Timed Publish

As you post any media onto this site you are greeted with the option to publish live or not. My suggestion is that if you choose to not publish live you are also treated with the option to publish at a specific time and date.

I feel like this would be a small but useful addition that while not dramatically changing the site would make a welcomed addition.

I'm with Yuki on this topic. I enjoy spacing stuff out more instead of uploading it the second I finish, and it would be nice to be able to keep my schedule of uploads even when I'm away.

I mean like, if you don't want to do a mass upload and want to space them out.

Just upload them when you have finished them? Is it really that important to wait with uploading?
(Actually curious, not rhetorical. I just upload whenever I have something to upload. Do a lot of people wait with uploading to space out their content more?)

People going on holidays without internet would be a suitable use for it.

Say I was going somewhere where I would have no internet, so I made a backlog of skins that I wanted to upload. I could set a specific time and date (regional or the same as PMC's servers, dunno yet) for them to be uploaded.

It's a nifty idea, but would need refining to be made a thing.

I don't see the actual use for this. The reason you don't want a submission live is either because you don't want it on your profile anymore or because it's not done yet. I don't see why you would want (at that time) to re-publish a submission you don't want on your profile. Unfinished submissions can just be uploaded once they have been completed (you are already on the editing page by then).

The only minor reason I can see is that there are "prime hours" on PMC, making those better times to upload. But I don't think this is worth all the effort and resources required to make it work.
