Weekly vocab revival?

Dear fellow conlangers!

Recently, I was thinking of reviving the weekly vocab.  And the first
step of continuation is, as we all know from TV, the rerun.

So I was thinking of posting automatically every week one of the old
weekly vocabs that currently sleep in the archives.  It is currently
fodder for more than half a year of work, I think (there are > 30
posts IIRC).

The idea is that it is much easier to find the motivation for
inventing vocab if someone else provides you with small chunks of work
regularly.  And since there are new conlangs, we need new vocab.  Some
people have stated here that vocab is hard for them to work at, so I
suppose some motivation would be good.  Therefore, I think, the old
weekly vocabs may validly be reposted.

Whenever someone comes up with a new set of words, I will happily
enqueue it into the automatical weekly posting mechanism, with higher
priority so that original vocab will be posted first.  This would also
take the burden of continuously thinking of new vocab from one single
person and distribute it -- I would simply gather what whoever sends
to me and enqueue it, keeping it at small, regular chunks.

What do y'all think?
