Here is mine for BM and WW, a few images to make stuff clear.
I use Pitbull for unit frames, Bartender (razernaga setup, left bar -> shift modifier, right bar -> ctrl modifier) for the bars and Tellmewhen for the auras (<3 it, and the author who is very helpful, the conditions options make it a very powerful and practical addon). The 2 chatboxes, left = general, party, raid, dbm, boss emote - right = guild, trade, pet battles, non-boss npc emote, loot etc. Helps to not miss anything important.
here is the setup icon screen: The 3 on the left and right are for pvp, only the ones closest to the action bars are visible, the other ones above are the setup for the meta icons (the eye-icons) and are linked therein.
Here it is in action, I use a 3 icon setup for all my chars, one on the left, the right and the hard hitters in the center - for monk this is the chi building abilities and fists of fury (unhighlighted when off cd, highlighted when 3 chi are available). Left of the Center icon is a cooldown button, it's the most ridiculous on BM tank and has about 9 icons used there.
Near the action bars are 4 icons, 2 on each sides, used for buffs and debuffs (the monk tank is the only one that needs a 2nd set of 4 above those), and this setup is used similarly for all my toons (monk, druid, dk, shammy, pally, warrior, rogue, mage, etc )
Here it is in action, the only icon not showing below is the stagger icon (above Weakened Blows), I use the polearm Jab icon as I find the default punch one makes it hard to distinguish from keg smash & expel harm.
Switched mine up to be more minimal/basic. I deleted everything, then just downloaded NCB, NugEnergy, TellMeWhen, Quartz, and OmniCC. Set it up in a clean manner. I don't feel like a lot of addons are needed to display the information you need (despite previously believing so). I'm really liking the simple and basic feel of this, a lot. What do you think?
I quite like it, could you please tell me out of your addons which are the ones for the energy meter and chi points as well as the big buffs icons?
thanks in advance!
Don't think I can post real links yet, but this is what I'm usin': i971 . photobucket . com /albums/ae198/blahblah42/MonkUI1.jpg
Just remove the spaces.
It's Tukui, with Debuff Filter, and grid in the bottom right. I use a razer mamba, and the two buttons next to the left click are bound to F11 and F12, hence the weird keybinds for my defensive abilities.

I've found that a lot of people just run too many addons when they start to have issues with them. Plus they run a lot of addons that do complicated things, like auctioneer and tomtom. I don't like those either, I stick to fairly simple addons, though dbm and recount/skada aren't particularly simple.
