Warning: Steem witnesses executed a hard fork on 2020-05-20, seizing 23.6M STEEM from 65 accounts. The funds were transferred to an account named @community321, the ownership (and intentions) of which have not been revealed. The witnesses claim to have been targeting accounts which defended against a hostile takeover in early March, but at least 2 accounts on the list have been inactive for over 4 years.

A small note about posts auto-archiving (after 7 days)
<center> **After 7 days** from being posted, 
a post or comment will be archived into the blockchain.
<br>
This means **any new votes on that item are null/void**. 
(but trying may still consume voting power)
Commenting on an archived item is still possible, 
but ~~edits/~~votes are not.
<br>
For most purposes, this will be fine.
For contests lasting longer than 7 days, it creates some issue.
A sign of 'upvote' for purpose of the contest could be: 
"+1" as a comment.
<br>
depending on the contest host and specific rules, this problem may not even exist, but for [❉▦[ Dawn of the Phantasms ]▦❉](https://steemit.com/hive-135459/@alphacore/dawn-of-the-phantasms), this 7 day period has recently ended, and it would not be a very useful tutorial if it didn't reveal this problem upfront. In cases like these, you should look to the host for instruction on how each particular contest handles the 7 day time limit.
<br>
This 7 day period being passed also affects certain comments/posts in a few other ways, such as rounding their listed value to "$0.00", which will affect the default comment sorting of "trending". Any comments beyond 7 days will usually lose their default placements if the thread is still active, depending on the specific platform you're using to view the blockchain. (this is a simplified explanation, but don't worry too much for now.) 
<br>
As a final note: this means that ~~ongoing-edits are not easily done for long term threads~~ such as bug reports or adamzero's CEO b-day countdown, but in time, you will devise many ways around this small limitation.

I could run a blitz contest, I'm pretty sure making each round in a standard-length piecemaker contest a separate thread would be excessive

Sorting comments by 'age' can help a bit for this type of scenario, and it would be possible to have each round take place in response to a host-made comment while the tournament rules are the post itself. Such as the host making a comment "[ROUND 1 ENTRIES]" and people reply to that.

There are other unexplored options as well, but ~~the primary limitation is that the original post cannot be edited after 7 days~~ for things like having (ongoing)/(finished)/etc. in title to show status, or even results edited into the post at the end.  

~~This is one downside that will be hard to get around completely here, compared to a normal forum~~. Most of the common problems people will find here have some sneaky tool that exists to solve it (although it would be quite the overload to express them all upfront), but archiving into blockchain is not something that a simple tool will change, so it's important for everyone to know about ~~the 7 day edit/vote period~~.
