I suggest that if you have a new projection to contribute to the 
community, publish it is a peer-reviewed journal. If it is really great 
and new & improved, people will flock to is and use it routinely.

If is not a new projection, and you are creating a new map, choose the 
projection that you want. As daan said, a cartographer chooses a 
projection to meet a certain need (or a priority of needs). I doubt that 
you are going to change the world of cartography by posting on one
