We have now had two posts here at TVP, and unfortunately neither one has received any comments. I am willing to entertain the possibility that this project is doomed to failure, but given the number of people who have expressed excitement about it to me, I thought I'd try to jump-start it.

So, I'm opening this post for comments and suggestions. Did you read the first couple of posts? Why didn't you comment? Would you be more inclined to comment if you could do so anonymously? Or if TVP changed in some other way?

Here are a couple of other ideas I've had/been given: Would people be interested in reading short essays from well-published philosophers on how they select venues in general and other publishing advice? One possibility is for me to try to contact some such people and request contributions.

Another thought: Would people be interested in a having Primary Commentor position to complement the Current Author position? That is, someone who believes that she has helpful things to say about publishing in area X could be matched up with and serve as moderator a for discusssion of some submission in area X.
