Hello, I use WordPress and am used to schedule the posts. What I need to know about scheduled posts is when WordPress sends out a ping through ping services -- added in the ‘Update Services’ page of WordPress cpanel -- that automatically ping when you add a post.
Example: today April 7th I’m writing a new post and scheduling it to get it published April 12th. Does pinging happen April 7th or April 12th?

Thanks bill. I tested with Rss feed. It doesn't show up. However I don't know if this test is enough.
I had heard one of the failings of WP is it will ping when you add the post, not when the post is published live. That would be a major problem because I am used to add many posts in one time. As a consequence of that, if SE are alerted when I add posts in one time they could think I'm spamming.
Your post will ping on April 12th, I'm too using scheduled WP plug-in and automatically updating pings. You can easily check if ping works - ping it manually to one same service then your post will be published (not scheduled) and see what's happens - I tried it by myself and always getting message from most pings services "you already ping this blog or it pinged automatically thru wordpress exmp." or something.
