I like the new look and feel... easier on the eyes and for navigating around. I haven't really messed around with the social community features, but in general the changes are great! If I had to be nitpicky about one thing, it's two shades of green on the default layout. You have lime green for links and a pea green for visited links, and they sorta clash.

Am I retarded? On the new default skin how do you tell if you have viewed that thread already. Generally its a color or bold change. Am I missing something?

exactly.

like I said, not to nitpick, but the two shades of green are so similar... yet clash. Maybe it could be changed to something like lime green for new thread, Fahrenheit orange for viewed, etc. :)

i never use the ROC default so i barely remember what it looked like. i just know it's black and green and my eyes can't handle a black background with bright font, i use vbulletin default.

The new features are cool, but I am not a fan of the new header. Way too busy IMO.

I am a web designer and I think it looks better. I also like that you kept the same feel since it already has some nostalgia to it.

I'm not through with a LOT of things including the css. As for the VB default, I'm working on one that I'm sure you'll love. It's very similar theme to the VBdefault but looks way better. I'll probably do away with some of the other themes to allow updates to work better. I'll also have pics of the themes, members rides and articles on the front page very soon.

I actually thought of making all of my sites have the same default theme and keep them in blue and black. But the last Time I changed the color of the theme on here I got blasted. But be forewarned. I'm going to make this place ROC very soon.

I dunno, I think it might grow on me. I think there is a little too much going on at the top of the page. Move the rabbit with crossbones to the left in place of the other rabbit. Might be able to do something better with the words around the car. I almost want to click on them.

I think there needs to be more of a distinction between the colors of new threads and read threads.

Otherwise, it's good.

suggestion:
Have a selection of headers that ppl can select to suit their preference. A few more designs would be pretty cool. (some with different rabbit photos, or different logos, some more simple, or more photoshoped, etc.)

Good Job though. Love the ROC Logo with the website address below it.
