      The CMSBox admin panel allows users to edit the CSS controlling the layout of their arcade. We want you to do something amazing with it.

                        The deadline has been extended almost 2 weeks to March 16, 2008!

                        From www.jayisgames.com:

                        "The deadline for CGDC5 has come and gone, and the entries are in.

                        Looking over the 25 entries we have so far, although impressed, we think we could be a bit more impressed. Some of the entries need a couple more coats of polish, and many of you wished you had more time to finish up and get your entries in.

                        The judges and sponsors have talked it over, and we have decided to allow a bit more development time by extending the competition deadline by almost 2 weeks.

                        New deadline: Sunday, March 16, 2008 11:59PM (GMT-4:00)

                        Remember, the theme of the competition is UPGRADE, so let's upgrade those entries with some polish. See you on the 16th!"
