What I want to do is avoid "the PSC must follow the thread closely to know when to say *now is the time, OP! Strike!*"

What about:

"After you've seen the response you get, and you think you've engaged as much as is useful with any response, post that you'd like the PSC to greenlight a formal proposal."

This creates an unambiguous trigger event for PSC to do something, and the something is clear:
 * say "yes please do"
 * say "no, you have more work to do, which is X"
