Should we submit?

The deadline is approaching and we have this paper that might or might not be ready. Should we submit?

A lot can be learned only by going through actually paper review cycles. So it pays off to do our best to meet the deadline.

On the other hand, a bad submission might get its potentially good ideas scooped by the reviewers without receiving much useful feedback.

Thus, I recommend submitting only those with a reasonable chance of getting accepted but let the first author make the final call as the tie breaker.
