one show a month. There was even a reminder system
that emailed to say when your show was due. As with many good intentions
that falls to the side after a while as life gets in the way of HPR.

Ken.
