    There fixing the bugs which is a positive, but overall I'm still not a fan of it at all. From the look to the navigation everything just doesn't jive with me.

    I don't care for the input box to be above the content.
    You don't see that on other sites or blogs.

    I still like VB4 better I'm not a fan of the overall look for VB5 so I don't see a reason why I need to upgrade. Hopefully they'll make VB5 better as time goes on.

    Its getting stronger by the day I think, though there is still a long way to go but I think that it will be a strong product when all the bugs and enhancements (CMS, proper blogging) will be addressed and completed.

    The user registration page would be one of the things I'd change. I don't like having to enter your birthday before proceeding to the next step of user registration. I don't know what else I'd change apart from that, but I won't consider upgrading until they have more mods and templates available.

    That's the same was on vb4 and vb3, which can both be disabled if the admins don't care about age.
