    I'd assume that Kraken meant how one would post a submission for the contest. For that, please regard the guidelines at the beginning of this post, but I'll quote the rules from Geit here anyway, just to clarify:
    The 72 Hour Contest is a semi-annual contest held once in the winter, and once in the summer. Mappers spend a set 72-hour length of time creating a map for submission. Maps can be submitted at any time during that length, but not before or afterwards. Hope this helped!

    Edit: BTW, this is the 100th post on the thread. Just sayin'

    More detail about that matter will come up in the week to come. The map submission won't open up until during the 72-hour period.

    So would stuff like this be allowed to be used as a placeholder and a timesaver, and if time comes up at the end, can be replaced?

    When the timer at the top of the site starts to countdown, start making a map. Make sure you submit aomething playable by the end of the countdown.

    I was doing some testing and unfortunately, I don't think my computer can handle streaming for the duration of the entire contest, much less streaming, hammer, vbct compiling, tf2, and any other things I might be doing. So feel free to just remove my twitch thing from the OP.

    I have a couple questions. Firstly, are we allowed to create threads for our entry/s before the timer starts (obv closer to the time in case we change our minds)? And secondly, does self-made custom content have to be made within the time, or is it whenever (like entity setups)?

    That rule doesn't specify anything about the time the content is/can be created though.

    I think it was mentioned previously in the post that you're allowed to create custom content during the contest.

    In terms of entity setups, I think they're the one thing that's allowed to be created before the contest starts.

    So it looks like I won't be able to map next weekend at all. Things got in the way. Oh well. I'll have to see that Friday morning, my time.

    Exactly.

    Your CC is allowed = it's allowed from any time
    OR
    Other people's CC is if it's publically available BEFORE the contest = it's allowed from before the contest
