For sure it should be counter-cyclical with Who Is Hiring, but I was wondering if maybe it would be good to put on weekends.

Mondays could also work, since it would allow people an extra weekend to finish what they want to show. Also it will allow them to procrastinate at work.

I'd say the Saturday after the paycheck closest to the 15th. People on bi-weekly pay schedules have funds again and it's counter cyclical to the 'Who's Hiring' threads.

The list of bi-weekly paychecks for 2020 is here: https://www.nfc.usda.gov/Publications/Forms/1217n_20.pdf

Meaning that June's thread should be on the 20th. July on the 18th. August on the 15th. September on the 12th. October on the 10th.

Sunday seems like a good day

Sunday might be good because then the question "what are you working on" is associated with what you might be working on over the weekend, i.e. things you're doing for curiosity, fun, or obsession, rather than a workaday job.

Second or third Sunday, evening.
